All right. So, I had
this black strapless dress that I’ve always loved—it’s taffeta—and it had been
spending way too much time in my closet.
I threw it on and I still love the fit, but it needed something—after
all, I was going to dinner at his house! That’s when I may have gone a bit
overboard. I have this wonderful crinoline
in black taffeta with a tulle ruffle, so I put it on, but the dress still
looked bare so then I tried black lace stockings. I loved those but the outfit seemed a bit too
“girly” (nothing wrong with that but not for this dinner) so then I put on some
black short pleather boots. Still liking the look but it seemed a bit off
balance, so I added this sheer, dotted net ruffled blouse. I looked in the mirror and thought I had just
overdone it. So, I did what I normally
do and added more! I put on my faux
pearl necklace and wrapped the whole look up in a black velvet bow at my
waist. And that was it. I was ready to go.
