Ivory Angora Wool, Black Chrome Boots

It's all about juxtaposition and balance. Soft and hard, ivory and black, slouchy and fitted.

Sweater: Viktor & Rolf. Leggings: J. Crew. Booties: Diane von Furstenberg.

When I saw this Viktor & Rolf alpaca wool turtleneck tunic for sale on La Garconne, I was instantly drawn to its voluminous softness.

The sweater feels amazing in person. It is soft, fluffy, and drapes beautifully. The tunic can be worn either below or on the hips; I went with the latter in order to lengthen my legs.

I had no trouble deciding on what footwear to pair with the sweater: my Diane von Furstenberg leather booties. The gold band at the wooden heel and the seam running down the front terminating in a slightly pointed toe combine to make this a unique, eye-catching bootie.

For the final contrast, I went with bold garnet lips: Red My Lips by Ken Downing for Le Metier de Beaute. A single piece of jewelry was all the ensemble needed.

Conclusion: a pitch-perfect harmony of counterbalancing elements. If I do say so myself.



  1. That rear end shot belongs in a magazine. Nicely done!

  2. Oh my! I did not expect on my little blog a comment from Charlestongirl, of all people, and about my rear end view, of all things. You have immaculate taste, so thank you!
