It kind of worked! I just recently started a new job singing at a church, and all the ladies sitting around me wanted to know why I was dressed up so fancy. Did I have something earlier in the day? Was it my birthday? I had to tell them no, I was just dressed in my normal clothes! In fact, the dress is one that I’ve rescued from Goodwill. It photographs beautifully, but the buttons are broken and there are a few small holes I need to mend, so I wore it with my standard lace jacket to disguise these imperfections.
Hello, lovely readers! On Wednesday (uh, I’m a few days behind, sorry…) I dusted myself off and tried to look presentable in the evening after a long afternoon of sitting on my butt in front of a computer.
Blue striped 50s cotton dress: Goodwill
Black lace jacket: Forever21
Hair flowers: Made by me
Black leather belt: from my Grandma’s collection
Seashell bangles: The Shell Shop in Morro Bay
Black patent pumps with bows: Payless, years ago

Today was a concert day (yay!) so I’ll have another fancy dress for you tomorrow. At the moment, it’s time to eat a big green salad and get some well-deserved rest.
