Hot pink wing tips :-)

I enjoyed this outfit today. It was a little feminine a lot tomboy. I love the shoes -- I can't wait to try it with other things (suggestions appreciated).  The happiness factor was pretty high with this outfit. Let me know what you think is the oversized sweater too boxy?

    SO FUN!!  Those shoes are a party on your feet!  I am not at all bothered by the big sweater -- it looks fashionably oversized to me.  You look fab!

    DV, let me start by saying sorry because I did not get to reply on your thread a few days ago and wish you a very, very happy birthday (10 days after my son's, now that will be easy to remember :-) ) I was positively stunned to read which anniversary it was ^^, I honestly thought it would be maybe 5th. And what a great way it was to announce it, true to your style. You have jumped on board with no hesitation and have brought such Style Quotient to YLF that I have instantly become a fan. You already know I love the mix of feminine and masculine in your outfits, and the fantastic mix of class and sass in every single thing you post.

    Take this outfit... I love the shoes, they would make me want to sing just looking at them. I too am not bothered about the size of the sweater, while it is big it is also not "careless big" but "I-know-what-I-wear-and-why-I-wear-it big". Navy button down is a great touch. And your hat... swoon. You really can't put a fashion foot wrong.

    MaryK -- that's exactly what I thought when I saw them PARTY! And ridiculously high happiness factor. 

    Golden -- I'm just trying to be half as fashionable as you when I get to be a mommy. 

    Alaska -- please don't go dying on me! Who's going to provide me with my reality check?! 

    Deb -- these shoes are not nearly as fabulous as that showcase of wonder you featured on your feet a few weeks ago. I'm still thinking about those shoes! 

    Ornella -- Wow -- no need to apologize at all!  Life gets busy. Then it slows down which is why I am on this forum at this ungodly hour of the morning. I absolutely accept your shaving 12 years off my age -- whole-heartedly :-D
    I think I have said this to you before -- we belong to the mutual admiration society! I completely adore your style and your use of color, proportion, line/fit  and masculine/feminine elements .

    The hat, which is a men's hat was purchased on a trip to LA in 2011 -- I first saw it and insisted DH buy it. He did. Then, I was not satisfied with part-time access to the darn hat I bought the exact same hat in a different size to allow room for my hair. It said "buy me" and I obeyed.

    You are just rocking these pink wingtips! I like the oversized ivory sweater a lot. So on trend with just the right amount of pizzazz DV style!

    Love this -- the shoes are so fun, and the sweater is intentionally oversized. Love the dark shirt underneath and the hat is brilliant.
  • Robin M replied 10 years ago
    OMG, I love this look on you!  Every single element works!  This sounds weird, but your earrings just make the lip color and smile pop-- and shows exactly what you were going for. (standing ovation)

    Such a fun outfit! It's tomboy chic. I'm mentally coveting those shoes and thinking of my wardrobe items I could style them with!! That's so bad....  :-)
  • kkards replied 10 years ago
    The shoes are  WOW!   I'm picturing them with an all white outfit, like Angie has shown in her blog and on Pinterest. 
  • annaj replied 10 years ago
    I adore the shoes!! You look amazing!!
  • Angie replied 10 years ago
    My word. You are SO CUTE I can't stand it. Really

    Look at you rock that hat with preppy chic, oxfords and lipgloss. KILLER! 
  • Thistle replied 10 years ago
    You look terrific, and I think the shirt is right on trend.  Those shoes, those shoes are amazing!  I am totally watching how you style these.  I love the concept, and have a pair I have my eye on, but I have no idea what to do with them!
  • Ingunn replied 10 years ago
    DV, I even don't know where to begin. You are a true fashionista and a source of endless inspiration. Those shoes are SO incredibly cool, and paired with the hat and sweater everything fall into place. And Angie is right, you are cuter than ever in this :)
  • Transcona Shannon replied 10 years ago
    SQUEEEEE!!!! Love everything about this outfit and those shoes are absolutely incredible. You are GORGEOUS!
  • Beth Ann replied 10 years ago
    Late to the thread, but I wanted to say that I love the "jazz age" feeling of this outfit.  Looks like Sammy and Gene and Fred and Ginger all rolled into one!

    Seriously, the shoes and cap make it for me.  The ease of the "main items" keeps it real world and not costume.

    (Brush step, ball change, brush step, ball change, bru.......)
  • Echo replied 10 years ago
    I love absolutely EVERYTHING about this outfit! The navy shirt under the sweater, and those SHOES! I die. Even your makeup is flawless. You are absolutely beautiful!
  • Nicole D replied 10 years ago
    I am seeing a tomgirl here - very feminine and sassy!  Shoes are droolworthy.  Another winner outfit and happy belated birthday to you also!
  • Joy replied 10 years ago
    This outfit is so much fun.  You are a polished girlie tomboy in the hot pink oxfords.
  • Mander replied 10 years ago
    Wow, those shoes!!!  I'm so jealous.
  • pil replied 10 years ago
    Looking forward to more pics with those shoes : )
  • Day Vies replied 10 years ago
    OK I guess I got my confirmation the sweater is not too big :-) 

  • Sarah A replied 10 years ago
    I love an outfit that showcases a great hat! And the shoes... speechless.
  • Deborah replied 10 years ago
