I’ve been sitting on this high-low pleat dress from BB Dakota for a few weeks now and was super thrilled to finally have a chance to wear it out.
In other news, I'm officially back from my two day sojourn in New Orleans where I was attending the annual American Historical Association conference, seeing a bit of the amazing city, interviewing for a few jobs, and catching up with historian friends from around the US, Canada, and UK. For those who follow me on Twitter and Instagram you will know that I had a mild disaster-induced panic attack when my suitcase did not make it to New Orleans and I had job interviews the next morning. After waiting several hours after the bags were supposed to be delivered to the hotel for them to appear my amazing hotel roomies and I charged out after dinner and bought me all new clothes for my interviews. And then my bag showed up and so I got to spend most of the next day running around like a crazy person from interview to interview, returning purchases in between and going on a series of coffee and lunch/dinner/wine dates with old friends. So the whole was basically a whirlwind and I arrived home after a 13 hour series of flights ready to collapse. But it was an amazing, amazing trip and reminded me how much I miss all my historian friends and emergency shopping supports.
