The Newest Dress
This dress arrived in the mail yesterday. The fabric has an incredible sheen to it, so much so that I thought the dress was made out of taffeta. When it arrived, I realised it was a glossy polished cotton. It's not perfect - I had to mend it a little, and perform some stain-removing maneouvres (trying saying that ten times fast) but it's worth it. It fits beautifully.

I dressed to the sounds of the Japanese "pajama pop" band Lullatone, this morning. Here is a little stop motion video of theirs. The song is "Little Songs About Raindrops":
