I was toodling around all day Monday in a T-Shirt and jeans, thrifting for materials for my Insane Chandelier Project (you didn't think I forgot, did you??), when out of nowhere BF decided he wanted to use up $200 worth of gift certificates at Morton's Steakhouse for dinner.
Heck yeah! This calls for a skirt!
Thankfully, the skirt is a bit big, so my belly had some room to expand as I filled it with steak, onion bread, and cheesecake. I also adore the shirt I'm wearing here; I love the beautiful, bright color and the nice, subtle embroidery on the front. It's silky smooth and perfect for a date night when you want to encourage lots of casual body touching and stroking. I'm not sure how I feel about the belt. The pattern may be a bit too-close-and-yet-too-far next to the tweed, but since I'm still living out of a suitcase in D.C., this was the best I had. I thought my chocolate looping lanes belt would be too dark.
Shirt: Banana Republic
Skirt: Avant-Tweed Skirt (Anthro, $60 here)
Necklace: Secret Key Necklace (Anthro)
Belt: Nimble Paisley Belt (Anthro)
Earrings: Factory Cluster Earrings (J.Crew, $20 here)
Tights: Cockle Shells Tights (Anthro) (these tights already have a hole in them at the knee after only one previous wear! WHY?? ::cries::)
Shoes: Slinking Frills Heels (Anthro)
Incidentally, I think my feet may have shrunk a half size in this cold weather? I could swear that these slinking frills heels (in a half size lower than my normal size) fit me wonderfully for Christmas dinner, but they are positively falling off my feet now, even with heel grips. Likewise, I had to go down a FULL size to wear the Waving Grain pumps. I'm hoping the problem is a combo of the cold weather's shrinking properties and tights. I love these shoes too much to give them up! Has anyone else had a similar problem with their feet?
