So the “dress” is not really a dress… it’s the slip from under the lipsy dress in this post (http://diyainherstilettos.blogspot.com/2010/01/packing-light.html). The scarf is also not a scarf… it’s a piece of black lace I picked up on etsy and wanted to decorate my room with but never found the spot for. Anyway, this slip seems to be pretty versatile (and so shiny and soft to the touch!) so I’m in love with my “new” dress. I was so proud to pack 5 days’ worth of outfits in one carry-on-sized hand bag (along with jewelry and 2 pairs of shoes). Somehow this outfit seems to be really attention-getting and when I dropped into a little Mexican restraurant in San Saba (TX) with my bf every single cowboy seemed to be staring. Yes, I said cowboys. Today must have been the annual cowboy conference or something because I swear I saw around 30 authentic cowboys crowded into one tiny restaurant. I knotted the pearls once again since that’s my favorite way to wear them… and I really need new black pumps since I keep wearing these. Any suggestions?? I also seem to be very boring in the purse department… black leather and zipper/stud/buckles details get me every time.
