Daily: Subtle and Notorious

Have you been following any of the New York Fashion Week coverage? I’ve been keeping up with bloggers, particularly through Twitter. My favorite so far is Marc by Marc Jacobs. Such bright pops of color! Such streamlined silhouettes! Such minimalism! Here’s the breakdown:

Blazer: Garage sale
Blouse: Garage sale (Ann Taylor LOFT)
Skirt: Banana Republic
Heels: Plato’s Closet (Steve Madden)
Bag: Brahmin (c/o Vogue)
Watch/Bracelets: Garage sale/Dillard’s

Linen is notorious for wrinkling the second you look at it, so you can imagine my hesitance when I pulled it out to wear to a client meeting for a class yesterday. However, what changed my mind was the subtle shimmer that’s woven in the linen. The shimmer threads give the blazer a glow that’s hard to capture in pictures. I love the blazer, and I wanted to break up the black-skirt-on-black-blazer look. Hence, my notorious, yet subtle blazer!
