We rob banks, or Dress #4

Dress: H&M, bought in NYC;
Sweater: Mossimo, Target;
Scarf: Thrifted;
Belt: Fossil;
Tights: Target; 
Jade bracelet: Finder's Keepers;
Boots: Kady cognac, Target.
How I've worn the dress before: here.
How I've worn the scarf: here.

 The windy cold made outdoor photos seem dreadful, so here's my attempt at indoor photos. I'll admit I'm feeling a bit under the weather so I look somewhat disheveled in these photos. Can't be a winner everyday -- hope it's sunny and nice tomorrow.

About the outfit. This is day four of The Dress Project and this ensemble is a direct result of watching old movies late at night. "Bonnie & Clyde" came on a couple weeks ago and I've been loving Faye Dunaway's style in the movie. Pretty scarves and sweaters? Yes, please:


Short post tonight -- hoping that a movie and a warm blanket on the couch will help me feel a little better. 
Here's hoping!

  7. Hi Joann!
    Your blog brings sunshine into my life so I have nominated you for a Sunshine Award. You can get it here:

    Thanks for being so inspirational!

  8. under the weather? you look fantastic! I usually have kleenex balls shoved up my nose when I'm sick.

    I really want to see that movie, although now I fear it may spark a naughty spending spree on a new scarf collection

  9. The shirt dress is lovely and I love the pop of color from the scarf!

  10. Joann, you look so great. I love the shirtdress and the scarf! Totally amazing. I hope you're having a great day.

    xx Love & Aloha

  11. I love a shirtdress - this one looks fantastic, especially how you've styled it! I love the scarf touch, and love even more that you showed us what inspired this look.

    Hope you're feeling better and have a wonderful weekend!

  12. I just need to tell you that I counted my dresses.... I have 30 now (I say now, because I bought 2 more yesterday) and I can't see myself getting rid of any of them (ok maybe 1 or 2) nor can I see myself stop buying dresses... so I'm realizing that I'm not that far from a dress project myself!

  13. What a marvelous shirt dress - and you've styled it perfectly! The dark colors make such a great contrast to that springy pinstripe.

  14. I love the outfit and its inspiration--what a great scarf!

  15. Mariel at preppy with a twist just did an outfit inspired by the Bonnie & Clyde movie, too! ( I love your layering...and I need to remind myself to look for square scarves!

  16. I see Becky's comment above about my Bonnie-inspired outfit, but I just wanted to say that it's neat that we both had the same inspiration and yet our outfits turned out totally different! I love it!

  17. just started following your blog - your classic and elegant style is marvelous! absolutely loving how you tied your scarf in the 1930s aesthetic.

    looking forward to more amazing posts! :)


  18. The dress is gorgeous! looking for something similar myself...

  19. Cute Blog! I'm a new follower : )

  20. Oh the bonnie parker look is grat on you. I strive for that look often myself. It is just SO CHIC how could you not!

  21. Cute! I love the mix of patterns!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
