Outfit Of The Day for November 29, 2011. Polka Dots And Fur

November 29, 2011 • Fashion Blog, Outfit Of The Day

I was influenced by Alia’s Seeing Spots article and wore this Rag & Bone polka dot blouse silk blouse today. It has some amazing details. The polka-dots are graduated – they go from small to large. There are also horizontal panels of fabric sewn vertically to form the trumpet sleeves, and a sort of trumpet bodice.  And yes, I can’t stop wearing this Michael Michael Kors Mongolian fur vest. I know it is last year’s trend, but it is also very practical. I wear it in the office when I am freezing and then I wear over a black wool coat when it is really cold for outdoors. I find myself throwing it into my tote bag like it is a sweater!
