A few Fridays ago, I solicited some advice on which outfit to wear to my Paris date. Today, I reveal the results. Drumroll, please…
Side note: Have you ever seen this article on 8 New Punctuation Marks We Desperately Need? If not, check it out. I think this would be the perfect time for the superellipsis. 🙂
I went with the skirt instead of pants, with a few tweaks. My beret wasn’t gray, it was purple with a turquoise ribbon. And, even more miraculously, I made it myself! As someone who hasn’t touched a sewing machine in several months, I have to say it’s quite the feat. Also, I couldn’t find my burgundy tights (which is strange, since I own two pairs), so I swapped them out for gray cable-knit ones. The outfit was a hit, which is great, because I ran out of time to wear my fancy dress. I also kept extremely warm and didn’t even miss the pants!
Thank you all for your votes! As promised, I will have another opinion poll in the near future.
Oh, and before I forget, here’s a picture. Unfortunately, I forgot to capture the bottom half with the tights and boots, so I’ll have to remember to don the outfit again and replace this picture. But for now, there’s this:
Closeup of beret (handmade), xo earrings (bought at Farmer’s Market), and necklace (Christmas gift).
Skirt (gifted) and tights (bought at Target, 2012).
