The outfit: Armadillo Dress + Black Vest
The occasion: lunch date with Scott where he kindly switched me sandwiches because I liked his better, working 9 to 5
The reflection: I made this black vest almost a year and a half ago now, and as I buttoned it up this morning, I realized it's probably one of the better-made pieces I have. It's lined and the buttons are really even! I took my time on this one and I think it came out really quality. I liked this outfit today because of the masculine/feminine dichotomy within it: menswear-inspired vest and boots versus a slim-fitting dress and lace tights. Although I can hear my mother's voice in my head now saying, "Valerie, wear some color!" Sorry, Mom :)
And I still maintain that the sleeves on this dress look like armadillos.
