J.Crew: Cotton-Poplin Tie Dress Styling

Celery & Silver
Today was my first real foray into the world of Polyvore, a tool that is used and loved by many. I will continue to play around with, and post sets I create that I think are of interest, especially those for clothes I actually review.

Today's set is Celery & Silver, in which I paired yesterday's review,
J.Crew's Cotton Poplin Tie-Front Dress, with some classic accessories:

  • A J.Crew Jackie cardigan in light pewter
  • A pair of J.Crew Pippa sandals in silver
  • A pearl bracelet (photo from Forever 21)
I also wanted to add a pink headband to this set, but I didn't like any of the pictures of the headbands, so I'm just letting you know. I think a nice bright (not electric) pink headband would a nice color contrast to this outfit, and prevent it from looking bland or washing you out. (You could say it will add a nice "pop of color", but you will not ever hear me say this, because I cannot stand that phrase!)

Polyvore posts will be tagged as Polyvore, and then as the focus item(s) and brand(s). Because this set was built around the J.Crew dress, it is tagged as both JCrew and dresses.]

Do you own this outfit? It is super-cute and I think it would look great!

Thanks GingerSnap! I own the dress, and the cardigan is on its way to me. I own the sandals in the "Guava" (copper) color, but I do not own the bracelet.
