(Those bright stage lights are no joke.)

The suit was from a few years ago (I linked to when I dressed like Brad Majors for a RHPS Halloween showing). The scalloped silk shirt, I’ve had (in black and white, and in pink*) for even longer. I’m wearing suede round toe block heel pumps from Madewell; .

I found similar pieces for everything at about the same price points below.

OK, great. Cute. But do you know what I really want? Give me a suit in mustard yellow velvet. Give me pink floral jacquard. Give me all the colors and feminine details! How perfect would these be dressed up for holiday parties? Or with a cute tee and flats!?

** I spotted the pink floral suit on and it’s a total match for an outfit I dress my Sim in. Yep. I’m so sad that the pants are sold out in my size.

    You are adorable-what a great memory for your family! thank you for the links – I love a good ankle pant but am struggling to find the right ankle pant/warm boot combo. Your kitchen is also sooo lovely – I love to watch your creativity at work as you are redoing and changing up your pretty Victorian. Thanks for sharing!

    I saw that velvet suit on someone online the other day and LOVED IT! What a statement – both together and when worn separately.

    I love your style posts. :)
