Press in a Dress

IMG_5982_edit-2

Right before I left LA, I had one last press event to attend, so I figured I would make use of this thin, pastel dress before I moved to a city that actually had colder seasons. I usually like dressing badass for press events, because I like to be taken seriously, but this time I opted for something a little more girlie.

For my accessories, I followed a black and white motif–sticking with silver accents. In my opinion, b&w is a “cooler palette,” which corresponds to silver metals (as opposed to warmer palettes, which correspond to gold.) Also, I stuffed a t-shirt inside my clutch so that it wouldn’t fall completely flat. A slightly bulkier clutch generally improves the quality of its appearance, making it look more expensive.

The reverse Peter Pan collar on this dress gives it a unique, unexpected youthfulness, while the pointy corners of the collar play really nicely with the zig-zags on my shoes. You might not be fully conscious of the small details that make an outfit feel cohesive, but tying your shapes together like that (corners, zig-zags,) gives an overall aesthetically pleasing impression.
