Apropos of nothing, except that I finally caved and bought myself a Black Dog tshirt, joining the echelons of New Englanders who sport them like a Members Only badge of status, some pictures of my recent trip. This year, I brought a digital, so I actually have photos. Last year I had to buy a horrible disposable Kodak.
Perhaps some comments in the upcoming days on the fashion trends of Martha's Vineyard during their busy holiday weekend. Let me preface by saying: Polo, polo, polo! And, of course, white.
Another photo. They're worth a thousand words, don't-cha-know?
...and another. Three thousand! (Ha-ah-ah...)
As you can see by the photos, it was a little too grey outside to get to sport that teal bikini I was recently bragging about. But I did get to wear it in the hot tub, at night. But the D&G sunglasses came to much use and got many compliments! Which, one night at a bar, prompted my comment to a guy in a D&G belt that they'd make adorable accessory babies.
I managed not to spend a lot of money. Other than the tshirt, I bought myself a little statuette of a boy holding a heart, some cheapie trinkets from Sheila Allen's (now an "everything under TEN DOLLARS!" store, while last year I definitely bought a nice bracelet from there, alas - as I remarked to my mother, it's now probably the only chain on MV where you can buy many things for less than $10 unless you're just stopping for lunch). I also bought little items for my family - and a copy of the Sweeney Todd libretto/book for only 25 cents at a second-hand store!
PS, the Black Dog shirt I bought was accidentally a kid's "medium" instead of an adult medium... whoops. It fits, but is tight. Take a look at this helpful sizing chart if you want a good laugh at my expense.
