I titled this post after my "butterfly" dress. This was actually an impulse buy from my last trip to the farmers market. I couldn't resist! It's flows so beautifully. The purchase made me happy. Then Tuesday when I wore it to a birthday, dinner I was happy all over again. Pretty good, two happy's out of a $15.00 impulse buy (that possibly is cheaper than wine happy). When I got home from the dinner I asked the Man to snap a couple of shots for the blog. He's getting better at it and is now even telling me how to pose. Not that it really helped the photos but it was a lot of fun. After a year and a half of blogging I am still self conscious about having my picture taken. I guess I'm just used to the tri pod and zinga-zanga pics are done and ready to edit. He does seem to take longer but, he's like that. I'm also experimenting a bit with color resolution and some of the other things that photo shop has to offer. I tell you, that is an amazing program but not for the weak at heart and by no means user friendly. Everything I have learned has been from on line videos. I just watch stop and start until I have it. The sad thing is, I have been so distracted that by the time I get ready to use that feature again I can't remember how to do it and have to start all over again! Oh, well. The trials of a 50+ blogger never end.
Many cities are having their 4th of July celebrations this weekend. So have fun, remember what the holiday stands for (I'm a Navy Mom) and be safe.
Does anybody know what the style of this dress is called? I really do love it and was thinking about making a couple more.............that's how I roll!
