WiW: 11.22 - Back from the Abyss!

I got a call from a dry cleaners who had lost my dress last year: well, they found it and were willing to deliver it too! How nice! :) so, I had to team wear this one, especially with pockets!

We are under a snowfall warning again (20 cm expected) but at least this means it will be relatively nice out today. We are back into the plus range tomorrow!

Keep warm, YLF friends!

    Wow, I am glad they found it! Did they charge you for the cleaning? :)

    Love this! The grey frock pairs beautifully with the military-esque jacket. Whoo hoo for found clothes!

    What a nice surprise! The dress is a stunner on you and I'm so happy that it's back where it belongs.

    Looks great. I am glad they found it.

    Wow!  This is such a stunning outfit on you.  Feminine and professional!  I can't believe the dry cleaner lost your dress.  Had they already reimbursed you for it?

    Everytime I come across this silhouette in the stores, I think of how nice it would look on you!  This dress is a great foil for the necklace, too!

    Stay warm!  We might get snow today here in Chicago!

    Yay! So glad you got it back and so nice to see the outfit on you as I just commented on your outfit planning post where I saw it hanging up. I looks just as good as I imagined it would.

    They didn't charge me for cleaning :) And I go reimbursed not a lot. Was unhappy.

    Now I am happy!

    Oh my, a dry cleaner finding a dress a YEAR later? But good for you of course. The outfit is just lovely, you look great!

  • Debra replied 4 years ago

    Wow, glad you got it back, you look lovely :)

    I love happy endings! It's a lovely dress on you and I'm glad they found it. A dry cleaner once lost half of my suit the day before my big interview. So stressful!

  • Parsley replied 4 years ago

    That is wild that they found your dress after so much time. It looks wonderful on you. I love the military jacket, too.

  • Aleta replied 4 years ago

    Great outfit , really love the jacket with the gold buttons, you define the phrase "Signature Style".  Oh dear, now I have heard your story shall worry every time I send something good to the dry cleaners, it's the stuff of nightmares!!

  • E replied 4 years ago

    I can't believe the cleaners lost your dress for over a year! Thank goodness it finally came back. That style of jacket is wonderful on you. :)

  • LACeleste replied 4 years ago

    I love a happy ending!  Looks great on you!

  • donnat replied 4 years ago

    I love this too. Love the pretty dress with the military jacket. The colored necklace adds more interest.

  • minimalist replied 4 years ago

    Love that dress on you, so glad you got it back!

  • Day Vies replied 4 years ago

    I love the jacket and necklace. What a wonderful ending that you go your dress returned (and delivered no less!) I love the girly flare of the skirt and the strict military styling of the jacket and the necklace with it's added color and pattern just makes me happy. YLF!

    This is just perfect on you - the colors keep it from any twee-ness and it's got loads of interesting detail.

  • Sveta replied 4 years ago

    What a happy ending! Of course you look lovely in this dress and I just love the jacket with it.
    Keep warm - we also have a big snowstorm over this weekend. Canadian winter has arrived...

  • dustt replied 4 years ago

    I'd be sad if the cleaners lost anything that looked that great on me!! - so happy for happy endings!!

  • lyn* replied 4 years ago

    Haha. I think they got the stain out too!!

    I am just impressed they bothered to contact me at all!
