Are you guys getting tired of me using my driveway as my catwalk and back drop for my pics yet? I am. But I can't be picky when I am at the mercy of whoever is around to take a few shots. It's been kinda hard to get pictures lately....as every blogger knows. Waa waa waa..
I have kinda surprised myself with this dress. It's black, loose and short. All things I don't usually do but you know what...I REALLY like it!
Pattern: Newlook 6145
Fabric used: 'Arabella' polyester suiting. I am loving this fabric lately!
Changes I made: I shortened the front hem by about 3.5 inches and added a faux leather trim. I also added the trim to the sleeves as well.
Repeat worthy? Yes. I am tempted to make this in a bright yellow but omit the zipper and put a large keyhole design in the back.

Soooo...about the title. Husband was with me when I was reviewing the pics for this post (he didn't take these ones) and remarked that he really like my hat with the dress. Great! BUT then he said...
are you ready...?
"You need some new shoes...you always wear the same ones."
OH MY GOSH. I fell in love all over again. Weak in the knees was this girl. Yeah.. he's gonna get lucky. That man is pretty great...he bought these shoes for me in the first place and now thinks I need more..well....okaaaay.
For those of you not diggin' the hat...here's a shot of the outfit... sans hat.
