I know I threatened to wear trashtastic faux-military garb to the Military Ball, but let's face it: a middle-aged woman in an outfit like that is an invitation to a party nobody wants to go to.
My fairy godsister Rachel came through on short notice with this toile-printed dress. I chose to pair it with a cardigan and stockings because although I know it's more trendy to wear a boobie dress and bare legs, the temperatures were in the forties last night. I don't mind having my feet hurt for fashion, but I hate being cold.
Rachel also sent me some Moroccan Oil, which helped to get my hair smooth instead of curly. Be very impressed - that's a 45 minute hairdo right there. You won't be seeing it again any time soon.
What I'm wearing:
Dress by Mystic, borrowed from my awesome sister Rachel
Sweater by Mag Couture, purchased from Modcloth.com
Shoes (even though you can't see them) by Mootsies Tootsies
Vintage jewelry, belonged to my Gram
Vintage handbag, belonged to my Gram
