By some strange twist of events, it appears that I will be attending the Grammy’s at the end of the month. Let’s take a moment…


Now that that’s taken care of, I have a very serious decision to make. What the F am I going to wear?!!??!! There is absolutely no way that I can compete with the $20,000 gowns of the rich and/or famous. So I just need to make what I have work. Luckily, whenever I’ve had an event or party to attend in the past three or so years, I’ve purchased a dress. Thus, I have a cornucopia of dresses in my closet to choose from.

I love the bright blue and the way it enlivens the abstract ikat-like design. I also love how it subtly references the 70s – whenever I wear it, I feel like I should be serving drinks and asking my party guests if they’d like to add their keys to the bowl.
