OOTD: Classic Color Combinations

Give me the chicest black (faux) leather jacket, and the softest vivid blue (faux) suede dress…







Jacket: Blank NYC | Dress: JustFab (also comes in olive green and pink!) | Necklace: J. Crew Factory
Bag: Chloe (other colors herehere and here) | Sunnies: J. Crew
Pumps: Loeffler Randall | Rings: Anthropologie

I love blue and black and there is nothing wrong with that! Playing around with textures like faux leather and suede makes a classic color combination more interesting to wear. I’ve found this dress to be a wonderful closet addition that works for everything from family dinners to date night to work. I’m very tempted to get it another color. Although it’s suede it’s pretty lightweight, making it ideal to wear all Spring long! (I hear we’re breaking color rules now.)

Another item in this look that I already own in multiple colors is the sunnies, which get compliments every time I wear them. Depending on the way the light hits these green frames can look blue or grey too. See the green frames on me here and here.

I also own the sunnies in blue, which you can see on me: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

Do you have a go-to color combination for your outfits?

    I used my free shipping to get………

    One package of $3 caramels. Hahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!

    I did try to order more, because it says they have six, but they would only let me have one, so that is what I got. Yum Yum! 🙂

    Stay warm and safe, everyone!

    Is this a north region offer only? lol. I don't see this when I get Anthro's website and I am in Atlanta. 🙂

    • March 14, 2017 / 9:39 am

      I don't see it on the website either and I'm in NYC — I got an email about it. =) Try the code in your cart.

        Thanks for posting this Roxy! You saved me a bunch of money 🙂

        • March 15, 2017 / 8:19 am

          Of course!

      I don't see it either down south.

        The code works anywhere, I just tried it.

    If snow is a reason for free shipping, we should get free shipping 8 months of the year up here! :^)

    I will probably take advantage of this one + sale.

    Thanks for the tip!

    I have the Side-Button Tank and loooove it! I wore it several times in Costa Rica. =)

    Thanks for letting me swap in affiliate links.

    It seems the new Anthro website deletes reviews if an item goes out of stock, and the reviews are gone even if an item pops back. Not my reviews, but I'm pretty sure several of the Paola d'Arcano shoes had multiple reviews on fit that are gone now.

    Anyone else notice?

    • klj1
      March 14, 2017 / 2:42 pm

      I noticed this on another item.

    • Karen
      March 14, 2017 / 2:54 pm

      Scroll down and you'll see reviews. I often see no stars but then at the bottom of the page, all the reviews are there. Anthro's website is a disaster and has been since the current version first appeared.

    I got shipping waived on orders I placed within 14 days. She asked me for the code. Thanks Roxy for posting. Now, more shopping!!! Maybe the tassel necklace from Jcrew…

      March 14, 2017 / 4:38 pm

      Me too!

      • Dina
        March 14, 2017 / 4:39 pm

        Had 21 orders lol (at least half of which I had to return for fit issues).

        • Dina
          March 14, 2017 / 5:02 pm

          Although I already had the shipping waived on around half those orders, mainly for placing several orders in a row.

          • Dina
            March 17, 2017 / 1:46 pm

            Although asking for shipping waivers is hit and miss nowadays. I usually get told no now (so less orders will get placed by me, that's for sure!).

        • Anthronana
          March 15, 2017 / 1:12 pm

          I had like 4 orders for the past 14 days. And the agent told me that I place a lot of orders. Maybe it's time for me to slow down. 🙂 🙂

          • Dina
            March 17, 2017 / 1:45 pm

            4 orders in 14 days is a lot? LOL

    • March 15, 2017 / 8:19 am

      You're welcome!!

    OKay you guys, I'm MIFFED.

    I ordered a dress on Feb 27, it was backordered until April 1st. No problem. Meanwhile it popped back in stock at least 4 times over the past month. I didn't order it again. I called customer service twice to ask them if I should re-order it. They both said no, there will be a new shipment coming in on April 1st.

    So tonight I called to get a PA for the shipping because it still hasn't shipped. So now the CS says it is no longer in stock and not available anymore.

    DAMMIT. I really wanted that dress!

