But with my newly-hung mirror (thanks, Paul!), it was easy to snap some photos this morning, and I thought it was worth paying tribute to a favourite no-brainer outfit. I know Sue at Une Femme's being enjoying this same combo recently of dress and boots -- it's an old staple of mine, and I was so happy to be able to grab something with a bit of gusto on a morning when I had none of my own.
included a photo of me wearing this dress as part of her great series on "Dresses With Sleeves" -- I'll admit that I wear this at least once a month, changing up the cardigan (generally either this black one or a purple one), so over the three years I've owned it, it's racked up the hours and lowered its CPW considerably.
It's silk jersey so it feels great on, and getting dressed is as easy as pulling on dress (Catherine Malandrino), black tights, and zipping up my Fluevog boots.
Oh, and with a pattern this wild, who needs jewelry, right? But I think my Wendy B fleur-de-lis necklace is just perfect with it, dainty/discreet enough not to interfere with the print, strong enough in its delicacy to hold its own. The artsy quality of this shot (hey, be kind, would you?) is due to my not wanting to use the flash (which would give a blinding reflection in the mirror) but not having a tripod or a super steady hand. So we're going with artsy, and maybe I'll do a better job of showing you some other day. . . .
