New Year, New Suit!

So how is your New Year going so far? Maybe you are trying to get a new job or start a business. Anyway, we all need that suit to dress to impress. I found this blue suit from Zara last year. It was chic and affordable, and to my knowledge didn’t rip off any specific designers. Yea I buy from Zara sometimes but you have to be careful with them. We all know fast fashion has a dark side and if you buy from them, you just need to be mindful of the lower cost production and designer knockoffs.

The suit seems to be sold out but I found these cropped blue Theory pants on sale at Farfetch and this Milly blazer on sale at Revolve. I paired my suit with a pair of blue vintage Giuseppe Zanotti pumps. Check out more photos below!

Wear These Blockbuster Premiere Charlotte Olympia Sandals on Your Next Movie Date

You might think they’re borderline cheesy but even if so, you’ve got to give it to Charlotte Olympia for her creativity with shoes! I really appreciate her tendency to think outside of the box and do something different.

I think these are great shoes for a summer movie date. Perhaps with some nice blue jeans (Nordstrom has a bunch on sale) and a blazer like this Helmut Lang Smoking Tux Blazer . Or a little black dress like this one from BCBG or this Blaque Label dress. Try these for an original look.

They’re available now at ModaOperandi for $845.

Loved Working in this Helmut Lang Suiting on My Birthday This Week

So it was a very long day but I still enjoyed my birthday this week! I worked all day, attended the Fashion Group International’s Ready to Wear Trend Presentation, got a mani and pedi at Bliss Spa and then shot to class at night. Despite the hectic schedule, I managed to enjoy my birthday thoroughly and it didn’t hurt that I was wearing some beautiful Helmut Lang harem suiting pants, a beautiful Helmut Lang off white with a tinge of orange blouse and an amazing bra that took the cake for design ingenuity! Thank you Helmut Lang, it was incredible to wear all day.

My Helmut Lang Work Outfit

I love clothes that are professional with an edge to break the monotony of the every day grey shift dress and black heels. Yes, unfortunately it is not quite ‘hot’ in New York City yet but Springtime is definitely here and I absolutely adore this ensemble from Helmut Lang. If you have a fairly see through top, pair it with this well-designed razer back Helmut Lang bra to have a different ‘bra strap’ effect. They also have a great dress with the same color story and some amazing exclusive runway shoes for sale that I have my eye on (shown above). I’m just loving the Spring Collection!
