A.F Vandervorst

Pretty in Pink

My Look: Coat: London Fog, Dress: Originally by Lauren Conrad, redesigned by Zofia Designs, Cardigan: ModCloth, Shoes: Rylko, Eyewear: Cynthia Rowley, Earrings: Rebecca Minkoff, Necklace: DaVonna.

With this romantic, sleek, and sophisticated look I am trying down a new way of “pretty in pink” dressing.  

I am completely addicted to trench coats and really love this gorgeous Burberry hooded, taffeta trench coat.

As an alternative I found this super playful Paul Smith color block coat. You can see and shop it here.

This is another great dress that can take you from day to night. You can see details and shop it here.

Bag: Emilie M.

Another Ladylike, "Pretty In Pink" suggestion.

Today, my look is inspired by A.F Vandervorst from Ready to Wear Fall/Winter 2014 Collection.  The collection did not get too many great reviews but I think some of the looks were pretty strong and actually quite gorgeous. Once in a while everyone enjoys an impromptu drink with friends after work or a last minute invite to a dinner party. So when it is time to live, love and laugh a little, it is great to have an outfit that embraces all of that in an elegant, sophisticated but still young ensemble. Pairing this original A.F Vandervorst blacksmith blazer with a Blumarine knee length dress is a great start to a phenomenal night.  If trying to dress similarly to the A.F Vandervorst look, I found these perfect Adriana Pappell Basha booties but pumps or high boots would work with this look as well. I was never so into cuffs or bracelets until I found few exceptional pieces like this Borbonese cuff that I literally want to wear with everything. When I dress up, somehow I feel more confident and there is something magical about wearing a skinny belt, like this Bottega Venetta, with your dress that makes you look extra feminine.  There is not one recipe for style and this look or any other look for that matter can be accessorized with feminine, sophisticated, classy or vintage pieces. I love to look very put-together but not super polished and that’s why I would totally wear a BSEE patterned benie and a Gucci mini zip top crossbody to make my look more cute and trendy.
