Leatherette and fake fur.

This outfit was for a 70th birthday celebration at a smart hotel. It’s no secret that I like to dress up but I forgot to pack my tights so had to improvise. It was too cold for bare legs so I rolled up the dress and tucked it into my trouser waistband, threw on a jacket and off I went. The juxtaposition of textures was fun. The soft (fake) fur against the supple duchesse satin, contrasted with the tough leatherette jeans, sequin clutch and metallic courts = party ready.
