this is a dress i made ages ago.  it is poorly sewn and i wear it rarely but i still love it because it catches the light in such interesting ways.  and because it is red and’s another photo of it, complete with appearance by my dog ruger.  ain’t he a cutie?

outfit details: red and white dress was made by me – it was my final in my sewing class in college;  shoes were a gift from a coworker; silk flower in hair was found on my beloved ebay; dog is by jack russell

song inspiration: “bloodbuzz ohio” by the national.  this is a kickass live version of the single from their new album high violet which is being released in may and which i am highly and madly anticipating.  one of my very favorite bands in the world, the national sounds like what the inside of my brain looks like.  or something.  i cannot wait to hear the rest of the record.
