My STLFW Style for Fashion’s Day Out

Today’s post shares what I wore on Fashion’s Day Out last Saturday.  Fashion’s Day Out occurred on day nine of the ten day Saint Louis Fashion Week extravaganza.  I attended events at Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus that day.

I wore an all black ensemble made interesting by its mixed textures and shapes—an unstructured silky blouse with a high-low hem paired with a lace skirt with a scalloped hemline.  I introduced color into the look by wearing the Kate Spade ‘coated confetti’ collar necklace, a statement piece with multicolor stones.  My cobalt blue pumps and brushstroke clutch added pops of color as well.

    You can't go wrong with black during fashion week, but I love how you added cobalt blue to your outfit – the Pantone color of 2014 🙂
