Fall Transition Look: Quilted Leather Skirt (Part 2)

The second part of this quilted faux leather skirt look is live! This time I made it more “school girl” by pairing it with a silk DVF blouse with a big black detachable pussy bow (trend alert!) and ankle length black lace up booties. I love a dramatic black and white look! I went with a low sleek ponytail, a dark berry lip by Stila, and dark nail polish (“Wicked” by Essie). It felt like a very fall shoot, in a few of my favorite West Village spots! I love looking at all of the West Village homes that have been decorated for Halloween.

Another Halloween inspired post to come! It will be a fun one…

Graduation Guest: Jeweled Shift Dress

My sister graduated from medical school today (so proud!) and the below are a few pics of the outfit I wore to the graduation. I chose this kelly green shift dress because it’s springy, conservative for a family-friendly event, festive, and a shift dress that can be worn from work to a cocktail party. I love the jeweled studded design that decorates the front of this dress. Green is one of my favorite colors to wear. I paired the dress with quiet pink pearl dangly earrings, and new favorite shoes I will be wearing all summer: block-heeled strappy sandals (trend alert)!

Leather Leggings, Quilted Coat & Wedge Sneakers

This Saturday it was chilly but sunny, so I wore my favorite practical fall coat that I could get away with. It’s black, quilted, has a hood, hits mid-thigh and my favorite part are the thumb loops (very edgy!). I paired my coat with a whimsical DVF reversible black and red lip print scarf, pleather leggings, wedge sneakers, and big sunglasses. I have been crushing on leather pants / leggings for a few months now, and the insides of these ones are fleece! I love the ankle zipper detail, too. The sneakers- I have always liked wedge sneakers. They are very polarizing, people either love them or hate them! I had my eye on these Isabel Marant velcro “downtown” edgy sneakers. The neutral color pairs with nearly everything, and they are very comfortable.

This outfit must have been good luck, because on our walk to SoHo we saw ASAP Rocky!
