A New Perspective

stilettosandsubstance.comThis week’s style post highlights the idea of mixing and matching your previously owned fashion pieces. Dedicating a few extra minutes to our daily outfit choosing routine can go a long way resulting in fun new outfit combos. We all have that specific top and pants that we religiously pair together that we now can approach with a fresh new styling perspective.

Here I am rocking a grey peter pan collared button up top that I purchased from Asos a while back. I am pairing it alternatively with silky harem black and beige striped pants from American Apparel. This new outfit combo created a new day-to-night look mostly with the addition of the harem pants to a top that I usually wear with my black high waisted skinny pants as corporate attire.

With a neutral toned outfit there’s nothing better than to compliment it by adding a pop of colorful accessorizing. I accessorize the neutral grays and yellows with a scarlet red statement shoe by Marc by Marc. The statement show consists of golden buttons and chunky gold and red striped heel, which is my favorite element of the shoe.

I accessorize adventurously by layering many necklaces of different textures, lengths and shades for no reason whatsoever. Lastly I throw on my trademark Marc by Marc “clearly” bag, which has a vinyl panel on the front exposing the inner leather compartments of the bag. There’s an element of excitement that comes with rocking vinyl clear bags and exposing the inner workings of your life– an amusement i attained at a very early age ever since my first clear vinyl backpack with the legendary purple zippers… in Kindergarten.

Shift Dress Ready

Stilettosandsubstance.com

This week features a day-to-night-look. A simple outfit of the day that can be carried forth to summer night-time endeavors.

I am wearing a purple v-neck kimono-sleeved shift dress from Asos. This piece is an easy comfortable throw on and constitutes a silhouette that is flattering to many different female forms. I accessorize with a chunky necklace that put together a few years back. I bought the fluffy wool pendant from a jewelry booth during London Fashion Weekend and found beads to pair it with from the Boston bead factory.

Simplicity is the key with this look as the dress color is the main visual stimulant. The remaining accessorizing process is remained at a minimal with white a white leather Messenger from Ted Baker and white wedges from Kurt Geiger.
