Chanel Change

Ralph Lauren sweater. 3.1 Phillip Lim dress. Vintage gold belt. Vintage costume pendant necklace worn as headband. Vintage costume Art Deco necklace. Satellite bracelet. Moss agate (a souvenir from my trip to St. Thomas) & vintage stone rings. Brown tights. Chanel ‘Maxi’ bag. Marc by Marc Jacobs mouse shoes.
Only Phillip Lim could cut a pink brocade dress with such panache - its elegant shift shape & foppish bow is a far cry from Palm Beach window dressing. Winter sweaters are reborn when I wear pullovers under my frocks instead of the more traditional cardigans over them; this not only showcases my dresses better (the best part of an outfit) but also imparts a slight edge to a girlie look. Accessories roll call: a skinny belt + a pair of ponyhair mouse shoes = Mod Squad goes to Disney World. Finally I packed all of my secrets inside my tawny Chanel purse (it's a rare constant in the world of fashion) & headed out the frontdoor.
