The Red Dress

Yesterday I woke up with a crazy urge to wear a dress.  That is a first.  Anyway, all the ones I have made are summer dresses, so I started thinking...  "Hey Mommy, do you remember when we got those matching read dresses from Chadwicks like 6 years ago and I didn't like mine so I gave it to you?..."  Well, we found one of them.  It was very big on me and had an unacceptable neckline, so after wearing it once I decided I wouldn't be wearing it out of the house again.  Well, now it is a lot shorter than it was and the sleeves are a little short, but I roll them up anyway (nervous habit I suppose) so that didn't matter.  It was still a bit baggy...so I added the only large belt I have.  Was it a fashion faux pas?  I'm thinking back to everything I've read on Amandabeth Online and trying to decide... Anyhow, my friends liked it. :-)

On another note, that same Amanda Beth is hosting another fashion event!  Head over to her blog to check it out.


  1. Looks great, I like the belt! It also looked fine to me without the belt....

  2. The dress is very sweet and the belt just dresses it up and makes it super cute! :)

  3. Great dress! Very 1950's! I love the color, and the belt looks awesome with it.

  4. Wow, that's very pretty, Joanna! I wish I had a dress like that... I like how you added the belt - it really completes the outfit.

    God bless,

  5. I love that dress with the belt. Wow, that is something I would really appreciate having in my closet. How nice!

  6. Another issue that you must stay on top of is price fluctuations from the bookmaker. The prices for placing bets do not just change with different bookies but even with the same. You cannot take it for granted that the prices that are quoted in print like the Racing Post will be valid at the time of the event. With sports betting things can change very rapidly so be sure that the price will be honored before placing your bet otherwise this can seriously affect the outcome of your arbitrage sports betting.

    The best sports betting odds are in actuality just numbers, they may be an ever changing set of numbers but just numbers nonetheless. There are many different factors involved in the computation of not the least of which is the number of bettors placing bets on one team. If a bookie sees this happening he will give the team that is dentified as the loser more points and take points from the team deemed the winning team.

    The Paroli System, of all the famed sports betting systems, is thought to be opposite that of Martingale. Where the difference lies is on the scheme that with the Paroli System, you start with one wager and then up the wager when you win rather than with a loss. This system lets the profit run and cut short the losses, which makes it appealing due to the fact that you don’t have to have a lot of money to be able to use it effectively.

    The problem is, most people wouldn't know where to begin if they had to devise their own worthwhile Selection System, and those clever enough to be able to do so simply wouldn't have the time to do it (it is an arduous task). In fact, there are only two groups of people who do bother to spend the time and money to do so properly: (i) Bookies and (ii) sports tipsters. However, while you can be 100% sure that all Bookies operate a good Selection System (but they won't share it with you), you can be sure that 99% of so-called expert tipsters don't. The number of tipsters doing a proper job on the Internet can probably be counted on the fingers of just two hands.
