So for Day 1 of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, I decided to play with color, pulling on my favorite J.Crew Blythe Silk Blouse in fetching purple:
I added a bit of contrast with an oversized orange clutch by Cashhimi:
Along with bright yellow patent leather pumps from Christian Louboutin (the heels are reasonable, so they’re not too much of a pain to walk in):
I anchored my multi-hued ensemble with a chocolate brown lace skirt from Zara, along with a vintage coat for warmth.
Your eyes are not deceiving you–I went bare legged. I somehow managed to shred through all my flesh toned hose, so had to go without. I won’t do that again. It was cold!
At any rate, as you all know, I like preppy, classic silhouettes, so love the idea of a button down and a pencil skirt. I tried to add some pizazz to my normal repertoire by working with various complementary colors and playing with texture.
How did I do?
Stay tuned for more of my outfits from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
