-It has come to my attention that one of the only things that gets me out of bed in the morning is the thought that I'll be able to have a Diet Dew within a few short hours. 

-It has also come to my attention that the above statement may be a bit unhealthy.  Mentally and physically. 

-Conversely, I haven't been late to work since I started this luring myself out of bed with thoughts of Diet Dew habit. 

-All I'm saying is we humans do what we have to do.  It isn't always pretty. 

-I'm not really sure if the top I'm wearing today was meant to be a shirt or a dress.  Ever have that?

-There seem to be a number of women who would consider it a dress, at least from what I've seen at nightclubs (not that I know what those are, mom). 

-I personally don't consider any top that you can't comfortably bend over in without biker shorts underneath it to be a "dress."  But what do I know.  I'm wearing what I've decided to call a shress with cutoff jeans right now. 

-It sort of looks like I didn't have time to fully change after ballet practice? 

-Nope, it isn't cute.

-Also, I never took ballet, but I should have because my feet have freakishly high arches.

-Instead, I did marching band.  Which I was clearly too preoccupied with to develop any sense of style at such a crucial style-forming time in my life. 

-I mean, a shress?  Really?

-These listing has become redundant and unnecessary.  And so has this post.


  1. hahaha a shress! perfect.

    totally been there.

  2. hahaha i can't even handle this! you are a crack up lady! and i totally have a shress! and it will be called a shress from now until the end of time.

  3. Long live my shress as well! Thrilled it finally has a name. I've rocked a decent few in my day. I always feel like I need to go all Mama Bear on the poor girls wearing it as a dress. "Here darling, take these leggings, save your underbutt for another time."

    1. hahaha exactly! It's so sad. I just wonder...what they were thinking.

  4. Haha this is great. I honestly don't get fashion nowadays. Sometimes they make shirts way too big, and dresses way too small. And then there's tunics. It's exhausting.

    1. Completely exhausting. All you can think at stores is, "okay but where are the clothes I can actually WEAR?"

  5. jealous of those ballet feet of yours. i did pointe for a year and it was death to my flat feet.

    1. I'm sorry to hear that, I can only imagine! I don't know how pointe is possible!

  6. hahaha i loved the diet dew thoughts. also, most dresses look like tops on me since im so tall -__- i feel your pain
