Top: Vivienne Westwood

Pants: ICONS – “Objects of Devotion” Resurrected in Los Angeles – my top five favorite pants!

I also love this mechanic jumpsuit by the same designer.

Shoes: Dr. Martens – “Jadon” 8 Eye Boot

I’ve always loved and worn Dr. Martens but these with the platform sole are wicked!

Handbag: Phillip Lim

This top, pant, and shoes have been my ‘go to’ pieces this fall. You all probably know I’m a feign for denim shirts, jackets, and jumpers so when I tried this on at the Vivienne Westwood store on Melrose Ave. I had to have it – lol! The tailoring on this denim shirt is super feminine and the I like that they chose to do it in dark blue denim. This shirt can also be worn open as a jacket which made me love it eeeeven more because versatility is key! The pant worn in this post is a deconstructed, remixed, tailored vintage military pant that I purchased from Barney’s but you could easily make these yourself. Get a pair of military pants from the army surplus or second hand store and tailor these yourself or take them to your neighborhood tailor. The great thing about these pants is that they are baggy in the leg with a fitted high-waist, so you get both sexy feminine and tomboy all in one pant. I wear this pant paired with tees, tanks, and denim shirts in the fall with boots (as shown in this post) and in the summer with sandals (see below).

Dress: Halston Heritage

I kept it simple, in this silk faille tulip skirt dress, but chose to add a pop of color and sparkle for my dear cousin’s formal wedding in NYC. I love the fit of this Halston Heritage dress! I feel like a prima ballerina every time I put it on.

Own this dress here.

Rent it here.

Jacket: H&M

This jacket was the ultimate find! The large black round sequins and the heavy black fishnet material had me at first sight! I can’t wait to show off the multiple ways to style and wear this beautiful and affordable jacket! It’s such a great piece to play around with.

Shoes: Manolo Blahnik

The bright blue color of this shoe paired with the baby pink of the dress might at first seem a little unconventional… But “well-behaved women rarely make history” so when I first purchased the dress, I knew, before I even bought the shoes, that I wanted a bright colored shoe in the complete opposite hue and color of the dress.  This Manolo Blahnik “Hangisi” satin pump (you may recognize this shoe made famous on the “Sex in the City” movie) was the first and only shoe that popped into my mind! I had to have it to complete the vision that was stuck in my mind. And… If I don’t say so myself… I think if paired beautifully with the dress and jacket!

Don’t be afraid to take risks in life and in fashion, the end result will be well worth it! Become you’re own trendsetter.
