just another black dress.

finding the perfect basics, like a simple black maxi dress, can be an expensive task. you might purchase several wrongs before you find that almost perfect one. i would consider this the perfect black maxi dress except that it's two sizes too big. i have the straps tied up in knots, but i'll eventually sew them properly. until them, here's to another almost perfect black dress.

happy father's day to all the dads out there. and if you ladies want a simple side dish to add to your father's day meal, scroll down for a recipe.

what's something you buy repeatedly until you get it right?
