I used to do a series of posts on “The Little Lady” — elegant, Grace-Kelly-approved looks to which I aspired. Lots of black and white, lots of tweed. This is a look that never goes out of vogue my friends.
Nail the look with…
+Lace and tweed dress (Giambattista Valli, on sale for $962 — how I’d love to own one of his pieces…)
+Aerin lace up ballet flats (on sale for $248!)
+Ferragamo clutch ($750).
+Pearl + metal statement necklace ($49).
+Ribbed fit-and-flare dress ($100).
+LOVE these bow-toed flats ($228)!!!
+Bow-front cardigan ($89).
+Gucci matelasse mini-bag ($1400). Gucci is just NAILING it.
+Ferragamo embellished headband ($210 — loveeeee). I like the idea of wearing this with an otherwise slightly tomboyish look, i.e., a striped button-down, distressed jeans, simple black flats. There are also un-embellished styles, like this one ($160).
+Ribbon placket blouse (on sale for $62).
And for evening…
+Statement necklace ($65)!!!
+Marcus Lupfer dress ($312).
+The world’s most perfect evening clutch (Oscar, $1,390).
+KJL statement pearl necklace ($120).
+Paule Ka dress ($590).
+Velvet bow-toe sandals (look JUST like my fav Alexandre Birmans, but only $136!!)
+Add this embellished collar to any old dress/tee to instantly elevate things ($350).
