Hi friends, hope you’re having a wonderful October. I can’t believe Halloween is a few days away already! What are you wearing this year? Today I’m writing about an outfit that I’ve been wearing on repeat this month that takes me from work to cocktail.
As a modern woman, I like feeling powerful and that can be reflected in my outfits. Suits and the black-and-red classy combination are the perfect pair in my opinion. If you’ve known me for a while, you know I have a thing for BCBG blazers, because they’re tailored so well to just gives the best silhouette you could ask for. And the secret to having long legs when wearing suit? Ankle pants. I’m wearing this pair from Banana Republic that cuts at the right place in the ankle. I have been literally living in these pants this past month. They’re very professional looking, yet still chic to wear to a bar.
To complete the outfit, I chose a pair of red pumps from Aldo, and the IT Bag of the moment – Gucci Dionysus. I had been eyeing this beauty for ages and finally took the plunge this summer to take her home. It just gives the perfect detail to this monochromatic outfit.
If you’re wondering where my top is from, you may have to be disappointed this time. It’s a small Chinese brand where my mom found at a department store in Beijing. But I love the lace and ruffles details that makes it very feminine, which balances the masculinity off the black suits perfectly.
And did I say that I absolutely love the CityCenterDC and the National Portrait Gallery Aren’t they just gorgeous shooting locations? 😛
I hope you enjoyed this post! I’m excited to be shooting sweaters, trench coats and boots in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for more fall fashion!
