We Don't Talk, We Hold Forth

Lotusgrace dress, Chanel boots, Givenchy earrings, Hermès bracelet

Whether it's the neutrality of the pebble grey or the clean lines on this dress, the general simplicity of it makes it applicable to so many occasions. A barely palpable lustrousness to the fabric is offset with a ribbon of fur at the hem that lends the skirt a pleasant heaviness. That, with a specific gait, gives the skirt a certain sway like that of an oscillating pendulum, a movement that is characteristic of whatever princesses wear. I think it's these kinds of exact observations that make what I wear seem like I'm a complete stranger to casual clothes. Sometimes dressing up is just more fun than dressing down.

Silk Road

Robert Rodriguez shirt, Alice + Olivia leather skirt, Hermès belt, Isabel Marant heels, Balenciaga clutch, Chanel and David Yurman rings

Wearing perhaps the only floaty leather skirt in existence with the sheerest thing I own on the only windy day I could ever approve of. I never knew pairing leather pleats with airy ribbons of silk frills could make such an agreeable layering effect. Better yet, the combination can be simply transformed into a variation of the peplum with the addition of a belt at the waist. I think I'm alright with orange when multiple but strictly complementary shades of it are piled on all at once.
