The celebration we were originally slated to attend is one sponsored by my husband's employer. It's a fairly swanky soiree; folks dress up quite a bit for it. Nice thing is, I'm far beyond the "old" days when I'd have purchased something new to wear to an event such as this. You see, I had planned on wearing one of several dresses already hanging in my closet, and I was more than fine with that (smile). Turns out it was the wisest choice to make, too.
These pics were taken, downtown, on Saturday morning--post my standing breakfast date with Mark (and, before the majority of the snow had fallen). I'm wearing a few "reused" pieces, here, as well. The vest had been my youngest son's. He received it as a holiday gift when he was still in junior high school (about 10 years ago). A growing boy, he outgrew it before he got much use wear out of it. That's okay, mama has, though! The sweater is thrifted. I bought it one evening last week. Isn't it great? It, too, looks barely (if ever) worn.
