This past Saturday I hosted a fashion presentation at
focusing on holiday looks, resort wear and gift ideas for the woman over 30. This is our sweet spot at Second City Style. As you know, we believe Neiman Marcus any woman can wear the current trends. They sometimes just need a little tweaking. It starts with being completely honest with yourself about your flaws (hiding those) and your best attributes (highlighting those). Also staying away from your daughter’s closet really helps too.
The pre-show set-up
My dream table of shoes and bags! Especially the Celine bag in the middle!
Here I am cracking a funny I’m sure. I can’t be too serious. Ever.
Here is Victoria wearing a holiday outfit that is perfect for going from the office to a party. Take off jacket and add pumps and a clutch. She’s wearing; Marni embellished top, Ralph Lauren black pants, Charlotte Olympia heels, Stella McCartney clutch
Why wear expected red, green or gold for the holidays? How about blue and green? Here is Ksusha wearing; Micheal Kors green, blue and black dress, Prada pointed heels
Here is Victoria wearing the Cool Blue Trend which is huge for Resort and Spring 2013. Wear any shade of blue when it comes to your apparel and/or accessories. Victoria is wearing; Elizabeth & James blazer; Equipment electric blue top; 7 for all Mankind waxed pants; Charlotte Olympia kitty slippers (a carryover trend from the fall), Celine yellow cross body bag
Here is Victoria again wearing orange which is a believe it or not, NEUTRAL for Spring 2013. She’s wearing; Rebecca Taylor Jacket, Equipment blouse, J Brand pants, Prada orange heels
Even though a pop of bright color is big for Resort, white always works too. Especially if there is a peplum involved. Ksusha is wearing; Burberry White dress and Prada pumps
I have said it a million times, Helmut Lang is one line that transcends the ages. It looks great on women who are 25-55 and there are not too many lines we say that about! Victoria is wearing; Helmut Lang jacket; Helmut Lang sheer top; Theory leather pants (the leather leg is HUGE, get a pair now!), Charlotte Olympia heels
You can’t ever go wrong with a YSL clutch.
The final two looks? Well I already explained Victoria’s and Ksusha is wearing; Helmut Lang leather jacket; Helmut Lang printed dress (the print trend isn’t going anywhere), Rag & Bone booties.
That’s me pointing to shoes and bags that range from Celine and Proenza Schouler to Marc by Marc Jacobs and Pour La Victoire.
Yes, that would be me at the gifting table with my two favorite things…a cocktail recipe book and holding La Mer. Yeah!
All items pictured on the models and tables are available at Neiman Marcus.
What I’m wearing:
Dress: Alice + Olivia Beckett Gathered Top Drape Skirt Dress, now $264
Jacket: ADAM by Adam Lippes (no longer available), this LOFT Boiled Wool Blend Cropped Jacket, $89.50 is similar.
