Booby Kate Spade for Work v. 2

I didn't want to do a layered cami look, so I went with something a bit more intentional, while staying true to the shape of the dress.

I love the navy, red and black mix, although mustard and maroon would be pretty too!

Does this negate the booby-ness?

    Totally. Well played.

  • replied 4 years ago

    Yep, that makes it work for work!

  • annagybe replied 4 years ago

    I don't think the belt works, at all.
    I do like the blouse layered under though.

  • deb replied 4 years ago

    This totally works!

  • El Cee replied 4 years ago

    Yes… it works well (to my eye). The red/navy/black combo is, indeed, very nice.

  • Diana replied 4 years ago

    The layered blouse is perfect!

  • Alassë replied 4 years ago

    Yes. Totally! Can't wait to see the other combos.

  • rabbit replied 4 years ago

    the blouse under the dress works well!  It took me a minute to even remember that the dress didn't already have this neckline.

  • unfrumped replied 4 years ago

    I do like the drapey collar camoflage.
    Does it require a belt, or can you just rely on the fit and flare and wear it without interrupting the print?

  • AviaMariah replied 4 years ago

    I have to admit when I saw you were trying to make it work appropriate I though no way but I love your black/white/red version.  So pretty!

  • Emily replied 4 years ago

    Before I read Claudia's response I thought exactly the same thing: Well played"!  The top looks like the perfect layering choice.

  • carter replied 4 years ago

    Looks good for work or meeting the boy's parents. Stick with just the dress for date night!

  • viva replied 4 years ago

    Aren't you the clever girl????? Love!

  • lyn* replied 4 years ago


    Nope, I don't need to wear a belt with it at all, it's beautifully tailored. I can actually get by with some less supportive bras too with this dress. It's so twirly and fun.


    Glad you all think it works here; I think it could work with a dotty shirt too, but we'll just have to see :)

  • fuzzylogic replied 4 years ago

    Nicely layered, lyn!

  • Karie replied 4 years ago

    Gorgeous! How about a solid color belt? Navy, red, and black is a great color combo.

  • E replied 4 years ago

    Nice! It looks completely natural with the blouse & work appropriate too. :)

  • rae replied 4 years ago

    that looks perfect! i had to take a moment and remember what the booby issue was after seeing this.

  • Kristin L replied 4 years ago

    I think it works great. I bet it would look great with the dotty blouse like you suggested.

  • alee replied 4 years ago

    Love it! You are so clever. I love your ability to mix and try different things. Inspirational. Love the topper. If I wanted a belted (not needed) I would go with a thin one. I know I've seen it before one your pictures.

  • replied 4 years ago

    Looks great! If you do want to belt it how about a narrow navy or black one?

  • qfbrenda replied 4 years ago

    I don't care for the belt but the blouse underneath looks great! 

  • rachylou replied 4 years ago

    Well done! I think the belt is ok, just quirky.

  • Mia replied 4 years ago

    Hard to tell about the belt.  I think you could leave it off.  This is very clever girl!  I like how you are going to extend the wear of this piece.

  • lyn* replied 4 years ago

    Lol, all about cost per wear :)

    I can try a thin black belt; I am hunting for a black patent now belt which I think would work too!

  • pil replied 4 years ago

    Excellent solution!
