What I Wore

Yesterday was my last full day of fashion week and I decided to go out with a bang. I wore a black dress to the Harper's Bazaar breakfast but when everyone else went off to Michael Kors show, I decided to go shopping for a new afternoon outfit.  I headed over to the J.Crew Collection store on Madison Avenue at 66th Street, my home away from home. I found a bunch a great things but decided on these green brocade pants.  The outfit I threw together was very different for me but fashion week is definitely not the time to be a wallflower. 

Collection Cafe Capri Pants in Jade Jacquard - After buying these pants, I ran home and stitch witcheried the hem which my tailor is going to have to now fix.  For day they looked good with the blue shirt and I also bought a black cashmere crewneck to wear with them with it gets cooler.  I also plan to wear them to Amanda Nisbet's book party next week with a black blouse and tuxedo jacket and heels.  

French Blue Susan Shirt from Club Monaco - I never met a blue shirt I didn't like and this one is baby soft and relaxed.  

J.Crew Leopard Calf Hair Belt - I would never wear a leopard belt with jacquard pants usually but it seemed appropriate for fashion week to step outside my comfort zone.  

Roger Vivier Thong Sandals - My feet could not do heels one more day so I wore my favorite flat sandals.  The best thing about the shows in September is that everyone is wearing flat sandals. Many of you asked about these sandals the last time I posted them.  They aren't online but if you call one of the stores, they can help you. 

Hermes Birkin - My bag was purchased vintage from an estate sale.

Tassle Necklace - I made this myself with a tassle from a vintage necklace and another long chain I had in my jewelry box.

Lanvin Bracelets - I bought these in Paris years ago.  I wish they made they again because everyone loves them.

The Branch Green Ring - Green, gold and wood that I bought at Treillage always garners compliments. 

Lookmatic Glasses - I worse glasses to hide the bags under my eyes.

Estee Lauder Violet Electra Lipstick - Nothing like a bright lipstick to make you look and feel more alive.

If you're a long time reader, you know this is the way I like to post my outfits.  Some of you keep asking me to take photos of me wearing the outfits.  I'm not a fashion blogger nor do I want to compete with girls who are 22 or a size 2 so please stop asking me.
