Wardrobe Wednesday

The Flat Life

01.28.15 | Permalink | Comment?

Renee is wearing a Beanie c/o Hat & Dreams, Adrienne Landau Vest, BCBG Max Azria Coat, Uniqlo Cashmere Sweater, Zara Faux Leather Leggings, Chanel Oxfords, Saint Laurent Duffel Bag.

I have more pairs of heels than I care to admit. Black pumps, multiple versions of the heeled bootie, chunky heeled sandals, the list goes on. But this season I’ve really been focusing on growing my flat collection. With the sneaker trend going strong, I see no harm in being comfortable while running around in this freezing weather! These Chanel oxfords are the newest addition to my collection. They have the perfect masculine silhouette with feminine touches like the patent leather details and slightly raised heel. I haven’t been able to stop wearing them!

A Little Bit Wild on Park

Rebecca is wearing a Vintage Armani Collezioni Coat, Zara Faux Leather Pants, Vintage Saks Fifth Avenue Mink Hat, Suzanne Arata Half Mitts, The Row Python Classic Baguette Clutch, and Givenchy Eel Booties.
There’s nothing like turning a prim and proper Park Avenue appropriate outfit just a little bit wild with some pops of leather, fur, and exotics. My favorite? Pairing a vintage coat with these crazy Givenchy runway booties. The banana heel is so unexpected (and quite comfortable!) and the cool texture adds some interest to an otherwise all black look. I know it’s very American of me to glam up my ready-to-wear using accessories, but I think it works well when you have a habit of owning the most ridiculous shoes and bags. It’s a running joke between Renee and me—I don’t have many “simple black pump” options, but somehow have two pairs of green satin stiletto heels.

A Glam Winter’s Bridesmaid

Clockwise from left: Weddington Way Dessy 2894 Dress in Charcoal Gray $264, Bijoux Heart Swarovski Crystal Ear Cuffs $525 each, Edie Parker Jean Faceted Clutch $1595, Gucci Beauty Mono Shadow in 160 Anthracite $37, Gucci Beige Crystal D’Orsay Heels $1650, Nektar De Stagni Smiley Face Ring $430, Tom Ford Lipstick in Bruised Plum $50.
I am officially the maid of honor at my cousin’s upcoming wedding this late summer, which means chic pink, pink, pink bridesmaids! Should I have gotten the job for a winter wedding, on the other hand, I think a gray glam winter wonderland theme would have been perfection. Gray, it seems, has become the go-to color for snow-bound nuptials. Instead of going for a basic silver pump and some iced out silver jewelry, opt for some glamorous tones to liven the look up. Start with this gorgeous Weddington Way bridesmaid dress and add in a Swarovski crystal-covered heel. Then balance the nearly off-the-shoulder gathered straps with statement colored stone ear cuffs and break up the gray with an Edie Parker clutch (the most solid dressy bag standby these days!). Once you’ve added a fun metallic eye, finish the look off with a Tom Ford bold lip and don’t look back! What is it about a winter wonderland full of cold and snow that gives way to such a fabulous amount of GLAM?

The Bears!

Renee is wearing a Fur Hat c/o Jocelyn, Helmut Lang Coat, Emporio Armani Turtleneck Sweater, Rag & Bone Jeans, Marc Jacobs Vegas Bag, Giuseppe Zanotti Combat Boots.

There’s a serious cold front hitting New York, and it’s making me want to stay inside every day, curled up in bed. When I finally get myself out the door, I definitely depend on this Helmut Lang coat and Jocelyn hat to keep me warm (plus a pair of Uniqlo heattech leggings underneath my jeans—trust me, they are a must buy). The little bear ears on the Jocelyn hat add an instant cute factor to every outfit—much needed in this dreary weather! I threw these on when heading out the door for a quick trek through Central Park with Rebecca last weekend. The ice and snow were keeping the usual crowds away, but it was a gorgeous winter wonderland in the park. Very much worth facing the freezing temps!

Super Holiday Swag

Clockwise from left: Mini Daenerys Targaryen Doll, Kitty Winestopper, Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Eyeshadow in Emerveille, Handmade Mittens, Garance Dore for Rifle Paper Co. Friends Social Stationary.
This Christmas I got some very chic (and worldy) accessories to wear for upcoming Wardrobe Wednesdays: fabulous handmade mittens from my mother using yarn she saved from a trip to Egypt more than 30 years ago(!) and a fabulous scarf direct from my friend Amanda’s recent trip to the Middle East. To top it off, she also gave me a Chanel eyeshadow in my favorite eyeshadow color—pink! Basically nothing gets past Amanda when it comes to makeup. Thoughtfully, she decided to get me something I would actually use. Lately I have had a good luck streak when it comes to holiday gifts—most everyone has given me something that I already needed, wanted, or were pining for. A kitty-shaped wine stopper? Extremely useful, thanks mom! Gorgeous new stationary to write my distant friends across the country? Totes useful, thanks Renee! A mini Daenerys Targaryen doll? Perhaps not the most useful, but definitely necessary for my desk.
