There was a hint of fall air last night in New York which whipped up a desire for me to get dressed up. Mind you, I've been living in t-shirts and American Apparel cordoroy shorts all week so I welcomed this opportunity with open arms! I dragged The Fiance off the sofa and ordered that we have a sushi dinner at BondSt and meet a friend of mine at Thom Bar for a drink afterwards.
I wore a Prada dove-grey top with an asymmetrical bow-tie detail, Dolce & Gabbana high-waisted satin leopard skirt, Alaia nude patent T-strap sandals, and a Chanel black satin evening clutch. No jewelry except for a thin little navy woven bracelet with wooden beads that a friend had picked up for me on a trip to South America.
Leopard seems to be all the rage this coming season and Dolce & Gabbana's leopard print is iconic (next to YSL, of course). I should've taken a close-up pic of the skirt--the pattern is sumptuous and looks almost real. Usually, I would pair this skirt with a white or black top but I think the grey softens the look.
