Black Magic Woman

I'm not sure why I decided to go all black today, but here I am in a black dress, black tights and black shoes. It's probably a little too much black with no color to break it up, but since I've already started my day, I guess it's too late to go back now...

The dress today is one that I'm not completely in love with, although it is by one of my favorite designers: Cynthia Steffe. I think this dress was meant to be worn by someone with a larger upper body, as the ruffles overwhelm me a bit.

You also can't see it in the picture, but the left side of the dress has a gold zipper running up its length. This makes it difficult for the dress to lay correctly at any time, so that's another frustrating detail... which may be why I don't wear this dress too often. However, I am pulling out everything for the Fashion Challenge. Today is Day #61! So far I have worn 60 dresses and one suit. 

The official name of this dress is the Cynthia Steffe Sleeveless Ruffled Cotton Eyelet Dress. I could only find it online in a size zero at Lord and Taylor, but who knows - you could see it on Smart Bargains or Bluefly in a few months.

The shoes today are just my Charles by Charles David peep toe pumps that I've had for years. I'm exhausted today and it's only Tuesday! I can't wait for Thanksgiving!
