and all of that jiving around
I don't generally subscribe to the idea of grunging up a pretty dress with a leather jacket and motorcycle boots... for one thing, I don't own a leather jacket and motorcycle boots look awful on me, and for another I tend to steer away from the lacier dresses that work with that look. But this particular dress is so creampuff (see here) that I thought it could use some playing down. I quite like the layered result, which is more casual and more comfortable.
I wore this outfit to Europe's largest music store in Cologne (probably more on that later) and then to a party. Albert and I cycled to the party; that is, he cycled and I perched on the back of the bike, cursing and moaning at even intervals. Most uncomfortable means of transportation ever! Although it was better on the way back when I sat on a cardigan. Anyway, yay for trying new things I guess!
P.S. I've had this sweater for fourteen years! Finally fixed the six moth-holes (though have discovered a seventh, grrr)
