Making the most out of my wardrobe


I am really working to make the most out of my wardrobe. This dress is short sleeved and thus would normally fall under the non-winter category of clothing. But a cardigan fixed that! The dress is from Cleo and was about $15 in fall of 2008. the sweater is Banana Republic via Goodwill.
I explored layering tights. I am too old to wear white tights alone, but with a cool pair of black fishnet-like tights over teh top, they work really well.

I just wanted to show the fun detail on this shirtwaist dress.

The dress came with a matching cotton tie belt, but I thought the big burgundy belt added a little more interest. (BTW, a little behind.....this was Thursdays outfit)
