I am totally digging the new "Laura" dress from J. Crew. However, I'm not sure I'd be digging the "hammered silk" after more than 10 minutes wearing it. Sounds like one big wrinkle waiting to happen. Plus it's only online so no chance of testing with a quick romp around the dressing room.
We have a "swanky event" to go to on Saturday, and as is typical I've only shopped for the house and not for Laura. So unless I (a) fashion my bed linens into a retro evening dress of sorts or (b) find something in my size at, say, a yard sale Saturday that is black tie appropriate, clean and ready to wear same night, I'm kind of in a bit of a jam.
I do have fancy black shoes, though. Maybe that will detract from the duvet muumuu I'll be wearing.
