Hey, everyone! Thanks to everyone who voted last week! I just took a final look at the results and it seems the cropped ruffle jacket won; however, when I checked Tuesday morning, the striped jersey dress had a slight lead so I went with that instead.
I am a sucker for suggestions though, so next week I’ll wear the ruffle jacket five ways. (A silk fuschia uneven hem blouse has been selected for this week because I discovered it this weekend still with tags on it!!! I purchased it several months ago.)
But, I’m getting ahead of myself! Here’s how I wore my striped jersey dress last week:
I was confused on this day. I think a lot of it had to do with that fact that our flight from Mexico arrived at JFK at 11pm the night before. I woke up in a daze, put an outfit together, and hoped for reader guidance. I am wearing a striped jersey dress, cropped ruffle jacket, plain black leggings, a chunky bib necklace, and black espadrilles. It’s sort of a sporty-Americana look.
It was cold on Tuesday so I added a black turtleneck under the jersey dress and a chunky bib necklace over it. I didn’t want to look too cutesy so I finished the look with my open-toe black knee high boots. I really liked this outfit — it felt original and creative.
I loved wearing my open-toe black knee high boots so much on Tuesday that I created an outfit around them for Wednesday. It was still a little chilly so I added jeans and a black cropped blazer to the jersey dress. Oh, and of course some Chamak bracelet action and a lovely printed Kowboys scarf!
On Thursday, I went with a “groupie” or band look. I added a sequin vest to my jersey dress and classed it all up with a Fendi skinny belt and basic black Louboutins. Oh, and again, I added a couple of Chamak bracelets because as far as I’m concerned, you can never have enough bling!
Friday ended up looking a bit Betty-Draper-Patriotic, no? Of course, it was completely inadvertent at the time, but I suppose I finally caved to the red, white & blue stripes. To the jersey dress, I added a cream button-front shirt – which I buttoned half way and then knotted — and tan Louboutins I bought last summer. These shoes are great, i.e., super comfy because of the thick platform up front. Plus, they make me so tall!
Since so many of you responded to last week’s poll, I’ve got another one for you…
Have a fashionable week and see you next week!
