Day 4 of the LBD challenge – 7 Looks x 7 Days.
I have this silvery grey duster-style lace jacket thing that is from a dress I had when I was
much MUCH, larger. I should have given it away ages ago but it is so pretty that I have hung on to it. Even carried it from the US on my migration south, but still haven’t worn it for over 10 years! Well now I think I have a reason, or at least a way to wear it again.
The inspiration for this look comes from both the hi-low hem looks that are popular right now and all the looks with the see-through chiffon skirts over skinny pants/leggings or short skirts.
Because the silver overlay/jacket is SOOOOO big, I had to add a belt to keep the look together but I actually think it looks pretty good. Just to make sure the look is really flashy I have put on a couple of strands of vintage crystal beads with a pearl and onyx necklace, silver and sapphire bracelets, bling ring and for fun, my pony skin black and white pumps, purchased from Nine West a few years ago.
I have some black polka-dot stockings that I thought about wearing with this look but felt they would just be too much, so I went with plain old black.
What I like about this look:
At long last I get to wear the silver overlay!
I have to admit, I love the shoes.
The lace is very ladylike and the colour is lovely.
What I don’t like about this look:
What do you think? Was it a good idea to hang on to this silver overlay/jacket all these years and all these miles?
