Ensemble du Jour – 4-30-10

I’m still loving my dress form! I like playing dress-up with it, sort of like Fashion Plates 3-D.

This outfit I wore a few weeks ago but have not had a chance to post. This is a pretty typical “me” outfit. Classic shapes, here a pencil skirt and v-necked knit top, but with interesting detail.

In shadow, above, and below with flash.

The interesting detail about this is the skirt. I love the gorgeous metallic pink and gold rose patterned fabric.

Because of the gold tones in the fabric and the Spring weather, I paired this with gold Manolo Blahnik heels.

The top is from Banana Republic, the skirt was from JCrew on sale and the necklace as a giveaway from Bloomingdales I think. This skirt would be great with a tucked in white button-down too. Maybe I should get one of those.

    Ooh cool, you have a dressform. I thought of getting one for both outfits and starting to learn real clothes sewing, but I think I will wait until after the studio is finished being set up, and that's not until after the rest of the new apartment is.I was then thinking about putting this money into savings for our eventual wedding. Dad has no money. Poor dad. But maybe I should put extra money into the home first.In the meantime I came up with another idea for clothes photos. Beau bought a clothes hanger thing and I can bring that out onto the porch. I hope it works well.
