histrionic |ˌhistrēˈänik|adjective : overly theatrical or melodramatic in character or style

Yep, that pretty much sums up my outfit. It’s funny and strangely ironic, then, that when eating in cafes or restaurants HB and I like to point out women in flamboyant, crazy outfits and whisper histrionic under our breath whenever the opportunity arises.

Really enjoyed learning how to do this Carrie-esque bun thanks to Beth’s helpful video tutorial.

I really haven’t worn this faux-fur vest as often as I should – it’s so fun, fashionable, and dare-I-say-it slightly ridiculous that it’s sure to chic up any outfit. Last seen here.

Huge fan of my new American Apparel clutch (in tan) that I picked up at my local shop. It’s so on-trend and mimics the more expensive, classic version from Céline.

    I think the posh bun paired with the sort of funkier jewelry and fur vest makes you look like a rock star wife, but not the slutty ones. I'm talking about the brainy, I manage my husbands career type, like Sharon Osborne (but prettier)!

    Great outfit! LOVE the colorful gold pendant! Between that, your AWESOME new rose gold watch and your glam lipstick/nail combo, those few colors really make the already-awesome outfit really pop! Woot woot!

    Lovely outfit and I adore the bun. I wish my hair was longer because you do need length to make that beautiful bun. The top is absolutely beautiful! :))

    You should never wear anything but pumps as shoes…just perfect for your petite frame. Wonderful, A+ outfit. Loved it!

    Love the outfit (althought it is a bit histrionic 😉 however the HAIR is what makes it!
    I will have to check out that tutorial – you really look great with your hair pulled back like that!

    I love that top – I actually bought it in the wrong size bc mine was sold out and i had to sell it on eBay, but for a moment … it was mine!

    and the high bun is my new jam, wear it every day! love it on you.

    This is probably one of my favorite outfit posts from you. It's so over the top and FABULOUS!!!! Don't you wish women could dress like this everyday, and not get stares and whispers while crossing the street? It's gorgeous and chic. It breaks so many rules in the best way possible! And I absolutely have to do my hair that way! Thanks for the link to the video. I'll be practicing!

    You look gorgeous. Bravo! ::applause::

    This outfit is styled to perfection, and the coral lips and bun are beautiful! I have a similarly pleated mini dress I've been dying to wear but it is TOO cold where I am!

    I just started a style blog… thanks for your tips post, it was very inspirational and helpful!

  22. 03.01.2011 / 12:02 am

    Also, you have a gorgeous profile – does that sound weird? Hope not!

    The bun came out so well!!! It definitely needs to become a staple hair-do for you!
    I love the feminine vibe this outfit has, flowy, soft. I could totally see something like this on a street style blog shot on the sidewalks of NYC. Great look. 🙂
