putting on the ritz

outfit post <putting on the ritz>

valentine’s day is just around the corner, and what better time to pull out a festive ensemble? the dress i have on today is one that originally started out as an evening gown. by merely shortening the dress It has now resurfaced as cocktail attire. years ago, while living on Guam, my husband brought back a beautiful bolt of fabric he purchased for me from Thailand. the bodice is particularly beautiful, and is a traditional Thai hand woven fabric embroidered with gold. this is certainly a dress that has sentimental value to me so i was more than happy (and a little relieved it still fit) to wear this on my valentine date with my husband of 32 years. a cute faux fur, a few baubles, and a vintage clutch and i’m off to dinner. 

Happy Valentine’s Day – sending much love to each, and every one of you!
