This was my first day to experiment with the timer on my phone. I've known about it for a while, but never really played with it. Not bad for the front camera on a phone. That's a shot facing from the back of the back yard towards the house, because I couldn't get a decent shot in the patio. The black animal is actually my dog, Kasumi. She's all of 12 weeks old, which is all the explanation I'm giving for why a Labrador retriever mix is that small.
I was hesitant to try this dress on up in Chicago. Dresses with empire waistlines generally do not play well with my body shape, but I loved the neckline and pattern. So, I gave it a shot. I'd say it worked out well, even if it is all polyester. I know, I know, I'm breaking my natural fabrics rule AGAIN, but let's face it, sometimes, you just hafta deal with less than optimal fabrics when a piece of clothing is otherwise perfect and needs NO alterations.
