It was a thrill to be invited to a "Bollywood" themed event recently and a challenge to come up with a look that would suit the motif! Luckily, I had just fallen in love with a gorgeous emerald green draped silk skirt by Carolina Herrera while doing a photo shoot for Patron Magazine and brought it home! I paired the skirt with a pink lace Cosabella underpinning, a white sheer long sleeve top also by Cosabella and wide shiny black Alice & Olivia belt. To give the look even more fun and sparkle, I found bright bejeweled earrings and a bracelet that I purchased from a bellydancing website. They looked perfect combined with my Alexis Bittar gold cuff, Tiffany Paloma Picasso enameled bracelets and a bindi placed on my forehead or "third eye".
I discovered the black suede Carolina Herrera leggings/sandals in a store window several months ago, but learned that they were not available here in the US. However, the store manager helped me locate a pair in Madrid and I was able to arrange to have them shipped to me. In addition to being beautiful and versitile, they offer the soft, luxurious warmth of leggings with the added bonus of a beautiful sandal.
Footnote: I recently wore the leggins/sandals with a Calypso St Barth A line dress and it created a completely different look but it goes to show how versatile they are. You will be seeing these again in future W4 posts!
