I’m back! I did my bare minimum MMM commitment of three days last week, but I’m hoping to do more this week.
Today is mine and Man Friend’s sixth wedding anniversary, and it was a beautiful, sunny day in NY. We decided to celebrate our anniversary like most couples do– watching silent movies (a screening of Sunrise at the Nitehawk Cinema) and eating hot dogs (at the always-delicious Crif Dogs)! An occasion so fancy requires a bit of dressing up, so I came up with this:
dress: me-made Lonsdale dress
bag: vintage (eBay)
location: Williamsburg, Brooklyn, about a block away from the East River
I have mixed feelings about this dress. I made it in September, I think, so I didn’t get much wear out of it before the weather turned cold. I love the style– it’s so unique and pretty– but the print is just. so. loud. I seldom wear prints, and this is so crazy! Also, the cotton batting that I used for bust padding has gotten a little lumpy and weird. So yeah.
Alright, to all you moms out there, Happy Mother’s Day! Hope you have a lovely day (and your offspring brings you tons of presents)!
