Ladies, thank you *so* much for the compliments and vote of confidence on my formal dress! I spent an unseemly portion of my day looking up other Butterick Retro patterns to see what I could come up with. Truthfully though, I only need a formal once or twice a year. This one will take me through 2o10.
So, as I have mentioned several times, I am TERRIBLE with jewelry and accessories. I ordered this bracelet from Etsy for around $30 to wear with my dress.
It was shipped a week ago today, but I didn’t pay attention to notice that is was from CANADA! It did arrive today. But, by Saturday I was desperate for a good accessory. In a fit of desperation, I let my friend who makes twice as much as me, and six times if you count her husband’s salary, talk me in to this over priced vintage piece from a pretentious boutique. I won’t tell you how much I paid. I’m too embarassed.
I love it too. But, I wish my Etsy bracelet came in time.
