That bamboo "understated" black dress was the one that I wore to many events...
from my retirement celebration...to the theatre, dinners out, Christmas, a staff party, a funeral, bridge luncheons, date nights....
I knew that I needed to find a replacement dress
but I had no idea that I would find one so quickly.
The dress I found is patterned and has body and weight so it hangs well.
I plan to wear black or grey tights with it and depending on the event either my new Chelsea Boots or black shoes.
For a dressier look I can opt for sheer charcoal hose and black kitten heels
and add a vintage brooch for some pizazz.
Hard to capture this well as the fitting room is so tiny.
(I also am wearing my NYDJ boyfriend jeans underneath!)
You can see the jeans underneath
but I was in a hurry
as I was meeting up with my DIL and the grandchildren for a lunch date!
pockets come in handy
Made by Masai and purchased at a consignment shop in Oak Bay.
Not everything I own has to be new.
New Clark's Chelsea Boots
I'll be wearing these most days every week for the forseeable future.
It has been a wee bit of a shopping frenzy lately...
not my usual habit but I have been fortunate to find some of the things that I need to replace the tired and worn out pieces that I have purged from my closet.
I've been very lucky at the thrift shops too...
several new key pieces have been found at bargain basement prices.
I'll post more on these soon.
Have you found anything on your list for Fall and Winter?
