Remember the post 'Do I have this backwards?' where I started preparing for an outfit to wear to my daughter's wedding with first a knitted shawl and then the jewelry?
Well as time got closer, July 17th to be exact, more folks were getting worried about my preparedness 'What are you going to wear?' I was sure it would sort itself out and this weekend it did.
After two days of visiting with Mom, Grandaughter Sam, a 13 year old wise fashion advisor, accompanied me to Smith Alder in San Jose. Paula who owns Smith Alder and I have a history, I'll tell you another time. The clothes are all of my favorite designs, timeless, classic, eclectic, elegant....I knew I would find what I needed and I did. I already owned a beautiful black Carol Brown skirt with large black taffeta flowers at it's hem, perfect. And at Smith Alder I found a simple pale grey asymmetrical top with a large mandarin neck and a sheen to the fabric. More perfection.
And then! Wandering around Danville, not even considering shoe shoppping I found these!
Hartz and Soles, a shoe store with fashionable and comfortable shoes....unheard of. Aren't they pretty? Now I'm set, well once I finish the shawl, 61 out of 72 inches knit, 13inches to go!
Now I must go to the shipping department! There are kits to be shipped....many of them and some to be kitted and a Beadwork project to be finished and some knitting to be done and some friends to visit. See you all tomorrow!
