Today was the day that we model our accessories from the accessory swap held by Pam at Over Fifty Feeling Forty.... and I had the pleasure of swapping with the woman herself - The ever fabulous Pam!
This scarf is a silk scarf from Chico's and is basically a big panel and then ends. I played around with it a few different ways and at the last minute I decided to wear it as a little halter jacket. I LOVE how it turned out. I paired it with flats to keep it from looking TOO dressy and then I had the idea to pull out a vintage slip that I have never gotten to wear. To be honest, the skirt felt a bit short, especially for work. So adding the slip and having the lace come out from the bottom was a perfect solution!!! And now I'm getting even more ideas! Slips are so quintessentially feminine. Along with the bra, it's the one article of clothing that really has no male equivalent.
This morning my husband, upon seeing me all gussied up asked, "Where are you going? Why are you getting so dressed up to go to work? You look like your going to a cocktail party." Having given this some thought, I justified to myself, "Well, since I never really go to cocktail parties, why shouldn't I at least be able to dress for one!?" Oh, I've also found that when I wear a shorter skirt (well above the knee), I'm more comfortable in flats. Frankly I just feel a little hoochie in heels and short skirts. And since I'm not comfortable with it, I JUST can't pull it off! At least not in Small Town, NC!
