A Touch of Pink II...

Okay, so yesterday was a bit more than a "touch" of pink.

If you missed it, click over to A Touch Of Pink to see my $10 pink suede skirt.

I am really into polka dots at the moment.  I suspect that these posts are evidence enough of that fact.

The problem, I just do not want to wear the same pieces day after day.  Truth time... I actually do want to wear some of my favorites EVERY single day... but then who doesn't it?  So more accurately, I know that I really should make more of an effort to expand my horizons.  This blog has actually been very good in that respect.  If the blog has given me nothing else, it has given me that.


Need more polka dots.  Dilemma.  Already spent "fashion budget" for the month.  Greater dilemma.  What to do?

Dig through the abandoned wasteland that is the back of my closet.  This is the region that only the US Marine Corps should actually venture.  Even the spiders are a little scared.  Do not laugh, you know you have the same kinds of "nooks and crannies"... "corners and cubbies."  You know, the portions of your closet where things just get lost... the abyss... the Bermuda Triangle.

Once again, I digress... moving on...

In the back of the closet I found this little gem... my very own polka dot skirt in a simple black and white pattern.  Subtle, yes but cute.  I see why I bought it... at Harold's... I know.

What do you think?

It is not the cut that I ordinarily prefer.  Perhaps that is why it got "lost" to begin with?  Never mind, she has found the sun again.  Perhaps another spin soon?  We will see?

I also wanted some color today.  The weatherman says rain tomorrow for sure.  In fact, sounds like a truly craptastic day ahead. 

BTW... "craptastic" is not my word... belongs to Kassi over at The Closet Intervention.

She is great, take a look at her blog.

And another misstep.  Aah, the hazards of blogging.  Moving on, round two...

I decided to let the skirt speak for itself and went with a simple white oxford.  I think too much color on top and the polka dots would have been "lost" in the ensemble.

Dizzy yet?


Still in need of some color I opted for a "touch" of pink... rockin' pink...

These Evan Picone suede heels have been a staple of my wardrobe for as long as I can remember.

"I love it when a plan comes together!"

Some TV or movie character said that.  Who was it?  Anyone?

And the smartly dressed Dallas executive looks like this today...

I hope your day is wonderful today and if it rains where you are I hope it is a truly "craptastic" day!
