Doily of a Dress

It's been quite a busy week for me, and I am so grateful that it's finally Friday. Things at Local Marketing, Inc., are busier than ever. We are signing new clients and staffing up, which means chunks of my day are spent interviewing candidates. I know that's a good thing in the long run, but it's a definite time suck. Fortunately, we are finding some great digital marketing talent in the Atlanta area.

Today's dress is both casual and fun, perfect for a Friday.

Dress: BCBGMaxAzria Crochet Amberly Fit and Flare Dress

Pumps: Also from BCBGMaxAzria (no longer available)

This dress could easily go from day to night: Just change out the footwear (funky high heeled sandals would work), add a clutch and maybe some dangling earrings, and you're set for dinner or drinks.

In my case, I will be going home straight after work to crash on the couch. Chapin and I just started watching a new series, Stranger Things, on Netflix, and we are hooked. I love that it's set in the early 80s, and it even has 80s "It Girl" Winona Ryder back in a leading role. Looking at her, I realize why we hate for celebrities to seem older; it's a bitter reminder that we're getting older as well. Winona is in her 40s now, but she still looks great! I think her performances as Lydia, Veronica, Kim, Dinky, Lelaina, Jo, Finn, etc. are too fresh in my head. Can you name the movies those roles go along with?

The dress was recently worn by "Jennifer" on Days of Our Lives.

I remember when my sister, Gail, and I used to watch soaps, mostly during the summertime when school was out. We liked The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful, and our cousin, Alicia, got us hooked on General Hospital. It's funny to me that these shows just go on and on, often with the same people in the same roles. I guess that's why people love soaps; the drama never ends, and the characters are always more miserable than you are.

Have a great weekend!
