Bombshell Reject

Jacket, Breakin’ Loose. Dress, Jones New York. Sweater, Body Central. Belt, came with the dress. Tights, Danskin (2 pair!) Lace-up pumps, Isaac Mizrahi for Target. Bag, Payless.


I really wanted to center my Bombshell outfit around this dress. The Lucky Guide to Mastering Any Style shows tons of leopard print on the Bombshell pages, so I felt compelled to use an animal print. I came up with this outfit, but, although I like it, I decided it wasn’t quite Bombshell enough. I hung the entire ensemble on a hanger and put it away for another day. That came in handy this morning.

For a reject, this is a nice outfit. I've always liked that bag too.
Growing out my bangs may be the death of me before it's all over.

I bet it you had changed the accent color from yellow to hot pink, you'd been more bombshell-y!

I don't know how Lucky defines bombshell, but when I think bombshell, I think of something sexier. Like with more cleavage. Gosh that seems strange to say to another woman.

It is a great outfit though!

Cute outfit though! And the bag is gorgeous, just gorgeous...

I think you picked the right outfit for Bombshell. The booty skirt and fur lapel sweater screamed BOMBSHELL. Still, I'm glad you saved this outfit; it's cute in its own right.

when you wear this, do you leave the jacket on all day? or do you take it off to show the sweater?

Blazers never seem very bombshell to me. But this is cute in a prepster sort of way.

Quite striking!

Fab outfit! A cobalt blue belt would be snazzy with this. A cardi or jacket with a faux fur collar would up the bombshell quotient!

You need my zebra stud earrings to go with!

evandine and sara - I added the blazer for warmth...and I did leave it on all day. The outfit actually looked pretty bobmshell without the blazer, but I couldn't stand bare arms.

I just wanted to comment on your lace-up pumps. I went to Target in search of a pair like yours, didn't find them, but did end up with an adorable pair of Mary Jane-type pumps instead. Thanks!
