Thank you everyone for your kind well-wishings - I am so relieved to be feeling better! Hot weather has also returned, and my office is suddenly less Arctic, so I'm glad to be getting in a few more wears of summery things. Though I can't believe that "no white shoes after Labour Day" is an actual thing that people care about, can you?

A well-made dress always feels like such a treat to me - the extra hooks and eyes, bra-strap holder snaps, tethers to the lining to prevent it flying up over my head, and even pockets. All these little ways of saying, "I'm looking out for you." Thank you, dress, you are a good friend. And super-floofy besides.

I've come across two other fashion bloggers with these same shoes - the wonderful Stacey of Gray Skies, and Jessica of What I Wore. Over at Fashion for Giants, I also lately admired Gracey's belt; it totally sproinged my matchy-brain and made me think of this dress.

Together with being on the mend, I'm so happy to have my usual watch restored to me from being fixed - it's another one of those precious early-mid-'90's items I've worn near-daily since. Besides wedding rings, are there any things you wear, any "constants" which you don't feel like yourself without?
