Egyptian Inspired

I was so inspired when I saw this dress/tunic a while back at the thrift store. It reminded me of my trip to Egypt so I quickly grabbed it (for $6.50) and began planning how I was going to wear it. My fiance' and mom both saw it first and both suggested a belt, then my mom said leggings or tights. As usual, they were right ;-) I added my thrifted necklace, that also makes me think of Egypt, and knew that the outfit was complete. I wore some comfy booties I swapped a few weeks back at a clothing swap and added my faux leather (reversible) jacket to top it off.

I think I pulled it off and I can't wait to rock this with some leggings when it gets to be a tad warmer. What do you think; how'd I do?
