Farewell mandals! Balenciaga vest, Club Monaco t-shirt, Marc Jacobs leather pants, Proenza Schouler sandals
The folks at Elie Tahari were nice enough to invite me to a little shindig a couple weeks ago, and as outfit posts pile up (seriously, every time I think a break is around the corner, things just ramp up even more!), I thought the juxtaposition between this very modern outfit and the below, styled by Mr. Tahari himself almost wrote itself! The wonderful Guerre of Guerreisms took pictures of all the attendees in the window wearing Tahari's wares. If all that wasn't good enough, the inimitable (and fellow Canadian) Joe Zee was on hand to supplement Mr. Tahari's styling capabilities. Not bad for a Tuesday night, huh? As someone who has always associated Tahari with solid, if not predictable, office wear, I was fortunately surprised to see that the brand has grown past that and included some great fashion-forward pieces for Fall (like a great silk leopard trench, pant, and a ruby velvet suit (very 90s Tom Ford)). My favorite was the black floor length below that Mr. Tahari took to an Old Hollywood level--a place I don't go too often, but was happy to visit!. Goes to show--don't pigeon hole yourself! You can go anywhere in your fashion dreams--that's what makes it so great!
