I was so proud of myself when I put this outfit together for this week’s Style Imitating Art painting which is totally gorgeous and right up my alley (see it here). Metallic and black and white? Yeah, I can do that!

Apparently I really like to wear this faux leather shirt with this cardigan!

Unlike some of my previous Then and Now posts, I like both outfits equally. Probably because the only thing I did was change my shoes and my necklace.

So, if you ever needed proof that I repeat outfits, here it is.

    I have that same cardigan, and I almost wore it with a faux leather top last week! But the faux leather has a kind of intricate laser cut pattern, and I’ve put on weight and it stretched just enough I didn’t feel comfortable in it. Plus, I find that I get really warm under the faux leather – do you have that problem?

      This top is jersey material underneath the faux leather and is jersey material in the back. So far I haven’t had any issues with getting too hot but that might be because my office is always freezing.

    I think both outfits work great, and don’t think I could choose between the two either. I love that leather top on you, too!

    Also going to check out this top ten remix thing… hmmmmm…

        Yea, I saw it… it definitely is, and I might try to kinda sorta work stuff like that into outfits this month. I’m going to try to plan things in advance more, instead of doing the dreaded “what to wear today?” dance in my towel each morning. But I love the idea of using items that I got because they were so “me”… I have a bunch of those, and many of them I’m afraid to wear haha.
