I called Erin when I got in this morning and told her that every time I wear this I remember how she tried on the ecru version and deemed it “Too Little House on the Praire”*. And then I got the black. And she says she doesn’t think that about the black, but I still hear her say it every time I wear it, and it makes me giggle**.
That said, I love this dress. I feel thin and curvy and fabulous in it. SO fabulous I broke out the “high fashion pose”***
One of my very favorite combos is the all black outfit, brown shoes and bag. I think it really makes the accessories pop.
This jacket is a vintage wonder. In perfect condition, and all of $12 at a thrift store. AND it has remained flattering after my weight loss. Which I am glad for as it would be reallllllllyyyy expensive to tailor, I’m afraid.****
Dress, Jovovich Hawke for Target
Necklace and earrings self made
*Kasmira has the ecru and it looks fabulous on her and NOT Too Little House on the Prairie at all.
**Bernadette and Erin and I had all gone to Target on our lunch break to scope out the Jovovich Hawke collection. And Erin tried on a swimsuit. With tights. And walked out to use the 3 way mirror, and then I laughed about it ALL day, and she went home, did a flashy jazz pose in the tights and swimsuit and sent a picture of it to my phone…and THIS memory is probably what I am ACTUALLY laughing at.
***This pose makes me think of my sister in law Michelle, who has a Bridal portrait in this pose. And looks fabulous enough to make a girl jealous doing it.
****Oh, nothing. I just really wanted another footnote. :D
