Suede and fringe is always a fun combination in a piece of clothing. This two piece set from Tamara Mellon works well right now and will transition into fall. I paired it with Alaia wedges and a Nina Ricci bag. Shop the entire look below. You can subscribe to my YouTube channel to see all my videos.
My boyfriend thought I looked like a fringe flapper from the 1920s in this look. As you know, I have a strong affinity for fringe so it came as no surprise that when I saw this skirt and top set I had to snag it. The fringe suede skirt caught my eye first and had a really perfect fit. I loved it so much I then went after the top. The top has more of a loose, boxy fit and extra room in the armpit area, but since it is cropped it all works out fine. I wore the two pieces together for their first outing, which is unusual for me. I usually don't like to do that, but I think I will be wearing each piece separately very soon. The possibilities for styling these two pieces are endless and they work in the summer and fall. These are my first pieces from Tamara Mellon, but I am very impressed.
On my feet are some extremely comfortable wedges sandals from Alaia. I got lucky with these and snagged them at 50% off. That can still be pretty steep for Alaia shoes, but I consider it a steal. These shoes really cover that wide toe box area I have quite nicely. On my arm is a leather and suede bag that is somewhat of a classic I think. You can carry it over your shoulder as well. It has a unique design and it is my first Nina Ricci bag. My mom really likes her bags so I thought I would try them out. My Cartier watch has been seeing so much wear. It was a great birthday present from my boyfriend in Las Vegas. I have wanted this watch for years and it goes with absolutely anything. You've seen me wearing it with boyfriend jeans as well as skirts and dresses. This pair of sunglasses from Oliver Peoples is probably my favorite pair. I don't think they make these anymore, but if you are lucky you can find them around. I like them on my face. I really don't like oversized frames or cat eye ones that much on me. Sunglasses are one of those accessories that are often overlooked, but you would be surprised how often you wear them. Investing in a really good pair is definitely worth it. I am also wearing a diamond band ring that is dainty. I wanted to keep the jewelry minimal to keep the focus on the fringe two piece set.
This is one of our favorite places to shoot and you've seen it many times before. Since it is up a bit higher you can get a nice view of the mountains and some buildings from this spot. Unfortunately, I think it will be gone soon and in its place will be some huge apartment buildings. For now I will utilize it as much as possible. You can run into some weird people here as well who are getting off the train, but it makes it exciting as you never know what will happen.
