Wow, I really have been getting out all of my Newport News things lately. Yes, this dress is from NN. It came with a bunch of ironed-on silver tone studs on the shoulders, but those had to go. Fortunately, I was able to pull them off without much residue being left behind. Seems like I’m always customizing my clothing, doesn’t it?
For a change, I thought I’d tuck a silk scarf into the neckline. I really love the look, although it didn’t want to stay in place through my 11 hour day. Maybe a bit of Fashion Tape would help, but I never seem to think of that until after the fact.
The highlight today is the silver brooch that belonged to my husband’s mother. I love wearing it, and I think it goes beautifully with this gray dress. The black scarf just highlights it even more. The bangles are slightly less meaningful, coming from H&M. But I was delighted by the fact that their bracelets come in two sizes! I bought the smaller size, which is a dream come true for my tiny wrists.
