This is a recent thrift store find. Simple black jersey boatneck (supposedly very flattering to the small chested.) We are headed to a pizza/birthday party in Crown Heights tonight and it's actually hot out. The nice lady detectives who came to our apartment were sweating and I offered them water. Blokey's testimony was useful for them, which was good, and we found out that the crime, while still terrible, was far less heinous then the neighborhood gossip suggested.
I also picked up this "mod" style dress. I take mod as being in the style of the swinging sixties London, often made of up stiffer woven or double knit fabrics, without much tailoring. It's adorable, maybe little big (I can resize soon), but how to wear it without looking like Santa Claus? It's too hot (70 degrees) to wear right now, but it will get colder again. It needs a slip (Blokey calls double knit polyester "wearing oil" since it's basically petroleum).
The sleeves are slightly puffed and quite darling. Necklace? White tights?
Blokey suggested a coat. I am afraid of black with this dress. Too Santa-y
