I'll go first:

I LOVE dresses! They make me feel great! I prefer wearing them in warm and hot weather by a billion percent. Ideally I would live in a much warmer climate - like So Cal - so that I could wear dresses more frequently.

My dresses must be: midi length (unless I wear them over pants as tunics), sleeved, fitted & flared, shirt style, and occasionally sack or shift. No sheaths, body con or sleeveless. I need to be able to move fast in my dresses, walk many steps on the streets, do the odd pirouette on my tip toes, and feel like a pouting 007 ready for glam action with the help of Super Sam. Hence I need MOVEMENT, but with structure and polish. I like solids and patterns, but no solid black dresses because they don't make me happy. I wear 99.99% of my dresses with flats.

I'm starting the ball rolling with golden oldies and neutrals since I've been wearing hectic colour for weeks. I felt like neutrals today, and listen to my feelings.

CM dress is navy and white - a season old
Paige Denim Jacket - 7 years old
Rosie Bag from the Boston gathering - 5 years old
FS loafers - duplicated second pair
Sunnies - 1960 vintage with prescription
Pearl jewellery - all custom made

All my outfits are authentic. Nothing is for show. I have errands to run, some work downtown, Sam to walk, and supper with girlfriends tonight. All on foot. This is what I'm wearing.

Who's joining me?
