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).

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?
