When: Wednesday February 23, 2011

Patterned dress: H&M
Blue Motorcycle jacket: Forever XXI
Beige pumps: From this seller on eBay
Off-White Liz Claiborne purse: Borrowed from my mom
Braided necklace: Present from my boyfriend (From Filene's Basement)

Met with an interior decorator that will be remodeling my office and went out with some friends at night to enjoy some delicious hot chocolate and funny conversation.

I love how bold today's color combo is, don't you? Something about this dress always makes me want to pair it with another bold color. I have even paired it with mustard!

I decided to go with this outfit today because I was meeting with an interior decorator and wanted an outfit that personified "me". I like to describe myself as a happy, bold, colorful person and I feel that this outfit demonstrates that. So hopefully the decorator got a feel for my style so that she can decorate my office appropriately.

If you had to wear an outfit that personified "you", what would it be like?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this patterned dress:

  2. That blue jacket is adorable and I love it, but I have to be honest - I think my favorite is with the mustard cardigan! I just LOVE pops of yellow. They make me happy!

    So will we get to see before and after shots of your office?

  7. Loving the royal blue with the dress, super cute and classy! You have a lovely blog :)

  8. I love the bold choice of colors! I don't know how I'd dress if I was trying to personify my style... My mood changes too much!

  9. oh my god! i just saw my friend wearing this dress on her facebook profile pic just yesterday! I'm not sure if they have H&M in Singapore but I really want to get my hands on this dress. Is it an old one? I've looked for it online and it's not there? I love it, it looks lovely! Also, I just want to say that I think you have inspired me to wear more skirts cuz i have an hourglass figure and I'm short. I carry a lot of weight on my chest and thighs/butt area and i find that skirts and dresses tend to camouflage those fatty bits. Thank you so much, Marie. I know you do this as a hobby but I like looking at your amazing collection of dresses/skirts and drool over them. I wish one day I can have as many clothes as you do and wear them as confidently :) You rock!
