With New York Fashion Week only a few days away, I took it upon myself to get inspired and challenge my wardrobe. I attempted to pull my own version of the “Carrie Bradshaw” by putting together pieces that I would not naturally gravitate towards pairing together, but somehow just come together in an unconventional manner.
I am wearing a mustard heavy weight metallic Gilet with puffy sleeves. I pair it in an alternative manner with a cream pleated high waist A-line skirt and suede peep-toe booties creating an effortless easy day or night-out-in-town look.
The luminous metallic fabric of the Gilet definitely makes it the statement piece and ideal to pair with my ethnic ‘Lapiz Lazuli’, semi-precious, blue stone necklace from Afghanistan. The vibrant colors all compliment each other dreamily in addition to the pop of scarlet red lipstick – Mac’s renowned “Ruby Woo”. I finish off the look with a straw weaved messenger bag to play off the semi organic feel of the look.
