War and Peace

Happy Tuesday!  Hope your November is starting out well, and you’ve adjusted to Daylight Savings Time.  I’m not happy that it’s dark when I leave work now, but it is what it is.  🙂

Today, I’m featuring a look I wore to a recent fashion show.  My coverage of the show is coming up soon, but I thought I’d post my outfit first.

Dress:  Eva Mendes for New York & Company
Blazer:  The Limited

This look is a tweak on an outfit I actually came up with for last year’s fall Fashion Week.  I call this my “War and Peace” look.

I’ve talked about how much I love balance in an outfit, and I think this look has just that.  

Tights:  The Limited

It has softness (dress) and structure (blazer) and more metaphorically, it’s a balance of two forces – love and hate, peace and war.  I combined my “love” print tights with a military blazer and a bullet pendant.

Pendant:  eBay
Bracelets:  New York & Company; The Limited
Rings:  The Limited; Torrid
Ear cuff:  Torrid
Earrings:  New York & Company; The Limited (Available here)

Since I was anticipating having to stand for part of the event, I wanted some fairly comfortable shoes, so I went with my open-toe booties.

Booties:  Target

Fashion show coverage coming up this week!
