Do you remember this dress? If you do, I am impressed for I did not. I can't believe I have only worn this dress one other time. I was trying to figure out what to wear, and came upon this dress in my closet. I seriously own a lot of black matte jersey dresses and it got lost in the shuffle. Expect to see me wearing it more often because it's a fab dress and so comfortable!
The earrings are from 1993. I bought them to wear to my senior prom. Then last minute I changed my mind about the dress and didn't wear the earrings. I wore the earrings once in college with that discarded prom dress – this time to a fraternity formal. I don't know if I have ever worn the earrings since. However they are cute so I held on to them. I always keep accessories that are in good condition – they come in and out of vogue, take little space, and can really come in handy a decade or two later!
As for the coat, longtime readers may remember it. My semi-grandmother gave me this coat in high school, I believe she got it from an estate sale. The coat is almost 100 years old. I don't believe in purchasing fur, but as that this is vintage and has sentimental value to me, I think it's okay. Better to wear and honor the lives of the animals than have it fill a landfill.
Saturday night was my friend A's party. It was a really lovely time and I had a blast. As you can see, Alfie wanted in on the fun. And that thing on the floor behind me is a roll of backdrop paper for my husband's photo shoots. You try to find an out of the way location for a 10′ tube. 🙂
