Last week, I co-hosted a fashion show in Washington DC showcasing some really talented local designers, including Michelle Gibson. I wanted to wear an original design for the show, and it was a no-brainer when I tried this dress on. I love the body-hugging style (luckily the one she had hanging in her studio fit me like a glove), and the faux leather fabric turns an otherwise classic silhouette into a modern, sexy look.
I wanted to look polished and professional for the show, so I topped the dress off with a slim-fitting jacket with a distinct “moto” feel. I love these booties that fit like socks – such a slick look for day. To turn this into an evening look for the event, I switched them out for a pair of cage booties like these and my favorite fishnet stockings. A simple black shoulder bag with silver chains like this one kept the look simple, chic and edgy – my favorite combination for any outfit!
