Last week we housed 5 adults and 2 children for 24 hours.
And all I got was this awesome Silk Crepe De Chine thingamajig.
One of said adults, the six-foot-fifty-eight one, was sporting a fabulous, flowy, silky pants-thing that had holes for your footsies and shirring at the top. This dame, let’s call her The Diva, wore them because she knew I would specifically be fascinated by them. Indeed I was. I made her take them off that evening so’s I could study ’em.
With two screaming nutjobs in the house in various states of undress, it wasn’t weird at all.
Come the morning, the happy horde left in a hot rush, and my reward was deciphering this design on a mysterious-but-famous designer Silk Crepe De Chine panel print from Mood Fabrics online. This birdcage yardage had been sitting on my table since spring– after failing miserably on an Anna Sui print, I didn’t want to ruin more prettiness. So, unfortunately she’s as gone as the happy horde is…but try these fabulous panel prints, or this great designer silk crepe de chine.
Hours after their departure, I threw open the bathroom door, revealing a towel clad Ruggy (what is it about this tale and states of undress?) and shouted I DID IT! Arms thrust high in the air over my head, goooooooal!!! My glee turned to absolute euphoria as Ruggy slowly raised his eyebrows and declared…. I like it.
Y’all these are basically drop crotch pants…. and Ruggy likes them.
Apparently, a lot of men like them. I get the most intriguing catcalls in these. Older gentleman look at me with an appreciative, respectful eye. Younger, not-so-gentle-men bring their remarks down to a hushed tone, and a truck tooted his horn with the lightest of taps, three times, as I strode across the crosswalk. Toot? Toot toot, m’lady?
You can get your own toots when I share the tutorial for these at the end of the month on my blog! I’ve worn the two pair I’ve made more times than I can count– breezy and cool, and you can lounge around in them with no fear of showing yo’ lady parts in a gust of summer bbq wind.
Because sometimes it’s good to be dressed.
