Modern Deco

The Staple: Faux Fur Collar Cardigan
Faux fur makes me think of more decadent times, when women wore opera gloves just to have cocktails. While I can’t exactly get away with that in 2012, there are elements to bring a bit of the past into fashion. For dinner and drinks, I kept it modern with a pencil skirt and cami then went retro with art deco jewelry and a vintage-inspired clutch. And clearly I have a thing for leopard and lace (evidence: here and here). So I finished it off with my lacy platforms.

If it’s colder where you live, this look would work equally as well with pumps and black sheer or opaque tights.

    Super bummed, should’ve bought this the first time I saw it and wanted it! They’re sold out online, guess I’ll have to try my luck in store. I bet your blog made it sell out! Kudos!
