Cinnabar

Navy and white wrap dress, Merona. Coral blouse, Worthington. Brown linen blazer, Forever 21. Brown peeptoe pumps, Antonio Melani. Cinnabar earrings, Into the Fray. Gold watch, Raymond Weil.

I have been obsessed with navy, brown, and coral lately. In fact, I wore this same color combo a few weeks ago.

I purchased these earrings from Ambika’s Etsy shop (along with my corny bracelet). Perhaps it’s an offshoot of my current love of reddish orange, but I find myself hopelessly attracted to cinnabar jewelry.

You are amazing--I would never have thought to put together those colors, but they look terrific on you.

A question--what about vests? I mean real vests, like fitted suit vests, but with a front in tapestry, a pattern, or plain velvet. I have have half a dozen that I used to wear a lot years ago, but never now. They seem dated somehow, like Madonna in the age of Desperately Seeking Susan. What if I wore them in the traditional way--buttoned over a crisp blouse with tailored pants or skirts. I'm of a certain age with a fear of frumpy! Many thanks for your thoughts.

Plain vests are in this season. I've been searching high and low for one I like. I just ordered one from Target, but I have to return it for a smaller size. (I have a freakishly small ribcage.) I hope to have it back and wear it soon!

Oh - and see the latest edition of Lucky (with Keri Russell on the front). They have a whole article on different ways to wear vests (waistcoats).

Amibika has such beautiful jewelry. I need to make a mental note to do some X-mas shopping (and me shopping) at her Etsy site.

Love the short-sleeve over long combo. That's a great way to carry over some of my short-sleeve summer cardigans into winter.

Thanks for the comments on ves--I mean, waistcoats. I'll take a look at Lucky and will pull out my own collection and play with them. Didn't some designer do a whole thing this fall with models dressed like they were in the midst of the French Revolution--maybe they wore waistcoats?
Thanks again, Kisabel
