Emilio Pucci Caledon Graphic-Print Skirt in Multicolor - Snagged off theOutnet.com for $450 (Retail: $965)
Finally, I can show you the Emilio Pucci skirt I have been dying to wear all winter. I snagged this beautiful multicolor skirt off the Outnet. I was drawn to all the bright colors and the combination of the colors. The skirt is wool and emphasizes the waist. It has a beautiful silk lining as well. I own two pairs of Emilio Pucci heels, these amazing cut-out studded sandals and these suede lace-up Pocahontas sandals. This is my first ever clothing purchase from Emilio Pucci, but I am highly impressed. I buy mostly contemporary and trendy clothing, but I am now looking into buying fewer pieces by more high end designers. I think I worry about the items being too fancy for everyday wear and tear. This skirt is perfect for spring I think because it is still very warm due to the wool, but when you pair it with a tank and a little blazer or jacket it is just right for the weather. Tell me you love the print and colors as much as I do?
I paired it with a basic black tank by James Perse that you see me wearing all the time here on Fashion Snag. I wanted to emphasize the skirt in this outfit. Some lace trim peeks out from my bralette which I always think looks pretty cute. Since the Pucci skirt is fairly long on me I wore my highest pair of mary jane heels by Fendi. I call these my killer heels because they are probably my most uncomfortable pair of shoes, but I like how they make my legs look with longer skirts and trousers. They are so gorgeous, yet painful, but I cannot give them up. My boyfriend doesn't understand it sometimes, but I am sure you shoe lovers out there know where I am coming from. When I wear them with tights they are a tiny bit more comfortable so that is how I like to wear them although you can see me wearing them in some previous posts I linked to without any hosiery.
This outfit reminds me that I am totally ready for spring and all the bright colors that come with it. Watch my video to see more of my outfit in action, including the shoes!

These shoes are so comfortable and have fast become one of my favorite pairs. I own another pair of Emilio Pucci studded cutout shoes that I adore and wore in a previous post, but this suede pair with the lace-up detailing is much easier to walk in. I like to think of these shoes as my Pocahontas heels. They are like moccasins, but with a stiletto heel. My only worry is that they will get dirty fast, but I am usually pretty careful. I saw a vest similar to these shoes in the Henry Beguelin store in Aspen and I almost wish I would have gotten it. It was on sale, but I thought the light suede would not stay clean for very long. I guess I was still thinking of that vest when I snagged these shoes on the Net-a-Porter website. When I saw this Mara Hoffman silk dress on Gilt I put it in my cart right away and checked out as fast as I could. It sold out very fast. I knew I wanted to wear it as a dress and I have all these Free People slips laying around so everything worked out perfectly. The print on this dress made me think of my favorite earrings. I don't think I will ever get sick of these hammered discs. The rose gold color is just too perfect for me.

I wanted to find a way to make this gorgeous Elizabeth and James blouse more fitted and I thought a white belt would be perfect, yet different from the usual black belt. The evergreen color of this top is one of my favorite colors and it seems to go well with my red hair. I added a white tuxedo blazer to tie in with the belt for some photos and I think it looks cute both ways. This Free People skirt has come in handy on many occasions. It is great to throw in your suitcase and the price is easy on the wallet. I decided to leave the look simple with no jewelry as I thought the belt and the studded heels seemed to do the accessorizing on their own. These heels are perfection and as soon as I spotted them I fell in love. They started selling out like crazy so I caved and bought them instead of waiting for a sale, which I usually like to do. I don't regret my purchase because they look as beautiful in the photographs as they do in person and they are a tough shoe, meaning they can take some abuse here and there and still look feminine. The heel is definitely cool due to the little notch at the top. My first Pucci anything and I am not looking back!
We decided to shoot in the kitchen, which I think turned out quite nicely because the white cabinets match my belt and blazer. I grabbed whatever was available and had fun. Some of my favorite items to spice up dishes include agave nectar, olive oil, and vinegar. I put olive oil on everything. Whenever I have soup I always like to pair it with some tough sourdough bread toasted in the oven with olive oil. The only dressing I like for salads is homemade oil and vinegar with some pepper thrown in for good measure. Agave nectar is perfect for sweetening up your green tea and melted chocolate. Don't ask me how many almonds I eat a day because the number is pretty high. I prefer them covered in dark chocolate, but I will take them plain too. I like to sneak some to the squirrels in the backyard when my boyfriend isn't looking.
I hope you enjoy the post and remember you can follow me on Twitter, Google Friend Connect, and Bloglovin. I always notice my new followers and it makes me smile. This blog is a form of artistic expression for my boyfriend and I and we enjoy coming up with new photos and making the settings interesting to the eye. We were so famished after this photo shoot in the kitchen that we actually put those pots and pans to good use and made a delicious vegetable stir-fry.
