I still remember the first time I saw Kara Janx's famous kimono wrap dress on Project Runway (Season 2). I longed for that dress enough to price it online. It was more expensive then than it is now, but either way, far out of a working mom's wardrobe budget.
Still, it was hard to forget.
So when I stumbled upon this Jones New York kinda-kimono wrap dress on a Marshalls clearance rack for THIRTEEN DOLLARS, I yelled, "Bless Patsy!"
No, I didn't, but according to A Glossary of Quaint Southernisms, "Patsy is the patron saint of Southern euphemisms." Well, I never. As in never heard of Patsy before, and I've lived in the South all my life.
I'm participating in Patti's wonderful weekly Visible Monday feature at Not Yet Dead Style. She's rockin' boots and great thrift finds.

The law office where I work is located in a beautiful historic, haunted house. But we have to lock down the rockers on the front porch. Apparently, ghosts don't deter rocker thieves.
