Totally jonesing for this dress. It's a cotton print, and made in the U.S. When first I saw it, I didn't think of, well, jonesing for it, but the more you look, the more useful it appears. Cotton and sleeveless, yet work-friendly, with lovely black piping detail—not only does it have pockets, the pockets are even piped. In back there are rows of shirring to make more fitted, yet it's not one of those dreary butt-cupping things. I don't normally gravitate toward prints over solid colors, if only because most prints don't appeal to me, but this print looks special.
Dire Straits - "Romeo and Juliet" (1981)
Juliet, the dice was loaded from the start And I bet, and you exploded in my heart And I forget, I forget the movie song When you gonna realize, it was just that the time was wrong?
This is one cataclysmic song; it has something of everything: touches of country & western, lyrics from an early 1960's pop song, a reference to the Romeo and Juliet play itself:
You promised me everything, you promised me thick and thin Now you just says oh Romeo yeah you know I used to have a scene with him
...a dash of West Side Story, a description of a musician (Knopfler, presumably) writing the song and playing it, all within the song itself. It's just fascinating. I remember this song, of course, and had liked it...oh well, I suppose I'm just having an 80's moment.
