I've made myself clear that I love Giovanna's style. So this morning I thought I'd try my hand at re-creating one of her looks.
I know. My version brought me out of color and back to black yet again but the play on textures makes it fun and interesting.
|Zara dress, St John jacket, Spanx tights, Tiziana handbag|
I grabbed this Zara dress that I've had for years. It's not just any old little black dress because it has this lovely pleating at the skirt. I topped the dress with my old faithful St. John jacket (you've seen it before here).
|Spanx lace tights, Me Too booties|
Then I threw on these Spanx lace tights and they are fantastic. I love fun tights but the Spanx ones are the best. I wore some fun Kate Spade tights recently (seen in the same post you saw the jacket above) and while I beyond adore just about anything from Kate Spade, their tights just don't measure up for me. The day I wore them I found myself constantly tugging at them. But the Spanx, oh they suck and tuck in all the right places (and I need that!).
You may want to try your hand at this too. Here are some similar items.
I have the white boucle Moschino jacket above on my wish list for Santa and it's way pricey. But the BCBG version above is much more reasonable ($168). By the way, in the short time since I bought the Me Too booties, I've worn them almost every day. Not only do I love the way they look, but they are quite comfortable even with all the trotting around town I do on my feet.
