Featured outfits- Amy Palmacci


I wanted to draw the blue out of the dress, so I opted for a navy woven belt and my blue Old Navy cropped cardigan. Then I added brown footless tights that I pulled over each foot so only a little flesh showed; and my new brown shoes from GoJane.Com. I wanted to change up how I wore this blue cardigan, so I wore it underneath the dress instead of over it. The cardigan is opened so I put a brown tank top underneath and was ready to go. I love how such a small change makes such a big difference in an outfit.

This dress came with a gray tie ribbon, but I swamped it out for my new navy vintage wing belt, threw on my navy cardigan, added mustard tights to match the yellow in the belt; and decided on my brown cuff heel shoes to finish the look

I found these great tights at TJ Maxx. They are Betsey Johnson and I just thought they were the coolest thing since slice bread. I love to add fun tights like this to a basic outfit; I feel it gives it a little bit of oomph, but not too over the top.

The dress is a shirt dress, but a little too short for work, so I decided to layer my black swing skirt on top of it and transform this outfit completely. I added, of course, colored tights- this time in orange-y/red, and a elastic black waist belt. I love the double duty of a dress as a top; and I feel much less self-conscious by having the skirt over the dress. Whoever originated this idea was a genius. Genius!!!
