Lookbook: Geometric Naturals

8/13/2012

This was from a busy Saturday a couple weeks ago. I went to a baby shower and decided to dress up a bit, of course. The day before, I was wearing my ruffle lapel vest and a random lady complimented me. Then on this day, I received compliments about this look from three different people. Too bad I don't always remember to give them my card. Are you good about sharing your blog card?What attracted me so much to this top (which was sold as a dress, but is clearly way too short for that) was the cool geometric design on the back because it's so different from the solid orange on the front.Wearing:
♥Retro geometric print top from eBay ♥Foreign Exchange shorts (last seen in Color Me Spring♥Badgley Mischka lanah sandals from DSW (bought for 1/3 of the original price) La Mer wrap watch ♥Juicy Couture bagAfter the baby shower we went up to Oakland for dinner and drinks with some friends at Lake Chalet Seafood Bar & Grill. The restaurant is on Lake Merritt so there were so many great views and even gondola rides! But as you can see, I am wearing shorts and the weather was too cold for a gondola ride in the evening.

What do you think of this look?

  4. I'm not at all surprised that you're getting random compliments from strangers - you look great! And I am actually pretty bad at remembering to hand out blog cards (I actually need to get more printed soon...so thanks for the reminder).

  6. Wow...the geometric back does make the top very unique. Good choice, Cheryl:) And I never remember to give out my blog cards....NEVER! :(

  7. Cheryl, that's a great outfit. I can see why you received so many compliments. Blog business cards are important. I had some done when I had sassyuptownchic, but haven't done any for this blog yet. Was seeing how it would fare out and where it would go. It's definitely a good thing to keep them handy. Glad you had a great time. Have an amazing week!

  17. I can see why you were getting so many compliments this is a beautiful outfit the prints and the bright colors balance each other out perfectly. Good job and I am so bad about carrying my blog cards.

  18. I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE that top/dress. The graphic print is so unexpected yet fun with the orange/coral. No, I don't give out blog cards but then again, I'm not fashion blogger so I don't really "wear" my blog. Hehe. Unless J counts. But then lots of moms carry their babies and don't write blogs. Though I might carry a card if I'm taking pics of ppl and want them to know I'm legit, not a baby stalker.

  20. In love with the pink and black of course. I love this dress. I definitely wasnt expecting the funky print on the back. It spices up your look. I don't have any cards, never thought those would work with mine, I'm no professional.

  34. You look fantastic. I don't have blog cards, but sometimes I think I should.

    The Lake Chalet is such a pretty place, but I didn't love the food so much. It is a great location though.
