I finally wore the black-and-white Fatina dress this weekend. It's been done for ages, but I wanted to save it for something special, so I wore it (with the jacket) to the family birthday dinner yesterday.
We're starting to lose summer, so I'm really glad I made a jacket to go with it because I really liked the dress - it's comfortable, it's a good length and I love - LOVE - the floral trim.
Unlike the Fatina dress, I couldn't wait to wear my new Ottobre jacket. This was taken by my office receptionist/staff photographer who went out on maternity leave at 3:00 p.m. today, after sitting at the front desk having contractions since 11:00 a .m. She didn't want to waste any of her 8 weeks sitting at home waiting to give birth, and I'd say she got her way.
I will miss her for many reasons, not the least of which is her willingness to take photos of latest projects, even today, when she couldn't actually balance and stand up. She scooted her chair around the polished lobby floor because she couldn't let a new piece go unphotographed.
So do I save everything until she comes back, or do I find a new office photographer?
