As you may remember from my last post, Friday evening was a fundraising event for my husband's school that had me searching around for a suitable outfit.
My newest friend Jean answered my call for something gorgeous to wear and I popped past and picked up a gorgeous gold number. Oh how I wish it didn't cling to all my [substantial] curves in all the wrong places! I would have loved to wear that beautiful, beautiful dress. So it was back to the drawing board.
Inspiration seized me and I nipped past the fabric shop and grabbed some stretchy black cotton fabric and whipped myself up a simple black skirt to go with a tunic I knew would work well - thanks to a little prompting from the great Nin herself!
Thanks to my good friend Paula for taking my picture! It was a touch awkward standing in the middle of a room full of people, trying to catch my good side... (Hence the half-closed eyes.) It's fine taking a billion pictures of yourself when it's just you, but when there's a whole bunch of people around, it's a bit more ridiculous!
Skirt: Handmade by me!!
Tights: New World (of all places!)
Necklace & earrings: Nabbed from my sister's wardrobe
