Today, with a borrowed nametag, I impersonated John at the craft mothership I call work.
As John, I visited two of the phone rooms on the main floor (the oversized plushie office phone room, and the evil villain phone room), stuck the nametag on the weird Etsy mascot, Mr. Grit, and then left work a little early (because I’m not feeling well after what I ate today), stopping for a photo op at the Manhattan Bridge overpass, for which the neighbourhood, DUMBO, is named.

Ask not why a dude is looking at dresses. Ask why more aren’t.
A maxi dress for summer with white chiffon with stripes and leather trimming? The style might not be for everyone, but I don’t mind suggesting it to those for whom it would work!
You need only really need three accessories with this dress, and one of them is your hair.
The last couple days, I’ve been looking at Peter Pan collars. Perhaps some of you will know what TV episode I watched on Saturday….
What I’m wondering is, can you have a Peter Pan collar with a deep keyhole in the back of the dress without it looking too odd? Because a high collar is cute, but skin is nice, too. Which is why I gravitate to the high collar with a short skirt.
I’m on a rustic kick today. Lose the hat and pearls and think of the following….
Imagine a woman with hair down to the tops of her shoulder blades, pushed back and around her ears. She’s got her eyes wide open and an uncomplicated smile, barely visible earrings, a short chain necklace with a diminutive pendant. She’s carrying a thin white sweater in case it gets cold.
Then, she comes up to you and offers to buy you a drink. Who cares if she’s interested in you? Say yes. Order something out of your comfort zone. Sputter when you find it tastes bad. Get the laugh you see waiting behind her lips.
When I can’t focus on code, I can window shop at work.

Note that these aren’t endorsements of any kind, just things I like while browsing.
When I push new code, I test the site to make sure I fixed whatever it is I was working on and that I didn’t break anything.
Things catch my eye. There’s a lot of great things here.
So, now that it has been pointed out to me, no, I still think favouriting cute vintage dresses on Etsy (these from TheyRoaredVintage) is a valuable use of my time.
