Paisley Princess

Anna Sui dress. Vintage costume pearl earrings. Vintage costume pearl & turquoise rings. Floral tights. Chanel shoes.
Today was the debut of my glorious gilded paisley dress (look #22 from Anna Sui's fall 2009 RTW fashion show). To keep the focus on my frock, I omitted any necklaces & instead wore a pair of gold rimmed pearl earrings & two cocktail rings. The gray floral knit tights were directly inspired from Ms. Sui's runway (my rule for mixing prints is to keep them in the same color family).
Even though I bought this dress awhile ago, I try to ration my new clothes to be worn over time - wearing something fresh puts a spring in my step, which is absolutely necessary on a Monday. Clothes serve as armor against the world & I take comfort in presenting an unimpeachable façade... It's my primary solace in the corporate world.
