Fauxionable Outfit – Feeling Blue

Some days I can’t help but be a little matchy-matchy in my outfits. With the Spring-like weather, a scarf isn’t needed with my turtleneck top but I wanted to interject some colors to my otherwise boring outfit. The bright blue scarf was the perfect antidote to match the other shades of blues in my outfit!

Fauxionable Outfit – ZARA Wool Dress

Thanks to your lovely input to this post, I have decided to keep the ZARA Wool Dress and have returned the skirt. I wore it out for a date night with G and kept it simple by doubling the wool scarf as a shawl when indoors to keep my shoulders warm. My outfit attracted some attention, as we had a visitor while G was taking my outfit shots!

To Keep or Not to Keep?

In my previous post, I mentioned that I’m mulling over whether to keep few items from the recent ZARA sales. The items in question are the Wool Dress and the High Waist Skirt which are both marked down almost 40%. While I like the dress, I’m not sure if it’s worth keeping even at the marked down price. (Champagne taste on a beer budget, much?) Caring for the dress however, is relatively fuss free as it can be machine washed. (The dress is made of 50% polyester, 21% viscose, 20% wool, 7% polyamide, and 2% elastane).

That aside, I’m also wondering if keeping the skirt would be the better way to go since it is more versatile. The drawback to the skirt however, is that there isn’t a zipper, so it isn’t the easiest to put on and take off! In addition to that, the skirt calls for hand wash (not my favorite thing to do!) as it is made of 69% polyester, 29% viscose and 2% elastane.

So my dear readers, as I continue to ponder over which item to keep, I’d like to hear you chime in the comments below. Thank you!
