I think someone has been reading someone's blog. Yes, dear readers, as shocking as that might sound to you it's true. Do you remember my Colette Macaron dress made painstakingly with Japanese Echino fabric!

And the name of their dress - "Japonita!" That nails it in my mind.
As I was knocked off (in my own mind) , I feel completely justified knocking off the offender's circle skirt pictured below:
