All You Need is Love

Today's weather can only be described as "yucky": humid, rainy, foggy and just very, very gray. Although it's not as cold as it was yesterday, a cold front is on its way. I guess that's to be expected, since today is the last day of November!

I am in Betsey Johnson today. She was probably the first real designer I took a shine to, after getting one of her dresses on sale at Neiman Marcus to wear for our engagement pictures back in 2003.

I consider this dress a throwback to the 1950s, something they might wear on Mad Men. The cap sleeves and belt all do their best to accentuate a tiny waist and slim the arms, while the full skirts hides bigger hips and thighs. This is probably one of my favorite styles... in fact, I love the fashion from the 1950s and early 1960s. I especially love the dresses Grace Kelly wore in Rear Window.

The shoes today are from Nine West -- the Nine West Women's Cawley Platform Pumps -- and I have my Michele bag with me, of course! I'm usually not without it these days. I am hoping to convince Chapin to buy me a Michele watch for Christmas! :)

Since I am wearing Betsey Johnson today, I also want to give a shout out to one of my loyal readers who is not related to me: Laviolet! She is a fan of Betsey Johnson as well. Thanks for reading!
