Today’s look-of-the-day is of taupe and light grey shades. I had quite an adventure putting it together. It started when I was trying to wrap the Cuban bean necklace around my wrist and it broke. I’m now finding beans in the most unlikely of places in my room. Some of the beans must have flown and rolled pretty far to end up where they did: in one of my boots in the closet, on the TV, and unfortunately for one of them – underneath my foot as I stepped on it (about a minute ago). Well, that’s one of the potential drawbacks of all this fashionista play. There are unavoidable losses to be had. Anyhow, I think it’s a small price to pay for a look (at least in this case). I gathered all the beans that I could find, without waisting too much time, and put together a smaller necklace. It was originally about double the length of what you see here. I guess you could say that my little, one-convertable-peso worth, Cuban-bean-necklace took one for the team :).

I also modified the dress a little. I took off the ribbon belt it originally came with and wrapped it around my wrist into a bracelet. I then paired the dress with the Rough Roses belt. I find that the ribbon belt makes the dress look a little too…I don’t know…home-made maybe. My dear mama bought me this dress in Italy and I love it but feel the need to make it my own. LOL, this reminds me of Seinfeld’s stand-up act I saw a while ago where in response to an “I love you” from an audience member he said “I love you too, but I do feel the need to see other people.” Classic :).

What I’m wearing:

  • Dress by “Alexandra”
  • Suede sleeveless coat by “Isaac Sellam”
  • Leather belt by “Rough Roses”
  • Shoes by “Guillaume Hinfray”
