Many thanks to all who participated in the February 1 theme of Rings! 37 of you joined in the fun with posts of your own. WOW. That’s by far our biggest theme participation so far. I can’t wait for March 1!

I’ve blogged about this dress before in one of my Day to Evening posts, where I styled it three different ways. I bought this one on sale at Dillard’s, and it was such a great value especially when you consider how versatile it is. And comfortable! I know a lot of men don’t appreciate empire-waist dresses because they don’t accentuate the female figure, but lucky for me my man loves just about everything! He compliments this dress quite often.
The shrug is also a repeat. It’s not very warm, but not only are winters in my area amazingly mild, but my office is also sweltering hot so I break out the summer clothes all winter long (and often sit at my desk with no shoes on, because it’s that hot, but don’t tell anyone! lol).
The necklace is all new to you. It was made by me from black onyx beads. While I love the beads, I guess I’m not too crazy about the necklace because I have only worn it once before. Some of the beads just refuse to lie flat. I might just disassemble this piece and try something else with the beads.
How do you feel about empire-waist dresses?
