Two for the Road: 9/27/09

Date: 9/27/09
Bag: Fendi black patent tote
Shoe: Marc Jacobs metallic skimmer with rose detail
Worn with: Kulson silk print camisole, Alberta Ferretti cashmere cardigan, Marc Jacobs cuffed wide legged shorts, Louis Vuitton black belt with large silver buckle
This is an outfit combination that I have never worn before but I like it so much that I might have to wear it again sometime. It makes use of a lot of items from my wardrobe that don't often see the light of day. The Fendi tote was a Christmas gift, the shoes were purchased at the Iris store in Milan. Iris is the manufacturer of a lot of amazing shoe brands like Marc Jacobs, Chloe, Veronique Branquinho and others that I cannot recall! Anyway, it was always a stop during Milan Fashion Week because they often had styles that weren't available at the namesake stores in Europe or America. It was almost like a factory store but not, unfortunately, at factory prices. The cami was a cheap purchase pre-fashion week from Bloomie's (I think?), the cardigan is part of an A.F. dress I received as a gift from the Aeffe folks. The Marc Jacobs shorts were purchased in NYC; I was absolutely obsessed with the Spring/Summer 2006 Collection that was very schoolgirl-inspired. I bought both these shorts and the cross-front jumper that season at the Marc Jacobs store on Mercer Street. With the 30% editor's discount, the price tags were a little easier to swallow. The retro-Cowboy-rodeo-inspired belt buckle from Vuitton was a gift from the PR girls; I had admired it while at an LV event at their flagship store on 57th and Fifth. And yes, the next day, the brown bag arrived with my belt and a note. I have this feeling that PR budgets in NYC aren't quite the same nowadays...

What fun every morning must be!. Not sure about the top half (can't really see it to comment objectively), but the shorts and shoes are adorable. Not a huge fan of the tote, though.
