- Cardigan - Precis Petite, consignment; purchased here for $14.00
- Dress - Comrags, Spring/Summer 2011, thrifted; last seen here in September 2019 with grey neutrals
- Shoes - Truths Makena, Fluevog; last worn here for Winesday in May
I pulled this dress out because it's insanely well-cut, but this cardigan obscures that.
It hangs down lower in the back, which I do like. Hmm, maybe it's a smidge big on me - those shoulders look wide.
With the cardi off, it's much more glamourous.
And it's very SHINY...because, like I said, it's made of metal.
See, 8% metal. It's in the fabric.
It's a cloth/8% aluminum foil hybrid. It lightly keeps its shape if I scrunch it, and it feels very strong. I've had it for a few years, so we'll have a little Flashback shortly.
here in January 2013.

I bought this Comrags dress here in December 2016 for $38.95 at the big Women in Need (WIN) store, referencing the link from their Spring/Summer 2011 collection, but unfortunately they are no longer archiving that collection on their site). It's called the Magdalena dress and this pattern is called "rumpled print."
I wore it right away that weekend to see the Sing-Along Sound of Music, so this is from December 2016.
I have been wearing it twice a year since I bought it - this is from April 2017.
Jazzing it up with magenta earrings and shoes in August 2017.
May 2018's version is with a remade jacket made out of a sweater and a couple of other blazers, which is long gone.
This outfit from September 2018 is the only time I've worn a blouse under it, and I love how it looks. That blouse worked so well for me for years, but I'm over it now...or am I?
Two outfits from 2019 - this one in May.
See? Here it is again, in September, which is the last time I wore it.
So! I've worn the dress 8 times, including today's outfit, so I'm getting my cost-per-wear down slowly - it's at $4.89 now, but I know I can do better...simply by wearing it more!
And now, bonus cat pictures. Vizzini has been basking in the sun.

I'm more taken with his little front paws, which he has in "Sphinx Position."
|"Well, I am a rather handsome specimen."|
He's been shedding like mad - I've been brushing him every couple of days (which he loves).
|"Stop telling all my secrets, Woman."|
I did rub his warm fur.
Have a lovely weekend, my friends! Good vibes to you all.
