beautiful bolero

I am insanely busy at the office today but during a fleeting moment of procrastination I came across this stunningly beautiful bolero and just had to share! I have never sported a bolero, as I always thought I wouldn't be capable of pulling it off. However, I wouldn't give a second thought to covering my shoulders in these lovely silk taffeta ruffles from elizabeth dye.

Not only does this lovely piece come in ivory but in custom colors upon request-making it perfect for both the most formal and casual affairs. I am thinking that I would love one in ink blue (I have this color on the brain, as I am working on a ink blue wedding board)! What about you?

I love all of Elizabeth Dye's pieces, but this one is particularly lovely. Those ruffles!

It IS a lovely bolero, but don't you think it's appeal is linked to the equally lovely eyelet lace bodice? The two fabric textures & colours, coupled with the simple line of the boddace and the sweet ruffles of the bolero are - to me -what "make" this beautiful look!

The texture of that photo is exquisite. from her hair to the bolero to the wallpaper. I would buy that bolero in a second if I wasn't built like a linebacker.

beautiful. i like it in ivory. it's all about the design with this piece, so i think i'd prefer a mute color.

I love boleros so much, I have a couple coming out in my new line. I think they are a great alternative to sweaters and jackets--something fun to liven things up a little.

Ink blue sounds wonderful!

Was looking at this very same bolero today as well and very nearly purchased it. Completely lovely.

I really enjoy this piece in ivory but I'd be into checking it out in other colours. I wonder how a dark black or navy would work. It would be a completely different look.

Blair, I don't know if I've said it already but I love the new look.
