New Poll--Dani's Best Look

Here's how this works:

I'll give you pictures of three of the outfits I've worn since last December, along with descriptions. Your job--should you choose to accept it--is to pick the one you think looks best and vote for it in the poll to the right.

Here are the first three:

The red-on-red twofer is by Apt. 9 Woman, found in a thrift store in June 2012; the red-and-white striped skirt is by Chances R, bought at Forman Mills in July 2015; the shoes are Karen Ornament white peeptoe pumps from Payless in March 2015.

The black pin-stripe twofer is by Worthington, found in a thrift shop in January 2012; the black short skirt is from Kmart's Attention line in January 2011; the footwear are Jaclyn Smith "Tisdale" boots, also from Kmart in November 2014.

The rust sweater dress is by Robbie Bee, bought at Ross in November 2014; the shoes are Fioni "Kambridge" orange suede platform pumps from Payless in May 2015.

You have until October 11 to vote.

The Big Announcement

Starting tomorrow, there will be a new poll...one in which I ask you to determine what my best "look" in the past 12 months has been. Details on how it works then.

Starting Wednesday, another new story. The second-place finisher in the survey for stories you all wanted to see sequels to or continuations of was "Stepton High." I had an interesting time trying to figure out what to do with that one. I've done so many stories about Stepton the challenge was to come up with something a bit different...and not to simply do another story about a new student at the high school.

So the new story is called "Stepton High: The New Teacher"--and you'll see the first installment in two days.

September Dressing Twelve--Office Wear

This is such a simple dress, but it always looks great...

The blue rectangle print dress is from Fashion Bug in October 2012; the shoes are Predictions Comfort Plus "Janine" light blue patent pumps from Payless in April 2016. Other accessories are a blue striped bow, black-and-white jewelry, and light blue tights.

And portraits:

One more outfit to go...and then some announcements about things to come.

September Dressing Eleven--Animal Magnetism 2

...or perhaps this could also be "Leg Show 2"?

The white blouse is from Target's Merona line in June 2016; the leopard-print skirt is by Miss Majesty, bought at Fashion Bug in November 2012; the shoes are Dexter "Lynx" mary-janes from Payless in February 2010. Other accessories are a yellow bow, black-and-white jewelry, and black hose. I originally intended to wear a leopard-print blouse, but decided it was too tight.

And some portraits:

Two more outfits to come.
