ID Me: My Plunging Paillette Look



A couple nights ago I went to the Autumn Party benefit. It was an amazing evening and the event was for a great cause, the Children’s Institute. There was even a runway show, where I sat front row and watched Yigal Azrouel’s beautiful designs strut down the catwalk. Now for the fun details: What did I wear? My dress was BCBG, the shoes were Jimmy Choo and the bag was a vintage treasure I picked up during a recent trip. I picked the dress because it felt sexy, but with a youthful spin. The plunging neckline and short hem were tempered by the flirty paillettes and neutral color. I’m a huge fan mixing neutral tones–especially when nude heels are involved, which is why I liked this look. Since the entire outfit was made up of pale hues, I did a bold lip and tamed it with a soft romantic hairstyle.

Style Tip: When wearing a flashy dress, keep accessories minimal and neutral. Instead of piling on unnecessary arm candy or adding a sparkly clutch, opt for an interesting hairstyle or a fun color pop using makeup instead. This is a simple way to make your overall look more playful and fashion-forward.

How would you have styled my look?
