Sorry I've been MIA; it has been a very busy few days!
I hope to post a full retrospective of my outfits later this week; it turned out I made multiple changes some days, which on balance turned out to be a good decision, despite the occasional hassle it entailed. But for now, here is my final day's outfit.
Today I had to host a poetry event, and then interview two novelists about their work. One of the books was based on the Demeter/Persephone myth, so I thought a little Grecian draping might be in order. This is the debut of my teal..tunic/dress, which I have chosen to treat as a tunic by layering the portobello skirt underneath it (waving to Shannon, my skirt twin). I'm also wearing my leopard print scarf (waving to Claire, my scarf-twin.) I'm wearing my DV booties (waving to Una, my bootie twin - if you've kept them?) And I'm debuting a big red bag as well. It is not leather, it is not my dream bag, but I needed something with a big capacity and this fit the bill for now until I can find something better.
Re the tunic/dress: IRL it is nowhere near as shiny, so please disregard that as a flash effect (which it is.) Even though I don't think this kind of draped look is ideal for me, I quite enjoyed the tunic shape; in fact, with a pencil skirt beneath, I LOVED it.
This surprised me. I have tried tunics with pants and have never felt good in them; I always feel they shorten the leg line (on me).
What think you? Did the proportions work on this okay? If so, why - and if not, why not? And do you think I could wear this tunic successfully with pants?
Thanks for looking - more soon!
And thanks also for all your help with my preparation.
