Style Diary: Mercedes Benz Spring 2013 Fashion Week Day 2
By Claire

While I opted for schoolgirl chic on Day 1, I felt Day 2 called for color!

The kind folks over at Rent the Runway were nice enough to send over a few dresses for me to flaunt during Fashion Week, and I was instantly drawn to Thakoon’s So Electrifying Dress (retail $990, rental $125):

I loved the hot pink color and the saucy peak of leg! The dress was a little racy for daytime, so I decided to tone it down a bit with a similarly vibrant yellow Theory Stretch Cotton blazer, and complete with a bold lime Proenza Schouler PS1, and neon orange Christian Louboutin wedges (at the end of the day, it’s all about comfort).

I’ve been playing around with a few different hairstyles for Fashion Week, so opted to pull my braids into a high pony to let the outfit play center stage.

A few swipes of MAC’s cremesheen glass lusher, richer gloss, and I was ready to take on the day!

What do you think?

    I have to admit, once again, you are totally my inspiration. I am taking courage to dye my hair but to a red tone, (dread locks) but instead i might first do some red box braids, its so hot right now (thanks Solange), Im going to try it out !!! Also love your style, you’re the best!!! Keep it up Claire!!!

  9. marguerite says:

  10. You look amazing Claire! Werk! xx

  11. Nice and Awesome!!! You may be an inspiration for those who thinks one can’t be stylish without having a so called “zero figure”. With a nice fit body one can be stylish and look great. Thanks for inspiring me.

  17. Tricia says:

    I’m kinda O.V.E.R. the neon colour-blocking, but I like each piece on its own.

  25. Lily says:

  26. Yes ma’am, Claire! You are working it all the way out!

  27. jbrizzy says:

    Claire, You give me life! That is all.

  28. Stevie says:

    You look gorgeous! I am in love with that dress and those shoes! :)

  29. omolola says:

    No, i am not loving this outfit on you. individually, the pieces are nice but together, they look quite misplaced

  30. Anonymous says:

    I was with you until I got to the orange shoes.

  31. yes says:

    yes yes and yes to the long hair.

    Claire, I know ur not a big fan of ‘non’ natural hair but your going in the right direction. Lookin fresh to go!!

  32. Mo_Sheri10 says:

    I think the split in your dress and cleavage is a bit much, maybe I’m a prude. You still look hot nonetheless. I love your braids!

  33. Tinu says:

    DAAAAAAAAAMMMMMNNNNN Claire, on a scale of 1-10 this is a 20. Go ‘head with your bad self

  34. Ladyvanilegance says:

    Claire, i must admit the outfit is quite refreshing, and i love the color of the blazer with the braids. I’m not a fan of the neon orange shoes though. At least not with this outfit. I probably would’ve tried electric blue or perhaps a pop of green. But ho–nn–eyyyy you are tonnned to the bone! You do pick rather amazing pieces that are perfect for your shape! So chic

  35. Syl says:

    Claire u look gorgeous!! I love it from head to toe

  36. Margo says:

    You. Are.Serving.The.Kids. You look Amazing Claire! Bravo…indeed!

  37. A. Kristin says:

    I think you look like a MILLION bucks! Agree with Ladyvanilegance on the color of the shoes, however every piece you selected flatters you perfectly.

  38. M1zzdlady says:

    Claire you look great, but you kill me with the shoes. A simple black pump like the pigalle louboutins would work rather nicely with this outfit. Even those white Alexander wang pumps you own could work. A+ on everything else. Your hair and the color, love it!

  39. Anonymous says:

    Claire you looked smashing. Love the entire look, especially the shoes, FAB!

  40. Bridgette says:

    WERK Ms. Claire! The entire look is fab (the braids are so much fun) but I especially like those tangerine wedges. See ya soon.

  41. 5ucTXHunny says:

    I think…I LOVE THE HAIR!!!

  43. Devon M says:

    That last photo is so cute! You look great Claire :)

  44. shazaim says:

    Converse shoes look great on guys and gals! Rob and Kristen (in happier times) are matching for this Vanity Fair photo shoot.

  45. Kory Conover says:

    You look amazing!

  46. ChrissyRoc says:

    Dress love .. Everything else no, I didn’t think the dress was too much & I would of liked it if you wore it solo w. a nice oversized clutch (nude,prints etc) .. & for comfort the shoes you had on is good

    Absolutely Flawless!!!!!!

    Perfection! x
