OUTFIT OF THE WEEK: ENCHANTED ELEGANCE

By Jesse L Brooks

 

Our new Outfit of The Week is getting whimsical, thanks to a truly charming dress that inspired our entire look. Visiting The Met Cloisters museum in New York is one of Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia's fondest memories with the late Oscar de la Renta, and a sound installation they heard together inspired an ethereal Fall '18 collection.
Worn on the runway, this silk-chiffon dress is printed with flora and fauna of an enchanted forest.
It comes with a detachable black slip so you don't need to worry about the sheerness of the floaty fabric. Since we are aiming our ensemble towards an evening look, it is important that our accessories properly express that; starting off with a chic clutch perfect for a night out on the town. This slouchy, vintage inspired bag from Burberry is beautifully crafted in sleek satin for a sophisticated style reminiscent of Hollywood glamour. With a simple foldover design, the piece is pierced with an archival kilt pin in oversized proportions, glittering with crystal embellishments to further enhance the soft sheen. To bring out the beautiful pops of color in our delightful dress, we continued to brighten things up with our shoes and jewels. Aquazzura's Concorde 105 pumps are made in Italy from high shine patent leather. The peep-toe design oozes glamour in cherry-red, while its high backed cut sets it apart from your typical stiletto silhouette. Lending just a hint of sparkle, Larkspur and Hawk's 'Jane's earrings are cast from rhodium-dipped sterling silver and set with faceted quartz backed in blue foil. Wrapping things up with  a little beauty, a look like this calls for a classic cat eye. Tarte's Sex Kitten liquid eyeliner keeps your look crisp all while creating a sexy feline smolder. The elongated, soft-flex applicator and quick-dry, liquid formula with tarte 12-hour power™ gives you ultimate control by imparting a precise line that hugs lashes without skipping. Regardless of the occasion, in this captivating look you are sure to exude 'Enchanted Elegance' all evening long.
