I wore this to my twin nieces' birthday party a week ago. The full skirt made the outfit a little formal, but I wanted to wear it out. It's a little big -- you know how much I prefer super-cinched waists -- but I liked how it was partly lined in tulle. I should have ironed it, but I always seem to run out of time when getting ready for parties. Anyway, another plus was getting to wear my art-deco Imagine flats. I think these shoes are so lovely. (If you want to get them, they run really small. So go 2 full sizes up!) I was overdressed for the kid party, but, sadly, opportunities to dress up these days are few and far between. I haven't had a ladies' night out in a while, so I was almost desperate to wear something fancy-ish last weekend! No one in my life has been getting married or having fancy birthday celebrations lately. Kinda sad, no? Come on, family and friends, get on it!
