Strawberries and Cream - Angel's Pick from Harajuku
I mentioned a few weeks ago that I'd bought 2 dresses while shopping in Harajuku, in Tokyo, because Angel and I each had a favorite. This is Angel's favorite. Anyone want to hazard a guess at what his favorite fruit is?
Wow! You're right! How could you possibly have known that?
Oh...yeah...I'm wearing about 257 of them.
I wasn't as big a fan of this dress because I think the cut is a bit less figure-flattering (us girls always think on such practical terms), and I'm not the biggest appreciator of bows--and this dress has only slightly fewer bows than strawberries. It does, however, meet my style criteria of being one 1) Not too boring and 2) The sort of dress that's not easily forgotten, so I went along with Angel's strawberry-induced suggestion. It should be noted that I don't buy all the clothes Angel wants me to. I buy about 1% of what he suggests--if this is the 1% that makes it through, imagine his usual shopping advice.
Somewhat surprisingly, it's really easy to feel confident in a dress such as this. It's like--if these bows and these strawberries are confident enough to flaunt their existence all over the place, then I should at least be confident enough to go on a date with my favorite man wearing a dress that might attract a confused stare or two...
Do you ever listen to your husband's fashion advice? Does it look anything like a strawberry shortcake reincarnated as a dress?
