For the Finale Runway Night, my style inspiration was the lady of ladies herself = Coco Chanel. Why? Well, for one, she was always flawless in her fashion. And two, Night 5 was all about gowns, jewels, the avant-garde,and couture ― everything Coco embodied! Thus, I reached in my closet for this vintage piece my friend gave me years ago [it’s an oldie but a goodie] paired it with winter white, tuxedo pants, and called in a favor for some “loaner” pearls from my gal pal, Zhulia. The rest was easy! I played off the top’s glitzy tones, coordinating its brown hues with my frames and its yellow shine with my handbag. I completely lucked out with my shoes! They were already in my closet and just happened to match it exactly! As a result, my entire ensemble harmonized with the theme effortlessly and THAT made this #stylecrazed blogger VERY happy. On a different high note, let’s talk about the catwalk! I really believe a woman can never have too many sheath dresses, ESPECIALLY when they are by Salwa Owens. I love how the embroidery has a resemblance to the current Altuzarra line at Target and yet has an overall feel that is completely its own in placement and design.
I have long admired Jessica Faulkner‘s work but have yet to make a purchase. That’s about to change! I must have this two-piece short ensemble! It’s unique, short, and feminine. If only it came with the umbrella too :)
