Layering a Sweater Dress with a Puffer Vest and a Scarf.

It was December 2011 when I purchased this Dress, my first time shopping at London Girl Boutique (and one of my first things I bought when I moved to Albania). It was hanging by itself waiting for its owner. I tried it on and took it home, where (little did I know) it would of become a closet staple for 3 Winters in a row. I would even wear it while Pregnant. As a matter of fact I have worn it more in real life than what it has been photographed and showed on the blog. First time ever I styled it with a Scarf also (my Taupe/Floral Triangle, Tassel Scarf) and mixed it with Purple (see the photo below). Today I also wore a Scarf with it and paired it with Purple. This Dress actually looks great styled with a Scarf over it. Here are 1 and 2 ways I have already styled this Dress, this Winter.
This time I stayed within the Blue family and Pattern-mixed it with some Python Tights that I didn't want to regret any longer (last worn here), my Lavender+Baby Blue Paisley Scarf and even added my Turquoise/Teal Puffer Vest. My Earrings & Headband match the Vest perfectly, no? This baby (the dress) kept me warm and comfy, of course the layers helped as did the Tall Boots. What do you think? Would you layer a Puffer Vest over a Sweater Dress like I did? What about all the Pattern-mixing? Also, I apologize for not having the prettiest backgrounds and Vivian's toys & stuff almost always being on the way but I got to make the most of our 800 square feet apartment. That is how it feels to live down-town the capital city of Albania.
And this is how I layered it ladies: 1. Just the Dress. 2. Adding the Scarf. 3. Adding the Vest.
