but not this lace dress and here's why

unmemorable business lunch on west side, stopped at Time Warner Center on the way back thinking dinner might include something nice

from Bouchon Bakery. Lines were too long. Oh, well.

Stepped into JCrew. Lace tank dress. Looks like a macramé project run amok.
Even on hangers many of the loopy things were drooping or coming loose. The circle part of the lace is about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. The hem of one displayed on a mannequin came down to where her cheeks would have ended had she been a Real Girl. Didn't have measuring tape in bag, approximated with sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper. Seam from underarm to hem, size 4, approximately 17 inches.

Comment of the week (and it's only Tuesday!) - unsolicited helpful remark from SA: "That's such a great layering piece."

I love white lace in the summer, I especially love large-scale cotton lace, but because of the loops I'm giving this one a miss. I think the loops might get caught on stuff. Like other people's purses. Or jewelry.


  1. The loops may also get caught on your hand, your child or your coffee cup. Oh no, more lace gone wrong.
    I am a new follower and I love your writing. You crack me up.

  2. welcome, DaniBP, I love your blog! I'm kind of new at this blogging business and for the first 6 months I couldn't even figure out the mechanics, but I'm having a good time with it now.


As Alice Roosevelt Longworth said, if you've got anything bad to say, sit next to me! No, really, please remember to be kind, and don't say anything fred's mother would not approve of (Diner's mom didn't approve of anything. Including fred.)
