New Life for a LBD...

Yesterday flew by rather quickly.  It was most marked by the fact I took myself out for a sacred, solo lunch date, mid-day, and savored a beautiful evening walk outdoors post dinner.  Yum!

Exercising my creativity muscles is every bit as important as daily physical activity is to my overall well-being.  Of course, I love to write and create art, but my creative pursuits also include exploring new ways to pair closet favorites...

Take--for example--this dress... I purchased it a few years ago for a very special event (our local Zonta club's tenth anniversary celebration--where I, as then club president, emceed). Since then, I've worn it to scads of other momentous occasions: wine tastings, my parents' 50th wedding anniversary bash, romantic dinner dates with Mark, etc., etc., etc....

Yesterday, I styled it with a neon-hued t-shirt.  Wore it as a jumper--rather than a LBD.  This gave my treasured "special occasion" dress new life...
