So, I loved my outfit for the Decade of Style party so much that I figured it deserved a post of its own! One of the things I like the most about fashion is just when you get the basics down, you’re expected to start taking some calculated risks.
Mismatched shoes to the Golden Globes? Um, no thank you.
But a romper in the middle of January? That one, I can work with.
You guys last saw this romper here, when I spent a Saturday in the middle of June laying on the floor of the gorgeous Gavin Brown Enterprise gallery. It was a bit of a challenge to make this same piece appropriate for a between-snowstorms February night where your fingers start to get frostbitten if you take off your gloves long enough to use the touchscreen on your iPod (sigh).
I picked up this belt and gorgeous Alexis Bittar bracelet at Intermix on super-sale after Christmas, but the real clincher of this outfit is the stunning bag that Brahmin sent me. My mom took one look at these photos and said that it reminds her of a Prada bag she bought last year, and to me it has that easy, structured Balenciaga feel, without the four-figure price tag.
I know I’m going to be carrying it nonstop during Fashion Week too — because it’s a lot easier to take some fashion risks when you’re perfectly accessorized. Not to mention, it’s big enough to hold my camera, kindle and a spare pair of ballet slippers!
