A couple of weeks ago one of my favourite fashion bloggers, Jeannie, writer of gracefully50, published a post in which she wore an unbuttoned trench dress as a long jacket over a tight black dress. It made for a unique and classy look but then, I think Jeannie could wear a paper bag and look stylish!

What intrigued me was the realization that I had very similar items hidden away in my own closet. Neither had seen the light of day in a very long time but they were pieces I hesitated to get rid of; the black dress because, after all, every woman is supposed to have a LBD and the other because I’ve always simply loved it.

This afternoon, my daughter and I dressed up and did a photo shoot. I took pictures for her blog post about her latest fabulous thrift store finds and she photographed me in my take on Jeannie’s outfit. I don’t have the funky shoes or the adorable pup to complete the look but here’s my version.


Not only did I love the look but it was amazingly comfortable. Now I just have to decide where to wear it!

    This is perfect! So glad you pulled it out of your closet b/c it looks fabulous! 🙂
    Your daughter’s finds were great, too!
    Thanks for the sweet words and the mention.

      You’re welcome, Jeannie! And thanks again for the inspiration. I feel like I have a brand new outfit and I didn’t have to spend a cent!
