Wisdom Worth More Than Rubies

How quickly things change, no? Yesterday everything was muted and foggy, today we have clear skies and I'm wearing a glaring combination of black and red. The red gloves really make the growling panther face stand out, don't you agree? I definitely love this dress, but I think I'm going to try to wear a little less black in the near future. I never do to well with intentional dressing because I'm much more instinctive and put on what suits my mood in the morning. Still even though spring is just a dream on the horizon, I'm going to try to introduce more off-beat tones into my wardrobe.

Outfit details:
ASOS cateye sunglasses
Triptych dress
Modcloth gloves (from last year)

  3. It's snowing here as I write this. Big, loose flakes that are blowing quickly, & sideways. If the sun were to shine, it would snow glitter.

    The idea of spring, or even the traces or signs of spring, even in January: quite welcome.

    The way you wear bows is very mature and grown up, which is lovely.

  26. Love this outfit! The gloves are amazingly cute. Somehow this outfit reminds me a really awesome superhero outfit for "Fashion-Cat" Or "Style-Panther". I think I just decided we all need a super hero name. haha.

  35. This is definitely always one of my favorite dresses of yours. And the red gloves with it - perfect! The black collar and the bun and the shades just make it even better. So great!

  36. Mix matching with black and red is always the best. It complement well with your red gloves, red lipstick and hair colour. I totally love your outfit.You look so classic and chic. I just love it.

    I would love to have a pair of gloves same like yours. Where can I purchase that? If you don't mind...

  37. @Sharon, like I state in the post my gloves are from Modcloth. Unfortunately, since I have a pair I haven't been hunting for another pair...so good luck to you looking! Modcloth, Urban Outfitters, & ASOS are usually good places to start.
