After my short trip away we had planned to take the train to surprise my parents on our way back from a charity auction. But, our plans had to be shortened abruptly after a major work related situation needed to be dealt with … so, instead of being aggravated I found a spot to take a snapshot. You know, improvisation can often be an uplifting cure for a day full of random push and pulls.
Afterward, the day became far better and I changed (for an early dinner) into this sheer mother of pearl lace dress. I figured, hey, it was packed with me … why not take a blogger opportunity and do a quick photo!
Right, occasionally I’ve found it best to try to be content and think fashion in situations like these—especially, if you’re on-call for a special project. A dose of fashion can be just the inspiring prescription needed.
As for the dress, it actually fits better than expected, and I love its romantic simplicity. I chose this delicate colour because it reminded me of a shorter version of a vintage slip that I had seen long ago.
Decades ago, faux pleats, a crochet neck trim, and a very short hemline would have unsettled me for an attempted look of vintage-modern elegance. However, after adding a ruffled lace underskirt as a necessary petticoat my confidence was restored immediately! Precisely, I think the ruffled lace underskirt made this dress more like my style. The skirt's extra poof of feminine enchantment made all the difference!
Do you have impromptu fashion moments of inspiration?
