White Fall Dress….two ways

I bought this gorgeous beaded white dress from Zara, and I was planning on rocking it for Fall with thick tights. This pleasant weather,however, allowed me to wear the dress bare legged with my Rag & Bone boots. I couldn’t decide what coat to wear with it, so I decided to try out two different looks. First, I paired the dress with this incredible leopard coat I got from Nordstrom! What a great buy! It’s waterproof and super warm!  A leopard coat is a staple every girl should have in her closet, and at this price, it’s worth it!  Second, I tried it on with the sweater I bought at the Margiella for H&M preview I attended two weeks ago. (I love how designers are making their lines more affordable for the general public by doing collaborations!)  I love the look of white on white as well. What was that rule about white after Labor Day? Yea….right…..so 10 years ago! LOL  BTW, I am loving my Pamela Love medium tribal spike necklace! (Last seen HERE). It’s bold, unique, and makes any outfit more special!

I paired two of Fall’s biggest trends for a fresh look: metallics and burgundy.  I found this awesome metallic skirt at Minusey for a great price.  I think the skirt adds a great pop of color in this dark, dismal Fall weather!  My burgundy quilted Balenciaga jacket is still my favorite Fall piece, and the color is just amazing.  I shot these photos in Astoria where I live……LOVE this city!  All photos by the amazing Katharine Andriotis.
