WINTER WHITE

1-20-10 1

I was stuck inside all day today with no internet and couldn't wait to get home to see if anyone responded to my earlier post.  I was blown away by all of your great points and input.  If you haven't read it yet, head on over and weigh in on the style vs. fashion debate.

In other news, it was another busy and rushed day.  And I apparently have no idea what day of the week it is, either, because I told someone I would see them today, when I clearly meant tomorrow - but that was yesterday, when today was tomorrow and tomorrow was Thursday.  Well, you get the drift ... - anyway, oopsie!

Knowing what kind of a morning it would be, I did set out my clothes last night.  What a difference it makes!  I know this - I just need to do it.  A great dress is perfect for days like today.  They don't require much fuss and can be remixed with a simple change of accessories.  You can see the first way I wore it here.

It may quite possibly be the softest thing I own.  Well, the softest thing I own that's appropriate to wear in public anyway.

And a big huge thanks to the Meatball for being so patient this morning and snapping a few pictures before work.  I knew I wouldn't have enough time to do the whole tripod fandangle (is that a word and, if so, how do you spell it?), but I also knew it would be dark after work.  So, thanks, babe! (I love the last one!)

  25. Fab! Have you see Kate Spade's holiday line? She did red and white just like this! Of course, you're version is much, MUCH more affordable. Who can't afford "practically free?"
