I went a little bit brighter with the red today, with this just-below-knee-length satin skirt. And I was lucky to have a scarf that matched almost perfectly!
I’ve been known for wearing satin to work that’s a bit too fancy, so today I toned it down with a simple, jersey knit tunic-length top that ties in the back. The top has a deep v-neck, which I made appropriately modest using a lace band made just for such purposes. Have you seen these things? It seems they are becoming fairly popular, as I see them in mall stores, Target, even Jo-Ann (yes, the fabric store). They usually come in white, black, and flesh-tone and really are a brilliant solution for concealing cleavage at the office! 😉 They would be super-easy to make at home, too.
The silver, garnet and marcasite pendant is from Target, and of course the beaded necklace it hangs from was made by me. The beads look red and black, but they are actually dark red and brighter red.
Looking forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with for Red & Black Week today! And remember, you don’t have to post every day in order to participate. So if you missed the last two days and want to join in later in the week, go for it! 🙂
