Anatomy of an Outfit: 10/24/2007

Filed under: Fashion — Elle October 30, 2007 @ 6:23 pm

So I know half my readers dislike my posts about Kate Spade, yoga mats, shoes, and general consumer whoredom. But since I’ve been fielding numerous inquiries about what I was wearing at the True Love Revolution discussion, I decided to oblige with a blog post. Forgive me?

At the discussion, this was the outfit:

And here’s the breakdown:


White silk cocktail dress, BCBG MAX AZRIA


Black heels with lace-up back, Stuart Weitzman


Cocktail ring, Second Time Around on Newbury St.


Coat (laying over my chair), Milly

    Terrific outfit. You look the perfect combination of poised, smart and sexy. Please pardon my corniness, but, YOU GO GIRL!

    Love the shoes! Like the dress as well. But what was your debate adversary wearing?

  4. Valley Girl Says:

    Gorgeous outfit, Lena!!! Classy, yet sexy. I would’ve guessed Narcisso Rodriguez and Jimmy Choo! I love the extra touch that the cocktail ring lent the outfit, too.

    Btw, I love your consumer whoredom posts.

    Cute outfit, but it doesn’t seem very appropriate for an academic debate…
    Gah, I sound like my dad. Carry on.

  9. mo Says:

    wow i am in LOVE with that coat!

  10. Valley Girl Says:

    MM: Who said academic debates can’t have a little sex appeal injected into them? I think its the perfect outfit! You don’t have to have a sweater tied around your shoulders to make intelligent points.

    [...] * Just found my BCBG dress online in black and gold. It is always so weird to see a clothing item I think there’s only one version of in a completely different color palette. Thankfully, I prefer my version. [...]
