Probably every blogger who has ever attempted to take outfit photos has had a day where they absolutely loved their outfit...but they looked outside at the windy, rainy, sucky weather and said, "Nope, there's no way I'm taking pictures out there."
So this outfit almost went undocumented. Except it just so happened that Angel really, really loved this outfit, and after he'd said, "It's too bad you don't want to take outfit photos..." one too many times I said, "Fine! We'll take them on the porch!"
So we did. Because this outfit is made up of a whole bunch of pieces that are special to me, I'm glad it did get photographed.
Dress: Angel bought this Shabby Apple dress off of eBay for me without even asking if I liked it first. It was a total surprise, but it fit perfectly, it's precisely my idea of the classic LBD, and I've worn it countless times, primarily when I was in beauty school and had to wear solid black clothing. This is probably the best SURPRISE gift Angel's ever given me.
Sash: I made it recently because I decided I needed more sashes to tie into large bows. Who doesn't?
Shoes: A Kohl's purchase from a couple years ago. I was magnetically attracted to them. I've never seen any pumps I loved more than these. They are often called "Dorothy Shoes" and I wear them with pride.
Tights: I have absolutely no idea. I suspect that I never actually buy tights, they are simply drawn to my closet because they know they will be loved.
Pendant: made by ME! In my aunt's glass studio. Remember when I made the mosaic rainbow? She mailed me the two pieces I made after they were finished in the kiln, and this pendant was perfect for an outfit involving accents of primary colors.
