All You Need Is Love
"We are asleep until we fall in love!
I was recently in the Meatpacking neighborhood of NYC to have dinner with friends when along the way, we passed by a wall advertisement featuring a quote from Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace.  I felt it was so appropriate as all I need is Love... 
I was so excited to wear my black high waisted DOLCE & GABBANA PENCIL SKIRT with embroidered lace panels. This particular skirt was featured in look 23 from the 2012 Fall/Winter collection. It was originally shown on the runway with an extremely lace-y white top and initially I thought I would pair it with something similar. After trying it with a couple of silk blouses that just didn't feel right, I decided on my RODARTE RADARTE T SHIRT . I liked the juxtaposition of wearing the skirt with something a little more casual. 
This ensemble included my Giuseppe Zanotti BLACK SUEDE CUT OUT SANDAL from Spring/Summer 2013. I wasn't looking for another black shoe, but these found me and once I put them on my feet I knew they were coming home with me. I instantly fell in love with the look of the cutouts against the skin and the slightly recessed heel. I carried my black patent leather YSL Belle du Jour. This clutch goes with everything and without a doubt, is one of my best investments to date.
