I have never in my life taken anything to be dry cleaned. When I came across this "dry-clean only" skirt in my laundry pile, I thought, "Why start now?" I threw it in the wash, and while the results weren't too disastrous, the length did shrink a bit. Looks like it will only be worn with tights, leggings, or a long slip from now on. Which, when I think about it, kinda bums me out. Lesson learned: don't risk ruining a favorite piece just because you're feeling lazy.

After a careful investigation of all of today's pictures, I believe the broken strand originated at this precise moment:
Only one more day of dressing before the 30x30! I feel the need to wear all of my non-30x30 items at once, just because I won't be able to wear them for an entire month. We'll call it Bag Lady Chic.
