Truth be told, the dress is two sizes too small for me so getting it on was a trip. Like squeezing two pounds of sausage into a one pound casing... I managed, with a pair of scissors nearby in case I got stuck. Actually, I did get stuck twice and, staying calm and wiggling, was able to avoid reaching for the scissors, my last resort.
Other news... I just learned that I've been using the wrong tools to put on makeup. In fact, they weren't tools at all. So I went and bought real brushes at Sephora and -- boy! -- how much easier it is. Plus, I've concluded I need false eyelashes all the time, not just on special occasions. They make a critical difference in my appearance. Time-consuming and awkward, yes, but necessary.
