Hit The Ground Running, Sitting, and Strutting

This week has immensely been a dose of breaking a sweat and getting back into the routine of life. Most everyone have likely gone back to the reality of "work mode," although I had an extra week to slowly get up to speed, yet I still felt somewhat overwhelmed. But, such is life and all good holidays must come to an end, and there is joy even amidst industrious days.

I had a semi-glamourous dress that I've only been able to wear once for reasons unknown ... that or the fact that it's really a bit shorter than I wanted, especially with each year that passes. Sitting in ideal posture, and even being in an upstanding position was apparent enough that I would need something underneath for layering these splendid threads of sheen. The dress was also a gift so I had been rather selective in its wearing moments.

But, my modern storage container (in its steamer trunk-ish style), came to the rescue! After rummaging through playful pieces alike I found one of my favourite lace underskirts, a handy short petticoat that has lended itself very useful in style times such as these!

The ocassion: absolutely nothing extravagant, merely a dinner, one of our pre-new year festivities as a send-off for loved ones. I threw on my denim jacket to make the outfit more casual, otherwise it could have been slightly a bit much for a sushi dinner given the silk-satin luster and its overall "frilly" attributes. But, you know ... of course I was going to wear it regardless!

    It looks so great paired with the denim - it really anchors the lace and sort of adds a bit of toughness. Love it!
