Take a Bow

As the temperature here keeps rising and I get increasingly too lazy to be bothered with mixing and matching skirts and pants and tops I am relieved that I brought this little black dress with a bow detail at the neckline from H&M – it looks chic, doesn’t wrinkle, and is so light and airy when I wear it (and, I admit, I feel pretty glamorous when I wear it with sunglasses). I’m leaving Cambridge (sniff sniff) tomorrow morning for a three day conference at Exeter University with the promising title of “Engendering Gender” (where I will be presenting a portion of one of my dissertation chapters and praying that no senior academics flay me) and I am planning on keeping this dress at the top of my suitcase so I can easily pull it out and don it at the conference (I’m thinking it will be perfect for the cocktail party/reception that’s happening on the first day).

I love the Anna Magnani comparison! I feel very Italian 50s glam in it too.

I am a fan of black all year long personally -- I think I have an inner goth trying to escape.
