It's taken me about two hours to write this post. Jane Eyre is on TV, and I keep getting sidetracked by Mr. Rochester's waistcoats, breeches and early Victorian gazes of longing.
Today's effort, in lieu of a corset, petticoats, and that awful center-parted, pulled-down over the ears hair that the women of the 1850s walked around in, I decided to go with this. Casual sequins, flat loafers, and a faux leather and denim skirt. It's New Year's Eve after all. Instead of going all-out glam, I'm taking a more casual approach this year. Yes, there's bling, but it's undone bling. I like that it's not trying too hard. In fact, it's practically passing for normal. Happy New Year everyone!
