What I Wore: Ruffles




Blouse: Antonio Berardi
Jeans: MiH
Pumps: YSL

I admit...I'm in a style rut. I've been quite lazy lately in the wardrobe department (the last two days have been rainy/cold/or a combination of the two), and I apologize for the terribly obscene yellow undertone in these photos. (I can't seem to get a bright shot without flash and without the yellow tone.)

This blouse reminds me of Givenchy's darkly romantic fall line, but when I purchased this blouse, the designer's name sounded vaguely familiar. Apparently, after Gwyneth Paltrow wore his designs, he became much more recognizable as a label. If you're not familiar with his work, check it out. I surveyed his incredibly beautiful clothes on Style.com and was pretty amazed that his name wasn't on my fashion radar until now.

I've vaguely heard of Antonio Berardi, but I'm definitely a fan after this seeing this top on you. It's beautiful with such wonderful detail. And what do you mean, style rut!? I beg to differ!
But I also hate dressing up in cold weather...that's why I love summer!

Thumbelina - This blouse looks beautiful on you. The NY weather sound so cold :). When are you coming back to work?
Take care-

I only saw a very small selection of Antonio Berardi once in a tiny boutique, but I do remember how wonderful the quality and detailing was. The blouse is gorgeous and suits you so well. A great find!

Every time I see you rock those YSL pumps I feel a little grumblier that I don't have a pair... Great outfit.

I love ruffles. This blouse would have gone great with some pants in another color.
