Three Is Better Than One

One giant flower brooch is good. Two is better. Three is best.

Vest, Charlotte Russe. Dress, London Times. Peeptoes, NY & Co. Gray rose brooch, Newport News. Red zinnia brooches, self-made. Cuff, Hot Topic.

This is day three of my craziest week of the year. You might have noticed that today is the third day this week I’ve worn a jersey dress, vest, and flats. The combination is my go-to comfort outfit. Things slow down tomorrow and the heels (and waistbands) will return.


I wore the vest with this dress’ twin last July and remembered how comfortable I found the pairing.

You handle the crazy weeks so well with your ensembles. You still look so put together. And I agree, three is definitely best :)

This is the 2nd time you mention previously wearing that vest and both times that you've previously worn it, it looks black. Am I going crazy?? lol! Even the dress looks a different color. Just wondering. :o)

Janni - I'm wearing a turqoise dress today, but its twin is black. The vest is gray with black and silver tartan. Monitors display colors funny sometimes.

I love the idea of a boob bouquet! I wore baby's breath in my hair for my wedding and my dad called it a "hair garden."

Kasmira said...

Such a great look for you. You've made it your own:)

I stumbled upon your blog a month or 2 ago while searching for some fashion how to, and I've frequented it ever since! Your outfits seem so full of thought and always look so beautiful, I could never put outfits together like you do!

I love your color combos :)

I'm sorry- I have to tell you that lately you are looking more and more clownish. I think your "style" has gone way too extreme and that you should really consider scaling back a bit. I was looking at your past posts and goodness, you used to look soooo pretty. I think the red hair made you look ravishing, the blonde hair does nothing for you, it totally washes you out. Please consider going back to some of your old style- some of us really do miss it!
