Do Flashers Get Dental?

This morning I took a new approach to my never-ending battle with stuff and decided to fill a bag of clothing donations to bring to the Goodwill before work. I grabbed anything I did not wear in the last year* and threw it in the bag. Except for this dress.

I bought this dress in 2001 and have worn it three times. One reason for its limited use is, of course, that it did not fit for many of those years. The other reason is that the dress has a snap closures that unsnap with the slightest provocation (such as sitting down or reaching to shake someone's hand) (I should probably have a tailor replace them with a zipper or something but I have not yet ruled out a career as a Flasher). Therefore I need to wear a full slip underneath it and make sure I plan to have a low movement day. In spite of these handicaps (and the fact that the dress is probably way out of style), I cannot quit this dress. So tonight it will get put back in the closet with the hanger in the worn direction and will live to stay another year.

* this is where the "hanger trick" comes in handy (every time you wear an item - put it back in your closet with the hanger facing the opposite direction as the other clothes. This makes it easy to pull all the unused hangers when doing a quick declutter.

Dress: ?
Shoes: Urban Outfitters
Bracelet: gift from mr. deathstar

P.S. That black furry thing on my shoulder is not a rat, but actually my hair.

P.P.S. Maybe I should have let you think it was a rat rather than admit that my hair looks like that today.
