I love leather and when done well it has that same power suit feeling that many wore back in the day with huge shoulder pads. Typically when I wear it, it may be a pair of pants or a skirt but when I saw this dress that was a mix of mod and a little nod to Tina Turner in Mad Max Beyond the Thunderdome (she had something like this style on when she says "two men enter, one man leaves - ps this was overheard at an event last night as we brainstormed something fun that I pray actually happens, deets to follow and thanks for the quote @FashionStBeauty), I knew that this could be an amazing look for a night out, if you're hosting an amazing band release or anything where you want that mix of edge and femme to come together. I feel that this dress is so powerful that you have to continue with strong pieces and I am a huge fan of monotone (when done right of course).
I love the disco cuff which adds another edgy quality and is longer than the typical cuff. The dress is as much of an accessory as whatever you add into it which is a rarity. Love love love Miniaudiere's in general and this skin is so exotic and from Rebecca Minkoff (loved having tea time with her in her studio last night, follow up to come but Rebecca's so down to Earth and has a fab personality) - this is the perfect item to have nearby with your basic essentials. Finally, Tory Burch has a fab pair of hiking boots that's a mix of camp couture. The tassels are fun, the laces are epic and of course having the heel and coming up to the calf is a great look. Love the sexy vibe they send and there is another version of this shoe that is a taller boot that has a wrap detail that I'm also a huge fan so check out the site. Together this look is perfect for something that I am in total sync with Kimora on - finding a dress (or look) that is perfect for Global Domination, that's a fab mantra going into 2011!
