Hermes Clic-Clac H Wide Bracelet in Black Enamel - Worn before here with Kova & T lace dress and Fendi wedges
This Elizabeth and James dress is a beautiful piece that has been sitting in my closet for quite some time waiting for the perfect occasion to be worn. I decided I might as well wear it even if I had nowhere to go and I instantly felt glammed up the moment I slipped it on. I love how it is form-fitting on the bottom and loose and kimono-like on the top. It also has beautiful fabric covered buttons near the neck in the back and a large keyhole opening. Sometimes I get sick of wearing black and white all the time and I want to wear some color and this paprika Elizabeth and James dress did the trick.
I paired it with my leopard-printed mary jane sandals by Prada. I snagged these during Barneys holiday markdowns. I had my eye on them for quite some time and they still had my size for sale online when the price was reduced. I checked out as fast as I could because I had heard of online orders from Barneys getting canceled with late notice. I have another pair of leopard platform pumps by Prada from this season as well that I wore here, but they have more of a whitish leopard print than these. My boyfriend is now convinced that I have enough leopard shoes to last a lifetime. For jewelry, I chose this Hermes wide H bracelet that was a gift from my boyfriend a couple years ago. I love the simple elegance of the gold and black. The real treat is how this bracelet opens. The H moves up and down to open the bracelet, which I think makes it really unique.
