The Mission

plum silk dress

My mission of the moment is to start wearing the clothes I never wear for one reason or another. This dress has been sitting in my wardrobe since winter, with its matching velvet-trimmed jacket. I only wanted the jacket when I bought it, so I haven't given the dress a second thought until now. I love it - it fits perfectly. I should also mention that when I bought it on eBay back in June I paid the princely sum of $2.99. Oh yes.

I'm wearing:

• 1940's plum-coloured silk dress with pleated bust, eBay.
• Ivory belt from 'cue' dress.
• White stilettos, 'betts'.
• Tattooed man brooch from etsy.

Also, for whatever reason, I was imagining in my head that this dress was a sheath dress or a wiggle dress - and I don't wear either of those styles very often. But it's not - it has a twirly skirt! I'm so happy!
