WIW: Attitude & Theory

Sounds like a new University course doesn't it?

The attitude I'm wearing is my favourite dress of all time - the abstract print Attitude by Jay Manuel jersey wrap dress. This dress is going on 4 years old and I love it just as much now as when I bought it. The print and colours make it incredibly versatile for various toppers. Today is the first pairing of the dress with my navy Theory Lanai blazer - why didn't I think of this before??? Nude hose to mimic bare legs as a nod to Spring and then I added my cobalt/purple suede booties for footwear. If I was more organized I would have switched to a clutch handbag but my trusty black satchel will have to do. For jewelry I am wearing my silver Haida wedding band and a gunmetal/abalone shell bracelet. Glasses are my purple/clear oversized ones.

I'm happy with how this turned out - what do you think? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

And Gain says "good meowrning" :)

    Love your outfits! Perfect and chic to work, but the booties and the hair gives a bit of edge!

    Looks super as always, Shannon! That dress has been such a workhorse for you!

  • El Cee replied 10 years ago

    Gorgeous! I never get tired of seeing that beautiful dress. I love your new specs. [Oh… and hello to Gain. Cute little photo-bomber!]

  • Suz replied 10 years ago

    Stunning, Shannon. That is one of my favourite dresses on you, ever, too. I wonder if it's duplicatable via ebay. Such a winner with longevity, too.

    Shannon this is downright amazing. I love the dress and the newer blazer is great with it. The slight cutaway really works. Fab blue accent in the booties :)

    Isn't it great when you go on deepening your love for a piece?  With this one, the love is well deserved!  It loves you back.

  • Windchime replied 10 years ago

    Brilliant! The dress and Lanailook like a million bucks on you, and your blue booties are a quintessential Shannon touch. Cute kitty, too.

  • Jaime replied 10 years ago

    This is the sort of outfit that inspires Lanai love - fantastic!

  • adorkable replied 10 years ago

    Swoon. Also love the name of the post. :)

    Nice to hear you all love this dress as much as I do :) 

    Suz, I've scoured eBay for a few months now to find a duplicate of this dress in any of the colors it was originally offered in, but no luck. I'll keep watching though - you never know.

  • Neel replied 10 years ago

    Ooooh!! Gorgeous dress!! No wonder you love it! And I love your outfit too!!

  • replied 10 years ago

    This is such a classic Shannon look. I love it! (And I'm drooling over those purple booties.)

    Perfection as always.
    Loved also the title :)

    Just loving the nude hose with the booties. So fresh. xo

  • Beth Ann replied 10 years ago

    This is a look that whispers "spring is coming," while being practical in cooler temps.  You're doing a beautiful job of combining your dresses and jackets.  It's a great look for your style and the workplace.

  • Sara L. replied 10 years ago

    Great look!  I love the colors and pattern on the dress.  The blue booties are a fun finishing touch.

  • Lisa replied 10 years ago

    I'm so glad you did a close up shot of those booties, they are a great color.

  • Emily replied 10 years ago

    Very nice!  Gotta love finding an outfit that's been hiding in plain sight.  You look fab.

    I love that dress on you & love the way you've styled it :)
