To me, this look is so New York- possibly my favorite of the season. I picture Olivia Palermo throwing some serious attitude in these Chloe retro glasses.
My inspiration was a little bit Proenza, a little but Jill Stuart (in the good ole days) and a little bit Balmain. As we move into a more feminine era of small handbags and ladylike extras, this is a chic way to keep a little bit of a hard edge in the mix.
To lighten up my mens military coat, I threw on a Jill Stuart dress from more than 4 years ago. The ballerina skirt gives a bit of femininity to a seemingly masculine trend.
Try this Thakoon Addition dress from shopbop.com– it is on SALE for 50% off and shipping is FREE both ways. Every girl needs a dress like this in her wardrobe because it is a quality layering piece and a perfect canvas for a new bag and stilts.
The sunglasses ABSOLUTELY make the outfit here- kind of like a sexy 50’s army nurse. We found our Chloe sunnies on SALE at Neimans Last Call, but these Marc by Marc Jacobs Retro Sunglasses are only $98, the perfect shape and not cliche.
To bring a bit of texture to this look, I wore the Erin pave necklace, Dash bracelets and a few Rough bangles. The idea is mixing in a bit of global glamour with inspiration from Mumbai while keeping the entire look high-end. This bling looks like a million bucks.
