OUTFIT OF THE WEEK: LADY LAVENDER

By Jesse L. Brooks

 

Since the weather is insisting on playing tricks on us this week with these warmer temperatures, we can't help but get Spring on our minds.

Just because it's winter doesn't mean you can't pull in some soft, colorful hues.

This week we are creating a little colliding seasonal magic for our new Outfit of The Week. Starting off with a sassy skirt that has it all! This lavender cotton and silk blend asymmetric frilled skirt from Marni features a high rise, a concealed side zip fastening, and a rear central vent. We love the light, flirty vibe of this piece, which is why it's best to keep its pairings on the simple side, like with a classic black turtleneck by Heritage. Next, we went for a staple pair of shoes that every fashion gal needs in her walk-in. Since first debuting in 2004, Christian Louboutin's 'Pigalle Follies' pumps have seen countless iterations. The designer admits that their precision is most distinct in this 100mm version. These shoes have been beautifully made in Italy, from glossy patent leather with a classic point-toe silhouette and signature red lacquered sole.Having a little fun with our bag of choice, we decided to celebrate one of our favorite winter hobbies, which is book reading. This cotton wool felt-silk blend Sleeping Murder clutch from Olympia Le-Tan, featuring a reproduction cover from Agatha Christies' 1976 detective fiction adds extra personality to our ensemble. Making our look daytime friendly are ultra glamorous sunglasses. Bold frames accentuate the retro allure of its light weight and full-coverage, finished with logo plaques at the temples on these Le Specs Air Heart shades. As always, we rounded things out with a visit to the beauty department. Get the signature Mon Paris look with this YSL Beauty collector's edition palette inspired by Paris, the city of intense love. Create a romantic look with the soft lavender and pearly pink shades to make your eyes look extra dreamy. Even though the cold weather will be back before you know it, this outfit allows you to be a spring dreamin', 'Lavender Lady' if only for a day.
