Its Not Always Black and White

Today’s look is a bit funky and fun. I wanted an easy and comfortable look for an afternoon of lunch and shopping at the mall.  I was on a mission for the perfect birthday gift for my mom, so I chose ultra comfy and very happening Prada suede high-top sneakers in black.  It was a maiden voyage for these, so the Mall at Short Hills was a perfect destination.  I knew I would be doing a fair share of power walking and these shoes did not disappoint.  Nor did I feel like I sacrificed looks for comfort in the footwear department! You may be seeing a lot more of these in future posts.  My dress is a short sleeve shift in a simple black and white houndstooth.  It is very light for a summer day and was a great deal on Gilt.com, which is a site where I LOVE to shop.  If you don’t yet, do yourself a favor, you can thank me later.  The dress is made by The Letter, and has a great little surprise detail of leather piping at the collar to add interest.  For a show of color, I added my Gucci head wrap in fuscia.  It was purchased at the online summer sale at Bergdorf Goodman.com.  If you haven’t taken a look, you might want to.  To accessorize, I added my Hermes enamel H bracelets. While leaving the mall, I visited a new (to me) make up counter in the location of my usual make up counter.  I decided to give the Tom Ford products a try.  Jason did my make up and I really like the product.  More to come on this exciting find! The day was a success, gifts in hand and a fresh looking face, my work was done.
