I’m going shopping for yet ANOTHER first date ensemble ( I know I shouldn’t complain, 99 times out of a 100 I have a good time, besides it’s great blog fodder), and don’t have a lot of time, or for that matter energy (it’s been quite the full week), so I decided to breeze into two of my favorite stores – Barneys (in LA you must ask for personal shopper Michelle Goodman) and Zara. Two stores where no matter what I can find something I simply love (a lot).
Zara’s cigarette jeans, a slim fitting boyfriend jean, paired with their tunic length sweater with side slits, also slim fitting, keeps this casual look sleek and sexy. Christian Louboutin’s cheetah print kitten heel D’orsay pumps (alternate reality here) lend the look a bit of wild fun. I’ll be wearing my Chanel 2.55 bag (so as not to spend to much $) but if I could I’d pop for BNY’s burgandy fold over clutch. Love its simplicity and rich burgundy hue.
Looking for a more feminine look, opt for Zara’s olive green faux leather pleated skirt worn with their gold and cornflower blue print blouse. Together their a smooth blend of colors. Add a touch of rock ‘n roll by the master in rock tinged clothing, Heidi Slimane for Saint Laurent, with their studded cat ankle boot, or an alternative reality in BNY’s ankle boot. (The blouse also looks great with the above jeans and the SL boots.) If your feeling adventurous introduce another color into the palette with the above burgundy BNY clutch, or splurge on Zagliani Capriccio Python Clutch.
Wish me luck on my latest date adventure!
