Small Town Girl

May 14th, 2010 by Selise

I’m happy to be wearing this dress today. For some reason I remembered it being too short and/or tight when I pulled it out of my winter stuff a couple of weeks back. I’d hung it up in my wardrobe with the intention of giving it one last shot before I moved it to the Goodwill bag. To be honest I was dubious at best.

But last night, when I realised that I didn’t have anything planned for today/tonight (we’re meeting friends for drinks and dinner) my eye settled on it in my wardrobe in a moment of “what if?” It definitely needed leggings and I wanted something a little more interesting than plain black so I went with these floral ones.

Together with the belt, boots and denim jacket I feel like a small town girl from the late 70’s. The dress tie worn as a head band and the big hair (I can’t help it) lend it a little more of an 80’s feel though. I’m happy with it either way. I actually got a pat on the back (well, shoulder) for this outfit at work today. Awesome.

I’d just like to point out my boots. Don’t they look gorgeous? I took them in to have the sole reattached (I’d walked through the stitching), the back sewed and the heels re-done. When I picked them up he’d given them a good oiling too. They looked like a whole new pair of boots! Now I can get another 6 years out of them. Thanks Cobbler.
