I planned a nice outfit today but when I tried it on, it didn't work. The clothes didn't fit well and they didn't go together. What worked in my mind didn't work on my body. Does that ever happen to you?
So, back to square one. I scratched the idea and started over. I pulled out several never-worn pieces from recent thrift-adventures and tried to make magic. Various combinations didn't work. Then, inspiration struck. A dress that's way too tight up top has a cute sparkly red skirt that appeals to me. So I cut off the top and wore what was left as a skirt. I'm pairing it with a sheer, frilly black top. And, of course, red heels. Every gal should have a pair of red heels.
These sassy pumps stop traffic. I need a license to wear them. They are the most expensive shoes I've ever bought ($99) but they're definitely worth the expense. They make my legs look shapely.
Looking at the pictures now, I realize that sheer is... sheer. I probably should have worn a cami underneath. Live and learn.
The outfit is okay. Not great but okay. Creating it was fun and that's enough justification for spending an evening playing with clothes. Please view the pictures in that light.
