My closet: An elegant '70s Oscar de la Renta. So lovely. April 30, 2014 23:39


Isn't this dress yummy? My mother made one for me years ago, and I wanted another. My sewing teacher said it was beyond my skills, so she made it for me. (Bless you, Leslie!) I wore it to a writer's conference this weekend and to dinner at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs in the shadow of lovely Pike's Peak. The dress drew a shipload of compliments.

We used a tightly woven slate blue silk crepe de chine. I wore it with a 3-inch-wide covered belt made by lovely Pat in California. I was a very happy traveler. Indeed. I cant wait to wear it again.
