I’ve worn this dress in a previous outfit post (here), and it’s one of my favorites. There’s quite a bit of subtle mixing going on here: the dress is made of a sweatshirt material, the shirt is sheer (I love the layered pan collar), the tights have a textured pattern and the boots are suede. It was only fitting that the bag had some opposing patterns to it as well. This is my first Bodhi purse, and I got it for such a great deal at DSW (it retails for $298, but I got it for only $41). I think the total cost for the outfit is about $150, including the shoes and bag. Someone asked me once how I shop, if I do it by outfit or by bits and pieces. I pick a lot of great standout pieces that I want to showcase, but I also shop for great basics that will integrate well with everything else in my wardrobe, making the cost stretch even more. My wardrobe is definitely a mixed bag, but I think that’s my style.
Outfit – Juicy Couture dress; Bisou Bisou shirt from JCPenney; Hanes argyle textured tights; Bodhi New Layfayette purse; Nine West booties; Lucky Brand glasses; Kelly Evans Designs vintage button ring; Suki Bijoux vintage typewriter ring
