I’m running through the prompts of the #31days31waysremix a second time – I’m not done coming up with new outfits yet!
Day 7 Prompt: Define Your Waist
This is actually one of the bigger outfit tricks that I took away from the challenge the first time (even though I didn’t mention it on my 10 lessons that I learned – I thought of it after the fact!). It’s a detail that I didn’t pay conscious attention to in the past, and it’s been interesting to make adjustments to old stand-by outfits with this in mind. Here’s today’s deal:
So, I’ve had this dress since I was SEVENTEEN years old! Yikes! I usually make fun of my husband for having clothes that old, but apparently I am not immune myself. It’s a gold slip dress layered under a layer of black chiffon, and I looove it. It has a tie in the back, which allows me to – you guessed it! – define my waist, and I love that it’s sleeveless because I run warm. It was actually a great outfit for today, because it was sunny and warm and gorgeous one minute and then chillier the next, so layers were my friend (as were sunglasses). I got a ton of compliments on the dress at our homeschool co-op, so I guess I’m not the only one who likes it – yay! 🙂
I’m not sure what’s going on with my expression in the last photo, but I thought it was kind of hilariously full of attitude, so I decided to include it. 😉
Also: stripes and polka-dots – flexing my pattern mixing muscles, again!
