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.

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.
