Rand dislikes most TV, and can't stand to be in the same room when bad reality TV is on. He is a better man than I, b/c I love some bad reality TV. So I made a standing date to watch Survivor at a friends house. It give us an opportunity to catch up with my friend and prevents Rand from being subjected to bad TV.

I wore this same dress and sweater together a couple of months ago, but then I layered the sweater over the dress rather than under. ------------>

Which do you prefer? Over or under?

What I Wore That Was Under Rather Than Over:

2010-02-25 combo

  • black dress (Gap)
  • cream cowlneck sweater (Anne Taylor)
  • black fishnets (Target)
  • gold/black pumps (Anne Klein)
  • cream leaf brooch (via Goodwill)
  • white/gold/silver braided belt (new, via Goodwill)
  • silver circle cuff bracelet (can't remember)

What I Ate Before Watching Survivor:

2010-02-25 food

  • breakfast: homemade McMuffin, grapfruit
  • lunch: leftover pasta, snap peas, small apple, cheese stick (melted)
  • snack: lite yogurt, SoyJoy, small orange, hot tea
  • dinner: sloppy joe made with longhorn beef, roasted onions and veggies
  • midnight snack: 7 almonds

Total for the Day: 29 points, no exercise

Under gets my vote!

Over. And I love the shoes.

i love the look both ways!
with the over look, i love that the black peeks through the sweater, almost making it look like a patterned sweater.
with the under, it looks very much like a color-block dress.
2 totally different looks from the same pieces -- nice!

I like both...the sweater over is more casual, work-dayesque and the sweater under is a dressier look.

I like the under better!

I hate most reality tv, including American Idol. I think that makes me some sort of communist.

I definitely prefer over. I think with the under, you're getting a bit of a nunnish vibe...though Maria would never have worn such hot shoes. ;)

Sarah said...

I like over more because I like how the black peeps through.

I love the circle braclet!

How did you eat 7 almonds for a snack? I would still be hungry!!!

I like under; the proportions work better to my eye.

I am so hooked on Survivor this season; Colby vs. Boston Rob, RAWR.

Under, it works better for you and create a more polished figure. But it also gives you a more "severe" vibe, so I tink next time you can try adding a pop of color with a diffeent belt or maybe differnte shoes.

That's a neat idea to completely reverse the layering of your items! I actually prefer the "under" variation that you wore on Thursday. You look very sleek in spite of many layers, and those shoes are just awesome with anything that you wear.

I actually like the over, the fact that you can see the black looks kind of cool in the picture, not sure how it looks in real life, but in the picture it looks great!

Thanks for all the input on my over/under choice. It looks like either way, I come out okay. :)
