WHBM Dress | Vera Wang Trench | Kate Spade Wallet | J. Crew Earrings | Via Spiga Heels (Similar)

Fancy a cocktail at lunch? I came across the most beautiful cocktail dress the other day: a gold shift with jacquard detailing and jeweled collar. The attention to detail and quality of this dress is incomparable. The gold jacquard flickers every moment it catches the light, giving the dress an almost ethereal look.

A dress as glamourous as this has to be shown off! Whether it’s at a business lunch or a fancy dinner date, this dress will definitely turn heads! To complement the shimmer of the gold, I decided to pair the dress with a deep royal purple satin trench. The two pieces work together seamlessly to create a classic and elegant look.

With such a statement dress and coat, I kept my accessories very simple: a pair of silver statement earrings to match the jeweled collar, my staple gold wallet, and a pair of peep-toe gold heels.

Voila! Happy styling fashionistas,

Flowy Capes & Jewel Details

image

Hello fall! It’s finally starting to feel like autumn, with the weather getting colder and leaves starting to change color…which means I can shamelessly wear all the cape jackets I want and watch it catch the wind amongst its folds and billow away…(with a caramel salted mocha in hand of course <3)

I have been waiting for a good month now for the weather to get colder so that I could style this gorgeous cape. To emulate autumn, I paired the cape with a vibrant, mustard-yellow pants

image

Capes are making their way back in style—and why not? This essential fall outerwear piece can add “upper east side” charm to any outfit, giving the overall look a nice, classic finish

image

Making sure that I didn’t draw attention away from the cape or the vibrant pants, I kept my accessories simple—a black clutch with gold detailing and of course, my hot salted caramel mocha

I decided to layer a navy blue crew cut shirt with jewel detailing with a white jeweled collar shirt underneath the jacket to add a little sparkle and shine.

image

These jewel tones plus the jewel detailing is perfect for a more dressy occasion, not just for a casual stroll around Gramercy Park…(perhaps there will soon be a day to night occasions look)…

Finally, to finish off this look, I chose to pair my black patent, almond toe pumps—because these are always my go-to shoes for a slightly dressy, but not as formal, look.
