I'm so happy to have finally gotten my hands on this dress. It was one of my favorites from Dear Creature's fall line. Honestly, I really just like how simple it is. I have a lot of patterned dresses and literally only three or four that are a solid color. I'm not trying to convert my whole wardrobe into things that are one solid color but I'd definitely like to add a few more. This dress will be perfect for summertime, I so desperately wanted to wear it without a sweater and tights alas the weather wasn't permitting. Yep, I'm already daydreaming about summer. I'm not looking forward to winter - at all. We actually got our first snow on Tuesday. Eeep!
On the day I took these pictures I wandered down to the beach to get some photos of my beach glass collection. I found a nice spot on the beach and set down my camera bag. When I looked down to my bag to get out the beach glass I spotted this beautiful dragonfly right beside it. Other than a bent wing, which I'm pretty sure I can fix somehow, it's in amazing shape for being found dead on the really, really rocky beach. I carefully brought it home so I could pin it. I've been reading and watching lots of videos on pinning insects lately. I have a pretty cool collection of dead bugs I've found that were just too neat to leave behind. Pinned insects are one of my favorite things to look at at the Natural History museum so I'm pretty stoked to have my own collection soon! I just bought the final things (pins and a pinning board) I need to get started yesterday.
