Yesterday was my last full day of fashion week and I decided to go out with a bang. I wore a black dress to the Harper’s Bazaar
breakfast but when everyone else went off to Michael Kors show, I decided to go shopping for a new afternoon outfit. I headed over to the J.Crew
Collection store on Madison Avenue at 66th Street, my home away from home. I found a bunch a great things but decided on these green brocade pants. The outfit I threw together was very different for me but fashion week is definitely not the time to be a wallflower.
Collection Cafe Capri Pants in Jade Jacquard
– After buying these pants, I ran home and stitch witcheried the hem which my tailor is going to have to now fix. For day they looked good with the blue shirt and I also bought a black cashmere crewneck to wear with them with it gets cooler. I also plan to wear them to Amanda Nisbet’s book party next week with a black blouse and tuxedo jacket and heels.
J.Crew Leopard Calf Hair Belt
– I would never wear a leopard belt with jacquard pants usually but it seemed appropriate for fashion week to step outside my comfort zone.
Roger Vivier Thong Sandals
– My feet could not do heels one more day so I wore my favorite flat sandals. The best thing about the shows in September is that everyone is wearing flat sandals. Many of you asked about these sandals the last time I posted them. They aren’t online but if you call one of the stores, they can help you.
Hermes Birkin – My bag was purchased vintage from an estate sale.
Tassle Necklace – I made this myself with a tassle from a vintage necklace and another long chain I had in my jewelry box.
Lanvin Bracelets – I bought these in Paris years ago. I wish they made they again because everyone loves them.
The Branch Green Ring – Green, gold and wood that I bought at Treillage always garners compliments.
Lookmatic Glasses – I worse glasses to hide the bags under my eyes.
Estee Lauder Violet Electra Lipstick – Nothing like a bright lipstick to make you look and feel more alive.
If you’re a long time reader, you know this is the way I like to post my outfits. Some of you keep asking me to take photos of me wearing the outfits. I’m not a fashion blogger nor do I want to compete with girls who are 22 or a size 2 so please stop asking me.
