Yellow Fever

I thought I would start 2011 off with something nice and bright. In saying that - you don't get much brighter than this extreme shade of yellow.. Right? Didn't think so.

I pretty much love everything about this dress. I love the colour. I love that it's strapless. I love that it has an extremley high side split,. I love the flamenco ruffles. I love that it has a train. (assuming that isn't just because I'm too short for it!) I love that I already had the right shade of shoes and hairflower to accessorize with. I love that it has a vaguely "Love Boat" feel to it. I love it's overall ridiculousness. I love that it has all of these qualities in the one dress- and it only cost me $30!

Now I am in a familiar conundrum. That is where on earth am I going to be able to wear this? Usually I have a theory about not waiting for a reason to wear something. Wear it for the hell of it. While that may work for brightly coloured 70's summer dresses- full length flamenco styled ball gowns are a little bit different. I doubt very much that I could rock on up to work un-noticed in this little beauty. I'm sure I would raise a few eyebrows popping down to the supermarket too. That leaves me to attempt to be patient in awaiting the right time to bust this baby out. I'm not a patient person at all- so if I get sick of waiting I may yet host a dress up party where I can come as this guy or one of these. Whatever the reason for it's first official wearing - rest assured I will be damn excited about it!