    So what did I do wrong? I told the CS that I want to speak with someone about it to clarify how to ensure that if I order an item it's going to show up. Especially if they are switching to this smaller number of items at a time method. Now there's no way to know if something's on back order if it will ever arrive or not.

    Dammit. I know it's just a dress but I've been waiting weeks for it!

    Roxy, do you have any thoughts?

    • Eina
      March 15, 2017 / 1:15 pm

      Sorry to hear that.

      I had this happen a few times too. I've placed second orders, and third, if the original order doesn't come in, and all are cancelled. Each time I call CS I'm told the order is still active and will come in. I guess that's the info they have, but I no longer bother calling. Sometimes I think they are phantom items, or perhaps defective and not entered properly.

    • Eina
      March 15, 2017 / 1:16 pm

      I've had this happen with full-price items too, even ones where it looked like there is a lot of stock.

    Is it still the case that I can't combine my birthday discount with the free shipping code? I called and they said no, just wondering if anyone has had any luck!

    what a cute outfit! I love the dress with the jacket. It looks like it would be great to transition from a work day to a night out or a nice dinner.

    • April 13, 2017 / 12:00 pm

      Yes, exactly! Perfect thought, thecoffeemom0617. 🙂

  19. April 12, 2017 / 3:48 pm

    That outfit is so stylish and just perfect for a day in the city. I love the jacket and it is so versatile and can be worn with a pair of jeans as well.

    • April 13, 2017 / 12:01 pm

      Thank you Vicky and you are so right!

  20. April 12, 2017 / 5:16 pm

    This is one of my favorite looks on you!! Oh wowza! Love! I never remember that blue and black is a great combo. Must remember so I can copy this outfit!

    • April 13, 2017 / 12:01 pm

      Haha thank you Cynthia, you really make me smile!

  21. April 12, 2017 / 7:09 pm

    Such a beautiful jacket and suede dress. The colors and the way you styled it are fabulous!

    • April 13, 2017 / 12:01 pm

      Thank you so much Karen!

  22. April 13, 2017 / 12:46 am

    Blue is one of my favorite colors, so this dress speaks to me! I love the color combination! That bag is the perfect size for a night out!

    Very pretty!! I love the blue and black combo as well. That is such a cool Chloe bag, didn't know they made backpacks!!

    • April 13, 2017 / 12:02 pm

      They do, they do! And they are the cutest.

  24. April 13, 2017 / 2:10 am

    Wow, I love that blue suede dress! It is the perfect combination with the black jacket. Such pretty jewelry too

  25. April 12, 2017 / 10:48 pm

    I don't have a go-to color combo unless you call black and gray a combo! 🙂 I need to branch out more. I truly love the blue and black.

    • April 13, 2017 / 8:02 am

      I definitely think black and grey are a great combo, see it all the time here in NYC. =)

    That bag though!!! Oh my god – I'm all over these new Chloe bags, they are so stunning and they've brought out the most beautiful shades too – this one and the burgundy one are my favourites! x

    • April 13, 2017 / 8:03 am

      Agree, the colors for Spring in Chloe's lines are to die for. Superficially of course. 😉

  27. April 13, 2017 / 5:49 am

    I am a fan of blue and have a lot of it in my wardrobe so I'm trying to expand my color range. I really like how you styled this look. It's perfect for the Meatpacking District or really anywhere.

    • April 13, 2017 / 12:03 pm

      Thank you much Cindy!! And agreed.

  28. April 13, 2017 / 8:01 am

    So true! It holds a good amount of stuff too.

  29. April 13, 2017 / 8:02 am

    This colour combination looks great! I love throwing on my (faux) leather jacket with outfits, it goes with so many outfits. Loving that bag and sunnies too!

  32. April 13, 2017 / 3:32 pm

    I love mixing grey and purple. That combo is always repeating in my outfits. I love the sunnies too!

  33. April 13, 2017 / 6:47 pm

    I'm a fan of texture play in fashion. That dress looks super soft!

    I've been giving this dress the eye…what are your views on fit? TTS? or go up or down? What size did you go with, if you don't mind sharing? I'm thinking going larger, so that it falls nicely….

    • May 6, 2017 / 11:14 pm

      True to size for me! I took my usual medium and it's pretty roomy.
