Sartorially ready for graduation

Quite honestly, schoolwork was very minimal today. I watched Othello in English class, finished up some work in yearbook, went to a Japanese curry house for lunch with friends, rushed to graphic arts class and found out it was canceled, and watched a pet lizard eat crickets in psychology class.

Luckily, I was somewhat productive -- I reviewed for my AP English Literature & Composition exam and I bought my graduation dress. A graduation dress, to be worn under the black robe until the onslaught of photo opportunities after the ceremony, needs to be both light and dressy. Because my graduation ceremony is at a mountain winery, the sun will have no mercy on us. At the same time, the family luncheon afterward dictates something grandparent-appropriate (no ripped leggings and excessive cleavage!). And of course, a girl wants to welcome the new era of her life after graduation in a smart outfit.
So, while browsing Gilt Groupe today, I found this Marc by Marc Jacobs dress -- and bought it for only $80 ($257.00 on Bluefly), when I once saw it in Nordstrom for over $400.

I don't know if I'm emotionally and mentally ready for high school graduation just yet, but I'm about there sartorially.
