Let me tell you, the weekend that just passed was a bit of a whirlwind. It was Rue Morgue’s Festival of Fear at the FanExpo which meant there was a tonne of prep work to be done beforehand, we had guests all weekend and now I am just trying to play catch up with laundry and well…life.  You know I had the best intentions of posting photos last month but it just did not happen. I think I debate far too much on what I am going to write for these outfit posts and it occurred to me that I really do not have to write all that much.

So, here I am in one of my favourite eShakti dresses. I love the print with the adorable blue birds on the cherry red fabric. I was wearing this dress pretty frequently at least until I managed to spill oil and possibly an entire beer on it in Jamaica. What can I say, my workmates really know how to party.  I still really love it though with its full skirt, POCKETS, boat neck in the front and V neck in the back. For now it will have to be an outfit reserved for concerts in dark clubs.

    That’s a great dress! What’s it made of? If it’s washable, try rubbing plain dishsoap into the oil stains — leave overnight — wash normally. 90% of the time it works…

    Thanks Monika! You are always so sweet 🙂

    And Thanks for the tip Robyn! The dress is cotton so hopefully the dishsoap trick will work! I tried the baking powder one where you leave it overnight to try and soak up the oil but no luck. Hopefully the dishsoap will work out better 🙂

    I was a huge Hilarious House of Frightenstein fan. Used to watch it on CHCH TV 11 when I was a kid. Nothing like it!
