Dress - Modcloth
Studio 1940 cardigan - Fashion Bug (ages ago!)
Danskin black tee - Walmart
Handmade purse - eBay
Clarks shoes - thrifted
I like that Modcloth has reviews and recommendations on sizing, but it didn't help me a lot with this purchase. My body is unique and what others said about fit didn't necessarily apply to me. So I had to exchange my first choice for a different size. It was quite simple to do and the new dress arrived quickly. This one fits better, although there's still something kind of wonky about the bodice on me. With a cardigan over it, however, it's not noticeable.
Of course Etta Pooka needed to be in the pictures! She's the inspiration behind this entire outfit, after all, and she's the perfect accessory. Sadly, I could not take her to church with me, because for some reason dogs aren't allowed.
Pooka still greatly dislikes the wood floor in our bedroom, which is why she looks rather apprehensive. She's only slightly less afraid of the floor while up on my lap in the chair. But at least this time she didn't try to claw her way to the top of my head. Poor sad dog...
Necklace - gift from my Mom
Earrings - thrifted
And, finally, here's a look at my new haircut. It's a big change, isn't it? Several people at church said they liked it, but I'm not entirely sure that I am all that fond of it. My hair never looks the way I envision it with a new cut. Well, at any rate, it will grow eventually and I can try something else.
