I managed to spill coffee in my purse today (don't even ask; it's a talent).  My filofax and wallet were mostly spared.  My phone is currently recuperating in a jar of rice (once I pried the battery cover off, seriously, HTC, did you guys even TRY any human factors testing on that thing?).  My entire apartment smells like coffee, but like stale, old coffee, not nice rich coffee. 

On the upside, I did, at least, manage to wash my car and I got this dress in the mail from Nordstrom.  Strangely, the Nordstrom Calvin Klein ready-to-wear is far nicer than the Macy's Calvin Klein ready-to-wear even though the price point is the same.  The jersey is heavier and the length to size ratio is more flattering.  More evidence that Nordstrom is, in all ways, some kind of weirdly superior dimension?

That dress is lovely. Although I find myself wondering how crisp the white "origami" part will stay after a night (or day) out and I'm torn.

And you spilled coffee and managed to salvage everything, but how is your purse? I hope there wasn't absorbent fabric lining the inside. The only thing worse than stale old coffee in your apartment is stale old coffee in the purse you're toting around all day. :(

I worried about that! But it's jersey, so it's fairly wrinkle-resistant. I am a bit worried about it getting stained with make-up or lotion, though...

The inside is fabric, alas. I'm going to have to take it to a leather-cleaning place, and I fear the lining will have to be replaced. Fortunately it wasn't super-expensive, but I am still bummed.
