40's Style Silky Dress

Today was a pretty winter's day. So I felt like taking my camera and doing some photo shoot in my backyard. Because it has been so cold here in Florida, I haven't had a chance to wear short sleeve dresses in a while. So today was a perfect day to wear my silky black dress from JCPenny's!

One of the best features of this dress is the style and the cut. And although this dress is not vintage, it definitely has that 40's vintage flare, which I absolutely love!

To add a little sparkle to my ensemble, I added my silvery necklace and earrings that I got from Avon!

The best feature of this dress is the empire style top. Here you can appreciate the details of the design. Very couture chic don't you think?

I added my silvery bow belt to the dress. Not too bad looking.

To finish my photo shoot I did a swing. Then I came back inside my house because it started to get cold again.



True Fact: I used to love dancing to the fifties. When I was in my mid 20's I attended a friend's party and I started to dance to the twist. Then all of the sudden I twisted my knee out of the socket. That was the end of my twisting days. When I went to see my doctor he said that he used to see more patient with this problem way back in his days. Now I understand why so many middle age folks are having knee surgery.
