You said you wanted to see my selfie-movies. Be careful what you wish for!
When I want to see how an outfit looks, I don’t take a photo. I make a little movie. I think this is much more effective than holding a camera at an odd angle in front of a full length mirror.
Also remember: I don’t have a full-length mirror.
I went to a conference this week. The weather was expected to be mid 70s during the days, low 60s at night. The schedule included panel discussions during the day and a cocktail hour and sort-of fancy dinner on both nights. I packed an odd assortment of clothes: four sleeveless dresses, one of which was shiny; a taffeta jacket for evening that is just a little bit matronly; an uncomfortable pair of patent leather wedges to wear both days and both evenings. I wore a pair of wide-legged canvas utility trousers, a short-sleeved white blouse, and my studded mules. Hmmmmm.
You’ve seen the black dress before, with a slim, merino wool turtleneck under it. I think I like it much better without the turtleneck.
Note: I trashed the hotel room, just like Johnny Depp.
Here is what I wore on the second day of the conference.
You’ve seen this dress before with a long-sleeved floral blouse under it. I think this short-sleeved dotted swiss blouse works well.
Part way through, I become distracted. So typical.
Please disregard the mess in the kitchen. When I come home from work, I just drop everything in the kitchen.
In case you are wondering what other dresses made the trip: this one and this one.
Have a fantastic weekend!
