Forum member Eirlys just celebrated her 84th birthday -- in beautiful, bright style. As well as a few stripes.
It disappointed her a little to see her fellow diners wearing ultra casual clothing -- and she wondered if she was alone in liking to dress up a little bit for dinner.
Well, it happened to be a gorgeous evening where I live. So Mr. Suz and I elected to go out for an impromptu patio supper at a local bistro.
My daytime outfit consisted of my Bernias, a pair of Mexx bermudas, a silk top from Costco, and a "matchy matchy" bag.
It took me all of 3 minutes to switch things up -- traded the shorts for a Vince Camuto tube skirt, and the sandals for my Okalas, for a second hit of matchy-matchy.
Dressed up? Yes, a little. Yet every bit as comfortable as the original outfit.
This multi-layered silk trapeze top came to me courtesy of Sveta, who found them at her local Costco last year. I seldom wore mine last year because it was a little bit long for me proportionately and I never could style it properly.
A quick trip to Wonder Woman East fixed that -- I had it trimmed just the smallest amount and now it feels much better on me. Yet another orphan-turned-workhorse. :) Sveta had challenged me last year to wear this striped skirt with bright colour as opposed to my fallback black or white, so Sveta, this is also for you.
