Black and White Stripes and Layered Sweater Dresses.

Hello. I am making it a point between now and at least the end of next month to wear several of my Sweater Dresses and Sheaths so I will be blogging those here on Wednesdays and sometimes Thursdays. Today I got two Sweater Dresses for you and lots of Stripes which is perfect because I am linking up with Elle and Jacqueline for their Spotlight of the Week which is Stripes, this week.
The only other time I wore this Striped Sweater Dress this year, I layered underneath it with a Fuchsia Plaid Shirt. This time I am layering over it with my Winter White Faux Fur Vest which comes belted. I added some Dainty Long Earrings and a couple of Bracelets, paired it with my Black-Striped Tights (yes, more stripes) and Black Booties and wore this to work one day.
Winter White Faux Fur Vest w/ Elastic Band/Belt Detail & Gold Hardware: Pelinki (similar, great deal), (similar cropped option w/ zippered pockets, best deal, love this), (gorgeous option by MK, on sale).
Light Dangly, Silver-tone Earrings w/ Cubic Zirconia & Black Crystal Beads: White House Black Market  (gorgeous feather option by Maison, on sale, love these), (gorgeous floral option by The Limited, best deal, love these), (fun option by The Limited, great deal).
Black Beaded Bracelet w/ Pearl, Crystal & Coin Charms: White House Black Market (very similar, great deal, love this), (similar, love this), (fun option w/ Domo beads, best deal).
Black Elastic w/ Pave Crystal Mickey Mousse: An Accessories Boutique (New)
Black Metallic Thin Headband w/ Blue/Green Ombre Star Flower: Bijoux & Accessories.
Black, Lightly-Ribbed, See-through Tights: Omsa.

This outfit featuring my Black+Gray Leopard-Print Sweater Dress by Loft was worn a few days later, also to work. I work in a pretty casual environment so business casual or semi-casual outfits definitely work. I mixed Prints here by pairing it with this Open Black+White Striped Cardigan by WHBM. Not to leave the outfit colorless I added some pops of color: Hunter Green Necklace, Orange Tights and Cognac Boots. Which of these 2 Outfits is your favorite?
Black+White Striped, Stretchy Cotton Tank Top w/ Crystal Embellishments: White House Black Market (similar, great deal, love this), (very similar ion gray+black by Loft, on sale, love this), (similar, best deal).

Beaded Drop Earrings w/ 1 Black & 1 Navy Crystal Stones: White House Black Market (similar by Kenneth Cole, great deal), (similar w/ faceted crystals by Kenneth Cole, best deal, love these), (gorgeous option by David Yurman, Splurge).
Black Beaded Bracelet w/ Pearl, Crystal & Coin Charms: White House Black Market (very similar, great deal, love this), (similar, love this), (fun option w/ Domo beads, best deal).

Tall Cognac Boots w/ Chunky Heels & Buckle detail on the top of the shaft: Payless (similar for 11 bucks!! love these), (gorgeous option by Clarks, Splurge), (similar @ Macy's, come in 3 color options, love these).

  9. It's only today that I was thinking that I do not own a fur vest and there goes my lovely ADA styling it so chic . the stripped dress is so versatile and you style it lovely. My favourite is the first one with the fur vest - so polished! Lovely ADA!

  21. That first outfit looks fantastic! The stripes and fur are such a great combo! And the way your vest belts keeps it streamlined, not bulky the way some vests can get.

  22. Both great looks! The pattern mixing on the 2nd outfit is just too fun.
