The Long and Short of It.
I discovered the "short" piece first and then just a few shirts down the line I found the tunic. I knew instantly they were destined to be together. The 3/4 length sleeves leave just enough room for the "long" piece to show. The pants were also found purely by chance as I wasn't actually looking for black pants, but, hey, you can never have too many pairs.
I excitedly raced to the dressing room tried the whole outfit on and voila! It worked out just as I thought it would. I later threw in a zebra print scarf for a little extra print mixing. I love it when a plan comes together, don't you?
The only drawback to this whole thing is that the jacket was very poorly made. It had all kinds of puckers and tucks sewn into the left sleeve at the arm hole. Perhaps it was a factory second. So I basically had to take the sleeve off, work out the tucks and puckers then reattach. But it was worth the effort. And that my friends, is the long and short of it!

Oh Hey, I almost forgot! I'm going to Thursdays are For Thrifters. I've only passed by, but never went in. I think I'm gonna see some familiar faces. See you there.
Until next post, happy dressing,
