road to nowhere

according to my photographer(husband/legal aid/tampon buyer when i am sick), it was the end of this road or a port-a-potty next to a pile of junk for photos today. beggars can't be choosers when we are on the way home from church and everyone was hungry and cranky.
dress- thrifted
cardigan- ann taylor loft
belt- dillards
shoes- jessica simpson
necklace- vera wang for kohl's
i thought this dress looked fun when i saw it at goodwill. my husband has asked me on a few occasions how an item of clothing can be "fun". my guess is that if you can dance in it and make cookies in it and not have to suck in after you eat the entire bowl of batter and then drop the dress on the floor and pick it up a few weeks later and not bat an eye and put it back on, then it's a fun dress.
i think my necklace looks like a fancy cat collar or something miss piggy would wear. i've always appreciated miss piggy's philosophy on life: "never eat more than you can lift." or better yet, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye."

great color combo. and especially the dress. it probably would've looked great next to even some port-a-potties. next time maybe.
