1/2: Angie's blog post was timely as I dressed up her casual black dress ensemble for a funeral. EF black dress, layered gold necklaces, Me Too low heeled patent pumps, Ted Baker clutch, Citron Santa Monica silk jacket, EF obi belt.
3-5: a more casual version of the ensemble and variations worn the same day. A thrifted Express black dress, white denm vest added, EF linen cardi and Zulu bead necklaces.
6/7: J Jill aqua dress
8-11: the other side of the reversible dress fron Part 1. 11 is a close up of a Peruvian necklace from a friend. This day, for Angie, I tried something different with my hair, putting in rollers after washing it for more volume.
12: pink EF dress. Worn casually with espadrilles
13: Chambray dress worn over faded rolled jeans.
For Angie and part of my challenge, some of these dress outfits have no black. On the other hand you see that I have several black dresses. They are workhorses and establish a basic to change with toppers and accessories.
Please tell me very honestly what you think looks good and what isn't working. I'd love your ideas for styling too. For me the biggest fail in this group is the pink dress outfit because I don't like it with the espadrilles. I didn't get a photo but later changed into my sapphire blue dress of the same shape and the black ankle-strap shoes. I also felt that I had too much going on in #2. I think a scarf would have been better than the gold necklaces but it wS too hot.
