When: Wednesday June 9, 2010

Orange dress: ? (Panama)
Gray striped cardi: Christmas present from my parents
Black belt: El Costo (Panama)
Black pumps: ? (Panama)
Black Liz Claiborne purse: TJ Max

Where: I had to write essay papers all day for my summer class... boring I know, but at least I got several of them out of the way!

I am very happy with today's outfit because I got to wear a whole lot of items that need to be used more often! I didn't think I would like this color combo, but I was surprised at how good orange and gray look together (did you know about this color combo!?!? because I didn't!).

I also love how the outfit has very subtle rough items that contrast against the rest of the feminine look... items like this crazy necklace and the studded belt. They both really add personality and interest to the entire outfit!

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this gray cardi:

Note: I didn't notice until now but both of these outfits are very very similar! jajaja what a coincidence :)


  1. Your necklace is absolutely fantastic and love the mix of colors and textures going on here!

  2. I love that wrap. Really adds a different texture to the dress.

  3. we *love* this look! The cardigan is a great untraditional compliment to the dress, and cinching it all together with that fabulous belt is absolutely delicious! we have a fashion/style/inventory blog for the high-end consignment store that we run in Atlanta, GA. We'd really like to repost pictures of this outfit on our blog if it's okay with you! and a link exchange... perhaps? I hope you'll check us out:, and then say yes! :)

  4. Well the subtle gray colored cardigan is such a wonderful combo with the bright orange dress. It gives the outfit a stylish modern look. Love the jewelry as well. It was always one of my favorite ones on you. So modern and way out there. Glad you are getting more use out of it.

  5. This outfit makes me really happy. I love how those stripes are vertical instead of the traditional horizontal, and also how you put it on top of such a bright color! You are gorgeous. :)

  6. I love your cardi-vest, it's sooo cute!
    and I love your hair! oh my god, I wish mine would do that!

    Chic on the Cheap

  7. I agree with LyddieGal. My focus went to how pretty your hair is. Plus it adds to your ouftit. I really enjoy your subtle confirmation of combinations..your necklace red and black pieces to combine with the outfit. jgm
