Layer Slayer


I've now worn a blouse under a dress two days in a row... I guess I'll talk about one of my favourite layering tricks. Wearing a blouse under a sleeveless dress is a great way to transition pieces from one season to the next. The blouse can either dress down a more formal dress or dress up a more casual one. For example, I wore a plaid shirt under a slightly more formal dress yesterday and by doing so, made the dress a tad more casual for daytime. On the other hand, today's look is very dressy. A white and black neck-tie blouse and a black leather dress are both classic elements in their own rights, but by layering them, I gave them a whole new life. It make the dress feel less edgy while the blouse is less stuffy. I really like the end result! I also decided on black burnout tights and red shoes, lips and earrings for added interest. On second thought, I might have been better off with different tights as I feel the outfit is a little too black with this particular pair... I'll know for next time! Today was also the day I broke out the cape and floppy hat! I've been dying to wear my capes again and am happy the weather is finally cooperating. Fall would simply not be complete without an abundance of capes and floppy hats!
