More un-February-like weather today, which sadly kills Neil's hopes of a late season wintery storm (his heart is breaking over lack of snow). We took advantage of the afternoon by visiting Belle Meade Plantation and drinking some of their super sweet wine, and I wore this - a vintage black velvet mini dress I found while thrifting last week. It has the best contrast collar and cuffs made from sheer white chiffon. It also happens to be super short, though.. trying to think up creative ways to make it longer without changing its simple shape.
