Outfit Post (First One!)

Having tipped my toe in the water here and found it warm, I'm diving in.  Hope there are no sharks!

Okay... here goes... (deep breath)

I decided to show you, for my first outfit, a colorful new dress I bought.  At least that's what I thought when I saw it in the catalog.  When I received and tried the dress on, though, it seemed flat.  Shapeless.  That's when the education I've gotten from you guys kicked in and I realized the outfit simply needed a belt.  Something to give shape to the dress.

Luckily, I had a belt in my drawer that matches the dress perfectly.  How great is that?!  Must be fate.

I experimented with two different necklaces, one bought for this dress and another I had lying around.  Surprisingly the spare one looks better than the one I handpicked.  You never know with these things until you try them.  Perhaps if I could have worn the dress to the jewelry store, I'd have had a better chance at selecting something.

Here are the photos.  Click to enlarge them.

I bought a pair of white shoes for the dress but, sadly, they didn't look good with it. So I went to my old reliable -- classic black pumps -- and they came through.  I'm not sure why but these heels look good with almost everything, so you'll see a lot of them in my posts.

The background of the photos is my newly-renovated kitchen.  I haven't seen any other blogger shoot pictures in her kitchen, so I guess I'm breaking new ground.  The reason for the location is it's the prettiest area in my house.

I will, however, show you another area -- my new living room couch.  This is how I look when I'm relaxing...
