What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Etsomnia™ 296: What the Frock?


Etsom·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.

Since I am starting a new career in real estate, I though my work wardrobe could use a little updating. I already have more pairs of black pants than any one 2-legged person should ever possess, and my closet is full of good jackets and tops, so I concluded a work dress or two were in order. But some Etsy sellers have a weird idea of what constitutes a “career dress”

It’s not bad on her, but I would just look like I’d tucked my dress into my underwear. Again.

Very professional without being boring! By heartmycloset
No, thanks. I’m a weird enough shape already.
Well, it does have houses on it…

It is not clear to me whether she’s holding it out to show it to us or to get it as far away from her as possible.
Beautiful, plus it would make me very easy to pick out of a crowd! By heartmycloset
I don’t think I’d get many home buyers in this disaster by Givenchy, but if it’s clown cars you’re selling, this would be perfect!

  1. A couple of them are real interesting. But for others, I wonder if the age of the designer is less than two digits. The only reason this got a five star was the rose dress. — Hal

  2. Good is good and bad is bad. Thankfully I can now see.

  3. Oh, wow! Some of these are seriously hideous, but you cleverly inserted a couple of nice one in the stream of nonsense 🙂

  4. The red dress is stellar. And I’m fairly sure that I wore something to dress #1 (not your splash page dress but the one that looks like a dress conceived during an acid test) in my teen years!
