"I was overcome with a powerful feeling of optimism."

trying on spring garb, originally uploaded by turnsharp.

I am so glad this dress still fits me. I am struggling to romanticize the spring of my wardrobe. I am unhappy with the way I pull and tug at my tunics and light dresses as they just don't fit right. But, this dress is just fine. It was hanging there all sad and limp at the thrift store about 4 years ago and hot damn don't I have a granny that doesn't blink an eye at sewing tulle all around the hem to give it some va va vooom. And don't I have a granny that slapped me on the ass when it was finished and I twirled round on old rugs in her living room.
