Figuring Out My Dolman Wrap




 Forever 21 Dolman Wrap - S (2009) (similar here)
Gap Argyle Sweater - XS (remixed here) (similar here)
Banana Republic Layered Ruffle Skirt (remixed here and here) (buy here)
Charlotte Russe Bow Belt - S (recent but not online anymore) (similar here)
Nordstrom DKNY Brown Opaque Tights - S (buy here)
Forever 21 Chic Leatherette Stilettos in Olive - 5 (buy here)

I wanted to try something new with my outfit today.  I was inspired by this post from Kimmie over at Blue Paper Lanterns who wore a similar gray dolman wrap over her dress the other day.  I originally bought this wrap on a whim while waiting to check out at Forever 21.  It was on the clearance rack for $7 and the fabric is so soft that I decided to buy it without trying it on.  Unfortunately, I didn't realize it was a dolman sleeve until I tried it on at home.  I personally am not too big on dolman sleeves as I feel like it can look a bit sloppy at times, but the material of this wrap is so soft and the color is such a versatile gray that I decided to keep it.  And now, I'm determined to make it work!

I actually really liked how this outfit turned out and think that cinching in the wrap around the waist is the way to go to avoid it looking too shapeless on me.  I bought this belt separately from the skirt, but it just so happened to be the perfect color match!   I actually asked the bf what he thought and his only response was "uh, I don't know.  But you have a fun in your hose."  I actually nearly freaked out as I thought I'd have to start all over with my outfit, but fortunately I dug around and found a backup of my tights.  Whew.  Disaster avoided. 

Oh, and I got shellac nails for the first time a couple nights ago!  I'm in absolute love with these nails as they are supposed to last for at least 2 weeks with no chipping.  And unlike OPI Axxium gel  nails, you can use any nail polish color you want and still have the benefits of gel nails with the CND Shellac gel process.  The shellac is supposedly more gentle on your nails and doesn't require as harsh of a chemical to take it off.  I actually had a Living Social deal (I mis-tweeted that it was a Groupon deal) so I received a mani/pedi for 50% off at $30.  I will definitely do an update post in 2 weeks and see whether the shellac system really stands up to its claim.  :)

I love the entire outfit especially the ruffle skirt. You are so creative when it comes to mixing pieces to make your outfit stand out. That is one thing I want to do more but have yet to achieve.

Angga said... [Reply]

Oh please do make a review about the nails, my nail tech keep talking me to do it and she also said that is not hard on nails and last longer.
I used to wear those acrylic nails and now I'm freaking out about those stuff, because it makes my nails break.

Why you dont like dolman sleeves? they are awesome!! :-) Now you need to wear it more lol, it look good on you and the skirt is just awesome!!!

@Angga cool. i will write up a quick review of my shellac experience. i actually had acrylics for a long time too and my nails ended up being really weak afterwards.

i love the cardigan and think it looks great on you! when i first started wearing dolman sleeved tops, i hated that extra baggage under the arm, but now i've come to really like it. the style is just so much more breathable than the regular arm-tight sweaters.

i really like this outfit because:
1. i'm a huge sucker for argyle
2. the bow belt is SO CUTE!!

Elle said... [Reply]

Wow, the colors of your belt, skirt and shoe match perfectly. I love it! And I like the dolman wrap belted, it's a very unique look! It looks less breezy where you are now, in some of your posts from last week it looks freezing. :)

Okay two things:
1. When I opened up your outfit in Google Reader I was pleasantly surprised to see the dainty bow and ruffle skirt. I would have never thought to pair those items with a argyle sweater and I love it.

2. My friends and I were just talking about shellac nails last night!!! I want them so bad so please keep us updated about if they really don't chip!

lovely post!

kimmie said... [Reply]

Oh fun outfit! I totally love how the belt and skirt match, and they're seriously SO CUTE.

I totally know what you mean by not knowing what to do with the dolman sleeved wrap. I ordered mine online during the cyber monday sale at F21, and since it was final sale, I was determined to make it work.

and I LOVE your nails. and huge bling. SO PRETTY!

Cee said... [Reply]

You rocked this entire outfit! From the bow belt to the matching ruffle skirt and then the more casual look on top. I love this look, Kileen!

Elaine said... [Reply]

That bow belt is so cute!! I love it.

Shellac nails sound aamazing.... I hate chipped nails!

Your legs look fantastic with the skirt! Love the outfit!
Our engagement rings look similar and we have 2 cats! That's pretty neato! :)

Kristen said... [Reply]

I always struggle with dolman sleeves too, because I feel like they can look messy or shapeless. But belting this sweater was a great idea - very chic!

Angie said... [Reply]

what a cute ruffle/argyle unexpected mix!

Very cute layering today...and the belt completes the outfit so perfectly :)

PetiteXXS said... [Reply]

Ooo I love your nails! Would love to learn more about shellac nails, as I tried gel nails once and loved how long it lasted (3+ weeks with absolutely no chipping), but when they removed them my nails seemed damaged and kept peeling, which never happened before so I didn't want to try it again.

Really Petite said... [Reply]

I like how you layered everything! The argyle sweater is a nice touch:)

Kate said... [Reply]

Do you like shellac? I am doing it for the first time this week and I have heard mixed reviews...your nails look great though!

kileen said... [Reply]

@Kate I really like the shellac nails although for me I've already gotten a few chips after 6 days of wear. I had regular nail polish put on over the CND Shellac, so the wear probably isn't as good as if you went with Shellac nail polish as well. I'll post an update come next week when I hit the two-week mark with the polish!
