Boatneck dress

Boatneck dress

After my recent adventures in learning to sew, I wore my new black boatneck dress to work.  (May I add that the dress cost me $3.33 in fabric.)  No one noticed my dress, which may be a good thing (I wear a lot of black dresses to work) or may have been a bad thing (no one wanted to mention my poorly hemmed skirt).  In any case, I was very happy with how it was styled with a leopard print belt and black and gold earrings.

I got my belt at Ann Taylor, but I like this Jimmy Choo one.  One the less expensive end, these from Target and the Limited are nice.

I’m very picky about leopard print for scarves.  I love mine (H&M earlier this fall), and the one pictured above is pretty fantastic.  This white and black print from Michael Kors is nice (although I would wear a different belt).

The best part was that the dress fit, something that doesn’t happen unless I drop $65 at the tailor or order a Numari dress.  Life has been busy, but I hope to start sewing again soon.

Winter tweed

This is a cozy outfit to wear to work on a cold day.  The Lo & Sons bag is my absolute favorite – I’ve had it for over a year now, used it heavily, and it still looks brand new.  It’s also great for travel.

La soirée d’hiver

The leather panel skirt I have is from Caché, and the woman I bought it from has a husband who rides a motorcycle.
