So it was a spring party, just a week after the air was warm and the temps reached 80*. I knew what I would wear. My trusty pleated metallic skirt (older, H&M), my new ASOS heels with jewels galore, and a lined, lace blouse by Josephine Sasso. The tricky part was the outerwear. I had a simple satin overcoat in mind, but the weather weighed in. It said: NO WAY!
I chose instead a plum colored jacket by Tahari with multiples layers of ruffles at the neck mimicking the scalloped folds of a rose. The extra fabric kept me warm and allowed me to wear my sandals without socks (which would have been cute) or tights. I refused to wear anything fur or furry, nothing so wedded to winter. I added a single bracelet -such restraint- and a simple crystal bag, and one ring. My hair was in a simple knot, but I tied a scarf around it to keep it from blowing into a mess.
A cautious step!
It was a lovely night. Fortunately, I did not have to walk or stand much on these heels. Now I am a bit under the weather from this mercurial, bipolar weather. So while in bed, and a bit feverish, I made this using double exposure.
It is still cold here, and a perfect day for a pajama day. If you could see me tonight you would say: Blogger: you’re fired! I hope it is warmer near you and that your week starts off with a calm and warm day. Mondays, hah!
