|Dress the Population Michelle Sequin Gown // Size XS // Matte Black|
▪ I almost added a new trophy piece to my closet recently, but the poor fit (obvious bunching in the back and too-long length) and lack of occasion for it complicated my decision. If you are on the taller end of average height (or taller), you must try the Dress the Population Michelle Sequin Gown (available in three colors). It fits about a size small, but has stretch so your normal size might also work. It’s sold at Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, Lord + Taylor, and Amazon.

▪ I am currently enraptured by the idea of homemade fruit leathers, and have been puréeing and dehydrating up a storm whenever I can. It’s one of those activities that doesn’t require many ingredients (you really just need fruit and/or sweeteners) or any talent, so it’s naturally suited for someone of my (limited) skill set and attention span. You should give this a whirl if you need a background activity this weekend.
