Marsala Cardigan, Marsala Bow Flats and Floral Lace.

This is my fourth outfit for the Marsala week but I have at least another 4 Outfits I have worn recently featuring Burgundy in a way or another, so stay tuned. And thank you to all of you who have complimented my outfits and liked me in Marsala/Wine/Oxblood/Burgundy this week. I have always loved this color and I do like it on me, as well.
I wore this Outfit to work yesterday. But the heater wasn't working so I had my coat and scarf on all day. Unlike America, here in Europe has been pretty chilly this week. Too bad the heater wasn't working because this Outfit is so cute. I am wearing items I had neglected or not worn for ages such as this Sweater Dress (it is a Dress, not a Skirt with a Lace Top), this Ruffled Marsala Cardigan and the Velvet, Bow Ballet Flats. I also wore some New Tights. This outfit is all about textures: the lace over the knit in that dress which looks like a 2-piece, the ruffles on the cardigan and the luscious velvet/velour ballerina flats. This outfit is all about details as well: the matchy floral lace between the top of the dress and my tights (those are gray flower vines printed on the black tights, btw), layering two gold necklaces, a dainty real gold+ruby heart pendant with a pink+red statement necklace (yet adding more floral to this outfit), and last but not least the heart on the purse matching the rest of the burgundy shades and the bows on the flats. I really liked this outfit. It is warm but sophisticated and full of feminine details. I am committed to wear this dress at least a couple more times this Spring. Yes, it is a Sweater Dress but not a heavy one and it has cap sleeves so I can take it into warmer days, also. What do you think?
 Dark Burgundy/Bourdeaux Long-Sleeve, Crew-neck Cardigan w/ Little Ruffles on the front: Piazza Italia (similar by YSL, Splurge, love this), (similar by WHBM, best deal, love this), (similar in v-neck, merino wool option by J.Crew, great deal, love this), (long, grandpa style).
Baby Pink Stone Flower Statement Necklace (w/ Red in the middle): An Accessories Boutique in Tirana (similar, best deal ever, love this), (similar bouquet option, love this), (fun option, great deal, love this), (similar by H&M, fantastic deal).

P.S. I am linking up with Aisha, Annie, Birdie, Dawn, Jalynn, Lauren, Linda, Miriam, Rachel, Tara and Vicki. Also, I am passing on Whitney's Layered Necklaces from this Outfit so I am linking up with her. Finally, I am joining Alex who is doing a Pantone-themed Color Link-up this week here and if you are wearing any of the 10 Spring Colors suggested by Pantone, you should join her, as well!
