Coordinating my dress with the Disney Family Museum restroom.
The shirt says “Love Rocks.”
My bracelet is saying but it’s also a gamble, and my earrings are saying but sometimes it’s a prison.

I’m feeling pink-panthery, even though I’m mostly in black.
I love this suit. I got it about 9 yrs ago, when I was about 3 mos. pregnant, so I was just crossing my fingers that it would eventually fit.

Diamonds & Pearls.
(Did you know I love Prince?) I absolutely love the pattern on the skirt of this dress, but the top is like a vinyl bustier thing. But I was just sitting in my closet mesmerized by the print. So then I added this sweater because it hit the waistline in the right place. And then I thought of my taupe scarf with the pearl pattern, and even though I felt a little kooky, I went with it.

A sweater dress plus a cardigan makes me feel sweatery. It’s kind of cold here, and now that Murder, She Wrote is back on Netflix streaming, I just want to curl up in my sweaters and watch all 300 episodes.

I love the cut of this dress—it’s long-waisted enough for me, and it’s got this angled hem with a side slit, so it’s all kind of sharp. And the attached belt follows the angle. Cool.
Also, the boots. I’ll get close-ups next time, but they’re like a wingtip-Western-mod combo.

I got this outfit about four years ago, when I was still reading print fashion magazines, and shoulder pads were having a moment. I was charmed and went thrift store shopping and got these two pieces. I love how the cream buttons on the black jacket work with the skirt.
P.S. Sad story: I had some earrings on and lost one on the way to work. They’re those earrings I wear all the time that I’ve had since 1993 and look like crystal balls. Sigh.
