Hello my Lovelies! Since I was wearing a casual look in my last post, you can safely bet that today I am out of my denim and back in a dress. I am consistent in my inconsistency! Never dull here! So today I am featuring....
Another neutral outfit with brown tones and beiges, spiced up with warm orange tones. There is, characteristically, a lot of detail here. The first is my silk trench coat in a polka dot pattern. This is a silk faille fabrication, and it is slightly ribbed if you look super close. It has good drape and is somewhat heavy. This is an ideal fabric for a trench coat.
Under said trench is a mock-neck printed floral dress by Ralph Lauren Black Label, purchased at Michael's Consignment shop for Women at 1041 Madison Avenue. I liked the floral dot combo, which is not an uncommon pattern mix.
I look a bit goofy here, but I am having fun. A word, or several, about the Hermes Kelly bag in togo leather. This leather is sort of grainy and pliable, soft and hard at the same time. This means it has structure, but is not as stiff as box leather, which is truly my favorite , but requires more can than the togo. It is also rain resistant, but I have never risked it! It is the 35mm size, which is the most popular I believe; being good size but not too large. I love the white top-stitching! AND, this was a gift from my dear sister, purchased together at the Flagship store in Manhattan. Swoon.
Here I am inside, but almost appear outside. Our lovely lobby has a courtyard, and I love this feature. The lighting is not ideal, but the scenery behind me is attractive.
The tassel bracelet was a fun find from STA, also on Madison Avenue, and is vintage. There are many designers today adding silk tassels to their jewelry, so whomever designed this ages ago was prescient. I love the way this bracelet falls on my wrist; it is fun and NOT precious. The rest of the photos will show the Hermes Kelly bag in Togo leather, and the other accessories that include said bracelet, two rings purchased in Mexico, and my Gucci sunglasses.
Because I love filters and will start a Pinterest Board on the Kelly bag, I am adding this:
And finally, a solo of the Hermes Kelly bag in togo leather, and white top-stitching. OK, not quite solo, the sunnies and ring are there, too.
You will see the dress in a soon-to-be-added post. I hope you are having a wonderful week!
