"Her closet was filled with black dresses"
My last installment in the #StyleMeSmartly challenge. I enjoyed it again this time and I'm hoping another fashion challenge pops up for July.
I've decided a while ago to curtail the purchases of black dresses because this quote fully pertains to me. This is one of my fave black dresses though because I'm crushing on full skirts these days. The back is lovely because it's open except for 2 bows. So cute to look at, but hard to wear. I wore this to work with a tank under and a white cardi over.
I did a re-fashion on my necklace. Re-fashion is blogger talk for alteration, as I have gathered. At time of purchase, this necklace has two of the white cords, so as is, the bottom of this necklace would hit waist-level. Not cute. So I added a jump ring to one side and hook the clasp to that. It's still a little long so I tied a knot in the back that's hidden under my hair. The other white cord will be re-fashioned into a bracelet when I get to it. I bought this necklace awhile back, but paid out of pocket for it. Since I have too many necklaces these days, I returned it and rebought it months later when Coldwater Creek sent me a coupon for $25! Love them!
I got the coupon just because I'm just a regular ole customer too!
