Fashion Friday: Cream Up Top

Two items I’ve bought in the last two weeks happen to both be cream colored tops- one a chunky sweater and the other a sleeker knit. Here’s how I plan to wear them this fall:

I picked up this Gerard Darel sweater just yesterday- what you can’t see here is the one side has a funky metal zipper up the side from the bottom hem to armpit.  It fits PERFECT- long, lean and with a not too wide, not too close to the neck collar line.  I imagine it being INSANE with my favorite skinny leather leggings and heels in a chilly evening out! Pop on a faux fur scarf, some funky jewelry and this so good I might die bag from Tory I think it’s a cozy but sexy look to go out to dinner in.

Fun Fact: The knit of this sweater was based on a cable knit sweater owned by Marilyn Monroe- the designer, Gerard Darel, bought the actual sweater at auction and modeled this after it!


I picked up this very simple slight peplum top from J.Crew and think it’s a nice, simple but feminine option.  I wore it the other night with slightly distressed skinny jeans and a statement necklace.  Here’s a daytime look that’s similar, paired with some sparkly Tory flats, cute leopard calfhair belt and a classic tote with monogram!

  2. I love the way you put outfits together! So cool that the sweater is modeled after Marilyn Monroe’s. It is so pretty, and leather leggings are the most perfect idea for what to pair it with. Sorry, I know you probably hate hearing this but-outfit posts please! :)

  3. Both looks are great, but I am leaning towards loving and wanting everything about the first look! I want to bundle up in that cozy sweater asap :)
