OOTD-Fancy Up the Day

I thought I would tackle another difficult cardigan and break out this little flowered number. The floral print and neckline make it a challenge, but I just had to get it that one day in Last Call because it was something different and it was from Marc Jacobs. How could I say no thanks to one of my favorite designers? Instead of going the regular cardigan route, I thought I would make it more of a top instead. It worked perfectly.

Did you guys see my new arm bling?? This is definitely not my standard simple bracelet but I was inspired to buy it after seeing a picture in a magazine of a model wearing a lady-like outfit complete with high leather gloves and two fabulous diamond bracelets that were nothing but bling. It was all very Mad Men-esque mixed with a lady who wears nothing less than diamonds. That's certainly not for my everyday life, but a girl can dream a little.

Do you love that we live in a more casual dress society or do you ever wish people would dress up more often like in the olden days?

  1. i like to dress up,it just makes me feel better.
    most of the time i feel overdressed.the area where i live is very casual and since i am awlays in heels(i am 5f 2") already makes me stand out.
