Underneath the jacket I did some nifty layering for the cooler Denver nights by wearing an Equipment chambray shirt buttoned up underneath a Helmut Lang sheer silk asymmetrical sweater.
This is a casual outfit that I photographed for Fashion Snag. I layered some pieces on top to create texture and wore a new shearling leather jacket I purchased this fall. You can subscribe to my YouTube channel to see all my videos.
Helmut Lang Leather Droid Drape Jacket in Black - Snagged off Gilt.com for $500 (Retail: $1265)
Christian Louboutin Lady Derby Calf Hair Ankle Boots in Leopard - Worn before here with Bleulab jeans and Elizabeth and James top and see gray flannel version worn here with Alexander Wang leather shorts and Kimberly Ovitz tunic
Express Silk Camisole in Red - Snagged at Express in the mall a few years ago
As promised, here is the other side of the Bleulab reversible jeans from Tea Leaf Clothing. This side is black and the other side I wore yesterday was gray. I wore the black side for a nighttime look to go grab some sushi at Sushi Den. I purposely wore the same Christian Louboutin leopard lady derby boots so you could get an idea of how easy it would be to transition these jeans from day to night since they are reversible. I made the top part of my outfit more dressy as compared to the daytime look when I simply wore an oversized tee. These jeans will not constrict your movement. In fact, they feel like tights to me and they have enough stretch for girls that have a booty like mine.
I wanted to match the red soles of the Christian Louboutin heels so I wore this red silk camisole tank that I snagged at Express in the mall years ago. It is basic and adds a nice pop of color and the silk is great for going out on a date. The Ben-Amun multi chain necklace is a favorite piece of mine that I snagged off Gilt a couple years ago. I have worn it more than once before on the blog and it has held up pretty well in terms of the materials. I would definitely recommend Ben-Amun jewelry. I haven't seen any sales recently on Gilt Groupe, but I would keep checking back. You can make this necklace longer or shorter depending on where you hook the chain. I am wearing it in the shortest version here.
The newest item I added to my closet is this Helmut Lang leather droid drape jacket. This was for sale a month ago on Gilt Groupe and I wasn't sure about it at first, but the price was too good to pass up so I gave it a shot. The leather is like butter and the draping is perfect. I love how it fits as well. I would definitely buy more Helmut Lang jackets. I saw photos of Miley Cyrus wearing this same jacket when I was debating about buying it and the pictures put me over the edge. I also see that it is still on sale for full price at Bergdorf Goodman and Tobi. It seems amazing to me when I get such a great snag on an item from a recent collection on Gilt Groupe. If you haven't joined yet I suggest you do as soon as possible. You are missing out!
