  1. A false shirtfront.
  2. A folding outside seat at the back of a vehicle; a rumble seat.

While a rumble seat sounds like tons of fun, today’s outfit centers around the first definition.

I’ve had this sweater for a while, but I really wanted to wear it with another shirt layered underneath.  Unfortunately, this sweater is rather thin, so it just wound up looking bulky and weird. Fortunately, I had a eureka moment and remembered an old standby from my days in grade school: the dickey!  At first I wondered if they even sold those things anymore.  A brief web search pulled up some doozies (and elicited some horrified looks from my husband), but my perseverance paid off when I finally settled on this lace-collared number from Forever 21.  I’ll admit, when I first put it on, I immediately recognized that it wasn’t the sexiest thing in the world.  But once I put my sweater on over it, I was pretty much sold.

Stay tuned tomorrow as I further my descent into granny-chic territory by extolling the virtues of pantyhose.
