^ I think Jill's dress above is not bad, better than lots of what we see But I feel it could do without the paillettes.

At least he'd have an excuse...? I have a hard time relating to anything Lillly for men beyond a tie. Wild prints on men? If they're on a tropical vacation, or going to see Jimmy Buffet. Otherwise, YIKES.

(To hijack further, you're AKA, right? And isn't blkladylaw? Congrats on your organization's 100th anniversary.)

I do have a thing for Lilly, and have my eye on this eBay item, tho that drawstring waist gives me pause. With my hips & rump, I'm really not sure. At least I have 4 days to decide.

Which image?

The Jill Scott image came from Yahoo! News.
The Gubelmann came from New York Social Diary.

Yes, I and Soror BlkLadyLaw are both AKAs, and thanks for the congratulations.
I like the top but the waist makes me a bit nervous, too. If it were a pure tunic, I think it would be better.

Thanks! Happy Anniversary Classic1908 and any other Sorors out there! I was at the plot at midnight (in the freezing cold) on Howard's campus (where it was founded) at midnight and we counted down like it was New Years Eve lol. Despite the cold Sorors were out there fiercely dressed to the nines in high heel and dresses!

Soror, I wished I could have been there but I had to prioritize and July takes precedence.
And I would expect nothing less than our Sorors dressed fiercely to the nines.

All of the deleted images of tunic tops were sourced from Nordstrom.com - just click over there to the Encore department and you'll see a ton of them. Mind you, there are some absolute horrors in there too.

It was more so you could see the variety of necklines that *might* be available to you.

M.G. and them at a Chanel event.

Because I'm a fiend for sheath dresses, I posted it. The winter white's pretty but her corsetry is slightly off.

Thanks for the link and the advice given Inspireded I tried on some dresses with different necklins than I've tried before and ended up buying a dress I would never have thought suited me. It's great to have more options that just the same old boring v-neck

^ Glad to help out!

^^Classic, I think it's a case of her posture needing correction, not her undergarments.

Bigger pic of Marjorie's outfit at Chanel.
I would have worn it differently but I love the beautiful neckline.

She seriously can never get it completely right.The fit is off, she couldn't afford anything better or some some sort of alteration?
