You know my usual sentiments on color, but I was feeling a date night look that needed a little more edge than what a nude, strappy, patent heel could offer. When it comes down to it, I’m just more comfortable in neutral pieces, like this gorgeous top and skirt combo from DTLA, so I tend to get super funky with accessories. True story, I almost walked out the door toting a blush pink clutch with gold hardware but reconsidered as a passed a mirror. It was still too much. There’s a little pattern play goin’ on here but if you’ve got a really killer statement piece to add to your outfit, try to keep the other pieces a little quieter. You’ll make a much louder statement this way. Unless you’re Anna Dello Russo… then get down with your badass self.
