Reality vs. Fantasy 4/28: Roses & Thorns

I thought it would be fun to try Angie's Reality vs. Fantasy challenge. As it turned out, my reality is not all that different from my fantasy! I wore outfit 1-2 to work, with a cardigan and comfy black sandals. I chose the bracelet and necklace to represent thorns to match the roses on the dress (I love themes!). The fantasy outfit is the same, minus the cardigan and adding edgy Rockstud-like pumps, maybe to go out on a date night with DH. DD came waltzing in and wanted to be my date for the night! How could I say no?

    Yay!  You're back!  I was hoping you'd do this challenge.  I have the Ollies too in two colors - they are my going-out shoes.  :)

    You're fortunate to have a Reality Style based on your Fastasy Style, Natalie. Another killer rendition.
