My Kind of ‘What I Wore’

(With a few exceptions). Jill Scott will always have a special place in my heart. (“Precious on HBO”) Her wardrobe in “From Retro Glamour to the Librarian Look” is equally endearing and inspiring, except for the shoes.

Wednesday First Outfit

Nicole Miller raspberry and black mini dress. Couldn’t find the match, but this looks like a Jill Scott piece $485

Black heels that wrap around the ankle – Guess (Sandra, $110, sale for $48). Like I said, except for the shoes.

Fishnet stockings about $10; a second layer of sheer stockings underneath about $6. I hope the humidity was really really low.

Total: $611; sale $549

Wednesday Second Outfit

American Apparel leggings, gunmetal with purple splotches $14 to $76, average: $45

Top by Scoop, “flowy charcoal silk and lace V-neck handkerchief.” Close as I could come at $205

Same shoes

Total $250. Day total $861/$799


BCBG pencil skirt nutmeg $178

Sand-colored top with black zebra stripes $50?

Tan cardigan $150?

Total $875
