Cranberry, Leopard and Gray.

Happy March and Happy first Monday of the first month of Spring (supposedly) also. I have been a lot into Burgundy (hmmm Marsala - color of the year) this Winter and its sister shades like Cranberry, Magenta, Cherry, Wine and such. As a matter of fact I am doing an entire week of Marsala next week starting on March 9th. 
Today I am sharing with you this Beautiful Cranberry Sweater Dress (love the detail on the sleeves) from The Limited which I am finally no longer ignoring. That is the problem I run into since I have a million clothes and I forget about 30% of them lol. I simply wore this Sweater Dress with the Leopard-Pink Scarf in Classic Leopard Colors. However the pop of pink from the scarf picks up the red of the dress. I added in some muted colors on the bottom. I have on Blueish-Gray Paisley Tights and Olive Wedge Oxfords. I also kept it simple Jewelry-wise. I mixed+matched my Crystal Long Beaded Necklace with a Crystal Bracelet in lighter colors. Do you own a Sweater Dress in any of the Red or Burgundy shades? I would love to see how you style yours. Below, I found some cute options, also.
Light, Breezy, Viscose-blend Leopard Scarf w/ Large Fuchsia Hearts on the front & Fuchsia Edges: A Random Boutique (very similar), (similar in snow leopard by Echo, love this), (similar, infinity style, best deal, love this).
Long Black Beaded Necklace w/ Crystal Navy & Sky Blue Beads: White House Black Market (similar, on sale, love this), (similar in black+gray, best deal), (this year's option by WHBM, great deal).
Smoke Gray & Skye Blue, Beaded, Crystal Bracelet: Viggos.

Coincidentally, the only time this Dress has been documented on the blog, I have also styled it with some Patterned Gray Tights (Herringbone) and Oxford Shoes (my Black Flat ones). I even tied a Pastel Paisley Scarf that day.

P.S. Linking up with Carylee with Gina, Cherie, Ellen, J., Kristin, Laura, Lauren, Lindsey, Rachel, Rachelle, Rhea, Whitney and Zaz.
Since Cranberry is a Sister Color of Marsala I am also linking up with Jana and Maegen tomorrow for Color of the Year - Marsala, link-up. And one last time linking up with Carrie to wrap up Create 28. This is my Dressy (but not too dressy) look.

  6. For some reason I wouldn't think to put marsala with grey...always with black. I really like it with grey for a softer look, though! I'll have to copy you one of these days!

  13. What a pretty cranberry top! I love that the color of the year is marsala and this is a very close color! :)

  14. This is a gorgeous color on you Ada! The leopard scarf is the perfect finishing touch! I am the same way when it comes to buying clothes. I end up buying a bunch of stuff and then some of it literally sits for a year before I touch it. Although in one respect, it's sort of like discovering a surprise when you finally uncover pieces after years in your closet!
