Claire’s Life: Dinner with Dee & Ricky
By Claire

Happy Friday!
So yesterday I was invited to a super secret dinner in Brooklyn hosted by twin design duo Dee & Ricky.

For the occasion, I decided to try my hand at mixing prints. I’d been eyeing this pair of Miu Miu gingham taffeta slingbacks since Solange first wore them, and was super juiced when I found them on sale at Jeffrey’s when I was down in Atlanta for the Style Bloggers of Color Conference.

And while my first inclination was to pair the shoes with, say, a safe solid white or blue dress, I resisted said urge and slipped on a Kenzo Spring Summer 2012 patterned shoulder detail dress. Between you and I, I can’t get enough Kenzo (you might remember, I wore one of the line’s pieces to interview Wendy Williams). Perhaps it was their stunning, all black Spring 2012 campaign…?

At any rate, I broke up the patterns with a white oversized Harper clutch by Diane von Furstenberg, then hit the town.

What do you think?
I was able to steal a few Iphone pictures of the event, which was chock full of fun people like Wendell Lissimore, Shaun Ross, Briana Bigham, and of course Dee & Ricky themselves:

It was a fun night!
At any rate, thoughts on my latest look?

  8. KIMBERLY says:

    You look fab. You were right with pairing the shoes with the pattern dress. They both compliment each other very well. I think a plain dress would not have did the shoes justice….LOVE IT….P.S. the clutch is to die for….

  9. Sarah J says:

    Cute! you look Fabulous!! love the mixing of the shoes and dress its nice to think out the ordinary :)

  10. I don’t love the fit of the dress on you but you did a great job pattern mixing. TBH i never liked those shoes until YOU wore them…hmm..wonder if there are any pairs left with the designer shoe sale?

    Thanks for showing us that breaking out of your comfort zone can work.

  19. Sharri says:

    You look HAUTE mammy

  20. lolodoll11 says:

    Cute look Claire!

  21. I love the pattern mixing and think you did a fab job on that! I unfortunately dont think that the fit of that dress does much for your figure. I dont know much but I just think it makes you look bigger than you are and takes away from your fab figure!

    Id love to see you in more skater and a line silhouettes that draw away from your top half and balances you out a tad more. Just constructive feedback because we all love to have that I hope…. otherwise still LOVE the mixing!


  22. Izhause says:

    You look pretty as usual. I love the dress ,and the shoes.

  23. I love the pattern mixing! But I unfortunately do not love the fit of the dress with your body shape. You have a fab figure but I dont think the cut did anything for you. Id lvoe to see you in a fuller skirt or maybe skater type fit to balance it out. Otherwise as always you are beyond amazing and keeping rocking out!

  24. jillibooboo says:

    lookin’ good claire! you lost some weight?

  25. Ash says:

    YOU…LOOK…FAB Claire..Love the shoes and Dress!

  26. Siyam says:

    Before I even read the article, Claire girl, those gingham Miu Mius are my favorite shoe that you own and I wish I had some like those. They look amazing on you!

  27. Siyam says:

    Now that I’ve read it: love the mixing of prints. That’s a really cool look and I like the way you’ve paired the two. I’m inspired to try my hand at it.

  28. The pattern mixing is great here! Former Bombshell’s take note! On the other hand, I do see what other people mean about the fit of the dress. The length and fit are good, but the girls are big and there’s not much that can be done about that.

  29. Jameca says:

    Love it! You look nice :)

  30. dyshaun says:

    The fit is FINE! It looks great. Oh my god w o m e n. grrr

    I just got three cosigns on the fit, Claire…two dude engineers and an IT guy.

    Keep on keeping on, Claire. Thumbs up on this personal style challenge! Try your gingham print with a tonal flower prints as well.. Rachel Zoe style.

  31. dyshaun says:

    Forgot to mention, I love the use of the clutch..is it tasseled as well? <3

  32. fearless pattern mixing– j’adore! those shoes are perfection :-)

  33. Kia says:

    You look great….fashion risk that you pulled off.

  34. Bhud says:

    But who is the gentleman in the patterned polo and smiley face shorts??? And where can I find him and that shirt???

  35. D says:

    very nice, but no jewelry required with a dress and shoes that have such bold pattern- would have liked to have seen your hair up too!

  36. TheFav1 says:

    I’ve been waiting for you to wear those shoes! I’ve the mix; glad you rocked it out! I wanted this shoes for awhile myself :)

  37. yusufswifee says:

    Omg – claires looks fine. Not everyone can be a A or B cup.:-)

    What’s more important is proper bra size/fit and a small waist. WERK IT!!!

  38. Indigo says:

    @yusufswifee I didn’t know A or B cup was the standard size. Not everyone can be a full cup ; )

  39. SKEYS says:

    I’m inspired! I am a very safe “fashionista” (oxymoronic, I know). But I am definitely going to venture out into print mixing.


  40. MsA says:

    You look great (I’m sure even better in person) and whoever dude in the second to last pic is-DAMN. Straight or not, he’s sexy.

  41. Miss White says:

    You “shut it down”! *Rachel Zoe voice*

  42. dyshaun says:

    Not everyone can be a full cup ; ) <—-W O R D!!!

  43. lola says:

    Claire girl, your body is THE TRUTH and Wendell and those fine ass lips can GET IT, ANYTIME, ANY PLACE, ANYWHERE. That is all.

  44. mak says:

    you look great! i love the pattern mixing.

  45. binks says:

    Don’t really care for the shoes but you still look great Claire.

  46. I like the look, although, Claire I don’t think its complete. I would have appreciated maybe a geometric style status neck piece. The white bag doesn’t really work for me. What’s screaming at me is the color yellow, so maybe a large status geometric style necklace with white and yellow. Then you could have incorporated that yellow w/ a clutch. The dress and shoes are both hot. But because of the lack of proper accessorizing it fall flat when I think of a fashion journalist.

  47. Z says:

    You look fabUlous!!!

  48. Claire says:

    Hey! Thanks for coming along with me on my journey to take more fashionable risks! Duly noted with the silhouette. I tend to cling to pencil skirts, etc, but will try out some A-lines–why not? Thanks again for your support, have fab weekends Bombers and Bombshells. xoxo
