night at the theater

I'm kinda loving this deer in the headlights look....

{VS dress, jacket purchased in NYC, Chinese Laundry pumps circa 2008, Fabricated [Los Angeles] earring, vintage Bottega Venetta hobo}


This is what I wore for a live theater performance last week. I wanted to keep it elegant, yet still maintain an edge. So what do you add to a beautiful silk off the shoulder dress to play up its features? Well leopard pumps, a leather sleeved jacket with oversize collar, and a single startling blue feather earring of course! It just wouldn't be me if it wasn't over the top people.

I've recently been very much into leopard printed shoes as you can tell here, but as long as I can remember feather earrings have been a beautiful boho vibe I have always wanted to pull off. Well I never quite found my perfect feather earrings, they were too short, not full enough or just ugly. But ever since the girls over at Fabricated [Los Angeles] sent over this Blue Sword Feather earring I have been smitten. The color is the best part, its actually quite beautiful without being so abrasive, and I love that it is a single piece- two of these just might be over the top!
