Sometimes it starts with the shoes...sometimes it starts with a pair of earrings. Today it was about the necklace.
I purchased this necklace 4 years ago at my little boutique in Illinois...Catwalk. I spoke about it a few posts again. It had matching earrings, but one of the earrings mysteriously disappeared one day, while I was wearing them. The best part? No one mentioned it. I got home and had one earring dangling from one ear, nothing from the other. Sigh. If you have spinach in your teeth, I will tell you. If you are wearing Ellie Mae Clampett schmatta I would tell you. (I love you Karyn!) If you are missing an earring, I would tell you, then crawl on my hands and knees to help you find it! Anyways...I have not worn this necklace in ages! I honestly think it has been worn twice. I love the way it cascades, rather haphazardly.
I started looking for something in black. I even considered pants, but hell, I had already shaved my legs! You can't waste shaved legs on pants! The black dress I wanted to wear was just not working for me today. More like, the cardigan I wanted to wear with the black dress was dirty, so the shoes that I wanted to wear would not work with another cardigan. The mental wrestling I must go through! Shouldn't I be able to log a calorie or two for that?
I came to this blue dress. The dress will pick up the blue beads, it will work with different shoes, I have a cardigan! Voila! An outfit is born. I got this dress last year on eBay. It is originally from Boston Proper, and I never had purchased from their catalogue, so I thought this would be a great way to try them. This is one of those great traveling fabrics; it is slinky and shiny. I believe Chico's has a line of this fabrics. I love the way it hangs! I love the way it feels! I hate the way I kept having the reel the sistas in all day! If I keep this, if you let me keep this, I will wear a cami with it next time.
The shoes? Let me just say this...5 Naughty Monkeys jumpin' on a bed....Yes, Ben got serenaded again today. I know - hard to see the detail in these photos, but the monkeys wanted to play in the jungle! They have about a 4 inch heel, and I love them. No voting these bad boys out! They have flowers, sequins, and a little touch of the same blue in the dress.
What do ya think, my friends?
A quick word about me - if you read Karyn's comment from yesterday, it is just the honesty I expect! You know me - honesty with a little kindness thrown in!
