The Cardigan is worn buttoned over the Silky Jersey Pleated top. My cardigan is actually from Target, and is so soft and great quality, too. My shoes are similar to the pair in the set, but not the exact item. I've wrapped my pearls 4 times around my neck, and *knotted* the Twisted Crystal necklace at the bottom. (Thanks to lcsmom for the idea! :)

  2. Help! I have a dinner party to attend on Saturday night. I need some advice on how to wear my chiffon sequin tank in putty with the gold metallic lulu peep toe heels. Can they be put together? I have a velvet ecole in navy and burgandy. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

  4. Hi anon@4:55! My pearls are the KJL 72" Endless Simulated Pearl necklace seen Here as well as Here . They are more cream colored than white if that makes a difference. :)

  5. Hi Gwen! I think the Sequin shell and lulu metallic peep toes can be worn together...just keep your accessories simple and understated. Are you planning to wear jeans with the shell?

  6. Hi anon @6:37! I think the Citrus Lime looks pretty with White, Khaki, Stone, Light Gray, Denim, Navy Blue, Olive(Army) Green, Golden Cypress (slightly lighter than the Olive Green), and Brown. HTH!!! :)

  7. FFM, I was planning on wearing dark wash wide leg jeans with the shell and peep toe shoe. Its pretty cold up here in pa so I need to cover my arms at the restaurant. I'm not sure if a blazer is appropriate or a cardigan. I do have the blue and burgandy ecole but no cardigan that is similar to the one in your polyvore with the chiffon shell. Maybe ill go to jcrew tomorrow and see what is there.

  8. Good Morning Gwen! That combination sounds beautiful, and I think the Burgandy Ecole would be lovely with the shell and denim, too! :)

  10. Anon @9:00: I really like the yellow/pink combination, and I think they will look nice together. J.Crew actually had a scarf over the holidays that had Chartreuse and a Berry Color together, as well. :) If the Sour lemon is very close to the color of the Citrus Lime IRL, the look could be a very *monochromatic* one, too. HTH!!

    TIA

  12. Hi anon @11:31! I vaguely remember the citrus lime in the tank as appearing more yellow than green. I am headed to my local J.Crew this evening and will double check. I'll post back on this thread either tonight or tomorrow morning to let you know for certain. :)

  14. I performed surgery today on my bow-necklace cardi. I cut off all the little bows because they limited the use of the cardi IMO. More importantly, the heather color is strikingly similar to the putty color of my chiffon sequin shell. The cardi with the bows was too much to pair with the shell but now they look great together! Thanks for your help FFM. Much appreciated!

  15. Good morning Anon @11:31! The Citrus Lime in the ruffle tank is more yellow than green...it reminds me of a Yellow Highlighter. HTH! :)
