parisian party

1st November 2012

today’s look is kate spade party perfection with a pop of parisian chic.

this striped celina dress is a girl’s best friend, everyone woman should have something like it hanging in their closet to dust off && wear for a special event … or just a wednesday.
ladies, believe in the power of layering. i took the dress from classic to quirky with a quick pop of my peter pan collar that reads “all the girls are mad” in french.
this look is 99% kate spade for a brand fan head to toe look, where the fun red && polka dot accents work as this outfit’s final touches for the perfect parisian party.

Pardon my french-ness, but I am in full-blow Persian chic mode as inspired by garance dore & kate spade new york. I have been galavanting around the city, imagining I’m in Parie, if only….

get the look: laura top // french tee
This month’s collection at kate spade is french & fabulous (hm, maybe this calls for a marketing monday post…) so I am beyond excited to feature some of these fantastic pieces in this outfit…
 To add an touch of unexpected-ness & pump up my outfits, I like to use leopard print as a neutral! Normally, a red shoe or even a black heel would be the go to sole for this look, but try stepping outside the box and into the wild with a pop of leopard like I did with my newest haircalf pumps.
 If you love it, buy three! This is a saying we use at kate & some words to wear by. I love my karolina pumps, they are crazy comfortable & always adorable so I now own them in kelly green, black & white polka dot (to be featured soon), black with a sparkle heel & now leopard!
 I try really hard not to be limited by my wardrobe. A basic tee can have so many uses, layer it with a peter pan collar or a fun necklace to add an unexpected level of whimsy & sophistication!
