Dress Pursuit

I gotta say, the Bandha experiment didn't work out too well. The dress came in the mail, I put it on, and my husband's response was, "Um... you're not going to like it." My husband is the best. He is so smart. I value his honesty way more than I can accurately describe.

The dress has gone back. It made me look like a Mormon, and that's just not a look I ever want for myself.

In other fashion news, I am watching the first season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and it's triggering major fashion flashbacks. Figures, since it aired in 1997, the year I graduated high school. The tiny black skirts always worn with tall black boots, the perfect mini-dresses, the unique overcoats, the white tees with cutesy screen-prints. She was totally copping some riot grrl tendencies, wasn't she? I can clearly recall longing for the perfect dress that didn't cling too much, but just enough, and that would make my legs look miles long.

Le sigh.

Different day, different dress, same searching.


  1. I love watching old shows and movies, great fashion inspiration. Good luck with the dress, I have felt the same way about the perfect skirt for months now.
    I've become a follower.

  2. Oh no! What a shame about the dress. I hate having to return stuff..
    I look at fashion when I watch 80's and 90's movies too :)
    And I graduated '98 so I know what you mean..

  3. I'm bummed for you about the Bandha dress. It looks so pretty and drapey in the photo on the site.

    I completely agree with you on the harem pants! I'm not sure why anyone would want a dropped-crotch look?!

  4. I'm not bummed about the dress at all, and I completely agree with you about the husband!

    I found your RSS feed, so yay!
