Soireé

Dress: Zimmermann (not in stock yet. Good selection of their stuff here & here).
Shoes: Louboutin (Sold out. Black/studded version here). 
Clutch: Edie Parker.
Earrings: Sutra.

This dress was love at first sight. The flirty prom shape and light weight fabric made it perfect for the Instyle 'Summer Soireé' and the paint splatters kept it from being too girly. 

I could have gone with a number of nude, silver, gold or even pink shoe options but I liked the unexpectedness of the coral Louboutin... plus they matched my nails. Bonus!

Thanks to Jeff Kim who helped me pull the whole look together!

I don't think you've ever worn anything that looked bad. If you wore a potato sack, it'd be chic.

I actually really like the coral shoes, very unexpected with the dress but perfect at the same time !

Sabrina said...

So incredibly gorgeous! Love how poofy and floaty it is! I'm also loving the little red splash details on it, almost like paint splashes. :) Those sandals are so cute and totally to die for!

Beautiful per usual!

Looking great in the Zimmermann dress.
I live in Australia so we get the newest stock first, Zimmermann being an Australian designer and all.. but so far it's far too cold to wear their gorgeous dresses. Jealous of your LA climate and eagerly awaiting summer xx
