Victoria and Belle


Victoria and Belle by FFM

I absolutely love this color combination...it is so visually stunning IRL! I just purchased the boots...they are due to arrive today, and I will give my review once they do. The Cardgian is optional...the Maggie Jacket in Camel works as a substitute for the cardi, as well.

*Update on the boots: I received them yesterday, and unfortunately feel they are a *miss* for me, so they are going back. They are extra wide in the calf area, and even though I require wide-calf or stretchy boots due to having muscular calves...they were simply even too wide for me. They made me feel as if I looked like a pirate when the wide calf was combined with the ruching, top cuff, and tie at the back. Good thing I ordered from Endless.com, so my return shipping is also FREE!!!

  2. Thanks jcrewjunkie! I want to let you know that the Bright Blue Jackie Cardigan is absolutely beautiful with the Fuschia Victoria and stone colored pants, and the Honey Glaze Jackie Cardigan works, too. :)

  3. I really like your sets FFM. I don't know where you find the time but glad you do. Glad you offered other colors of cardigans b/c the brown just isn't doing it for me in this particular set:)

  4. FFM This looks great! I have the belle skirt in the royal blue, and I think it looks too "spring" I wore it with a white button down and yellow flats with a red belt. Can you make it look like a fall skirt?

  5. Ooh, nice color combo, FFM! Do you think I could accomplish the same color balance with the chocolate Trouser Cord Skirt and the Honey Glaze Jackie cardigan?

    Thanks again for another great ensemble, and thanks for your opinion on using these other pieces!

  7. Hi FSW! I think the Chocolate Cord Skirt and Honey Glaze Jackie would look beautiful, as well. :)

  8. Love this. My buttercup belle just arrived yesterday. I managed to snag it when it came back in the online sale. I have it in blue and love the comfortable, yet classic feel. (and pockets!!)

    Thanks for giving more suggestions to pair it with. I truly would have never thought to pair with pink.

  9. FFM ~ I always love your combinations and am super excited that you started this blog. It gives me yet another reason to procrastinate!

    I have a request. I have the Victoria cami in cream. I thought it would be so easy to find things to wear it with, but have yet to find any combos I love (short of just wearing a cardi over it). Any suggestions for how to wear it (causal or work)?
