Kate

Was feeling a bit inspired by Kate Spade this morning... I thrifted this dress about two months ago and figured by the time it was full on fall weather I'd figure out how to wear it... I loved all the buttons and the plaid, it's just short sleeved, v-necked, and had HUGE shoulder pads (in short sleeves?!?! really?!?!) So I had to figure out a way to make it less "early '90s" and I think this finally worked! I stole the red tights and mustard color combo from Kate Spade and ran with it...
 Cardigan - from a friend's "to the Goodwill" pile years ago
Dress - thrifted
Tights - Target
Shoes - Michael Kors


Ahh, but Kate does it best...

Isn't it funny how that Kate Spade campaign didn't really show us anything new, but it was SO inspirational? Something about the styling ... and I adore your take on it!

You can pull off the lovely bright tights. They look great on you! Thanks for the close up of your dress pattern. In the large pic is seems a solid color.

PS: We have 2 family members with Downs. One who is my age and a nephew who is only 3 yrs old. So that is part of the reason I was all fired up.
