I had some second thoughts about the wrap I bought to go with the navy dress I’m wearing to my niece’s wedding, so I popped back into Nordstrom to bring home a couple more options (whatever I choose not to wear will be returned).

Also, I decided to try on some of my leather jackets with the dress, as was suggested in my last thread. Some work better than others, but I will reserve my thoughts until I hear what you all think.

1-2 silver wrap/scarf

3-4 black with metallic thread wrap/scarf

5-7 Black Helmut Lang leather jacket

8-10 navy Vince jacket (pulled from the holding zone) - the navies don’t match

11-13 Black Theory mixed media tweed (with a bit of sheen) and leather (pulled from the holding zone)

14-15 muted gold-ish metallic Theory jacket (purchases ages ago, I keep rescuing it from the holding zone even though the color is not easy for me)

16-17 My precious My favorite cobalt blue IRO jacket

18 my jewelry - silver toned, pretty simple - dramatic earrings, tennis bracelet gift from hubs, vintage diamond ring inherited from mom, and my wedding band set.

19 the silver clutch, with both scarf/wraps

If one of these jackets works, I’ll likely take a jacket AND a wrap so I’ll be prepared for warmer or cooler temps.

What do you think?

Oh! Ignore the safety pins — they’re marking some places where I am going to gently tack down some of the errant lace that sticks out. I’ve discovered that the sticking out becomes more problematic as I sit and stand, and I don’t want it to look weird in photos.
