After yesterday's outfit debacle (I know, I'm being dramatic), I went with a simple and easy outfit to get my style groove back.
- Dress - Derek Lam for DesigNation, thrifted; purchased here for $24.95
- Shoes - Half Truth Tanya, Fluevog; last seen here in June with my fireworks dress
- Jacket (below) - Club Monaco, thrifted; last worn here last week
I'm so glad I went back for this dress! I absolutely love it. I got lots of compliments on it, and it was comfortable to wear. This is a size 10 (I'm usually a 6 or 8) and I was glad for the slight extra room, as the cotton/linen blend has zero stretch.
here, linked 'cause I love), and Patti wondered if hers had been shortened. Upon examination of the patterns, I'm certain that it has not.
I wore a black half-slip under it for extra protection.
It's such a great pattern - I can think of lots of options to wear this from my wardrobe, various shoes, tights and jackets.
I realized after I'd put my walking shoes on, that I'd forgotten to take a pic with my jacket.

We've had temps in the upper 20s, which is very hot for us. White linen is wonderful sunblock!
- Steel cuff - thrifted
- Glass bangle - thrifted
- Shield ring - Nine West
- Earrings - thrifted, Powell River, first wearing
I do my stair pose last when I take my pictures in the morning. Vizzini often dashes for the door and tries to escape when I exit our condo. Today I let him in the hall briefly.
