You’ve seen my closets. They aren’t that big.
Here, I must express gratitude for having more than one closet. I don’t have as much space as some, but I have more space than others. I am not complaining. But you can see where I am heading.
What do you do when your clothes fit, you love them, and you have no more space? A certain stasis might descend . . .
Do you remember my Best Suit?
To keep it fresh, I had the arms taken off the jacket and made the dress into a crop top and miniskirt.
No, I didn’t! You know me better than that.
I did, however, want to put the suit to more use.
Here is the suit-dress with a blouse underneath.
It’s good, right?
This vivid blue paisley/floral blouse adds a crisp, graphic element to the dress.
Low, block heels provide polish — and are another change from the way that I usually wear this dress with kitten heels.
The dress is a solid, but not plain. Beautiful seaming defines the waist and bodice and the square neckline is beautifully shaped by on pleat in each corner.
Come closer for a better look.
Finishing things off, my suede satchel, which still needs to be Fatimalized. This black suede is so deep and dark.
