What not to wear?:
Here we have my "touch of glitter" tank, that I love to wear under a jacket or sweater, with jeans. It is a teeny bit festive, without being over the top tacky. Ian thinks one sparkle is one too many -- whatever. I just love BCBG.
The following number, I'll admit, does look, um, well, interesting, unless it's on a person. But that isn't happening today, so I'll just describe it a bit. It can be quite the sexy look as it's interwoven with lacy mesh bits. So if I feel a bit fearless I won't wear a cami under it (braless, however, not an option, not even in the bedroom because Ian HATES this shirt). I like that it goes past the hips, it's great with jeans or leggings. Call it my homage to Gustav Klimt. I love those Free People designers.
This is one of my comfy dressier tops, perfect for winter holidays. Ian thinks it's a weird pattern. I used to even wear it to the office sometimes, under a jacket, with black pants, it would go easily from office to after work drinks... wha....?! What's that .... oh, sorry, another hotter chick's life. Comrags rule.
What to Wear:
Here we are in the vintage section of my wardrobe. Love my mom. She's where I get the packrat gene from. Back in the day, she was a tiny fashionista in her own right. And she had the wherewithall (one word?) to actually hang on to a lot of her neat outfits, some of them sewn specifically for her, in case she ever had daughters! You should have seen what I would walk around in during high school and university, when I could fit into all those neat jackets and skirts from the 60s. You've never seen such a beautiful collection of *cheongsam* dresses either. They fit me when I was 18, and I wore a couple to my graduation and formals, but never again.
The following dress does actually still fit me. I haven't had the occasion to wear it recently, but I think it would look smashing with black leggings.
This jacket is part of my "Prince, formerly known as weird sign, formerly known as Prince" collection. Velvet with a very subtle print, and shiny silver buttons. A bit cropped, but I love the collar and the whole dress it up or dress it down capability of this one. Whenever I'm in doubt about what to wear to a function, this is a perfect standby, over a cami, glitter top, or turtleneck.
And finally, one of my favourite dresses, and apparently it is also one of my husband's... this Teenflo dress I picked up in the spring. I wore it with a turtle neck, leggings and boots to take the birthday boy out for his big dinner. It's his favourite outfit on me. Glad he noticed.
But it's all about the company. Sweet talker, he is... although he loved the meal at Terra, he said it would have been just as beautiful an evening if we were having burgers. Because it was just the two of us, and it was a very, very special evening. Verklempt.
Happy Weekend guys...
