Worn: November 9, 2013
If I find a design I like, I usually buy it in two or three colors. This occasionally leads to entire outfits that differ mainly in color. If you compare this outfit to its immediate predecessor, the dress, cardigan, and earrings are otherwise identical, and the tights are the very same. But the look, I think, is somewhat different.
Like my other ribbed cardigan, I cut the front open after a decade of intermittant and declining use. This one, with the slightly less useful color, was actually the test case, before I risked ruining the other.
In retrospect,this outfit is surprisingly similar to one from this past April, when I previously wore this dress. My old standby white cardigan, which I have probably worn more times than piece of clothing, seems almost as blue as this one in the silvery shadowed light of dusk.
