For Love of Silk

I didn't have occasion to wear this lovely until a couple of weeks ago when I decided that it would be perfect for an outdoor wedding. I found it in the Spring at a local thrift store and while it wasn't love at first sight when I pulled it from the rack, I was absolutely smitten once in the fitting room. This is easily one of the most feminine pieces I own. It's no secret that I love dresses, but there's something about the nude silk and black lace detail that makes this one extra special.

Back in the suns good graces after a week of cold and rain, reminiscent of what the Midwest must experience in early fall; I couldn't wait to get dressed up again. Suede heels obviously don't work well in rainy weather and I'd sooner don a pair of boyfriend jeans and a chunky cardigan than freeze my legs in this metallic mini, but when the streets dried and things warmed up a bit, these two pieces were top of mind.
