Billion Dollar Dress

   Well named, StopStaring!, I do feel like a billion dollars in this dress.  It is such a perfect fit, and this sleek material give a flattering silhouette.  When I ordered my Navy blue Railene dress, I got it in a size small because that's all that was available on Poshmark.  Since it's a pencil wiggle dress I guessed that my hips would need a little more room and I was right, the size small is perfect for me in that style.  But with this dress, I ordered my usual XS and it is a perfect, and I mean a truly perfect fit.  I cannot wait to wear this dress everywhere!
    For a while now, I've been working on doing a double victory roll hairstyle, but I am really awful at hair.  I mean really awful.  It's mainly the symmetry that throws me.  I can usually get one side of my hair to look perfect and the other is anywhere from slightly mismatched to a total mess.  Today I was determined to get two rolls and I think I did a pretty good job.  It's not perfect and I did try to make it look deliberately asymmetrical, but I'm happy with the outcome.  For the sides and back, I wrapped a piece of felt around a thin headband to create a full roll.  Then I put the headband on, covered it up with the victory rolls, and rolled the remaining hair around the band and the felt.  I have videos of it all and one day I'm going to sit down and go through the boring process of learning to use video editing software so I can post them here.
