Dress, Shipley & Halmos for Uniqlo (I am fairly sure that
when Uniqlo makes clothes, they ask themselves “what would
D want to wear?” and design accordingly); shoes, Seychelles.

Winona of Daddy Likey would tsk-tsk-tsk at me for this, I’m certain. “Have you learned nothing from Don’t Show-cha Your Chocha?”, she’d ask. But I am known to wear things that tiptoe along that border between “rather short” and “ridiculously short”, and I tend to do so without caring one whit.

She’d further disapprove of my decision to bike to dinner in this dress, and she might have a point there. I was going to layer shorts under it for the bike trip and remove them when I got to the restaurant, honest: but then I realized that I’d have nowhere to store those shorts upon arrival, so shorts were out. In a nod to practicality, I did change into flats for biking, rather than wear these 4 ½” heels for my night out.

I desperately wish that I’d had my camera at 11 pm, when this outfit went from “nice dinner out with friends” into “I biked several miles through a rainstorm and arrived at the bar soaked to the skin and dumping water out of my shoes”. I have never appreciated the quick-drying properties of polyester quite so much as I did last night.

HAWT. You should wear short skirts all the time.

I think I'd actually say, "Have you learned nothing from Don't Show-cha Your Chocha? GOOD, because you look hot!"

And then I would get really jealous of you for being able to look cute on a bike. :)

That is one motherfucking outstanding dress.
