    Hi takinanap – welcome! You sound like an exceptionally fun person – and I notice you share my sock monkey obsession, too!

    If you like the Hamster Dress, check out Psycho Girlfriend’s Spork Skirt“Over 750 plastic sporks on monofilament attached to a hoop skirt with accompanying mouse head hat.” – for a casual summer outdoor wedding, maybe?!

    believe it or not, i could really wear something like this. why not? no one else would be wearing it. might be a little uncomfortable for sitting in church or a restaurant. and the boots…definitely a good match with the rest of the outfit.
