This season I invested in a series of cream and neutral garments of varying textures- they all layer very well together.
Over the weekend I stopped into Last Call just in time for them to receive a huge shipment of Lanvin! I tried on shoes and jewelry from the case and after a long internal debate, ended up with this Lanvin Necklace- my first!
Mine was heavily discounted (to about $270) and I walked away with the only one; however, Nordstrom still has it online incase you are not a scavenger/honey badger, like myself.
This is one of the few direct-from-the-runways looks that is realistic for a real girl. The price is not too bad for a runway look (about $500 for both pieces) but both the Marc by Marc Jacobs top and skirt can be worn separately to create other looks.
This look goes from work to cocktails to the Mavs game; it is perfect for travel because it is venue-agnostic, chic for all occasions.
The reason it works: mixing textures. My cotton trench dress (thanks, Mom) is a nice contrast to the snakeskin booties and patent bag. This theory works in your wardrobe and in your home- just remember, texture.
Do you remember when Kourtney Kardashian wore a gold leaf headband to a fashion show last year? I liked the headband (not so much her in it).
This year, during NYFW, my friend, Karen, shot the most etherial photo backstage at the Rodarte show: a porcelain model wearing a starry hair clip
I think they say it takes seeing something two-three times before you act on it and Rodarte was the last straw- I invested in a grecian adornment of my own.
