30 for 30, day 9. Confessions.

16 Nov
Purple and red. Not just for The Tudors*

That’s no brooch, that’s a barrette, baby!

Three’s company: Lace, leather and suede

Time for a confession. I love this dress, it’s one of my favorites. I’ve easily worn it too many times to count last year. It’s perfect and soft and flowy and beautifully purple, the cut is forgiving enough that it’s flattering no matter what kind of day I’m having.

And I’ve never worn it this way. I really pushed myself to leave my favorite deep aqua cashmere cardi out of the remix. It would have been too easy, it matches practically everything in my closet. I used to wear this dress with said cardi.

Sometimes I think purple was just made to go with red. So regal. I didn’t need the sweater most of the day, the red accents came in the form of a red brooch and skinny belt.

I really wanted to wear the over-sized flower on my wrist but it kept flopping around. I’m going to find some good ribbon and secure it differently next time. A girl’s gotta get creative when using hair accessories for other purposes.

Grey lacy flower tights ended at the pretty bows on my comfortable ballet flats.

Deets: Purple dress/Brass Plum, red sweater/BCBG, red skinny belt/Georgiou, red barrette/unknown, flower tights/Nordstrom’s, black flats, Ecco.

* This brings to mind one of my favorite quotes: “If you can’t be good, be the least bad you can be.” – The Tudors.
