Dots & Blue Pop

Outfit details: Land's End cashmere sweater, Sara Campbell skirt (very old), Lafayette 148 coat, Miu Miu booties (similar here), Miu Miu bag, BaubleBar necklace

I've had this polka dot sweater skirt for ages and it's perfect for when I want to look polished but don't feel like getting all gussied.  I gave the black and white an extra pop with my bright blue coat.

Let's talk about my necklace (which I bought in 2 colors).  I had eyed it some time ago on BaubleBar because it reminded me of a Lanvin necklace that I loved from several years ago. The BaubleBar necklace is a fraction of the price of the Lanvin but you get what you pay for. The first day I wore it, 2 beads dropped right off while I was at work which is so disappointing.  The same thing happened with the other color.  I'm going to call BaubleBar to express my disappointment but I think this will be my last purchase from them.

I have a lot of stuff from Bauble Bar and I've never had an issue with anything! There must be a defect with that necklace. I've always found their customer service to be great so hopefully they can rectify that in some way for you.

What a fabulous skirt and the blue coat is total perfection with this look! What a shame about your necklace though!

That's a shame to hear about the necklace!
I've noticed you have a really pretty necklace form HRH.. what do you think about it? I ordered a necklace form them and it apparently was delivered, but I never received it. :( Customer service was pretty unresponsive too, which was disappointing.

What a fun outfit. I love it. Plus it looks comfortable. Comfy and chic...cannot go wrong.

Lissy, get Baublebar to replace the necklace. I have the mint green one and just ordered the 'butter' colored one. Haven't had any issues.

This is one of the cutest and most flattering outfits I have ever seen you in. You look gorgeous. You know, I want to get the J Crew pave link bracelet, and then I saw imitations that were much less expensive. But now, I think you are right - I will buy the real thing because at least I can return it if it falls apart.

Hi Dani, I like this Kate Spade dot skirt http://rstyle.me/ipx3smeh3w

Bettina, I really like my HRH jewelry. Have you tried tweeting her or posting on her facebook page?
