Saturday night, Hubby and I went to see Squeaky's husband in a community theater play. I broke out my new top I scooped up for $2 out-of-pocket after applying a $10 coupon:
I stitched the fold over the bust into place so that it doesn't gape, and basted the darts in the bust into place as well. Then I added the elastic belt from an old pair of pants that are too small for me at the moment.
I also just picked up the "ponte knit" pants at Lane Bryant on clearance for $10. They are so comfortable, and drape well rather than nip in at the knee like most of my pants do... I hate that!
I wondered whether I shoould try to accessorize with color, but Hubby liked these earrings best:
Add the vintage evening bag, white hair flower, and red lips for the only spot of color, and I'm all set for date night!
After the play, we went (late, but I called ahead) to a girlfriend's birthday party at the pub. All in all, a really nice evening.

Edited to add: Drat! I didn't realize until I saw Bella's comment that I didn't paste in the pic of the bag:
FYI: I was doing this entire blog from my Android phone, snatching moments out of my busy life for quick photos. But I hate auto-correct with a purple passion, so now I'm using the computer for most of the work. I am still using my phone for the photos, though. My photo sizes may be erratic, and the quality isn't stellar. I am not a professional blogger, and do not have time for lots of scenic poses with a great camera. I don't even own a great camera! However, I DO appreciate your continued feedback, even in the absence of photographic artistry.
