The preppy-est thing I saw today.

Oh I went to a garden party.....
It was an academic garden party in the steamy rain. There we were, a bunch of people dressed nicely, but not too fashion-y. I believe that despite the weather, there were some gents wearing tweed jackets with oval elbow pads.

And then she walked into the tent to show us all up:


Yes, a crisp white dress with purses printed on it. The ensemble was topped off with a bright colored sun hat, dainty designer handbag and springy sandals.

She KNEW how to dress for a garden party.

Just goes to show that we all excel at something.
"And you can't please everyone, so you've got to please yourself.."

A purse dress! And sunhat! Very nice.

Don't you wish you had worn a dress with a white background and little pictures of potato chip bags all over it? Or bowling balls and pins.

You could have sidled up to her and pointed to the little purses and said, enthusiastically, "I love your dress!" and waited to hear the follow-up. That would be awesome.

See, when people just try that wee bit too hard, it's just sad. This woman seems like she did just that. All she ever wanted was a hug from somebody who actually wanted to hug her.
