I’m a sucker for muted hues of ivory, rose and taupe.  And I’m sure this is all Olivia Pope’s doing.  Thanks, Scandal costume department.

One. This skirt from Topshop reminds me of this silk and organza Temperley London dress that I’ve been stalking on Net-a-Porter.  Though the skirt is much, much cheaper.  I love the dusty rose color and the hint of sheer, it’s so refined.  Looking for a more modern way to wear sheer and organza?  This sleeveless top from Need Supply Company fits the bill.

Two.  The mix of materials in this cuff is so incredible.  It’s not hard to see why it sold out during the week that I was waiting to feature it in this post.  In the under-$100 category, I found this cool bracelet that pairs colored pearls with industrial style cables and this pearl, crystal and black metal bracelet.  And if a simpler bracelet is your game, I loved this mother-of-pearl stretch cuff from JCPenney.

Three. My obsession with Otte NY’s signature blouses continues. This is the Momo blouse in a stunning smoke color.  If you’re looking for something similar for less, Loft has a tie-neck peasant blouse with a fuller sleeve that’s a good substitute.

Four. I chose to feature this glitter sandals from J.Crew over the blush-colored Max Kibardin heels that caught my eye.  Both shoes have an ethereal quality that makes the metallic sparkly, but not heavy.  In the under-$150 price range, these gold Ivanka Trump braided t-straps have a similar look and these blush suede pumps have grey glitter on the heel for a bit of sparkle.

Five. This Vince Camuto horn clutch is the right mix of strong and feminine.  I love the pale color and the horn detail on the clasp.  The brand makes this bag in several colors including a gorgeous dark grey and black with woven material.  And if you like embellishment on the clasp of your clutches, try this resin clasp from DvF or this inexpensive metallic clutch with a crystal clasp from Nine West.  Or if you want the original, and still piece de resistance, the Alexander McQueen with skull clasp is just the ticket.

Six. I’ve featured this dress before, but I’ve worn it so many times, and received so many compliments, that I wanted to plug it again.  If you decide to buy it, two tips: size up one size, and buy some very smooth undergarments because the crepe shows every flower in your lace Hanky Panky.  Lessons learned the hard way.

Seven. How incredible is this bag?  I love the textured scallops (it looks a bit like fish scales) and the mink-colored suede.  It’s just to die for.  I had some serious difficulty finding anything similar in a lower price point.  The only thing that I could find was a smaller bag by the same designer that is $309 and comes in the mink and black.

Eight.  Intermix sells this crochet lace skirt (more ivory than it’s photo) as an exclusive, and it’s the best looking lace skirt I’ve ever seen in this price range.  It’s not cheap looking at all and the crochet is nice and thick for durability.  They also sell a matching lace peplum top to give you the look of a dress.  However, the top isn’t lined so you’ll need a nude tank, or if you’re feeling bold, a colored one.

I own the top, and recently wore it over this strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline.  It gave me more coverage without sacrificing the bright color of the dress.

Nine.  Who doesn’t love pretty, lacy underpinnings?  But this price is a bit ridiculous.  Okay, a lot ridiculous, even for La Perla.  My favorite designers for nice lingerie that won’t break the bank are Elle McPherson, Blush and b.tempted by Wacoal.  Eberjey is also nice for undergarments that are pretty and comfortable.

    Love the gold glitter sandals – both pairs! Do you have any suggestions for a heel that is under 3 inches? I need a pair of gold sandals for a wedding I am in and will not be able to make it the whole night in 4+ inch heels! Thanks.

    Love the bag. Would totally get it if it were leather.

Yesterday, we chatted about not-see-through tees. Today, I want to talk about jeans. I am so grateful wide leg denim is back in a big way. And if you’re going to the office, you need a trouser style jean to see you through the week (or just casual Friday). Here are some favorites in different […]
