One of the things I love about NYC–well, actually any city–is shopping. There’s always something to find that I haven’t seen where I live, like this cute wrap dress from Bebenoir in Harlem. This photo was taken a few blocks from the shop on the steps of a charming old brownstone in August.
These days in January, I’m enjoying Seattle and browsing through shops and boutiques. I can only buy as much as I can pack in my little carry-on suitcase, but it’s a good thing most of the clothes I brought are going into the clothing exchange that my daughter Jean is hosting on Saturday. I’m so excited!
This dress is not going into the exchange. I can wear it all through the seasons, especially here in Seattle with days as mild as April. I added a black lace camisole, black tights, booties and can also wear a coral cardigan to keep warm.
It has three quarter length sleeves (as in the first photo) but they got pulled up from my coat and I didn’t notice till I saw the photos.
I love the south-west colours and I wear either turquoise or coral (colour) jewellery. I made this necklace with round coral coloured beads and small silver beads.
I also wear it with a turquoise necklace I made (left) and I brought some beads to make a necklace while I’m here. I’m still working on it (right) and will have it finished before I go back home.
Do you enjoy making things? What projects are you working on?
