Help! Emergency Input Needed

Is this fabric even remotely seasonally appropriate?

It’s a bustier that will be worn with a black taffeta ball skirt and a black satin bolero jacket. I’m trying to dig through my wardrobe and find something to wear to a benefit tomorrow night without shopping, although I will have to purchase the bolero from here. But I figure it’s cheaper than a new outfit. So whaddaya think?

And if I do decide to go with the bustier, could I get away with wearing the black velvet burnout wrap pictured below?

I figure if I’m lying to myself about the appropriateness of white daffodils before Easter, why not break all fashion taboos and wear it with velvet? Sort of a “two-wrongs-might-just-make-a-right” kind of thing. Remember, every dollar I don’t spend is another dollar toward the expense of caring for Adults and Children with Autism.

In the mean-time, I’m off to rehab my old satin shoes.

Does does their grotesque state say something about the general cleanliness of my feet? Or perhaps (as I will choose to believe) that I should be a bit pickier about where I wear them? I wonder what will do the trick? Woollite? Shout? Steel Wool? Off to experiment!

    I am no fashionista. I have nothing to offer except that I love the toe marks and to tell you to GIVE ME MY SHOES BACK!

    Well now I feel like a fashionista, because I have Angie Mizzell’s shoes! Suh-weet! 😉

    You’ll look FAB no matter what you wear. I think we need you to put on what you have and take/post a picture……the best way for me to tell is to see it all together!!

    Daffodils – optimism! Predictions! Pretty! Wear whatever makes you feel good, and enjoy the night :>

    What’s with the daffodils before easter thing? What taboo is that? Jodi you will look beautiful.

    I agree with B but no one will be looking at your feet. They will be too busy eyeballing your decolletage in a bustier!!!

    I too have experienced the yucky shoes from wearing them too long in the wrong place. I have found they clean up nicely with hand sanitizer, which is mostly alcohol anyway, and they end up smelling better too.
    Tip: Not a good idea to wear open toe sandals to a captains meeting the night before a fishing tournament. But I keep making the same mistake.
