Second day of the Festive December challenge. For church and a later lessons and carols Advent program I wore a black merino top with a black lace tube skirt, black leather tall boots, black fleece-lined tights and black leather trench coat. For relief from all the black, a silk black, white and grey scarf and sparkly snowflake earrings from yesterday were added. You can’t see all the textures very well, so I took a photo of part of the lace skirt, tights and boots. Lots of black with pearls or sparkly beads at church today although several went deep purple for Advent. I welcome your comments and suggestions.
On the closet edit, I discovered a wool dress that I feel is too short even with leggings and a black velvet top that seems too tight. Both are history. The lace skirt I am wearing needs to earn its place. It does not get much wear in my mostly casual life, but has its moments like dressing up a sweater and tights and boots on a very cold day to be part of a warm comfortable outfit. You will probably see it again this month.
