The combination of sheer black, draped fabric and lots of lace makes me think of one of my mom’s favorite female vocalists, Stevie Nicks. Though my outfit is a lot less dramatic than her legendary getups, I had Fleetwood Mac stuck in my head all day. It’s not all that uncommon for me – I’m actually quite a fan of their music. For some reason, I get teased a lot for that, but I couldn’t care less.
Since I made this dress up as I went along, I’m now wondering if it was a subconscious influence from my playlist. Sometimes that happens! Either way, I’m very happy with the outcome. I’ve actually worn this dress twice since I made it, in different ways. I just forgot to take a picture of the first one. I’m sure it will be in heavy rotation – I love how comfortable it is. Comfort, believe it or not, is really important to me. It’s the same reason I carry emergency flats in my bag!
