Style Crazed: FWSD14 – Night 5

This is the last of my Fashion Week San Diego 2014 breakdowns. Please don’t be too devastated ;)

Style Crazed: FWSD14 - Night 5

Glasses: Andrews Optical / Pearls: Zhulia / Top: Vintage / Handbad: Kate Spade New York / Pants: Victoria’s Secret / Pumps: Rebecca Minkoff via Saks Off 5th

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.

The whimsical/fabulous dress you see below made my eyes go WOWZER! Dulce Alexandra = you are perfection. This might just need to be my OMA Museum Ball dress next year!

I’m not usually one for pant suits, but this patterned number by BJASHI drove me wild! PLUS, the accessories were fun too.

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 :)

I still cannot believe FWSD 2014 is over! I had an absolute blast and look forward to attending this entire shindig again next year. Now, back to your regularly scheduled blog postings . . .
