Artsy Grays with a Side of Strawberry and Dots, plus a Bow.

So, today's No Longer Neglected item is this Artsy Leopard Gray Sweater Dress (which I love). I don't know why I didn't wear it at all last Winter. It got lost in my closet that's why. I have worn this Dress more than once (I am pretty sure I have) but the last and only time it made it to the blog was here paired with the same Oxford Shoes, Dark Tights and also a (different) Leopard Scarf. Today - besides doubling the Leopard through my Infinity Scarf - I added 2 more patterns. The Turtleneck I layered underneath has Polka Dots and the Grayish-Blue (or are they Blueish-Gray) Tights that I purchased last month have a Fun Swirly Pattern. Since this look is mostly dark, the Strawberry Red Top is the right bright spot to make it a little more cheery. I layered a couple of Beaded Bracelets and added a Fun Flower Cocktail Ring, as well as my Gold Bow Necklace. What do you think of the end results?



Royal Blue Beaded Long Necklace w/ Sparkly, Silver Fireball Stones (wrapped as a Bracelet): A Local Accessories Boutique.
Silver, Crystal Stretchy Bracelet: White House Black Market.
Gold Band & Gold+Diamond Ring: My Wedding & Engagement Rings. (In case you wonder why I keep them on my middle finger, is because since when I was Pregnant, my fingers thinned out, so they don't fit on the ring finger anymore. I haven't gotten around to re-sizing them.)
Black Metallic, Stretchy Cocktail Ring w/ large White Flower: Payless.


Black & Gray, Light Wool, Short-Sleeve, Leopard Sweater Dress: Ann Taylor Loft.
Strawberry Red, Cotton-Stretch Turtleneck w/ Tiny White Polka Dots: Koton.
Red, Black & Brown, Light Linen, Leopard Infinity Scarf: The Limited.
Gold, Woven Chain, Long Necklace w/ Intricate Bow w/ Crystals: c/o a Local Boutique (New).
Blueish-Gray, Swirl-Patterned Tights: Pompea (New).

P.S. Linking today with Sarah, Agi, Tara, Erin and Meghan w/ Bethany.

  2. I wish I could mix this many patterns! I don't think I could pull it off--but you've given me inspiration that's for sure!

    1. Thanks Susan. I have been trying tees under sweater dresses this year. They work for warmth and style-wise. Enjoy your weekend!
