When I saw Kate Middleton in this dress a while back, I thought, “I have a dress that can do that.” Of course, hers is a dress fit for a princess and mine was a $10 find at Forever 21… But six one half dozen the other right?
Another way Kate and I are dissimilar is that she has occasions to which she is invited that require fancy princess dresses, while I on the other hand do not. This means that this dress has been worn two times since I bought it about… 5 years ago. Poor little princess dress.
I decided it wasn’t fair to keep the ol’ gal locked up any longer just because I don’t live a fancy princess life. So I wore her to the little knitting group I when to last night. That’s right, I sat around with a couple of friends, their cats, and a few skeins of yarn while we chatted, knitted away, and watched Sherlock. Don’t judge guys, knitting is cool… no, it’s not. But it’s fun in a grandma-ish kind of way okay?!
This super nerdy night was fun, but not really the fancy dress occasion. To make the outfit more knitting night appropriate, I decided to put on one of my favorite over-sized sweaters and some converse (we all know how I like to take fancy and make it causal). So I guess I’m a crazy knitting cat lady on top and a fancy princess on the bottom… oddly enough I have worn outfits with stranger descriptions than that.
