Polyester: A Love Affair
lilac sheer tights(aka pantyhose:)- hue
platform sandals- franco sarto
i've prob said this before, but a dress with a cute print gets me every time. this one i had on this weekend is one of my favorites-- i've had it for many years now and it never lets me down with its comfort (pockets!) and surprising versatility. and guess what? its made of the fabric that's scorned by many and once loved by all-- good ol' polyester.
i've found my philosophy on poly has changed over the years. in high school and my early 20s i thought it was the cat's meow, then i went through a snobby "no-freaking way i'm wearing poly" phase and in the last few years, depending on how cute the dress is, and the weight of the fabric, i've got no problem at all wearing it. (all poly is definitely not made the same i can tell you that!) plus, since i can just throw it in the wash, its the perfect fabric to wear when i want to snuggle with my favorite four-legged monster without worrying about dirty paw prints. yeah, i'd say a little bit of poly is probably in my wardrobe to stay.
