I'm a big fan of separates, you know, tops and bottoms in a variety of colors. I like having three or four pieces and being able to create a wide variety of outfits using those pieces. Of course, I have lots more than three or four pieces but most things go with most everything else.
I have 2 more weddings this year, both in June. My oldest niece gets married June 11th and Jon, from the office, gets married June 25th. While the outfit is created specifically for Carole's wedding, having it for the other two means not spending money on one-shot clothes.
I put the shell back in the closet and stumbled across another shell I have.
On the other hand, it's not like there's going to be overlap in guests at these wedding who might point and say, "Didn't you wear that to Carole's wedding?" I'm not much for dresses so where, after Carole's wedding, am I going to wear a bright green lightweight satin dress, other than two more weddings?
Still I like having options. We'll see. I gotta get through Carole's first and then I can see if I have time to make or shop for anything else.
