I hate my outfit today! I knew it would be a long day with a business meeting and then a “semi dressy” function this evening. Ladies, I know you’ve all had this dilemma- what will transition nicely from a day at the office over into the evening for a cocktail party? Aside from packing a whole suitcase of clothes, I did a little sleuthing at Michael’s Crafts store and came up with a few snazzy ribbons and such that I hope will dress up my outfit for evening wear.
I have a flowery, green cardigan sweater that I’m wearing but it doesn’t stay hooked closed with the hook and eye fasteners. My black pants are also falling down and I need a belt! So, here I go, I’m looping a ribbon through the hook and eye fasteners and tying a bow across the front; phew! That works! Next, the pants-an easy fix-cut ribbon the length long enough to use as a belt and tie with a big bow in front-it’s a coordinating shade of green to match my sweater. Another phew! Now, I’m ready for the cocktail party and won’t feel quite as frumpy as I first did!
