Adrien: A Vast Improvement.

That last outfit wasn' finest work. I decided to try a little bit harder and dress like an adult who hasn't completely given up. Here's what I came up with:

This is a leopard sheath dress from Ann Taylor that I've had for years. It's a favorite! I wish they still made this style but I guess this one is the most similar they have right now but it's pretty boring. This Ann Klein leopard print sheath is nicely work appropriate and this fit-and-flare leopard dress is so pretty! And hey, you can't go wrong with a crazy DVF print dress. And, if you're a size 8, please buy this dress. I dig it.

I threw on an old open cardigan and wish I'd taken the time to straighten it out. It's a cheapy from Marshalls but this Splendid version would be a nice upgrade. This one at Last Call is pretty similar (and the price is great) and I love this sheer open cardigan at LOFT. The back on mine has a fun detail:

More details! I'm wearing my gold scarab necklace from BR. This similar Melinda Maria necklace is really striking and this Jules Smith beetle pendant is also gorgeous. Oh! There's also a new Lulu Frost scarab ring on the TJ Maxx site. So obsessed with that website. 

My ring is Alexis Bittar (from the Box of Style) and my bracelet is an old one I stole from my mother. It falls off a lot. My Cambridge Satchel bag matches my dress in a way too subtle to capture with my bad photography, but the black spots are actually black and reddish brown, so it works IRL. 

Here's the part where I torture you with yet another pair of eBay-purchased Chie Mihara sandals:

I love the bright orange trim and the round heel! I'm big on eBay for finding older CM styles - I'd buy this pair in a second if I was a size 9 and this pair of size 9.5 mary janes are hurting my feelings. And purple suede pumps in size 8? Save me from myself. For new Chie styles definitely keep an eye on Yoox! They have good deals, though limited sizing.

That's it! I'm really hoping the weather turns soon so I can wear some more summery stuff. Fingers crossed...


  1. Cool- liking those orange-trimmed pumps! BTW- because you are a wearer of cardigans- get some sheer ones- they are indispensable workhorses in a wardrobe in my opinion- they go with everything, and if find the right cut they are elegant/sexy, never dowdy- and they weigh as much as a handkerchief so ideal for always having with you. Uniqlo has great ones at the moment- I just got pale grey one that I'm so happy about because it was the missing link in my wardrobe. here, a link- (size up if you want a drapier fit)

    1. Ooh, thanks! I don't have a Uniqlo store here, so I never know what's good or how it fits. I'll check that out!
