I think I've said this before, but it is a rarity that I find a work outfit worth photographing. However, I was pretty pleased with this little number. For whatever reason, my three favorite corporate-friendly cardigans are all Young, Fabulous & Broke (this being one of them). Another is fast disintegrating and I might be forced to do something drastic when it finally bites the bullet. Something drastic like... buy another one. God help us all if no suitable replacement can be found. God help us all.

  18. Gah, don't you hate when a wardrobe staple dies & you're forced to get a new one. This happened to me with my basic black boyfriend cardigan... I was shocked at how hard it was to find a replacement! Also, I absolutely adore this outfit on you! The dress is so pretty, the color is gorgeous, and I love it paired with the stripes! So pretty!

  21. God help us all, indeed. I hate when that happens. I have a couple of staples that probably need to be a replaced but I haven't found anything that even comes close to worthy. I love the dress too. The soft pleating makes it fall perfectly. Gorgeous!

  35. You look so lady-like and pretty! I hope the cardigan makes it! And the dress is a pretty color too, I just got a dress similar to it in hue and I am enamored with it. Of course, I will always be a fan of your Prada pumps, topped with those bows, they are so elegant.

  57. This outfit is fabulous, as are the photographs. I ADORE the dress. Now I am curious what you do for work...I don't know if you've ever mentioned it. I think I get into this mindset where I assume that no one who blogs works (like me...slacker me). ;-)

    But yes, you look fabulous.
