“the dress” part II: Revenge of Bertin!

well, obviously, it’s nothing as serious as the title brandishes. It’s just silly time…jury duty is over for at least another three years! WHOOO-HOOO! I feel like I just bought three and a half Yugos! ANYHOW….

Marie Antoinette's Court Dress at the Royal Ontario Museum, designed by Rose Bertin

I thought I’d treat you all to some close-ups of the same dress I blogged about less than a week ago. (There they were, lost amongst the hundreds of photos I’ve amassed over the years I’ve been procrastinating a blog.)  Also, a wondrous “following friend” (we’ll call the parisienne T just that ‘cos ‘follower’ sounds so, ick…) hooked me up with a link to this podcast, which I’m pretty confident you’ll also enjoy. I learned new things! Click below for GLORY! (and above for glory too*)

it's not just a love-affair with my own voice
