There’s not much resemblance between Dame Helen and me, but I did love her Academy Awards gown (see my post about it here). I admire her apparent grace, great posture and air of confidence. Those are available for all of us on any given day, so today I am channeling Dame Helen. On a tiny budget. In Melbourne, Florida.

This knit ombre maxi dress by Go Couture was thrifted at the Molly Mutt for about $4. It’s soft and easy to wear, and makes me stand up straight. I added a vintage silver brooch at the waist, but I had no access to the sapphire/diamond necklace Helen wore on the red carpet.
The vintage green bangle is good for a shot of bright color. Then I was ready for the
red carpet pizza parlor down the block.
Now, let’s see what’s in your closet, Visible Women.
