Ta dah! The vintage neon polyester dress I just couldn’t bear to put back on the rack at the Goodwill. Sure, sure…thoughts whizzed through my head like: “It’s not practical” “You’ll never wear it” and “Polyester doesn’t breathe“, but could I really not take home such an obvious example of a Liz Dress? NO WAY. I washed it and then threw it on to show Josh.
“Put on the rainbow platforms!” he encouraged me, but I put on my hideous 90’s platform sneakers instead, which clashed incredibly with the yellow hiking socks I happened to be wearing at the time. He took about 10 shots of me dancing around like a maniac, which will not be posted here. Because, ahem. Just because.
Of course, things didn’t really take off until I pulled out the black light…
…because neon clothing is infinitely more exciting under a black light, isn’t it? You can take the girl out of the rave, but you can never take the rave out of the girl!
Hey, where’d those hands come from? Bonus: I made a 10 second video of myself bobbling around lewdly in the dress while Josh provides the beatboxing soundtrack, and had the nerve to post it on Instagram, so here’s that, if you enjoy that sort of thing. I DO!
You may have noticed that my blog appearance has changed. I have been wanting, for a very very long time, to use a wordpress theme that allows me to post larger photos, and this was one of the (free) ones that had that option. I’m not crazy about the background–I like the design on the top but hate the background color–it’s an earth tone, for cry yi! So that may change. Also I think the font size for reading is a tad small, but I just read you have to pay an additional 30 dollars a year to change it (!), so if that’s the case…NOPE. I’m already paying my blog host money for the “pleasure” of having my own .com, and I pay Flickr every year to have an account, so…that’s enough money for this ol’ thing.
Today I’ll be enjoying my last day of freedom before going back to work tomorrow. The sun’s shining, so it looks like dogs + park will be enjoyable. Plus, I re-did the entire Phyllis Diller painting, and it’s going to be 10,000 times better. Yeah!
