I've had this purple velvet blazer for nearly a year, but I almost never wear it. It's an angled double-breasted style, so it can't be worn unbuttoned. I do love the rich deep purple (which doesn't show up in this picture very well at all. Grr. This is what I get for having a cheap camera...but it's better than no camera. Take my word for it - this is rich purple!
That's my new skirt that I got last weekend. It's that nice faux suede; washable, light and comfortable. I used to have a long-ish skirt in this colour but gave it to Elaine...and wouldn't you know, she was wearing it today! With a purple patterned top! Too funny.
The scarf is one of my treasures. I liberated it from...my dad, back in about 1985-86. I used to wear it in my hair or tied at my neck (either draped or doubled around again so it made sort of a collar). Dad was in a dance band back in the 60s and they all wore matching outfits (hee), and this was part of his "uniform".
It's so soft and pretty. I love all the colours in it - it goes with anything. My dad died over 11 years ago, and I always feel close to him when I wear something of his. *smile*
Forgive the hair - I forgot my mousse today, ha!
