The "Dexter Morgan" top

Hello! I'm Jessica from Midwest Muse and today I'm styling up Katie's incredible vintage top. I was drawn to this piece because the print reminds me of Dexter Morgan and his blood spatters. Strange? Maybe. But I really love Dexter Morgan. So that's okay. This top fits Katie like a glove, but for me it was almost a dress. I wasn't sure how to dress it up, but I really loved the way the mint and turquoise played up the orange in the top. I really wanted to show of the peplum part, but I think it's safe to say that peplum is not for a short girl with no upper body.

How Katie wore it:

Katie's post is located here.


  1. It is always so fun to see how differently the same piece can be styled. Love both of your looks.

  2. I love the bold jacket that you paired it with! Perfect!

  3. YOu look gorgeous, love this outfit, especial colors of the first outfit!
    Have a happy time!

    Best wishes, Alex

  4. haha oh my god, that really does look dexter morgan-y, very good call! and i love how you restyled it, especially paired with the mint. and WHY don't i have red tights yet?! i'm almost ashamed to admit that....

    1. Once you have red tights -- you'll realize how many things it goes with!

  5. This top is so creepy and awesome, I looove it! Both styles are great, I would have never thought to pair it with mint, but it looks amazing

  6. This top is awesome, ha-ha but I can see why it reminds you of Dexter. I love how you and Katie styled it!


  7. Oh my goodness that is the best description of a top I have ever heard! And I love the way you both styled it! So cute!

  8. That is such an adorable top! Great styling to both you gals!


  9. Haha I would never have thought of Dexter on my own, but can see it! I love it with the minty skirt, both you gals have great style!

  12. tot wouldn't have thought to pair it w/ mint either & even more totally wouldnt have thought to pair red tights w/ it all. red and green can not look christmasy-wow AMAZING! no, i'm seriously though, I got some red tights I was thrilled that have just been sitting there. Anyway that top really is amazing, looks so awesome on you both!! And Jessica that is tot. your swap outfit blazer : )

  13. This is one of my favorite color palettes ever! Would you believe, after I initially saw that photo of you in Katie's top, I had to find similar pieces to mix together to create the same palette....LOVE it!
