So Trillian and I went out to Ye Local Thrift Store where she found a black velvet dress for $19. It fit perfectly. How could we not buy it? I got some sweaters. Trill made some minor modifications to the dress to get rid of some thoughtlessly placed white doilies that were hanging like bibs around the neckline. We were so posh after we got dressed up that we nearly threw ourselves out of the house for not being cool enough to hang out with us.
