It's like I just got off the runway...or not

Monday, January 17, 2011
This was inspired by the Dries Van Noten Fall 2010 RTW collection....again. I just love this color palette right now even if it has been in the gorgeous 70s lately. If I had walked outside at all today this sweater would have been too much but my workplace is FREEZING. I am starting to think I should wear tights too but that might confuse outside folk.

  1. i just love this! you're making l.a. look all wintery just by wearing this dark, gorgeous color palette and i also love the buttons running down the dress-as-skirt, which i didn't even recognize as your dress.
    gorgeous, versatile, inventive look!

  4. I am so jealous of your warm weather. The weather here is nuts. 5 blocks up, it is sunny, but where I am it is MISTING. WTH!

    I saw similar wedges at Target but they were tan. I really like yours!

  10. You make me wish I lived in California, and not Michigan! Unfortunately, I'm stuck with jeans, coats, sweaters, and boots. It's making me appreciate the sunshine that comes with the summer so much more- and my skirts, dresses, and flip flops. It's making it all the more difficult to wait, though!

  11. I love this! The brooch at the collar is sweet.

  12. You're lucky to be living in the California weather. In Canada it's -35 C... well, where I live. It's insane.

    Lovely outfit, I love the palette in this one. xx

  16. You are too cute. "I wear a bra!!! I'm civil!!" I love the color palette of this outfit - very simple and muted yet chic!

  17. Love the muted tones in this outfit. This weather is insane. But I still wear tights. It just feels weird not to..and besides I'm not ready to bare legs quite yet so I'll just suffer in the heat.

  18. Please post the before-gift-card price because it would be more helpful for us to know that than to read "free". You had to gift up something of value, so it wasn't "free". Make it easy for us to look like you!!!!!!!

  19. I like this outfit, and that you keep stealing your husband's shirts. I say confuse the outside folk and wear tights.

  21. So cute! You made me laugh. I didn't even notice until you pointed out the buttons.

  22. I'd say your version is better than the runway version. Gorgeous look on you. Could totally see it work with tights too, but you're so kind to be worrying about confusing people!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Well. I didn't notice before. But I noticed em NOW! Thanks for the mental image of your real nips. I'm having a brain aneurysm over here trying to erase that now.

  24. Yes RUNWAY ELaine !
    This look is beautiful on you. It is simple,& elegant.

  25. How cute are you? Simple outfit but stylish and you wear it well. Love the colors. Your in-laws must be thrilled that you love the shoes they gave you so much. Mine always gave me hideous gifts! You're lucky.

  26. :) Time to get some new underwear?

    No seriously you look totally put together.

  27. Fabi, they're "free" because I got the gift cards for "free." And I put the exact items in the "Buy:" category and I put similar items you can shop for in the "Shop:" category. So if you had clicked on the links I had provided, you wouldn't need to be complaining, right?

  28. nips! lol, i'm still giggling over that, thank you for the laugh...i'll go start my day now.

    ReplyDelete
  29. aw you're so pretty & I love your shoes! I definitely see the Dries Van Noten inspiration (:

    p.s. be highly thankful that you live somewhere warm right now! I'm up in Minnesota with frozen fingers and a million layers.

  35. lol at the nips/buttons. Olive is huge right now and hopefully for the next could of seasons. I have the same dilemma in the summer with work being freezing. I bought a space heater. it'll solve all your problems, promise! :)(Walmart, $15!)

  36. This is a great look and a great color palette. Very chic and winter esque. Maybe knee socks (for warmth) for the office? I know they're your fave! haha

  37. I LOVE this outfit. It does look straight off the runway. Or on! It's like the sidewalk is the runway. I think I need to go pick up those Target clogs. You make them look AMAZING.

  38. I love it that you are "winterizing" warmer weather in LA and Im trying to "summerize" colder weather in VA. :) beautiful color palette :)
