to be honest..untill one year ago I thought exactly the same, but Isabel Marant makes the impossible workable!
Yesterday I found the Pink Rivera scarf with 30 % off, I couldn't believe my eyes, YAY!!!!
Congrats! Btw, recently I have not been able to see any of the pics that you post on your blog for some reason?
Really? Awhhh darn! If you were still there we could go for coffee and talk IM!! Where are you located now? Haha yes I decided to keep the sweater for now due to the overwhelming response from the ladies here
Good-you're keeping it! Yea-too bad-i would love that! Do you know boutiques there that carries IM? I do visit once in awhile to see my folks-I'm in Boston and i think there's only 2 stores here that has IM. Sad!
Thank you for your kind words, ladies! You’re so right about wearing a black tank with the Abut – it looks better and more polished.
Part of my challenge is figuring out what to pair with what. Some of you say you don’t accessorize much, but you always look so chic with the right jacket or shoes. I need to observe and learn...
juneping – I’m a scarf addict too! My neck gets cold easily. But like you, I don’t wear much jewellery in the winter. I’m afraid necklaces will get tangled in a scarf and bracelets will get caught in sweater and coat sleeves!
Kaypa – You totally know how to accessorize w/ your lovely Celine bag and shoes!
jaded81 – So glad you’re keeping the red Ritchie. You can’t have too many sweaters when you live in Canada.
flower71 – My green jeans are AG “Farrah” skinnys. It took me a while to warm up to colored jeans, but I love them now.

Somehow I missed the talent of combining nice accessories to complement my outfit. I admire everyone that can really style an outfit with the perfect accessories. Anyway, congrats with all these beautiful items! IM is really made for you!

Nice haul! I also wish i could be one of those girls who have a knack of accessorizing an outfit. Love the scarves-such an easy way to dress up an outfit. :)

As for accessories, all depends on how comfortable you are wearing them. Go with fewer pieces and classic styles. The bracelets and necklace you have on with your outfits are really nice (love your scarf!)!!
I love and wearing accessories. I have few pieces that I must have them on before heading out the door due to sentimental value (like my watch, Tiffany ring & a snake diamond ring which was a gift from my mother). Then I would add pieces that I collected over period of times ....

I'd wear a black tank or white tank under the Abut sweater. I love your green pants too...
So, I got the Merry sandals in tan. They do run narrow and I could've taken one size up but at least my toes and heels don't hang over, phew!
The leather is so soft and supple! I hope these will look good with my soon-to-arrive Calice dress.
Thanks for your kind words! I am horrible with jewelry though!
Oh, I love your Merrys. They look so cute on you! Am currently watching them and hoping for a second markdown before buying them. It does worry me that they run very narrow. Do you think that the leather will stretch with wear or do you think it would be best to size up? You have beautiful feet, so these look like a perfect fit on you!
