The lovely people at Stella Carakasi sent me some fun tops to try, and I chose this one to style first. The Dazzling Details top in Aubergine is a beautiful autumn color, which inspired me to pull out my cognac boots and the hand-woven silk scarf purchased in Vancouver a few years ago to accent the deep eggplant hue of the top. There are diagonal bands of different fabric textures, which also creates some visual interest. It has a flattering scoop neck and asymmetrical hem. I’m wearing an XS here, and the top is available up to XL, so seems to be available in a nice range of sizes. It’s a lightweight piece (rayon/spandex, machine washable) so will layer nicely under a jacket or cardigan. I’m wearing a silk camisole underneath for warmth.

The boots, well yes they’re a little wide in the calves. I bought them on sale over a year ago when I was on a mission to get some cognac knee boots. But they’re beautiful boots otherwise, and I’m still mulling over whether to invest in getting the calves taken in by my cobbler. This is such a classic style, and the color works with just about any other combo.
