Wardrobe Capsule Challenge, Days 4 and 5...

Apologies for the delay in posting, but on with the rest of the challenge photos!


Green Sweater: Marshalls?
Gray Cowl Neck Top: NY&Co
Gray Pants: NY&Co
Purple Heels: Vera Wang for Kohl's
Scarf: Laila Rowe
Earrings: NY&Co
Purse: Nine West via Marshalls

I wasn't sure if i liked the scarf as a belt with this outfit, but I received several comments around the office, so it must have been a hit! I initially tried the belt-over-scarf look I saw on S. over at Academichic, but the belt and scarf I had selected for this challenge just didn't work. Rather than force it, I decided to hold off on that experiment until I had the proper tools at my disposal.


Dress: Moda International via swap
Green Button-up: Merona, thrifted
Purple Heels: Vera Wang for Kohl's
Earrings: NY&Co
Purse: Nine West via Marshalls

I spent Thursday evening trying on TONS of combinations. Despite having several outfits planned on paper, the only way to know if they truly work is to actually try them on -- and several on-paper outfits just didn't look right in real life. Added to the fact that I was seriously growing weary of these pieces, I finally settled on this combo. I probably should have worn tights under the dress since (1) my legs are glow-in-the-dark white, and (2) the dress is a bit short on me.
