I’m amazed that gorgeous blogger Vyque of Fasshonaburu got a picture of us at the Independent Fashion Bloggers Dress Up Soiree in which I’m smiling but not showing teeth. I’m sure I haven’t taken a picture like that in 20 years.
Hmmm. My memory is going. Have I mentioned that Independent Fashion Bloggers is having a contest? If you haven’t done it already, click here to give my photo five hearts so I can be a winner.
UPDATED TO ADD: Gorgeous blogger Annie Spandex asked me to explain the beads. Because I’m lazy, I’m just going to quote from an earlier post: “The red necklace I appear to be wearing in the photo is actually dozens of strands of Mardi Gras beads. People were supposed to give out beads if they liked your outfit (taking one’s top off was not required, though not expressly forbidden either). Thanks to my heart-wrenching WWD story and the aggressive bead-seeking action of the Fasshonaburu girls, I eventually staggered home with 47 necklaces.” There ya go!
