Apr 16th - Outfit #13 - Awash in Colour

How much colour is too much? 

This much?
This outfit features two more "fresh" capsule pieces that I am wearing for the first time this month: the dress and the blouse.

I love this dress - I've had it since October 2008 when I wore it for my birthday party (one of the only times I ever wore it without another layer!). I last wore it here.

This is my painty Liz Claiborne blouse (last seen here).
And those are my Kraft Dinner yellow Tsubos (last worn here).

It's Patti's Visible Monday! Don't forget to check it out!

Dress (Maggy London), blouse (Jones New York), shoes (Tsubo).

Vizzini was helping me outfit-plan on the weekend.


  1. Hey Vizzini! I'm loving your Tsubos and your color mix. And the dress has a great silhouette on your slim/curvy frame! Thanks so much for linking up to Visible Monday.

  2. This dress is drop-dead gorgeous all by itself and then to add such great touches of color. You do purple so well.

  3. Bah! Burgundy/Wine/Maroon/Whatever you want to call it, it's a pseudo-neutral! Would love to see that palette with a teal belt

  4. I think the pieces work perfectly. It's like my heart went to matchy match town and stayed. Not to mention the necklines look marvelous with each other! Never too much color. Maybe the blog world is skewing that opinion, but I love it.

    Also awww Vizzini! I love his white whiskers! So cute.

  5. I love all of the color, especially the shoes! Adorable photo of Vizzini! How is he doing? Sending all of you virtual hugs and purrs...

  6. Not everyone can get away with so much color, but you can. You're special. And I'm sure, in real-life, people expect you to push the envelope and accept your sartorial adventures.

  7. I want your shoes, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  8. Vizzini is so cute, especially hiding out in your bag!

    Love the colours in this outfit, you look fantastic and so cheerful. Hope you are feeling as cheerful as your outfit :)

  9. All the colour is so springy and wonderful. Definitely not too much.

    Cats hiding in bags and boxes is always so cute. How is Vizzini adjusting?

  10. Hi Vizzini!!

    The colors in your blouse are lovely, I really like it and the shoes just match it so well! Lovely look!

  11. Not too much color at all! (And I'm almost afraid to wear ANY color, so if it doesn't shock ME...)

    I love that blouse very much. And all of the colors here complement your own natural coloring so nicely.

  12. Just the right amount of color. Your outfit is creative and artistic looking.

    Plus, kitty's eyes go perfectly with your outfit :)

  13. Love the colors on you. Would also love to see the blouse belted over the dress so the dress looks like a skirt!

  14. I'm learning a lot from reading your blog. I love the colors on you.
