Black & Gold - Part Two

Worn to church on Sunday. The dress is new, I didn't have a black summer skirt/dress to wear for the funeral so I had to find one. In our small town. Small enough to fit me. In two days' time... I was lucky, though. Found this pretty little thing and it was on sale, too. I had to shorten the straps (a pic of the dress without the cardi some other time, forgot to take one again...) but other than that it was fine. I'm sure I'll wear it again with some brighter tops and cardis.

I'm wearing:

sandals - local shoe shop
dress - local clothes shop
cardi - Wallis
gold skinny belt - H&M
head scarf - Laura Ashley (I told you I quite liked Saturday's styling...)
beaded silk bag - Benetton (my Mum's, it's so pretty)

This cameo brooch/pendant was a present from my husband when our son was born nine years ago. I'd really wanted a cameo and he found this perfect little thing which I adore. I wear it on special occasions as it is quite delicate.

Sorry for the blurry pictures - I took them myself again and the only thing I can actually do is put the camera on the tripod and push the timer button, I haven't got a clue how to improve the quality of the shot, though. I'll have to work on that one...

The sandals are from last year's sales - I bought them at the end of the season and wore them this summer for the first time. They're quite comfortable for walking and the straps are soft enough so they don't give me any blisters.

How do you like our kitties doormat?


Thanks for taking your time!
