Hooray for the Fluffy Dress Award!

Thank you to everyone who nominated me for the Blogger Inspiration Award, which comes with its own truly inspirational fluffy dress:

Obviously I need to wear that when I teach. Along with one of those powdered wigs that's about 2 feet high and has model ships from the Admiral's fleet, but that is a post for another day.

I believe heu mihi and LumpenProf and Belle at Scattered and Random have awarded me this trophy, and possibly others who I have forgotten about in the process of catching up on my bloglines.

Here are the rules as handed down with the award, which I am then going to break.
  • Please put the logo of the award (above) on your blog if you can make it work with your format.
  • Link to the person from whom you received the award.
  • Nominate 7 or more blogs.
  • Put the links of those blogs on your blog.
  • Leave a message on their blogs to tell them.
I'm glad that so many people enjoy my stuff enough to give me an award, because you can never have too many fluffy dresses. For example, when Historiann linked to her new ski pants that she is testing out this weekend, I saw that I absolutely needed this dress:

particularly because I don't own a single little black dress. On the other hand, perhaps I need it in this really pretty pattern?

On the other other hand, plain black would really set off the two-foot-wig-with-the-Admiral's-ships quite nicely. Unless all the powder dropping would look too much like dandruff? Hmm.

In the spirit of inspiring fluffy dresses everywhere, I hearby nominate anyone who currently does not wear enough fluffy dresses. Gentlemen? I'm looking at you.

Go for the black dress! One needs a black dress.

I disagree--I'd go for the more colorful dress.

My dashboard isn't letting me know about all of the people who link to me, so I only stumbled across your link here by accident. My readers are so shallow that those ski pants are the number one link they're clicking on my blog today! Heh. Maybe I'll have to actually try skiing in them, next time I head back up into the mountains...

Anyway, hope your semester is off to a good start. Good luck with the dress choice!

through caution to the wind dear friend and get both!

I agree with Ann; the second dress is really pretty and really beautiful. But, if push came to shove, I would follow Maude's advice: Get 'em both!

No no, dear Maude, I am too cautious --- particularly when it's a new online company and I am not sure of the sizing. I only went with the one. So far.
