Since I wound up changing into another pair of shoes for the later part of the afternoon (I don't think I'm quite ready to tackle to city in spikers like these... not yet), I figured I'd separate the day into two posts. This was the outfit I wore to the KIDS (Kids In Distressed Situations) recognition luncheon at the Plaza yesterday morning. I wanted to keep it simple, and by simple, I mean the sleekest silhouette in the most raw of design. Another piece more worthy of its wear than I've presented on this blog, this dress is a vintage Versace sniped from a favorite of mine, Farfetch. Such a basic design, but it hugs every curve just so, and creates a beautiful line, I love it. And, though you can't tell in this picture (you might be able to in photographs tomorrow, but if not, shame on me), the entire dress is coated by pixels of reflecting fabric that create this striking sheen. I've always envied Versace designs for their ability to exude power and provocation without anything more than a smooth, little dress. (Of course, their more radical design schemes are just as, if not more, enjoyable to see.)
So, to add a bit more triumph to the look, I chose these killer corset heels. And if you know me at all, you know how giddy I get when something is striking in a place you'd never expect. From the front, these shoes are completely typical; it's the glimpse from behind that truly targets their character.
Soon I'll post more about the luncheon and part deux of my outfit. :)
