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.

Dress: 1950s Vintage Dress from Maison Jadis

Whenever you are in NYC, Soho area, make sure to stop by Maison Jadis! I absolutely love this store! It’s a goldmine for beautiful dresses, frocks, jumpsuits, pants, crop tops, shoes, handbags and more from the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, & 90s all in pristine condition! The only thing I loved more than the treasures in this store was the owner, Mary Ann Fusco! She’s extremely stylish, pleasant and knowledgeable about fashion – a Doll! I look forward to returning to her store and interviewing her soon to share with you all on the blog.

If you are unable to physically visit her at her amazing store stay up to date by using the following:

Dress: Alexander Wang

This dress has the “Mullet” effect. LOL! What I mean is… This dress is all business in the front and a party in the back – haha! I love that this dress is both a shift dress and tennis skirt combined into one! It’s both chic and sporty (and a little sexy too) – a perfect combination; which Alexander Wang does soooo well!

Shoes: Nike ID Huarache Sneaker

On Nike ID I was able to customize everything from the color to the embroidery on the back of the sneakers.

Handbag: Balenciaga Classic Mini Bag

My Year-Round ‘Go-to’ Bag! I am obsessed with all mini bags. They are much more comfortable and suitable for everyday use. I love the black suede version of this bag as well!

Frames: Tom Ford “Nikita” Cateye Sunglasses

I purchased these originally as sunglasses and decided later to have my optometrist convert them to transition optical frames so I could have the best of both worlds. If you are unable to find the “Nikita” style I recommend the “Anastasia” , also by Tom Ford.
