DVF metallic jacket
Cynthia Steffe dress
Alexander McQueen box clutch (similar style here)
Vintage ring bracelet
Ellen Tracy tights
Thrifted belt

After drooling over the Mary Katranzou for Topshop collection and her recent LFW show, and with my recent hiatus on clothes shopping well-enforced, I was inspired to raid my closet and then Lauren's for anything print. The result was this stunning pairing that Lauren boldly wore out on our weekly "work was tough, let's imbibe" playdate--an all too frequent but none the less enjoyable occurrence.

I'm not even a print fan. In fact, it's been like dragging a horse to water for Lauren to convince me to incorporate prints into my wardrobe. But this, this I can get behind because the metallic shine of the sharp-cut jacket against the soft graphics of the loose, flowing dress strikes a perfect chord...not to mention that hazy blue reflection of the evening sky reflected in the jacket's silver tiles.

xx, M
