While I never got that chance, my life isn't over. I found this delicious dress at a thrift-store this week (Savers). Thrifting is a blessing for those of us who want to play with clothes but need to stay within a budget. The dress cost less than I usually spend for dinner.
The style of the dress appeals to me, as do the colors. I didn't wear a necklace to avoid interfering with the cute neckline and stripes. I'm not sure how else the dress could be styled, but it rocks by itself. Any ideas on other ways to present it?
The dangling earrings were a recent gift from my friends, Lynne and Megan.
I had some free time, so I spent a little extra effort on my makeup (purple and gold eyeshadow). I'm not proficient at this stuff, but applying it feels easier and gives me deep joy.
