Today we went to a memorial service for a colleague of my husband's. The weather is disgusting -- 12 degrees (brrrrr!) and pouring rain. And oh -- guess what your over-eager editor did a few weeks ago? That's right, she "retired" her one and only LBD. True, it was looking old and exhausted. True, the fit had never been very good to begin with. (It was a donation from a friend, not a purchase.) But but but...who knew there'd be a memorial to go to this week?

It was a sad and sudden death. DH is feeling very blue.

I hope the outfit I wore was sober and serious enough not to offend. First outing of the Trouvé blazer.

When I got home I immediately went for colour and some added warmth. The scarf is the famous MaryK "magic" scarf. You may not see it here but in addition to orange, it even has tomato red in the mix!

This poor scarf is torn, wrinkled, ravelled, and has definitely seen better days. But I can't give it up because it is just so useful!

I didn't actually wear #4, but will when it gets even colder here.

ETA: If Tanya feels like an errant student for being one day late with her ensemble, imagine how much trouble I'm going to get into for submitting a full two weeks after the date!
