Day 11: 1950's Housewife
Wear a dress or a skirt? Easy. Done. I love skirts. In fact, I wore ONLY skirts and dresses for the entirety of last summer. My jeans got ruined on our trip to England last April, and I HATE jeans shopping. Since I couldn't wear jeans to work, it just wasn't worth the hassle. Finally in October, after two days of shopping with a really honest friend, I finally had a pair that I liked. Yay, I had jeans again!
The next day I found out I was pregnant.
I feel like this dress has a 1950's housewife feel to it, and I love it! Those ladies sure knew how to dress. I was hoping the black belt would help make it a little more modern - what do you think?
Also, look! Belting! Color blocking! Belt-as-headband! Man, I'm learning so much from this challenge.
