Leg elongating Alaia lace-up Sandals finished off the look.
I've dressed up this denim skirt from Acne quite a few times so this time I dressed it down for a more casual look by wearing a soft tank from Jenni Kayne and a boyfriend blazer. A thin gold chain arc bracelet and Alaia lace-up sandals finished off the look. You can subscribe to my YouTube channel to see all my videos.

Giuseppe Zanotti Platform Wedges in Navy Blue - Worn before here with Haute Hippie sequin dress
Last time I wore these blue suede wedges I wore them with sequins and when I saw this Ali Ro sequin dress in black and blue hanging in my closet I knew the wedges were once again the perfect pick. I have said in the past how I adore black and blue together and this dress combines the colors flawlessly and in sequins no less. Believe it or not, this dress had been hanging in my closet for over a year with the tags still attached. I knew it was gorgeous and beautiful and the perfect length, but I didn't know where I was goin to wear it. I bought it during one of Gilt Groupe's final sales for a steal and I think there was only one left. I decided I can wear sequins whenever I want to because they always lift my mood. There is nothing like some high shine to make you feel glamorous. I own some other pieces by Ali Ro, including this silk blazer I wore on the blog a month ago.
When I went mall shopping with Marisol she picked out this beautiful Alice + Olivia fur bolero for me and I tried it on and it looked so good with my black long sleeved Kimberly Ovitz tunic that I had to buy it. It was marked down to a very low price and Marisol told me she had the same one, but in brown. We were suprised that it looked so good with a long sleeve dress so next time I wear it I think I will model it that way. It was hanging on my doorknob when I had this sequin dress on and I decided to see how they looked together since the bolero has hints of blue in it. I was amazed at how fabulous the dress and bolero looked together. Sequins and fur never looked so good because the fur is not shiny or glossy and tones down the sequins, but still totally vamps up the look. Kourtney Kardashian was seen sporting this Alice + Olivia fur bolero in brown with a sequin dress by Alice + Olivia.
I have no words for these Giuseppe Zanotti platform sculped blue suede wedges. As I said before I had to special order these shoes and I was pretty desperate for them. There are no returns when you special order, but these shoes would never get returned. They would make anything look good I think, but I like to pair them with glitzy dresses. They remind me of my Giuseppe Zanotti leopard platform wedges I own due to the sculpting. I have seen these wedges in many other colors on celebrities including yellow and black. Someone even wore them without the ankle straps because they are removable so maybe next time I will have to wear them that way.

Chanel Classic Pearl Necklace in Silver - Gift from Boyfriend
Quilted anything has been on my mind lately and I have been seeing quite a few quilted pieces around from various designers. I managed to snag these Alexander Wang quilted denim shorts off of Gilt. To my surprise they weren't selling that well. I think it is because the quilting can add some extra padding around your body and some women don't like that. I need to keep warm though and quilted pieces are the way to go, especially in the winter. The weather has been so mild here so I am lucky I can still get away with shorts and tights.
My boyfriend got me these Camilla Skovgaard wedge ankle boots with the saw sole. I have wanted these for over a year, but whenever I looked for them they were always sold out everywhere. Somehow he found them! The sole might look weird, but once you have these things on your feet you will never look back. Shoes you can wear all day (without pain) that make you look taller are what every woman probably wants. Camilla Skovgaard knows how to design shoes for women. They aren't too narrow and they are super comfortable.
I am not too fond of blazers, but I do surprise myself when I put one on. They clean me up really nice. This Ali Ro blazer is silk and the white folded over cuffs are sewn in place, which helps a lot. Usually when I try to roll up sleeves or pull up cuffs they always end up falling back into their original form, which can be a little distracting for a fashion blogger. Anyway, this blazer is beautiful and one of the few pieces I have from Ali Ro. I wore a KAIN Label pocket tee with a Chanel pearl necklace underneath. I need to invest in more of these KAIN tops as they come in really handy when I need a tee for layering. My boyfriend bought me this Chanel necklace at the boutique in Chicago over 2 years ago. It is a classic and I have worn it many times, but this is the first time I have posted it on the blog.
