Dreamcatcher (See Jane Wear....and Forward On)

 J Crew top, Zara cardigan, BB Dakota vest, Gap cords, Chloe boots, Rebecca Minkoff bag, F21 necklace, Acanthus gold rings (c/o), borrowed Handle Only With Love dreamcatcher necklace
It's week #3 of the Bib + Tuck Forward Fashion project and as you can see, it's a litte more subtle than last week's item.  I thought a fur vest and a dreamcatcher necklace might be a little too 'Cher' for my taste but paired with my everyday basics like a silk top, dark cords and a striped cardigan, I think I toned it down to be more my speed.  Just goes to show that you can tailor anything, no matter how outrageous, to be more your style by incorporating it into your everyday wardrobe.

  1. I've been after a vest with a collar like that for the last few months- so sad that this one is sold out because it looks perfect! I totally love how you styled the two very typically boho pieces with your everyday pieces: the result is nothing less than effortless and perfectly appropriate city wear.

    Have a great week!

  3. This is so gorgeous! You are totally right about the ability of ANYONE to incorporate what seems like an outrageous piece into their wardrobe; its all about creating a balance, and you do that amazingly well with this outfit :). Love it!

  4. Really like how you styled the necklace. You seamlessly weaved (lol) the necklace into attire that would make it corporate/business appropriate!

  14. Great outfit. The vest and necklace are perfect together. I purchased a vest almost exactly like this one but it's so cold in NJ that I can't wear it alone yet. Can't wait to bring it out of my closet though!

  19. i completely agree, with pieces, whether they are jewelry or articles of clothing, that extend beyond the typical prescribed boundaries of comfort, incorporating them into your favorite classics can bring them into the fold in a more subdued way.

    i had a dream catcher necklace as a little girl, and i miss it!
