Winter Cocktail Ensemble
I am sure many of you fashion fans that read my blog, know about the site ShopStyle.
When I have time to kill (not very often) or when I need to let my brain take a break (meaning I need time to kill but don’t have any), I sometimes go to websites and browse fabulous real-estate, or I go to ShopStyle and browse fashion. It’s a great site where you can “play” stylist and creat your own outfits for any occasion, mood or trend.
Since I am in a premature holiday season mood, I concocted an ensemble for this festive season, something for the non-formal cocktail hour but where you want to remain ultra chic but take advantage of the liberty to be comfortable after work (meaning wearing pants), as well as remaining sultry and sexy underneath. Part of Parisian fashion for me means being subtly sexy (meaning, if you have a low-cut vest, you don’t wear a short skirt and you DO cover your cleavage but with lace, for example) with an edge of comfort and you must always always having an “arme fatale” in case you need to do some serious seducing…or more! Also, if you are going to wear deep red lipstick, keep the eye makeup to a minimum. And if you wear obvious earrings, leave off he necklace. And iff you wear an attention-attracting ring or bracelet, you better have a manicure as people will be drawn to notice your hands.
For this ensemble :
The “arme fatale” is the Damaris Nouvelle Amour lace bodysuit that peeks out slightly from underneath the Alexander McQueen Satin And Wool Tuxedo Jacket. The Balmain low waist skinny pants in black are in fact the eyebrow raising piece since they are fit and snug and show off your curves. The Christian Louboutin Very Privé 120 watersnake pump and the Diane Von Furstenberg Lytton clutch bag add shine and pizzaz, whereas the very pretty, very expensive Colucci Diamonds Boucles d’oreilles en or blanc 18 carats et diamants 12.11 CTWearrings add classy bling along with the two diamond bangle bracelets : Orlando Orlandini Capriccio – Bracelet in white gold and diamons and Forzieri with white gold and diamonds.
A little red Opi nail laquer and some striking Dior lipstick give an immaculate edge and are a wink at the red soled shoes. Santé darlings!
Enjoy browsing and playing stylist on ShopStyle!!!!
I love this – it’s sooo ideal and the perfect mix of smart meets sexy. x
