Catherine Malandrino Ruffle Front Halter Top In Noir - Snagged off Gilt.com for $88 (Retail: $280)

Out of all the Pleasure Doing Business skirts my boyfriend said this mauve color was his favorite on me.  If the fuchsia color that I wore a few posts back was a little too wild for you then this light pink version would be a great alternative.  The Pleasure Doing Business skirts are very thick and well-constructed, which is something I never knew until I received them.  They would be great for travel due to their construction as they won't wrinkle very easily.  I know if I ever get out of Denver again and back to the Caribbean my neon green Pleasure Doing Business skirt is coming with me.  I tried to style each color skirt differently.  This look is a little more dressed up with some pumps and a summery silk halter top.

I snagged this Catherine Malandrino silk ruffle front top during a Gilt Groupe final sale over a year ago.  It was hanging in my closet ever since, quite lonely and dejected.  However, when I saw the color of this skirt I knew I wanted to pair it with black and the black top had to be a little different to really show off the skirt.  When I put this halter top on I was pleasantly surprised at how fabulous it looked.  The ruffle front really looks good and adds some volume in the right area for me.  It is really cute and the only reason I hadn't worn it before is because I thought it was too fancy for the places I was going.  I obviously don't feel that way about designer shoes though.  I will wear those anywhere. 

I finally found the perfect pair of black suede pumps to complete my shoe collection.  Net-a-Porter sells these cosmic pumps by Jimmy Choo exclusively in black suede and I have to say that they are pretty comfortable.  They are basics and not too flashy, but at the same time they elongate your legs and are beautiful.  Every woman should have some black suede and black patent pumps in her closet, don't you think?  Nothing can beat a pair of pumps because they make your legs look so good.

Jimmy Choo Larga Saba Bag in Off White - Gift from Boyfriend

I found that my love for southwest and Navajo prints goes beyond cardigans and sweaters.  It also extends into dress territory.  This knit dress with the beautiful southwest print by Catherine Malandrino has been sitting in a drawer of my dresser waiting to be worn for over a year.  I finally took it out on the perfect night.  I paired it with a fringe beige Abercrombie scarf and some turquoise hoop earrings.  My large Jimmy Choo bag that I lugged all around Europe one summer completed the look.  I picked up these Sergio Rossi brown ankle boots at a recent Gilt sale.  I like the asymmetrical detailing and I felt like I had enough black ankle boots.  These photos were taken indoors before leaving for dinner.  As you can see, I was getting pretty hungry!
