polka dot sailor dress

Dress...I adore you.

I know this style is old school, but a navy blue dress with a conservative-ish print...anywhere from knee to calf length, with anything from no sleeves, to 3/4 actually quite useful. Even better if it doesn't require ironing. The fabric should be lightweight, but not flimsy.

I'm beginning to think this:

short camisole better than this:

stretch camisole

I love the idea of a stretchy camisole that stays up at the neck, and stays down at the hem...but the original camisole just seems like so much fabric. If only they made a regular-length "ShamWow of camisoles" camisole.

And, the short version comes in only black or white. The long cami boasts 46 colors, for crying in a bucket.

I realize I've never gotten around to linking to other fashion blogs.

Partly because I don't see my blog as a fashion blog. I'm too lazy to take those nifty outfit-a-day pics, I don't bother listing where I got anything; in fact I post things I never got anyway. Moreover, this used to function as more of a beauty blog, and, before that, a personal meaningless blog. I've been blogging since the late 1990's iirc. This won't remain a fashion blog.

And partly it's too much work to do much else with this blog beyond porting it from its current, soon-to-be-deprecated FTP format.

But I do read other fashion blogs. In fact I've been a bit amazed at how many of them there are now...good ones.

I started out reading Fashion for Nerds, for obvious reasons (pretty sure I googled "fashion for nerds"). :)

From there, I began to follow academichic, which features a team of "Three feminist PhD candidates at a Midwest university, on a crusade against the ill-fitting polyester suit of academic yore."

Ah...that's it. I've been slowly trying the links on Fashion For Nerds' sidebar.

I read J.Crew blogs, but not religiously (I don't shop 'Crew enough to do so). They're incredibly useful, given how many 'Crew items are offered only online or in catalogs, and for the 'Crew Final Sale.
