OK, you’re thinking: Waaaay too sober — maybe even boring. I don’t agree. Think important jewelry, think “blank canvas,” possibilities, investment. We don’t have to be married to the belt — more possibilities.
That’s another positive aspect of virtual shopping I could do it after dark, I could do it in my pajamas if I chose. I realize I may need to do one more sweep to pull together my evening wear before I cull the pieces down into the keepers. Some I have chosen for today I selected by a simply criterion, they are beautiful, truly sigh-worthy. Would I necessarily dare to wear? Maybe not, but I want to savor them a little longer.
You’ll see what I mean and you may not agree or you may agree and think, “why in the world wouldn’t she?”
Maybe a little less dip in the décolleté pour moi.
What’s to say?
Nothing is more virtual, unfortunately, in my life than evening wear. Once upon a time I had many, many evening gowns, separates and a divine long, black velvet redingote that was lost in a long ago move. Some are still hanging in my closet. I should part with them, but somehow I can’t. I’m particularly enamored of a an exquisite and exquisitely simple Valentine number that made me feel gorgeous the instant I slipped it over my head.
I shall finish my virtual evening shopping next week and construct my complete fall/winter wardrobe. I know, I know. It’s about time.
Let me know what you think about today’s collection.
Tomorrow: More pictures of you(!)
***All three of these, admittedly drop dead gorgeous gowns, will be/would be taken immediately to Madame Sneady, my seamstress, for adjustments to the slits, slashes and no linings where there should be linings — at least for me. I prefer to have people look into my big, blue eyes when they speak to me rather than lower, if you see what I mean.
