Yellow rules

Continuing with the yellow and black combo today.   

Yellow top: Theory

Belt: Reiss

Skirt: Banana Republic

Shoes: Bally

Cat looking on: Jazz


First time wearing these Bally pumps.  I had the heels cut by the shoe repair already (a good shoe repair person can tell you how much to be cut without losing the balance of the shoes).  Bally shoes are great and they are relatively comfy for this height.


Black dress – Yellow belt

Leave a comment

This is my first and only Jcrew dress.  It’s a black light wool dress with short sleeves.  The bright yellow belt is a new purchase from my July 4th weekend shopping (from Sisley).  I went for this dress today because it is hassel free (classic shape, one piece and it’s black).  The back of the dress are closed with buttons rather than a zipper, which gives off a vintage feel.  The belt adds color and life IMO.  As you can tell, I’m really into belts these days.  IMG_2055IMG_2044

Yellow also looks great against gray or navy.


Tuesday blues

This is the I have nothing to wear day.   I kept changing tops but nothing seems to fit my mood. Tango looked on from the doorway, puzzled and bored at the same time…

This is what I settled on.

  • Blue top: Theory
  • Scarf: Ralph Lauren
  • Pants: Cynthia Steffie
  • Shoes: Hugo Boss


It was a bit chilly just wearing this in the office.  I purchased this Banana Republic cardigan (silk / cotton/viscose blend) that could go well with this outfit.  

I can also make this an all – season outfit by pairing it with a black wool jacket with mandarin collar from Banana Republic a couple of season ago.

Wrap or no wrap

This is what I wore on Tuesday and I have to say I was not really thrilled.  The wrap did not fit perfectly and the cami had too much showing.  These are the things I do not want to worry about.  Will donate the wrap top and look for something else to pair with this skirt (could be as simple as a white shirt with a belt?)

  • Wrap top: Esprit
  • Purple Skirt: Hugo Boss
  • Scarf: Emlio Pucci
  • Pumps: Barneys Coop

Excuse to purchase: a wide patent belt (black most likely); a printed top with a purple/violet tone.

P.s.: bought the black patent belt from Reiss; hold off buying the top because either a white blouse could do or I may already have something in my closet that could also work.
