Today:
  • New black/blue/white silk halter dress
  • SS black silk scoop neck sweater [several years old--5 or so]
  • Sheerish black tights [from the batch I bought last fall]
  • black suede/grosgrain peep-toe booties [pre-fall last year]
  • Bright coral lipstick
  • White baroque pearl drop earrings
The first dress I've bought in forever--I quite like it, perhaps I'll have to do this more often. So comfortable

I went by Home Depot on my way home & got some looks--I was the only person there wearing stilettos for some reason

Sounds lovely Ta-ta!

Thanks to this thread I'm realizing that my wardrobe is inefficient not because I don't have enough nice clothes, but because I have too many items that lack permutations. I end up wearing the most versatile items repeatedly and bore myself to death...in fact my boyfriend has built a better French wardrobe than I...

^ Thank you I really enjoyed what I wore today, it's good to branch out & do something a bit different every now & then

I'll be able to wear the same-ish thing for transition in the fall, but with a long-sleeve silk sweater (that I don't own yet, but have been meaning to buy) & thicker tights. Actually I used to have a sweater like that, and it bit the dust ...

How about a challenge for you & everyone else feeling bored ... a bit like Iron Chef Take what you have in your closet & post two new combinations you've never tried before that you really like ...

I really want to make my wardrobe more coherent with my style and therefore smaller.

Looks great, Ida ... I love the new piece. And B, I love that sheer purple/black top--can't wait to see what you do with that ...

We have been having a cold snap, which has been thwarting all my plans to play with spring clothes

New combination today ... I liked it. It would work for a serious meeting (or even an interview I think) with different hose and shoes.
  • navy crewneck
  • navy cardigan (pictured above)
  • grey linen skirt (pictured above)
  • grey floral tights
  • red patent Mary Janes (pictured above)
  • straw bag (pictured above)
It will never be worn quite like this again, as I found a hole in the tights when I took them off, and they are now history

PS The temperature when I left home after 10:00 was in the 40s. By the time I finished my meetings and left after 2:00, it was 80 degrees. So the 3/4 sleeves were a bit chilly in the beginning, but fine by the end ...
