The moment I saw this poodle sweater at Revolve Clothing I knew it had to be mine, merely for the fact that the love of my life is a little 2.5 pound white poodle named Teddi.  The other love of my life is a black 5 pound poodle named Bella.  The sweater also came in white with a black poodle, but I ended up liking the black version better so sorry Bella.  I think a poodle sweater and a poodle skirt is something every girl probably wanted from the moment she saw Grease or maybe I am the only one.  This was my first piece of clothing by Milly and I think I will be back for more because they also make some darling plaid skirts.  The collar on the poodle says Milly, which I find pretty damn cute. 

So this outfit came together pretty quickly.  I picked out this red memory fabric skirt by Anzevino & Florence first.  I tend to gravitate towards girly skirts like these pretty often.  I wanted to wear the skirt because it seems like more of a winter skirt with the dark blood red color and all.  For a top I wanted to do something different instead of a typical tight long sleeve or short sleeve so I went for the sweater.  Pretty soon I was feeling a 50s vibe so I thought I would add the herringbone tights.  I was getting sick of the same old black tights.  These Jill Stuart jolene booties were something I searched high and low for simply because I think they are so victorian and different.  Not everyone appreciates them, but they always make me smile.  Over a year ago on Revolve Clothing, they had just about every model sporting these booties, but they were nowhere to be found.  However, Gilt Groupe saved the day in the end and I got them for a great price.  Whenever I wear them I pair them with full skirts like this one.  Old habits die hard.

Ben-Amun Engraved Gold Cuff - Gift from Boyfriend

There are a lot of things I am looking forward to in the coming weeks.  Weekends spent in Aspen hiking, shopping, and dining is one of them.  I usually find some good stuff there at the Fendi and Dior boutiques.  The UPS guy is getting to be one of my best friends and finally asked me what the heck Net-a-Porter is all about because he has been delivering a lot of packages to people in my neighborhood.  I told him it is likely due to the end of season sale.  I was also glad to know I wasn't the only one indulging in the sale around here. 

You can wear this Missoni woven wrap top in a variety of different ways.  I chose to put the buttons in the center, but on the Net-a-Porter site they styled it with the buttons on the side.  It is one of those items I think I will have forever, as long as I stay the same size!  I snagged the last one in my size on the website.  These Pollini laser cut booties that Nicholas Kirkwood designed are more beautiful than I ever thought they would be when I purchased them.  I am lucky enough to be a member of Gilt Noir so I get to see items 15 minutes before the sales start and also get access to special designer events.  I still have to be on the ball right at 10 AM though and I have been pretty lucky in that respect.  I have never had a pair of heels by Nicholas Kirkwood, but the platform area on these heels is so awesome I just might have to get some more of his designs.  The cut-outs on the shoes matched the print on my Missoni top.  This skirt is one of the most versatile things I own in terms of color.  It is perfect for summer and the fabric is pretty neat.
