For many years, my husband was fortunate enough to travel to Rome on a pretty regular basis (in his job as an airline pilot), and in 2001 he was able to obtain a papal blessing--with both of our names on it--from JPII, for our 21st wedding anniversary. There was something lost in the translation, though, because the document actually reads "on the occasion of their 21th Wedding Anniversary." But we cherish it all the same!
Okay then, here's my Palm Sunday outfit.
~Navy crepe sheath, fully-lined: made on my Kenmore sewing machine using New Look pattern #6270
~Polka dot cardigan: Spence knits (purchased at B.J.'s wholesale club for about 70% off retail)
~Nude-colored opaque tights: Wal-Mart
~Not-too-high-heeled navy pumps: Hush Puppies (I've had them too long to remember where I got them)
The thing I love about this dress is that it's very versatile. It can be dressy or casual, depending on how you choose to accessorize it. It's like a LNBD (the navy blue version of the little black dress).
|With the cardigan, this princess-seamed sheath is perfect for Mass. If I wear it with dramatic jewelry and/or a|
pashmina over my shoulders instead, it's perfect for a wedding or a night on the town.
