OUTFIT OF THE WEEK: MINT CONDITION

 

In many ways fashion is like art; captivating to look at and a visual form of expression. This week our outfit and the art world collide, starting off with an eye pleasing dress. Roksanda's covetable aesthetic shines with this green and blue stretch crepe blend 'Arley' creation. Cut to a fitted silhouette, this design features cut-out detailing to the neck, short sleeves, a front slit and exposed back zip. Interesting details like these are often art influenced and instantly add a uniqueness to your look. Our shoe choice takes an art-deco turn with Christian Louboutin's 'Tucsick' pumps. They are crafted in Italy from curved geometric panels of mint and white patent leather that flatter the arch and shape of your feet. This pointed toe pair is trimmed with sparkling gold glitter and finished with the brand's signature red sole. For our bag, one of our favorite accessory designers, Olympia Le Tan, borrowed inspiration from Sandro Botticelli's famous painting 'The Birth of Venus'. The cover is hand embroidered and detailed with felt on a cotton canvas body with a designer stamped brass metal frame. If this piece doesn't scream 'art enthusiast' we're not sure what would. Keeping our jewelry on the affordable side, mint green faceted stones and dangling simulated pearls make these LC Lauren Conrad drop earrings a modern classic. Polishing things off with a a hint of watercolor pastel, Stila's highly pigmented, waterproof eyeliner glides on to deliver intense, vibrant color with staying power. This julep inspired shade may not be in your usual makeup routine, but it's a fun way to shake up your look for the day. Whether you are visiting you local gallery hop or just lunching with friends, your 'Mint Condition' look is sure to be a memorable one.
