Cat Pictures and Pink Dresses

When I bought this pink dress, my children mocked me mercilessly. I thought maybe they just didn't know a good dress when they saw one. Then I wore it in public where I got vague, noncommittal, backhanded compliments like,
"Oh, what an interesting dress!"
"Wow, that dress really has some color in it."
"What a unique style you have."

And then my very favorite was when a lady said, "That dress would be just perfect as a Halloween costume for Professor Umbridge."
I figure I can either take offense, or start shopping for small, framed pictures of cats.
