Purple People EaterOutfit Of The Day: 06.23.2009

Normally, I don’t start with footwear first when it comes to my dressing-up habits, but – today, I could not resist these sumptuous deep fuchsia suede-leather three-quarter length Halston boots. And, then… Do you know what happened? A purple hue overdose!

I didn’t want to add-on a lot of things, because – in my opinion, the color itself is a bold statement fashion-wise. That is why I have opted for a cocktail dress featuring a cartoon-like image of a poppy flower, designed by Vivienne Tam – pairing it up with an evening bag of the same color. To inject just a tiny dose of rock-and-roll into this outfit, I used the studded Erickson Beamon cuff and a crystal wrap Kim Alessi bracelet in Black Lizard.

Is there such thing as too much purple?


In The Trenches

In The TrenchesOutfit Of The Day: 06.22.2009

As soon as I got out of bed this morning, I couldn’t help but notice the sound of a heavy rainstorm… It was literally ‘raining cats and dogs‘! So, I said to myself – hey, why don’t you take rain as an inspiration? That is how I decided to use a trench coat… or some form of it, I guess. And, where do we go for the latest on rain wear?

One could clearly see my inspiration from Christopher Bailey’s Burberry Prorsum Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear collection, which I have tried to achieve using the following garments: taupe Elizabeth and James trench dress (on sale on Net-a-Porter.com), cropped cotton dress jacket by Philosophy by Alberta Ferretti, Mary-Kate and Ashley peep-toe oxford heels and a DKNY cement-colored floppy hat as shown on the runway.

Are you only happy when it rains?

La Vie En Beret

La Vie En BeretOutfit Of The Day: 06.21.2009

I never imagined that I would be saying ‘Thank you!’ to Miley Cyrus, but – today, I am for this adorable black-and-white free ‘Hannah Montana’ dress. If anyone can identify the dress, please let me know. To enhance the femininity of the look, I paired the dress with this rather simple white bolero and a pair of timeless ballet flats (definitely, a city essential!).

Never forget the importance of a great accessory such as this DKNY solid-yellow tassel scarf, just drape it around your shoulders! As ‘the cherry on top’, I decided to put this black beret to give a Parisian whiff to the outfit.

What did you think of ‘Slap Her… She’s French’?

Lanvin Dichotomy

Lanvin Dichotomy Outfit Of The Day: 06.20.2009

Why I decided to wear this exact outfit? Hmm… It is clearly a no-brainer, it is Lanvin! I tried to recreate the exact bi-colored runway look, but – still updating it with a few things of my own, such as: the DKNY headband, a pair of earrings and a necklace from the Heidi Klum Jewelry Collection, a simple black belt reminiscent to the one used in the runway look and a pair of black platform peep toe pumps to compensate for my height, or should I say ‘lack’ of it.

As a final touch, I decided to show off my wild side by means of this exotic alligator clutch designed by former Allure editor and Vogue stylist, handbag designer Alexandra Knight.

 Can you wear navy and black together?
