What We're Wear'n

Grabmol and I decided that every so often our work outfit deserve to be shared with others besides the floor we sit on. Today is one such day.
I think we represent the perfect mix of hi-lo dressing. Today Yenta Girl is wearing a fab new dress from Diane von Furstenberg that I (yes, I just switched to 1st person) picked up in Miami. It was on sale (40% off) at the DVF store in Merrick Park. I have had several compliments today and although we don't have a DVF store in Atlanta, you can get her designs from Saks and other small boutiques. I really love the dress- it's made from 100% silk. I was told by my dear friend KJF that it looked very Native American inspired and I should wear it with a feather, but she insisted that I could pull it off. Frankly I don't care- I love the dress. I am also looking forward to throwing a light jacket over it with a pair of whiskey colored riding boots I got last season from Coach. Although the colors are bright, I think this dress can be worn from spring though fall.

As for shoes, these are a pair of Pradas I picked up from Jeffrey's in Phipps (see earlier blog) for 75% off. I love them and they are the one new pair that I got this summer. I am a firm believer in only wearing good shoes. They make an outfit. I am willing to buy shoes once a year when they go on clearance sale rather than buy many pairs of inexpensive shoes. These are seriously high, even for me (4 inches). I was dumb enough to wear them on the flight home (girls do silly things with their boyfriends are picking them up at the airport) but they are surprising comfortable for being so high. I love how versatile they are.

Grabmol is sporting Richard Chai for Target (the latest Go International Designer to be featured by Target). I can't say enough good things about their Go line. I love that Target features new and up-and-coming designers and makes them accessible for everyone. I am not sure if the photo does the dress justice, but it has great rouching with some simple boning on the bodice. As for her accessories, those are Target as well. The yellow necklace provides a really fun, funky contrast to the black linen dress.

The shoes are Mossimo gray flats with yellow detailing (they match the necklace perfectly). The shoes work great with this simple dress and provide a pop of color. These flats would also work great with a pair of dark jeans and a simple white tee. According to Grabmol they are surprisingly comfortable.
