For today's layered look, I chose to let the collar and cuffs of my BDG polka dot oxford shirt peek out from underneath a bold red sweaterPolka dots dots add cheer to any fall outfit, which is definitely something we need on gloomy, cold, rainy days in Seattle!  They look equally cute on a collared shirt underneath your sweater as they do on your sweater itself.


 This ring is also very special to me because my parents picked it out for me on a recent vacation.  I had not heard of the brand, Bijoulee, prior to receiving this gift, but they have very unique, patent-pending designs.  You purchase a ring base of your choice, and then the top of the ring is interchangeable!  I am a huge fan of large cocktail rings, and I think this is such a cool idea!  The link to the main page of the site, if you want to check it out, is:  http://www.bijoulee.com/index.htm
