Oops! Not sure what happened there. October is hard, I wait all year for it and then it's gone, taking all the leaves with it. I've got all manner of excuses for not posting so much (okay, at all) mostly centered around the weather (it's rained so often I'm a little weirded out by the presence of the sun today), but mostly a general discomfort with how to dress. I've been relying on a few outfits that happened early in the fall and rotating them rather than coming up with something new.
Either way, now that it's November I'm determined to get myself more into a routine, and in recent days I've been feeling a little bit more like wearing something besides that same chambray dress over and over.
In particular I have this one slip that's bordering on a dress that I've been thinking about a lot. It's probably the season, but I don't want to be terribly typical about wearing it (so this isn't a post where the slip in question is featured anyway). It was something I tried on at one of my favorite vintage shops here, but left behind because I already had a pile of treasures to take home. When it was still hanging there a few weeks later, I knew there was no possible way for it not to come home with me.
After that, I keep seeing black lace everywhere. I like it in a less witchy way, even though my eye really wants to stick it with some plummy lipstick and go for it, so I'm thinking maybe it'll go nicely with shiny things, cropped fur jackets, or something with a ladylike collar.
Eventually the dress will make it out into the world, but for now I'm just going to hang it around on my walls and stare at it until I figure out when and how to wear it!
