While I always love adding little feminine flares to my rather edgy look, sometimes you just want to feel like a girl and nothing else! And that is exactly what I did when dressing up for the Milly show at New York fashion Week. Because nothing says “girly girl” quite better than a shade of pink, pretty bows and little hearts!
The dress I chose was a light pink Simone Rocha that finished just above the knees and I was feelin’ pretty in pink! In fact, it’s not just the color of the dress that I love, but it’s also the unique cuts and shapes that make it oh-so-fabulous. The cross body sash, loops and flaps transform the crisp corporate silhouette into something that’s a lot more fun and glamorous. Also, that little bit of embroidery on the flap covering the left shoulder proves how in the world of fashion, less is more. Besides, embroidery and embellishments are a hot trend and I absolutely love it.
To the ladies who think hearts are for teenage girls who read Nicholas Sparks novels and doodle “Mrs. Gosling” in their composition notebooks, I say think again. You don’t have to be young to pull them off, just confident in yourself. Which is why I’m obsessed with this magenta Gucci Marmont Shoulder Bag! Because of its bold color and design, this statement piece works best when paired with a dress that has minimal color to make it stand out even more. And come on, this bag is so adorable!
For the feet, I thought these muted gold Gucci block heal would be a great fit. Plus my feet enjoyed the break! The Mary Jane style makes the look tilt completely towards retro. Not to mention, the dull gold color plays off of the gold hardware on the handbag. That kind of stylizing is essential– if you’ve got metallic textures and guess in your handbag and footwear, they should ideally match.
To top off this princess-worthy look, I wore a white lacey Yunotme headpiece and made NYC my runway!
