My life is rather casual these days, to put it mildly. Up north I was in the corporate world more than a decade ago and had clothes for business and also for evening entertaining. Not so much anymore. So when our dear friends extended this invitation yesterday I scrambled for a little to decide what I would wear/sew for this weekend.
Last year at the wonderful New Year's Day sale at Dillard's dept. store I bought myself two dressy tops for just such a possible holiday future invitation. I have another one that I bought about four years ago which has served me well with dressy black pants through some holiday parties and gatherings. But this is going to be a dance at their lovely club with a band that we enjoy dancing to so very much. Time to get a skirt project going.
I am deciding between these three tops. I love the look of the purple twist top and have a perfect piece of purple crinkled rayon with which to make a skirt. So here's one idea although not particularly Christmas-y.
|Purple is exact match for the RTW top|
|First choice for the burgundy lace|
|Too fussy for the glitter fabric|
I'll show you all the possible lining choices I've been testing this morning. I'm leaning towards the black; what do you think?
|dark grey lining|
|hot pink lining|
