Embroidery is everywhere…on tops, dresses, bombers, jeans, heels, etc. etc. … and I’m loving it. I know, you’re thinking childhood needlework projects or grandma’s tapestries, but I promise you it’s everything right now and the easiest way to make any simple look special. And, if Anna Wintour and those of her ilk are wearing it, you know it’s “fashion.”
This weekend, I stepped out for a cozy Saturday brunch at Bespoke Kitchen in the West Village with my favorite fellow fashion blogger turned real life friend, SS (check out her insta @FashionRoll). We were way overdue for a catch-up session, had to chat about upcoming events for New York Fashion Week, and we couldn’t think of a better way to do all that than with some breakfast tacos and unlimited mimosas.
For our Saturday Funday, I decided to wear a few of my favorite embroidered pieces, including the comfiest pair of floral embroidered stacked heels that I recently purchased to jazz up my work wardrobe (if I’m going to wear all black every single day, I might as well inject a little fun on my feet, right?). Perhaps a little unconventional and unexpected, I decided to pair the embroidered heels with a nonmatching floral embroidered black mesh top layered over a black camisole (Style tip: For a night-worthy look, try wearing this top with a black bralette). I’m all about pattern play and embroidered pieces are no exception, but to keep the outfit from looking too busy, I broke the patterns up with my favorite pair of vintage jeans with raw stepped hem and classic Black Chanel flap bag. To give the look a little downtown edge and to contrast the dainty embroidery, I wore my go to charcoal faux fur parka and black double bridge black sunglasses.
