Hello! Shein recently sent me this pretty burgundy sweater to incorporate into my winter wardrobe. This is their "Plunge Drop Shoulder Cable Knit Sweater" and it retails for $18 here. I decided to style it with a few other burgundy pieces for a statement monochromatic look. I layered the sweater over a maroon dress and also slipped on a pair of thigh-high socks in a matching hue.

I added a touch of feminine charm to the look with a rhinestone and pearl embellished necklace and a pretty pink scarf tied in a bow around my neck. Paisley platform heels and peachy cat-eye sunglasses added my signature vintage flair to the look. A classic watch, a couple golden rings and a swipe of coordinating lipstick perfected the look.

Wearing My Heart on My Sleeve(s)

Hello! Shein recently sent me this striped top to incorporate into my winter wardrobe and I've already worn it several times. This is their "Frill Trim Pinstripe Sweatshirt" and it retails for $17 here. I love its classic print, boxy silhouette and ruffled detailing; I seriously can't get over how much I love its frilly sleeves. Ha- I guess you could say I'm wearing my heart on my sleeves! The overly feminine detailing of the sleeves looks great peeking out from underneath any jacket or coat.

I played up its classic appeal for this look and layered it over a little black fringe dress. I emphasized the fun fringe detailing of the dress by slipping on a fringe jacket with it as well. I love how the sleeves of the sweater look peeking out from underneath the fringe jacket. I made my outfit a little more appropriate for the chilly weather we've been experiencing here in Richmond with a pair of black opaque tights and a vintage fur beret.

I added a slight touch of color to the look with a vintage pair of green booties and chic green purse. Red lipstick and classic golden jewelry perfected the look.
