I wanted this photo to emphasize the old-fashioned, romantic aspect of the outfit. To elicit a lingering summer afternoon, a woman whiling away the hours while waiting for her swain to come and sweep her off her feet......
But i'm a modern girl, so i went out and got my prince! And our landlord was truly a knight in shining armor - snaking out the plumbing as well as re-connecting the flapper chain. He left less than an hour after he arrived, flush with success, to go watch US v. Ghana in the world cup.
It was time for me to shine, in my role as the fairy princess of disinfectants........but i'll spare you the vision of loveliness i wore for those duties, and show you the front of my kicking-around-the-house-on-a-hot-day outfit instead.
