As many people do, I browse through magazines when I am waiting in line at the supermarket Most choose to check out the tabloids, but I go right to the fashion rags. The December issue of Vogue has a great spread of Dickens inspired fashion. I couldn't wait to go home and design my own version using what I already had in my closet. I reconstructed this pinstripe suit by shortening the legs and adding eyelet ruffles to the bottoms. The day before during one of my regular thrift store junkets, I had picked up the plaid cumberbund and bow tie, never worn, in their original box. Since I am a lover of all things red plaid, I already had the hat and bag in my collection. The striped button down shirt and black ankle boots completed the outfit for me. But was I all dressed up with no place to go? Heck, no! Jeffrey and I had a lovely night out in Cape May attending an art coop holiday gift fair and going for drinks at the beautiful and cozy bar at Congress Hall. Even a night out in little old Cape May can be divine when you are wearing the right outfit!
