I have a confession - I am typically not a bow fan. While I consider my style feminine, I see bows as more "girly" and that isn't always the direction I want to take with my look. But it began with my husband gifting me this Kate Spade Beau Bag, and now it has spiraled into gloves. I can't tell you where it will stop, but I'm open to the ride. But bows aside, the star of this look is clearly the sparkly, glittery, make-you-want-to-bedazzle-again sweater. It was a bit of a splurge but I got it on sale so I can't complain (my wallet still can though, sigh). And probably my best investment of the entire outfit has been this T by Alexander Wang neoprene pleated skirt. Featured a few times on the blog (remember this and this?), I think it's truly the most flattering silhouette for most figures. Cinched at the waist while simultaneously floating away from the hips - it's the perfect hourglass illusion. And a red lip as the finishing touch? 100% sass approved.
