I never need much of a reason to put on a pretty dress, so when I was invited to dinner on a Monday night I happily accepted. I chose to wear my purple ZERO + MARIA CORNEJO Folio dress from Spring / Summer 2012. It's V neck and silk with a touch of stretch; it was perfect for a warm New York City night. I was initially drawn to this dress mostly for the rich color, but I also loved the subtle draping in the front. Once I had the dress on, I realized that the best thing about this dress was the way it feels against the skin.
Although this dress possesses and natural ease and flow, I chose to add a belt. I wore my black elastic band Gucci belt from Fall / Winter 2008. It features a gold medallion of the Gucci crest. The outfit was finished with a pair of Gucci patent leather booties from the Spring / Summer 2008 collection. The black shoes, named the Newton, feature a peep toe and a heel detail covered in a gold tone calf skin leather. It is a mixture of gold and silver, a color the company created called platino.
