Dress Up, Dress DownPosted: June 6, 2011
Another “office-y” outfit. I tried to dress up my cat dress/dress down my pencil skirt by pairing them together, but it’s still chilly here in the morning due to the June Gloom, so I need a jacket. And since the jackets in my Remix List are all blazers (except the floral cardigan and the white safari jacket, neither of which goes with this outfit), I have no other choice but to choose a blazer, which inevitably makes the outfit scream “office worker.” I don’t hate it, it’s just not really my style, that’s all.
Also, I wanted to wear a necklace, but none of my other necklaces goes with this busy print, and I didn’t want to be too match-matchy by wearing the same pendant I did last time I wore this dress, so I went with this bead that my mom gave me. It’s made out of a mammoth tooth! But in the end it might have been a mistake, because the necklace is probably the coolest part of this entire outfit, and it’s completely overwhelmed by the print.
