Set against the brick exterior of my sister’s house, I am wearing her dress in autumnal colors of similar shades of brick, warmed by tones of green and amber.
I am also wearing her fabulous textured boots. How prescient these purchases were. She bought both items in 2010, and both styles are so on trend today. Thanks, Twin! Here is a shot of the boots indoors.
The bell sleeve dress is fun and somewhat dramatic. Watch what happens when you hail a cab or point to a destination. Cool! Not so cool when eating though,- there are better ways to be saucy.
But I am inside now and no food products are in the offing.
