I picked this up on clearance at JC Penney, but had to take it in for tailoring, of course. I still feel like the waist is a bit big. Your thoughts?
See what I mean?
I'm also wondering whether I should baste down some of the pleats on the back... just enough to keep them from sticking out too much.
Hair and accessories... fail. I love this necklace and earrings, but the necklace doesn't work with this top as well as I hoped:
(Curses! I thought I had a stored pic, but I don't see one in my photobucket! It's the same necklace in the header photo)
The earrings went OK, though:
I couldn't figure out if the jacket is black-and-white, or if it "reads" gray. Because I want to wear it with my navy pants, I puzzled on this. I decided to take my cue from the buttons and lining, which are gray. Good call?

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.
