Today is Election Day in the U.S.! In Washington state, along with Oregon and Colorado, we have mail-in voting — that means we can vote at home instead of having to stand and wait in long lines to vote on Election Day! — so this is technically what I wore a couple of weeks ago when I dropped off my mail-in ballot on my way to work. But that didn’t translate well to a blog post title. 😉
I’m NOT going to get into politics or specifics about any politician or candidate as that’s not the point or focus of this style blog. But I will say that for my American readers, I hope you are/were able to vote and do vote, via whatever voting methods are available to you in your state.
I love this photo above! Not just because of my delighted “I did it!” facial expression, but also because Sam managed to capture the EXACT moment the envelope was sliding down the chute. Awesome!
The first time I wore this dress, as seen here, I didn’t like the extra line of white stitching on the bust, so I mentioned the possibility of blacking out that bit of stitching. And I did! (I just used a black Sharpie.) I felt MUCH more comfortable wearing the dress this time, and I don’t think it detracts from the rest of the interesting seaming and details on this dress.
It was a windy day, so I’m glad I wore a sheath dress. This was the dress that eShakti made for me for a “trial fit” exercise this past summer. I wanted to transition the dress for fall, as the colors of the waistband and stitching (olive with orange, yellow, and white stitching) are perfect for the fall season. Transitioning the dress for fall basically boiled down to me adding tights and closed-toe shoes! I also took a bronze shawl with me to work, in case I got chilly. (I did.)
I think this is the first time I’ve paired black tights with my beloved bronze Franco Sarto pumps (which I thrifted a few falls ago!). I really liked the mix of neutrals and how the black tights made the bronze heels look a bit darker.
