Hello! Just a quick Fashion Over Fifty post to show you what I wore for the Christmas Service at our church. I had to sing for the service, so I wanted something a bit more dressy. At first, I was just going to wear the standard red blouse/black pants ensemble, but it seemed to casual for a Christmas Service, so I pulled out this very old, never worn before brocade skirt. My daughter actually picked this skirt up at a thrift store but it's a very tiny size two and she couldn't squeeze into it. We are about the same weight, but were proportioned very differently, so she gave it to me to wear. If I put a girdle on and sucked in my gut, I could zip it up; as long as I didn't breathe all day, I was fine. Anyway, besides the discomfort I also never wore the skirt because I felt it was too short….especially for church. But my daughter gave me a helpful hint: if skirts seem to short for my comfort level: wear them with coordinating tights. So I put black tights underneath the skirt, and I felt fine about it.
HERE. My jewelry was a long silver chain and clear bead necklace, a chunky clear beaded bracelet, and some silver angel earrings that a friend from work gave me for Chrismas. For shoes, I wore simple black flats with a black velvet bow. They didn't photograph well because of the black tights, you might be able to see them better in the mustard skirt post I linked to.
