Bouclé Shimmer

Happy Labor Day everyone! Unlike most people who probably went away for the long-weekend or got funky at EZOO, I went to PR Consulting to prep for Fashion Week. The account coordinators, another intern and I spent Saturday preparing 600 invitations for the upcoming Vera Wang show. Smoothies, music and conversation made the day pass quickly. Sunday was more mellow; I simply steamed gowns and arranged the showroom to perfection for Miss L'Wren Scott. Regardless of the task, I couldn't be happier to learn and help.  

I am, however, thankful to have Monday off! Here is this week's outfit, featuring my Sam Edelman Lorissa pumps from the Spiked Marvels post.


Blazer: Zara  
Skirt: Zara  
Shoes: Sam Edelman (available here)
Watch: Akribos XXIV (available here)

I love the mix of textures and details, which create a sophisticated look with edge. The spiked grey heels are complemented by silver pyramid studs and accessories. Like Rachel Zoe, who lists mixing hardware as a major  don't" in her Glamour article, I prefer to keep metals consistent. My choice in mint and white is also a final ode to bygone summer days. 

What do you think about the look? I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend! Stay tuned for posts on my first Fashion Week :)
