Bright as a full moon
Last night we had an awesome Goulasch dinner at our kite cafe, which we just finished renovating and so I chose to wear my favorite babydoll dress from This Kid Loves Vintage, in an attempt to hide as much Goulasch consumption as possible. This has got to be one of my favorite dresses ever, and I had only ever worn it twice. It used to be white with red and blue flowers on it, but then after the second time wearing it, I got It back from the wash with the red from the flowers running all over the dress. I was so upset I cried and changed the laundry service for our restaurant, as a sign of protest against the idiot laundry people who ruined it. In desperation, I decided to try my first dye job. I picked blue because I thought it would cover the stains best while maintaining the flower print. Last night was the first time I wore it out in blue, and though I really loved it in white, the blue is starting to grow on me.
Notice my boyfriends ever improving photography skills, when he directed me into being still because he was going to shoot me with no flash so he could get the full effect of the moon. Boyfriends are just so cute that way, arent they?
Of course after dinner, we were obligated to make our many stops down the beach, until we ended up at Juice Bar for some dancing on top of the bar, then Summerplace for dancing on top of tables, and finally at Smoke for some after hour grub, where we stuffed ourselves until we got sleepy. I got home at 5am, but couldnt sleep until sunrise.. my insomnia is getting really hard to control these days.
And just because I miss it so much, here is the white version of the dress, on the night of my birthday last march. (Yes, that is me hugging a tree, which I think I forgot to ever mention here, but tree hugging is something I quite enjoy doing, especially after a whole bottle of champagne on my own.)
Oh and before I go, here is a preview of my first tie-dye project. So so much fun, this whole tie-dye business.
