WIW 11.25.13 - Houndstooth and Hot Pink

I like this outfit...and all the layers are keeping me nice and warm.

I'm irritated with my collar though...it won't stay put. If I could breathe with the top button done up, I'd button it, but it cuts off my airway, so I'm resigned to looking a bit like Disco Stu.

    That bright pink sweater is awesome with this. This fit on everything (except the blouse as you said) is so perfect. I seriously doubt anyone will mistake you for Disco Stu.  Who is he anyway? He must be a Simpsons character?

    Amy you need some styling tape! It's meant just for moments like this when your collar won't stay down! It works really well to close gaps in your bust area when you wear a snug button through shirt. Get some!

    Cute colors and love the jacket.

    Lol, yes, he's a Simpson's character.

    Disco Stu should be so fab!!  I love this!  That color is fantastic on you!

    Oh, those pesky flyaway collars. Still, you look great! I like splashes of hot pink against subdued classic patterns like houndstooth.

    bf once used glue stick to hold a RTW shirt collar down. He says it washes out of cotton NP and doesn't stain. YMMV; I'm more of a safety-pin-from-inside-garment kind of jury rigger.

    Love this, Amy!  As long as you don't start the pointing thing, you're safe from Stu comparisons.

    I would copy it exactly except that I just found holes (from wear) in my years-old hot pink JCrew cashmere. Weeping silently over here.

    Love the pink with the houndstooth, Amy! You look smashing. And I am not averse to a little flyaway collar now and again...showing my age I guess...

    Great combo! A little disco never hurt anyone!

  • Windchime replied 10 years ago

    What a bright, cheerful look for (here, at least) a gloomy November day! Hot pink and houndstooth go together like...Disco Stu and the Simpsons?! Seriously, I love this combination and wore it myself recently as a hot pink sweater and a houndstooth skirt.

    I love Dicso Stu and you look fabulous. 

  • AJ replied 10 years ago

    Ha, no Disco Stu vibe here, Amy. Luv the pink with the blazer! Your shoe choice is a FAB finishing touch!

  • LACeleste replied 10 years ago

    You look great Amy!  The pink is so flattering on you!

    Another Disco Stu fan here - he rocks! And so do you in these gorgeous colors Amy. Love the pink with houndstooth!

  • Emily replied 10 years ago

    Looks great - I'm not seeing disco stu at all.  Unless there are goldfish in your shoes...

  • Amy replied 10 years ago

    Thank you!

    LOL @ Emily - I always wanted a pair of those shoes :) Except I can't keep the fish in my tank alive for very long and that makes me sad.

  • Jaime replied 10 years ago

    I love your outfit and I love Disco Stu and I do NOT see the resemblance!

    Thanks, ladies. Really, I don't mind if there is a bit of resemblance to Disco Stu. He cracks me up :)
