Burgundy for Fall

H&M marled cardigan, $65 / H&M white top, $24 / Current/Elliott jeans / ECCO mid heel platform pumps / Coach crossbody / Accessorize silver hinged bracelet

A summer wedding in technicolor!

I have been OBSESSED this summer with the combination of Hot Pink and Orange, so when I went to polyvore I found myself wandering into those color schemes.

Not that it isn’t appropriate, of course.  The colors are bright, happy and unabashedly summery.  This outfit is one I would wear to a summer wedding, either day or evening.

The shoes are by Aetrex and have strong arch support.  I have them in black and consider them the type of heels that you could dance the night away in and still walk the next day.

The bracelet is a simple silver heart from Tiffany’s that I’ve had for years.  The shape and design are classic and not overdone.

The bag is a small clutch from Melie Bianco.  I’ve become a total Melie fan-girl; the styles are fun, bright and innovative, the materials are all vegan, and the price point is usually around $100.  This is far preferable to my other favorite, Kate Spade, where the price points are 3-4x that much.

The item I don’t have is the dress, but my obsession with the colors made it an obvious winner.  The shape is terrific (although I might want a wrap to wear with it for evenings), although I almost wish it were from eShakti so I could get cap sleeves on it.

Lace, Polka Dots, Black and White and Yellow

I love black and white.  I would wear a ton of it even if it weren’t in fashion.  So much the better that it is.

I also love yellow, but can’t wear it that close to my face.  However I can fantasize.  If I were to actually wear this outfit I would change out the yellow for hot pink, but in the end it would be a similar effect.  (I just love the look of black and white and yellow and wish I could wear it.)

The shoes are hot as well.  I need to find something similar with some arch support.

1st Day Back of the New Year

I’m toying with this outfit for tomorrow; two small details.  First, the Mary Janes I intend to wear weren’t on polyvore.  They are the Roller RInk Mary Janes from Aerosoles, and have some animal print.  See –>

Second, I’m not sold on the long cardigan – When I get dressed tomorrow morning, we will see if that works or if I want to go with something shorter.

Thoughts?
