How to wear Avant-Garde to a potluck…

Avant-Garde – Day 7

Congrats!  cmajernik!  You won the Kate Spade purse!

And, as far as Avant-garde is going for me, pretty good, although I’m quickly running out of pants because this look needs a lot of dry cleaning.  I was forced into jeans yesterday  —

I am pleased to say that no, no they do not.
