This was quite an adventure. Like all adventures, it had some exciting parts and some frustrating parts, but all in all, it was just plain fun. I have every intention of making this dress again, because I really like it, and next time I'll be able to do it better and faster. The pattern was good, the instructions terrible. I'll write a review in the next couple of days.
I am wicked happy with my Little Black Dress, even though it's not as perfect as I'd like it to be. It's the most flattering neckline I've ever worn, I think, though it's not very practical for cooking dinner or vacuuming or any of the other mundane chores that fill up my days. But I need a few non-practical pieces in my wardrobe. That way I can claim that I have to go out so that those fab outfits aren't wasted.
I'm a day late and a dollar short as far as the contest goes, but I like the idea of doing photos to show The LBD with different possibilities. So here goes:
Here it is with black tights and beaded necklace (different one in either picture). These shoes are plain black leather with patent leather toe caps and
heels. They're very cute. It's a bummer the shoes are just not coming
out very well.
Darn it, where are my feet?
Now since the holiday season is a-coming, I had to do a holiday outfit, too. Complete with holiday drink and ruby slippers. Because there's no place like home, you know.
Hair up? Hair down? Depends on my mood. And which way it looks better that day :o)
I really wanted to find some fun places around town to take these
pictures, but my photographer is busy. And it's kind of damp because
there's a half inch of snow on the ground. And it's 30F degrees. It's
also nighttime, which could work, but is trickier. So I had to settle
for these definitely less-than-ideal shots.
I'm going to make my pictures more interesting in the future. Honest.
