I mentioned yesterday that I made a dress that was not so much to wear on easter as it was made of easter. Still there are much worse things to be made of. Like labour day or 70′s era polyester.
Comments I have thus far received on this dress:
“awesome”- from my sister (who is awesome, and doesn’t like to stifle my creativity, for better or worse)
“maybe you should start a line of clothing for kindergarten teachers” from my mother
“bewildered stare” from about 20 ferry passengers (please note bewildered stare was not so much a comment as an actual bewildered stare
and ‘nothing’ from my boss, although I’m sure she just too busy trying to calm her doubts about hiring a girl who would wear a yellow rabbit and easter egg dress to work like it was a just another pant suit.
What I have found about wearing a dress made of easter (or, I assume, any other holiday) is that one cannot take themselves too seriously or look grumpy. A dress made of holiday must at all times be worn with a self-depreciating smile that precludes grumpiness. For this reason there are several people, mostly politicians, who I would like to see wear this dress. What a terrible time not to have photoshop. If anyone out there does have photoshop and could put this dress on Stephen Harper or Newt Gingrich I would award you one billion cool points and a stuffed octopus*. Thank You.
