You people! What do you want from me? A new blog post? Well, I’m working on a big post for next week; trying to finish up a guest post for Shrimpton Couture; worrying about the guest posts I promised Sandra and La Belette Rouge ages ago; testing out new functionality for the blog; and making some new jewelry whenever I manage to tear myself away from the computer. Plus I’m doing all this while in a permanent peach-sangria haze. You try that! It’s difficult.
While I don’t have the time and energy to do a proper WendyB post here at this very second, I have been keeping up the posts on my Francis blog* because there’s been so much happening at ye olde Christian Francis Roth studio. Check out all the awesome peeps who have been visiting us there (and joining us for post-visit peach sangria).
Meanwhile, if you’re not up-to-date on the super-viral Francis subway map dress, you can catch up on that here. I finally got a subway map dress for myself (the last one in the studio, thank you very much, though it was a couple of sizes too big) and Jean the amazing seamstress took this picture as she was altering it.
Even the fashion police couldn’t hate on this fun dress (you know what I normally think of self-proclaimed fashion police) but feel free to go over there anyway and leave a comment telling them how much you love this dress. If you want to be my subway map twin, act fast. Nordstrom has the dress reduced to $186.90 but only size 12 is left. At Bloomie’s, the dress is still at $262.50, but at least they have sizes 6 and 8 in addition to 12. I’d recommend going down a size from what you usually wear. Of course, if you’re in New York, it doesn’t matter what size you get because Jean will take care of your alterations needs. I have to brag about Jean for a moment. She’s featured in InStyle’s new Makeover issue and I will be scanning that in here eventually, but since it might take me a while, run out and buy the magazine so you can admire her work.
*All good things must come to an end. As I reported here, I stopped writing the Francis blog after six months. Later on, it was deleted, so I took out all the dead links in this post.
