Today I want to talk about some of the fancier stuff I saw. I won’t go into gowns, but cocktail dresses, work appropriate dresses, etc.
This look is by Jill Sander. I love this top, but I don’t think I could wear it in the same way, due to not weighing <100lbs. The skirt would be pretty versatile as well as the shoes, but overall I thought it was styled well. Less is definitely more, here.
Confession: I would murder someone for this dress. This dress by Erdum is probably my favorite of all of the looks I’m going to show you. I’m not entirely sure I could pull off that color, but who the hell cares. Gaaah.
Oh, Valentino. Your romantic looks just… sigh. This one is correct. I almost wish the shoes were a different texture instead of what looks like plain ‘ol leather… maybe they tried patent and it failed.
This dress by Bottega Veneta is gorgeous. Again, it’s extremely versatile. I’ve been keeping my eyes open for dresses like these, ones that can be worn to weddings, cocktail parties, even weddings. They are well worth the money, especially when you aren’t a celebrity who refuses to wear the same thing twice. This styling here is… not my thing, but I get it for the runway.
This first thing I thought when I saw this dress by Calvin Klein is “Kate Middleton Gone Wild!” I definitely wouldn’t pair it with that silver belt… it kind of screams traffic cone, but I do love the dress. I would do blue… tiffany or navy, perhaps?
Uhh… I think this is a dress? The quilting is very coat-like but eh. Anyway, I freaking love it, whatever it is. Also, the styling here is gorgeous; everything is perfect. Can I be styled this way all the time? Pretty please?
Another look by Rodarte, another love. The boots here are perfect, and the hair gives it just enough playfulness and youth as to not look old or frumpy. The uneven hemline helps there, too. And another versatile look!
Stay tuned for some great retail pieces I might pick up once my year of shopping is over!
