The Double-take Dress
The Art of the Double Take.
There is something totally sincere about the double take.
One second you’re conversing about Paso Finos or eating butterscotch budino and the next your mind and body are doing as they please. The act itself is not complicated although it is extremely rapid. For example…
The vintage sleeveless dress in the floral and diamond print is absorbed through the eyes. Synapses fire. Eyelids flutter. The neck jerks. The mouth, on occasion, becomes stupidly agape. In some instances, butterflies swirl.
The act is the same in men and women, although women are better at concealing the double take, often times disguising it as a sip of wine or a slight discomfort in the trapezius.
The gifted ones can execute the double take with a mere twitch of the eyeballs.
The true gift, however, is causing the phenomena.
