Mornings in Marigold


As much as I love the color yellow, I have to admit I only had one mustard blouse in my entire closet.  So when they announced that this cheery hue was the theme for the EBEW July challenge, I panicked.  Thankfully, eBay came to my rescue and I found something just in time...literally!  It arrived on Thursday & we shot on Saturday, which meant I didn't have time to take it to the tailors (so I added a belt).  Since the cut of this dress is very classic & sophisticated, I chose to modernize it a bit with some angular shoulder-grazing earrings and a dash of leopard print.



What I'm wearing:
Banana Republic dress, BCBG heels, Mossimo belt, Target earrings, Monet & vintage bracelets (Lips: L'Oreal Target Red, Nails: OPI Bullish on OPI)
