Me Me Me

You guessed it, its my turn.
Jed and I have a dinner Saturday night and I really needed a dress.
Something dressy but not too dressy, you know what I mean-don't you?

So I went with a tried and true favourite.
This time in a black linen.
 The Lisette Portfolio, one of Liesl Gibson's (of oliver+S fame) first woman's patterns.
Its not readily available but you might find it if you are lucky.
My favourite detail is the lovely scooped pockets.
Pocket tute here
The neck line is so flattering.
I do add an inch to the centre front piece for extra bust ease.
Mother-of-pearl buttons for the back closures seemed the perfect touch.
Now, perhaps you would be so good as to help me?
I can't decide what jewellery to wear and I would love your help.
The Twins bought me this necklace on the weekend.
Or my Anniversary pearls.
Which I am leaning towards but the Twins say 'Not'.
What do you think?

  2. I'm with the kids too, sorry. But I guess they must have got their sense of style from somewhere, right?!

  3. Yes go for the twins' necklace, I am sure their delight in seeing you wear it will make it worthwhile :)

    And I have always admired this pattern but never bought it - why oh why does it seem to be out of print?

  4. They hit Equip at Murray Bridge Jane, their favourite store. I was pretty chuffed they spent their hard earned cash on me!

    It is such a shame that it is out of print, I adore it!

  5. Love the necklace they bought you! I'm a big fan of bold necklaces. And this is one pattern/dress I never tire of!

  6. The necklaces really pop on the against the dress, love, love! I don't know why I have not made any more of these for myself yet.

  8. Love the dress. I made one in black linen when the pattern first came out and wore it to death. I agree with E&Z, such stylish little chicks.

  9. I'm going to be contrary and say that I prefer the pearls. Very Chanel.

  10. Perfect dress! I love it in black. I vote pearls:)

  11. The dress is stunning and looks amazing with the pearls (love them and I do wear mines almost on a daily basis), but the twins choice looks more suitable to your "dinner" (I reckon it would be a good "surprise")

  12. Yep. I'm with the twins. As much as I love the "Chanel" look of black and pearls, the new necklace is a bit more casual and "fun" for a night out on the town, I reckon. Love those shoes!

  13. Yep...I'd go with the twins' necklace. You are going to look fab for your date! Enjoy!

  14. I like them both, but the twins necklace really adds pizzazz. Whichever you choose you'll be beautiful.

  15. I agree with Z & E. Their necklace is perfect!

  16. Thank you all so much for your help and lovely comments.

    So far it looks like E&Z's necklace might be the go!
