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?
