Dare to be different

Wear a dress instead of pants



I was invited to a baby shower not long ago.  I thought ….”everyone will be there in their capri pants;  I’m going to wear a dress”
This easy flowing polyester knit is one of my favorite “go to” outfits.  I wear it with a cotton cropped cardigan and low wedge sandals.  The dress is Ralph Lauren and purchased several years ago at a Polo Outlet Store (one of my favorite places to shop)  I wear it with a cardigan because the dress is sleeveless and my upper arms are not what they used to be.  I’m all for covering up when possible.

Shoes are by Alex Marie and were recently purchased at Dillard's


















BUT I recently made the same style using a Vogue Pattern   









Elegance is not standing out, but being remembered         Giorgio Armani

    1. Terri, I should make more, but I love to shop sales where one can buy great clothes for less than they can be made
