We did a dinner double date in Downtown LA, followed by a friend’s work-loft open house. It was a great time to get my first use out of the only piece I got my hands on from the highly coveted collection that hit stores in September.
Excuse any grain or blur, I was only able to get a couple snaps in right before dark, but the palette of golden-mustard and royal-navy was absolutely perfect for a warm fall evening. I brought along a navy and white striped longline cardigan (not pictured) for when it cooled down, which mixed nicely with the leopard for an interesting visual contrast. With two bold patterns happening at once, I kept my heel choice simple and neutral. The combination couldn’t have been better for Saturday night cocktails in Downtown LA with a view of the city from a sweet industrial loft.
