Now Wearing...

I bought this Costello Tagliapietra for Uniqlo just a couple weeks ago, but I've already worn it three times! It's appropriate for the office, but also great for the weekend. It's super comfortable and looks great with just about any belt.

You can find this dress and the rest of the Costello Tagliapietra x Uniqlo collection in-store now, but going fast!
Because I love color, I like to wear this charcoal colored dress with my bigger coats and jackets. In this case, I choose to top it off with my bright blue cape, which is basically just a well cut blanket.

My other obsession of the moment is my Lulu bag from Katherine Kwei; I carry it almost everyday! The lovely gray matches almost everything, and the combination of handles and shoulder strap make it super convenient.

I used to feel like I needed a bigger bag for work, but since I carry most documents on a USB stick rather than in a physical folder, it's truly the perfect size for me. It fit my two phones (work & personal), camera, wallet, misc necessities, and sometimes even a scarf with room to spare.

Plus, every time I sport this tote I think of the lovely Lulu S/S 11 video directed by Celia Rowlson-Hall.

Lani, I love this outfit! It is very well cut and plays a good mix of neutral and pop colors. I've been wanting to try new silhouettes but it seems to always stay in my mind. Bravos to you!

Love that gray purse. Super handsome bag. Bolsters your simpler outfits and could take a strong backseat to your more outlandish ones.
