Rhinostones

In high school I had this huge rhinestone phase. It was after my hippie phase and after my mildly gothic phase (not really gothic, but there were steel-toed boots and lots of black and lace and smudgy eyeliner). I was dressing up a lot and gluing sequins on all my stuff. I'm still a sucker for costume jewelry and cocktail rings. What I am getting at is that I have always loved gaudy things. I love rhinestones, I love glitter sweaters, I love kitschy items that would scream "costume" to anyone but me.

By the way, the other day I wore my glitter cheetah print sweater to accordion class. My instructor was SO impressed. She has never commented on anything I have ever worn and she actually stopped in the middle of the lesson and was like, "That is such a lovely sweater. Where did you get that? You could wear that anywhere, you could wear that to the opera." She did. She said I could wear it to the opera. I love her.

Anyway, I recently made the mistake of going on Modcloth and I saw this:


It's so wonderful. It's exactly what it looks like. A sweaterdress with a rhinoceros on it. I've suddenly realized that I would like to own some sweaterdresses. They are warmer than normal dresses. You can just throw them on over leggings and you are basically wearing bedazzled pajamas. Also, I missed out on this:




 Already sold out, what a tragedy.

God that unicorn skirt is awesome. And how many clothing phases have you gone through? I weep for your poor discarded clothing from each phase.

Well, that's the thing Kyle. It takes me ages to admit that I don't need an item of clothing once I have stopped wearing it. I don't usually discard things until they are stained or really, really don't fit.

Ahh true, yet how many pieces of clothing do you still keep that have mustard stains on them?

I would post a picture of me wearing a sweater dress, but I don't want to scare away the readers.

Kyle-what are you referring to? Did I recently wear something with mustard stains on it?

And Tony- you should. Guest post?

Okay Kyle, you're off the hook. Today I was getting dressed and I looked down at my dress and realized that I have a mustard stain on it. Dammit.
