Two Ways: Sabrina Pumps

Shoes: Sabrina Pump ($110)

From Left, Earrings: push Square Stack Stud ($134) Rings: Elizabeth and James Feather Ring ($95) and Gurhan Wave Ring ($150) Bag: River Island Croc Embossed Shopper ($136) Dress: Rebecca Taylor Crepe Seamed Dress ($350)

From Right, Sunglasses: Kate Spade Yvette Sunnies ($138) Earrings: Melinda Marie Cluster Earrings ($98) Ring: Bear Claw Ring ($56) Bag: Minkoff Morning After Bag ($495) Blouse: Tibi Baroque Blouse ($185) Skirt: LK Bennett Gail Pencil Skirt ($180)

For the Office.  The great thing about teal is that it can be worn in any season. (It is not the ‘color of gangrene’, despite what Jennifer Lopez says.)  This seamed dress from Rebecca Taylor is a great dress for early fall and winter (tights, people, tights).  Looking for a teal dress for less?  Try this long sleeve dress or this short sleeve dress, both from Overstock and both under-$30.

Plus-size: Try this ruched long sleeve dress.  Petite: Try this 3/4 sleeve dress.

For this look, I chose a mix of metals.  This is apparently my new obsession, but I digress…  I love this Gurhan wave ring because it’s simple and interesting at the same time.  If you’re looking for mixed metal jewelry that doesn’t break the bank, I like this bolt bracelet from Marc Jacobs, this Orelia stud ring and this mixed metal set from Forever21.

I also chose a black shopper, but you could go with something a bit more structured like this under-$50 Emperia tote.

For the hair, I would wear it down in a wave or straightened, dealer’s choice (but not pin straight, that’ a bit severe for daytime and this dress).  For the makeup, I like berry tones with teal so a Black Honey lip is on order.

For the Office.  I was never a big ran of mixing black and red until I saw Jean at Extra Petite do it.  As long as the blouse is a mix of black and white with more white, it works without being too severe.

I like the shape and feminine details on this blouse.  However, this black and white chevron blouse (or it’s less expensive sister) could also work.  I also considered this inexpensive Wallis blouse with a chain of bubbles print.

Plus-size: Try this subtly printed Jones of New York blouse. Petite: Try this black and white floral from INC.

This red pencil is from LK Bennett.  I like them a lot, but international shipping is $40.  So try this Loft cotton pencil or this Limited flounce skirt (super cute), both under-$60.

The jewelry is a little glam with a mix of black and gold.  If you’re looking for cheaper earrings, I like these Gilt triangle earrings and this Gorjana hexagon stud.

I chose a Rebecca Minkoff MAB satchel, my go to winter work bag, but you could look at this less expensive Follie K satchel or this under-$100 Jessica Simpson Melrose satchel.

For the hair, I’m thinking a bouncy ponytail or a low pony.  For the makeup, a red nail (I like Essie Lollipop) and a good kohl liner.

    The Loft skirt is currently 60% off–I just got it for $35 after taxes and shipping, plus 6% cash back through ebates

  2. dancinglonghorn says:

    FYI: LK Bennett shipping to US is only $10 (You need to be on their US site and not their International site).

    Also, you can call the LK Bennett in NYC and they will ship to your location at cost if you know what item you want. You can ever get a personal shopper their remotely.

    I have done both of these things before successfully without any problems!
