I haven’t worn this dress since Easter. It’s been through a lot. I ripped it basically taking it off the first and only time I wore it. And then it sat in my car waiting to be taken to the tailor for repair. And then it got water on it at some point and it mildewed. And finally last week I had it repaired and cleaned an now it’s back in rotation.
I’m not super matchy-matchy. I mean, I can be. I do it sometimes. But it’s not a rule. I don’t need things to match. I sometimes don’t even need them to “go”. I just need them to feel good together.
I choose this plum sweater to wear with it because…why not? There is no purple, plum or lilac in the dress, but I thought it looked nice. And I love this sweater and I don’t wear it often enough.
I also wore leggings, because my office has been freezing, and it’s September now, so it’s totally acceptable behavior.
I wore my huge-pain-in-the-behind-to-make-and-therefore-never-to-be-duplicated-by-me multi chain hoops…
I had a hard time getting a good picture of it, but it’s amazing, and it came to me in a flash while watching Project Runway last Saturday on the DVR. I don’t even really remember why. Someone wearing a lariat necklace maybe? Who knows. All I know is that I have had these beads for YEARS and have never really known what to do with them. And when I made this I was so glad I had hung onto a couple of them.
Look at the carving. They are so cute.
And that’s that!~
