Fabulous Frock! I wasn't expecting to like this dress very much...it was my first Dauphine style...with its substantial black waist band & dropped waist, it seemed designed to be unflattering. However, the fit was fantastic & flattering. The only thing I wasn't fond of was the hi-lo hem line...because I dislike seeing the wrong side of the fabric. I'd buy this dress once GB retires it.  
This soft 60% silk cardigan was a thrift store find & a steal at $5. And in my TWO favorite patterns together...paisley & leopard, along with the best autumn color palette. 
These rust tights were my very first We Love Colors tights...a gift from Kate. I've had them ~five years & these are still my original pair. So, I guess you could say they hold up well & are worth every penny. What did I do without them?! The cold weather months are so much more colorful with them. 
My make-up with this outfit included...Urban Decay eyeliner in Mildew; UD eyeshadow in Lumbre, Dirty Talk, Scorched, & Ember; Toast lipstick by Bite Beauty; & CND Vinylux nail polish in Fine Vermillion. 
David was going to be in California for Thanksgiving & I wanted pictures...so, I wore this outfit to drive to Milwaukee with David to pick up our bathroom tile...but I only took a photo of the gold glitter grout...because gold glitter grout! First, we did a little thrifting where I saw these impossibly high, outrageous Louboutin heels. I found two pairs of shoes & two cardigans. Back in Madison...we picked out our Toto toilet & washlet...we ruled out toilets that open the lid when you get near it...eeeek...& decided on a more elegant shape...the one behind the talking lidded monster. Then, to our new house to work...where I got a box...what's in the box?
 A new bunch of excellent earrings from etXarte...
Thanksgiving at Angie & Toby's...always delicious, always better with dogs...
