Tonight is my first WW meeting of the New Year - the last two were pre-empted by Christmas and New Year's Eve. I've missed my group - I can't wait to see them again.here just before Christmas for $25.00. As I mentioned when I bought it, it's likely from the early 60s - the quality is lovely and every detail is just perfect. I did remove the little matching flower (but saved it) that was at the bottom of the V-neck.

I spent a lot of time looking for a sweater skirt that was just right. This one flares slightly at the hem, preventing the dreaded light bulb.
here as one of the pieces of a 10-item wardrobe challenge.
As mentioned, I wore them for the 3rd Wardrobe Challenge (all outfits at that link - that's one of my better wardrobe challenges, I think), as well as in April 2010 (with my silver velvet skirt), July 2010 (with my little grey dress that I just gave away last month), December 2010 (2nd outfit, with jeans and a top I no longer have), April 2011 (2nd outfit, with a cool dress I haven't worn for a long time), and June 2011 (with a bunch of neutrals).
The stuff on a shelf:
Blouse (vintage, thrifted), skirt (Belamie), shoes (Aerosoles), belt (Landes, thrifted), mink brooch (consignment), ring (Wendy Brandes), earrings (don't remember), cuff (St. Paul's Cathedral gift shop).
