What do you do when you have a long-sleeved minidress that's too short for work and a sequined skirt that's too sparkly for work? Layer them. I used a beaded belt to tie together the moody blues and blacks. I found the belt at the thrift store with the original tag still on. It was expensive by secondhand standards ($15) but the beading continues around the back and is quite exquisite. Also it's from Tristan and they tend to make quality goods that hold up well. The original price was $65.
The stonework behind me in the photos is the side of an abandoned building just down the street from where N and I work. We were happy to discover such a pretty and secluded little nook for photos. You will probably see us here again. I think it'll be really pretty after the first snowfall...if we can drag our butts out into the cold!
