Rocking Around…

Susana Fernandez | A Key to the Armoire

Susana Fernandez | A Key to the Armoire

I love how the Holidays give you an excuse to dress up, even if it is just to go out for drinks or dinner with friends or family. This is that kind of outfit.

The shape of this coat is fantastic; so structured and shaped, but when I decided to wear it as a dress, I had to think about what to wear underneath, since it only has buttons on the waist and it opens when I sit. I decided to “rock” the lady-like shape with these treated-fabric leggings that look like leather. I added colored ribbons to my sandals so they would match my clutch, and repeated the color in the brooch. I messed and teased my ponytail for a “wilder” look, and was out the door!

By the way, in this post you’ll see something new: a video! From time to time, I’ll try to make some videos to answer things that people ask me about. In this one, I’m addressing the ribbons in my shoes. I hope you like it! 

I Wore:
  • Wool-Silk Coat Dress with Silk Satin Trim: Magaschoni (similar here)
  • Treated Fabric Leggings: No tag, but I think they were Hue (similar here and here) 
  • Cotton Camisole (worn underneath): French Dressing (similar here) 
  • Peau de Soie Sandals: Cole-Haan (similar here and here) Refashioned with ribbons (see video below) 
  • Peau de Soie Bow Belt: From a Isaac Mizrahi dress (similar here) 
  • Leather and Patent Leather Clutch: Cole-Haan, Jelly Bean Penny (here)
  • Earrings: Gold and cut rock crystal (similar here and here)
  • Ring: Cut rock Swarovski crystal (similar here) 
  • Flower Brooch: Gold-plated enamel and crystals, Jay Strongwater (similar here) 
  • Gold and Mother-of-Pearl Watch: Fendi (similar style here, and more affordable, here)
  • Perfume: So de la Renta, (here) Many people ask me the kind of perfume I wear. This has been my signature scent for quite a while. I find that it is both fresh and flirty, light and feminine, and very classic. When I looked online, I was pleasantly identified by the description in the Oscar de la Renta site: “For the spontaneous, energetic woman who spreads her enthusiasm everywhere she goes. A radiant, sparkling scent.” And also, “So de la Renta revels in the elegant, unexpected, playful side of the Oscar woman.”

Me encanta como las fiestas siempre nos dan una excusa perfecta para arreglarnos, incluso si es sólo para salir a tomar algo o a cenar con amigos o con la familia. Éste conjunto es de esos.

El corte de este vestido-abrigo es fantástico; con mucha forma y estructura, pero cuando decidí usarlo como vestido, tuve que pensar qué ponerme debajo, ya que sólo tiene botones en la cintura y se abre cuando me siento. Decidí darle un toque “rockero” al corte femenino del vestido-abrigo utilizando unos leggings de tela tratada que parecen cuero. Añadí cintas de colores a mis sandalias para que combinaran con mi cartera/bolso de mano, y repetí el color en el broche. Me despeiné y cardé la cola de caballo para un aspecto mas “desordenado”, y estuve lista para salir!

Por cierto, en esta entrada verán algo nuevo: un video! De vez en cuando, trataré de hacer algunos videos para contestar cosas que la gente me pregunta. En éste, les cuento sobre los lazos de mis zapatos. Espero que les guste!

Me Puse: 
  • Vestido-Abrigo de Seda y Lana, con Borde de Satén de Seda: Magaschoni (similar aqui)
  • Leggings de Tela Tratada: Sin etiqueta, pero creo que eran Hue (similar aquiaqui) 
  • Camisola de Algodón (por debajo): French Dressing (similar aqui) 
  • Sandalias de Peau de Soie: Cole-Haan (similar aqui y aqui) Re-diseñadas con lazos (ver video) 
  • Cinturón de Peau de Soie: De un vestido de Isaac Mizrahi (similar aqui) 
  • Bolso/Cartera de Mano de Patente y Raso: Cole-Haan, Jelly Bean Penny (aqui) 
  • Pendientes/Zarcillos: De oro con cristal de roca cortado (similar aqui y aqui)
  • Anillo/Sortija de Cóctel: De cristal de roca cortado, Swarovski (similar aqui) 
  • Broche de Flores: De bronce bañado en oro y esmalte con cristales de roca, Jay Strongwater (similar here) 
  • Reloj de Oro y Madreperla: Fendi (estilo similar aqui y mas asequible, aqui)
  • Perfume: So de la Renta, (aqui) Mucha gente me pregunta qué perfume uso. Ésta ha sido mi fragancia por bastante tiempo. Encuentro que es fresca y coqueta, ligera y femenina, y muy clásica. Cuando busqué la descripción en la página de Oscar de la Renta, quedé gratamente identificada con lo que decía: “Para la mujer espontánea y energética que reparte su entusiasmo dondequiera que va. Una fragancia radiante y chispeante.” Y también, ”So de la Renta se deleita en el lado elegante, inesperado y divertido del tipo de mujer que representa Oscar de la Renta.”
