Daily MelWear: The Versatile Cardigan

The thought had never crossed my mind to layer a cardigan underneath another piece until I saw another blogger do it.

Unfortunately, I can't remember who that blogger was! I wish I could so that I could link to her for you. I have an awful memory.

At any rate, this is my first attempt at it and it turned out okay. What I'm really excited about are the belt, ring and necklace! One of our gigs last week before Christmas was at an outlet mall with a Charlotte Russe. They were having a great sale so I picked up some accessories on one of our breaks. Yay!

These photos are proof that I have GOT to get a tripod for my iPhone. Normally my pictures aren't horrible but when I have to take them myself...ugh. And apparently I need to clean off the mirror more often. I need suggestions for a good iPhone 4 tripod. Or someone can send me a DSLR camera with a tripod! That would work too! Any takers? No?


Today's outfit:
Black Dress: Plato's Closet
Blue Zebra Cardigan: Wal-Mart
Black Leggings: Charlotte Russe
Black Boots: Can't remember
Black Belt: Charlotte Russe
Black Rose Ring: Charlotte Russe
Necklace: Charlotte Russe

{Maybe Charlotte Russe wants to sponsor me?}


  1. That belt is too cool.
    I've done the cardigan layered under stuff before, but I got the idea from E on Academichic, maybe thats where you saw it too?

  2. Charlotte Russe really does have the best accessories! Since I've been working at F21 I've been buying more stuff from there lately but I can't wait to get back in my Charlotte Russe groove.

    I've never seen the cardi layered under something look before...so if I ever do it, you'd be my inspiration!

  3. I like layering cardigans. It adds so many more options to your wardrobe. Lovely new accessories.
    No Guilt Fashion

  4. I love that cardigan. I've only ever layered a cardigan under a cardigan, but it looks great the way you've done it.

  5. I Love that Belts. I used to Work At Charlotte Russe. That Whys half my clothes are from there. You look so cute today.


  6. I've seen cardigan-on-cardigan layering on B. Jones. I really like it - you look adorable!

    I love that ring!!

  7. Love Charlotte Russe for accessories!!

    Try a Gorilla tripod. It bends in every direction. I think you can use for it the iphone, too.

  8. I always love your accessories! I finally got a chance to go to Beya and found a great necklace and earring set for next to nothing on Black Friday!

  9. That belt is awesome. I miss Charlotte Russe.
    I also second the gorillapod. I got one for my birthday that has magnetic feet. I love it!!!

  10. I really like the cardigan idea and I never would have thought to do this on my own. Great belt!!
