Black and White and Red Lipstick

Outfit details: Pink Tartan dress (similar here and here), Zara jacket (old), Valentino shoes, Balenciaga bag, Hermés bangles, Tom Ford lipstick in scarlet rouge

Sometimes simple black and white just does the trick especially in an easy to wear fit and flare dress. Fit and flare is one of my favorite shapes and the stretchy material of this dress makes it comfy too. But I couldn't leave it at just black and white so I added a swipe of red lipstick from Tom Ford.


This or That :: Black and White


Marchesa Voyage dress ($495)

Alexander McQueen dress ($2695)

I had pinned this Alexander McQueen dress some time ago. I was always under the impression that McQueen ran small so assumed nothing would fit me. But on a jaunt to Bergdorf Goodman a couple of months ago during the major sales, I tried on a few dresses and realized that I was wrong. Since I love this fit and flare shape so much, especially in a knit, I've now got my eye on this black and white dress. In some of my online trolling, I found this Marchesa Voyage dress that looked quite similar, I still prefer the McQueen version but for the price difference I think the Marchesa Voyage dress is just fab. What do you think?


Florals & White Denim

Outfit details: Equipment blouse (old but similar here), Joe's jeans, Chanel shoes, Fendi bag, Hermés belt

It's so hard to believe we are close to the end of August. We're in for a few summer like days this week after what felt like fall weather in August last week and I think I'll try to squeeze in the last of the summer clothes. That's just what a did a couple of Saturdays ago to run around for errands. 



Outfit details: Max Mara top, Talbot's leather skirt (ages old but similar here), Valentino shoes, Reed Krakoff bag, Hermés bracelet

I love the draping of this Max Mara top. Max Mara is one of those lines that is just so beautiful in its simplicity. Take a high quality fabric in a bright color and add a slit here and a drape there, and voila. This top was from the spring line and I've worn it a few different ways. Now that we're getting closer to fall, I paired it with a leather skirt that I pulled out of the recesses of my closet. 



Outfit details: Vince top, Lafayette 148 skirt, Chanel jacket, Valentino shoes, 3.1 Philip Lim bag (other crossbody bags here, here and here), Chanel necklace, Hermés bangles

One day I'm feeling all fall like and wearing darks and neutrals and the next I counter it with bright colors. One day last week, I pulled out this hot pink leather skirt and paired it with a bright blue jacket with specks of more pink
