One of my favorite collections for Fall '09 was Matthew Williamson.  In a sea of black and gray, it was so refreshing to see near-blinding use of color for Fall and Winter.  Anyway, this outfit was spawned out of that thought.  This outfit was actually from last weekend, so I'm a little behind.  My friends and I had a fun girls dinner at Busboys and Poets before meeting the boys at Stoney's.  Good times.

Missoni cardigan
H&M dress
American Apparel tights
Mellow Yellow shoes
H&M scarf
Bally bag

PS Saints are going to the Superbowl! Yayah!

Thanks so much for leaving a comment on my blog. That's so sweet of you. I've been to Busboys and Poets once, and have since then become a vegetarian. I'm dying to go back and try their veggie options!

I love this color/ pieces combination! It's great!

If you can pull of this, you can pull of yellow. Also remember there are tons of shades of yellow. From mustards hues to dull pale hues to bright hues to neon (barf) hues. I used to be so intimidated by yellow and thus I defeated it (drama! ha!). So I say you should give it a whirl ;)!

I'm really happy to have encountered your blog that I've already added you to my blog roll -- mainly because you're in DC and I used to live there. NOW when people try to tell me that there's no style in DC, I will simply send them over to you as proof. : ) <3

such a gorgeous sweater!! and i love how it matches your shoes! :D

princesspolitico said...

how do you do it? it looks like your sweater, bag, tights and shoes were all crafted especially for you by some phantom master color & texture coordinator. the playfulness between navy, rust and orange are gorgeous and compliment your hair color wonderfully as well :)

xo.
