I had an impromptu invitation to have lunch with my sister and a couple of her friends at the historic Beverly Hills Hotel. I figured this red and wild getup would be appropriate for the lush and tropical atmosphere.
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then I hope Hedi Slimane is really flattered because I’m clearly imitating one of his Spring 2013 looks for Saint Laurent. Until I can afford the real thing, I’m afraid I have to turn to high street for my fashion fix. I already had all the elements for this look in my closet, except for the fedora. That’s where H&M New Icons came in. But that didn’t come easy. I searched for nearly 2 months until one of the stores put their display one on hold for me. I am really thankful, because let’s face it, the hat brings all the drama to this look.
DETAILS: fedora: H&M New Icons; blouse: Jason Wu for Target; blazer: Anne Klein, trousers: Gap, pumps: Nine West
JCrew’s Fall & Winter 2013 collection was one of my favorites at New York Fashion Week. I love how the looks mixed different prints. Although it’s spring now and I’m not wearing any JCrew items here, this look is definitely inspired by that collection.
DETAILS: pants: Banana Republic (Mad Men Collection); blazer: Forever 21(similar here); T-shirt: Jason Wu for Target (old, but available on ebay here); wedges: Mango; glasses: Ray-Ban; bag: Coach (Legacy Penny Shoulder)
