This past week I went shopping for some clothes to wear to my 45th high school reunion. I am not one to run out and buy the latest trends and my style is what my daughter might call " artsy fartsy " when I can afford it. Unique things tend to cost more.
So this is what I picked for the evening gathering :
Top : Silk Blouse by Ann Taylor
Below : Black Silk Capris by Silk Road
Then I found the most beautiful shoes I've ever seen. They were expensive, but.....
Comfortable, AND, have hand tooled flowers on them . Those black spaces are holes where the flowers have been carved out.
To top off the above pieces and in case the evening is chilly, I went "artsy fartsy " on my velvet jacket :
This is all hand sewn. You can't see them but it has some sequins and beads and , did I say, another flower ?
In high school I was always the one with the "hand-me-downs" from my Sister Wilma and I worked all summer to buy a coat and a pair of shoes that had to last until it was warm enough to kick them off.
This time I am arriving in style. I hope I'm not over doing it. Watch everyone show up in jeans.
