Ensemble du Jour – 4-14-10

It’s been so nice out lately with all of the gorgeous flowers, but today I woke up and it was a bit chilly. I wasn’t ready to wrap back up, especially since I just did the Seasonal Swap of the closets, so I went with a delicate spring top and added a warm snuggly soft jacket on top.

The top was a rosette gathered chiffon and jersey piece from Anthropologie that I paired with a simple stretch pencil skirt from Target and black glitter flats also from Target.

Because it was chilly I added my soft yet structured jacket also from Anthropologie.

I was so excited that my new Tarina Tarantino necklaces arrived last night that I had to wear one right away. I shall probably be wearing these far too often.

Did you notice my new toy? I have been dying for a decorative dress form for ages. Most of the ones you see are more for function but I just wanted a pretty piece I could use to plan outfits. I’ve looked all over but surprisingly this one came from Pottery Barn Teens (PBTeen)!

They’ve done these in the past but the current two are the linen one that I got and a really cute black and white polka dot.

I was tempted by the polka dot but not knowing how I will be redecorating rooms in the future I felt the linen was a better choice and a more neutral backdrop.

I just love it and it was pretty affordable. It’s also much easier for me to take pictures of my outfits on it than trying to get myself into a good pose, so plan on seeing it a lot in the future too!

    LOVE the idea of a dress form for your outfit pictures! And that polka dot one is TOOO cute! I may have to pick it up, as it goes quite well with my bedroom decor…

    I think dress forms are a great way to lay out your outfit for the next work day or whatever too – and they make a good decor item. Thumbs up!

    Fantastic idea Poochie! I love it so much! It always takes me forever to try to get in a pose that is somewhat decent and even then I don't like the picture! However this is great;)smiles,gina
