Style Diary: 1 Ann Taylor cardigan, 3ways

To prevent getting bored of my clothes, I’m always challenging myself to never wear the same outfit twice.  So similar to other posts on how to wear   1shirt, 3ways,  1dress, 3ways     1zara skirt, 3ways  and most recently, 1 red skirt 5ways, here is 1 Ann Taylor cardigan 3 ways!

I love the contrast grey sparkle trim which to me, made the chocolate cardigan from Ann Taylor worth the buy.   Here I wore it for work with a shiny dress by Averly that I bought at Lord & Taylor last year.  I cinched it with an old Gucci belt and wore some edgy heels by Fergie to set the whole conservative look off.

This disco ball of a dress is by Calvin Klein – found for a steal at Marshall’s.  the tights and bracelet are from Ann Taylor loft and the shoes are Miss Sixty – I love the exposed zipper detail in the back.  The fur detachable coat that I wrote about here is by Tibi from Saks and the purse is Prada from Saks.

My 3rd and final outfit for work is the same Ann Taylor cardigan this time worn over the only Anna Sui item I own, a tweed dress bought at Target.  I accessorized the look with my fur purse written about here a Kate Spade necklace that my husband surprised me with and my heels bought from Saks.

What’s your favorite outfit?

Style Diary: 1 Shirt, 3 ways

In this post, I’ll show you how I styled this black lace blouse from Zara – a purchase I had made over 5 years ago.

Today I wore the blouse with my new Zara tweed blazer.  It hardly shows in the pictures but the blazer has a slight sheen to it since the thread is a bit metallic.  Going for the Chanel-inspired look, I wore my chain necklace, leather skirt and Chanel chain purse.  I ran our store’s trunk shows, partnership with a local gym, champagne reception and live DJ during a series of work events in this outfit.

I’m also thinking about wearing it next with my DKNY, exposed zipper dress shown here.  Worn as an underpinning, I layered it with this sheath dress, while using the same necklace, shoes and purse for a completely different look.

Lastly, the bouse is worn under my bold striped blazer and pants from Bebe.  The Rebecca Minkoff purse was free. Yes FREE!!  My fabulous co-worker gave it to me – apparently it was a gift from the corporate summit he attended.  Only in fashion do you walk away with gifts this amazing!
