I had events on both days of this past weekend. I realized while writing this that almost all the items I wore were altered by me

On Saturday we attended a wedding. I bought the Maggie London dress last fall, and had only worn it once to a Bar mitzvah in November. I decided to shorten it 2.5” before wearing it this time. We were in an endless spell of rainy, grey, and cold spring so needed a jacket. The dress was perfect for this wedding.

On Sunday we had an evening banquet with a dress code of “business formal”. The N&Z Jacket has frayed sleeves that are a little too long and catch in my fitbit strap. I need to remember to do something about it before I wear it again. The Adrienne Vitadini B/W polka dot blouse is a wrap style, and the crossover part kept shifting around so I stitched it closed. The Halogen pants (similar to the find) were part of a pant suit I bought more than 15 years ago. They were originally more flared but I got tired of that style and altered them a few years ago to have a straighter leg.

1. The ML Dress, nude pumps, nude bag
2. …same outfit with black faux leather jacket
3. …same dress in it’s original length (photo from last fall) at this posting https://youlookfab.com/welookf.....-2018-club
4. Tweed Jacket, slacks, etc

Would love to hear any comments or suggestions. I don't wear outfits like this very often but liked both of them. Actually I LOVE the dress, liked the other items.
