Shimmy Bronze and Purple

July 16, 2012

Purple and Camel
Celine Luggage Tote

Jeans:Rag and Bone (here) (similar jeggings on sale here!)
Top:J-Crew (old)
Cape: Stella McCartney (similar here)
Shoes:Christian Louboutin
Necklace:Ann Taylor
Bag:Celine, Sunglasses:Prada

Spent my weekend with my mini me little sister Tino doing girly stuff; shopping, cooking and nail painting. She is staying with us for the majority of her school summer break. We went to TJ Maxx to long for umbrellas and I ended up buying more than I planned! I was so impressed with their Home goods section. They have so many cute decor items and their prices are great. I asked myself why it took me so long to go there :(. Anyway, I found it and I love it!

The outfit I am wearing was created with the help of Tino, she chose the shoes and the necklace. I was planning on pairing this look with black shoes and a gold chain link necklace until she vetoed them. Would the look have been better or worse with the black pumps?

    You look totally and absolutely on point! ON POINT! The nude shoes are perfect for the outfit especially because of the matching cape. Then you take the cape off and ohlala! you are shimmering!

    I think you could go either way with the black or nude shoes, but I like the ones you’re wearing here better – and that cape is everything!

    Love the purple pants combined with the beige shoes, looks gorgeous & summerish.I guess black pumps will do better in winter

    Haha, I like how she vetoed your options. I think she did a good job picking these Loubies; they go really well with the cape. Fab outfit all around.

    Love that top, and the nude shoe is perfect with the look. I’m obsessed with white dishes, serving pieces, etc., and I always find the best goodies at HomeGoods.

    Love the pants! I’ve been seeing lots of pink and mint pants lately so it’s refreshing to see another color. Also, I think it looks great with the nude shoes instead of the black.

    You look absolutely fabulous! Love the accessories you used:)


  • Reply Andiva July 17, 2012 at 7:35 am

    The nude shoes are perfect for the outfit. Black pumps may have watered down the look or gotten lost in the deep purple so the nude-purple contrast is just right. I heart the look.

  • Reply Jupe July 17, 2012 at 8:28 am

    Very much liking the cape…so classic and classy, but the purple pantsa and sparkle make it trendy and fun.

    Don’t honestly think you could go wrong with black pumps, but the camel (?) looks lovely with the other neutrals in your ensemble 🙂 Love getting style inspiration from your posts!

  • Reply Diva In Me July 22, 2012 at 12:32 pm

    I think the choice of your current shoe is great. Black will be a little too dark if paired with this jeans which is dark in color already. I like your shimmery top =)

    Just found your blog, and I love your style! The cape looks fabulous on you, and I’ve been wanting a Celine bag like that for ages. You look great!
