Faking a Black Sweater Dress and Adding a Blazer.

First of all, this Outfit is not ancient. just a couple of weeks old. After all, I only took my Christmas tree down a week ago. I figured since this week has been the week where I have shown Sweater Dresses on the blog (examples 1 and 2) I might as well show you a third one. =)
Except, this is not a Black Sweater Dress but (once again) I faked a Black Sweater Dress by pairing a Black Skirt with a Black Sweater. I wore my Cranberry (they are calling it Marsala in 2015 - Pantone's Color of the year) Corduroy Blazer. To match the Blazer, I have a little bit more Marsala Color in my Plaid Tights. I paired them with my Gray OTK Boots, added a Silver Bobble Necklace and I was off to work on a cold Winter day. What do you think?
Black, Seamless, Nylon-Stretch Camisole: White House Black Market (identical, this year's version by WHBM), (similar w/ ruching by WHBM, best deal), (similar, Tibi's signature silk cami).
1 Gray Pearl+ Silver Stone Stretchy Bracelet & 1 Purple Metallic Pearl + Silver Stone Stretchy Bracelet: American Fashion & Jewelry Boutique.
Taupe-Charcoal, Over-the-Knee Boots: Purchased in Tirana (very similar by Nine West, on sale, love these), (similar, best deal), (similar in Cognac, love these).

  6. I love the detailing on your sweater! Isn't it funny now many names there are for burgundy?! Cranberry, oxblood, marsala, wine, etc. I never know what to call it!

  15. Hi Ada, I adore your ability of mixing and styling all sorts of colors beautifully. What I like most about this look is the shade of red, which is perfect for winter.
