Tonight We're Gonna Party Like It's 1995...

I'm not dead! I'm just busy! I'm in the process of moving to my adorable new place (by "in the process," I mean, "moved approximately three small boxes so far, one of which contained the corkscrew, which was a total Moving Fail.") But! I should be snug as a bug in the new apartment in one week's time, when the blogging will resume wholeheartedly. Or at least semi-heartedly.
In the meantime, I am still writing my weekly fash/pop culture column for The Washington Post Express. Please feel free to join the rabid J.Lo bodysuit supporters over there, should you miss me.
But! For now, I present: My outfit for New Year's Eve 2010. (Er, three weeks late. But who's counting? Except me?) This year, I decided to repurpose my High School Senior Prom Dress, a whole (cough) 14 and a half years since it was first worn. Nope, not kidding. (In fact, Newsweek.com did a story a few months back on '90s fashions returning — spotlighting, yep, my blue sequin prom dress — which prompted me to pull it out one more time for NYE. Pairing it not with silver Payless sandals this time around, but with a tux jacket, black leggings, platform heels and a much better haircut.)
That's it above. And here it is in focus below ...er, in the bathroom of a lovely H Street establishment. Please feel free to ignore the toilet paper dispenser.
