flow with me

Rejoice! For I have finally have a short caftan thing!
Ok, well I'm not really all that excited about it. The excitement was just for show. See, I've been wanting some lightweight flowy ethnic dresses for this summer and I found this one on eBay. It came from India, free shipping, low price, blah blah bloo. As soon as I got it I tried it on and it smelled of wet dog and the seams started to pop open at the sides. The dress originally came with a drawstring to cinch the garment under the bust... but on me the drawstring sat above my massive boobs. No amount of pulling and tugging could have made it work, so I just pulled it out. It works out ok and I still like it.
 BUT a couple days ago, I went to Ross Dress for Less to look for a few more summer dresses to tie me over for the next two months, only to find they have tons of these caftan tops in the "one size fits all" section for a few bucks less than eBay. PLUS they smell better and you don't have to wait  to get them. So yeah, I bought more.
  So enough about my smelly foreign garments...
We finally found out Monday.
Sorry, River. I tried to make you a little brother, but I'm just too dang feminine to make another boy.

  1. The expression on River in that photo is priceless! A girl? That'll be a whole 'nother ride.
    That happens to me with clothes too - I'll want something real bad, wait for a sale, scoop it up, and then see it even cheaper next door. Great caftan thing. It looks breezy for summer.

  5. Yay, a girl! Now you'll have a set! Have you got a name picked out?

    I love that caftan - it looks so comfy, but fun and colorful, too. I wasn't going to buy anything new, but I might have to check those out. (If they pass the smell test, that is.)
