Sometimes I get carried away {some may call it manic} and want to wear all my fun things at once. That’s what happened here! Hat, scarf, faux fur collar, dress, belt, coat, and boots. SEVEN items?!

hat :: Missoni for Target {similar here}
scarf :: Hermes (gifted from Mr. S) {similar here and here}
fur collar :: H&M {different version here}
dress :: BCBG (Marshalls) {similar here and kinda here}
belt :: vintage Hermes
boots :: Alex Marie (Dillards) {similar here and here}

“Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory.” -Coco Chanel

Coco was right.  Every piece changes the look of an oufit.  Let’s see the transformation as I peel off the layers…

Off with the hat!

Off with the coat!
And off with the fur collar!
Naturally, I tend to over-accessorize.  But remember, less is more.  {That is something I’m working on!}

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  Happy Monday!

  1. You look lovely either way, but you are right. Sometimes less is more. I always feel like I need to add something else all the time. LOVE your belt :) Heather

    I love the collar and scarf!


  3. skippysays says:

    I love all the accessories, but I love the look simple too- so pretty! And the boots are awesome!

  4. You are gorgeous Sam so you don’t need a lot of accessories :) I love all of the accessories though! Especially the scarf! – Dreama

  5. Funnily enough, I thought you look great with ALL 7 different items on!

  6. Divya @ Savedbythebehl says:

    I over accessorize too and feel silly, but sometimes I don’t care! It’s like a fashion buffet, and I’ll eat all I want! PS I love the dress, scarf fur look the best!

  7. Awesome layering Sam! My faves are the fur collar and colorful scarf, so chic and glam and adds a great pop of color. I love the details on the hat as well.

  8. I think less is more is a great concept. Some of us suffer from accessory ADD, don’t worry about it!

  9. Sam this look is so great layered up or with some of the pieces removed. I LOVE it!!! I think that scarf with the fur collar is genius.

  10. WOWOWOWOWOWOW……. That is a lot of accessories my! I like it, the fur collar or the scarf with the dress, and you look fantastic in hats! OK so the real question is…do you wear your leather pants to sit down and eat dinner in them???

  12. Hey foxy lady! Are you stripping on blogger now? LOL You know I had to tease you, because you kept removing a layer. Honestly, I loved them ALL together! It totally worked Sam! You always look amazing. Great outfit! LOVE LOVE! :D

    Bessie! I do sit in my leather pants and eat dinner! That being said, they are NOT as nice as yours! I have a pair that are stretchy in back so no knee bumps! But yes to the all leather ones! LOL! :)

    I love it! With all the layers you look very femme fatale, I have already imagined an opening for a movie… it was a dark and rainy night…
