Why is it that a gal can't wear orange and black without the inevitable (and asinine) Halloween jokes flowing freely from every dufus in a twenty metre radius? I guess that's why the withering stare was invented.
Anyhoodle, this outfit centred around two of my favourite things: getting UFOs off my back and getting cashmere onto it. First, let's chat about the UFOs. The pants are (yet another pair of) Loes Hinse Hepburns made from a black linen/rayon blend woven purchased from Fabric Mart. The top is a shortened version of the Textile Studio Madison Avenue dress, created from a knit purchased when Textile Studio was still a purveyor of beautiful fabrics (Man, I miss that resource. Marsha, why have you forsaken me?).
Over top, I threw on an orange cardigan that was one of the many purchases made during the Great Cashmere Haul of 2009. Lastly, I pinned on an enamel bee from the Joan Rivers jewelery collection sold on the Shopping Channel (the Canadian home shopping network) and donned my black double strap Marilla Mary Janes by Clarks. All together, a comfy, professional outfit.
