AG Stilt Cigarette jean in “Wine”, size 24 (need a hem & waist taken in) :: Theory blazer, size 00 :: Old Navy sweater, size XS :: Ann Taylor Perfect Patent Belt, size XS :: Christian Louboutin Simple 85 Pumps, size 35 :: Linen pocket square from Italy :: Chanel East/West Handbag :: Jewelry – Honora pearl necklace, jet bead necklace, sterling silver bangles
Same outfit…different pants. I loved the vibrant mustard color, but I feel much more at ease in this darker, rich maroon.
These AG Stilt Cigarette jeans have a very subtle sateen finish to them and thanks to the modal blend fabric, are incredibly soft to the touch. But my favorite part is the color. Called “wine”, the deep purplish red is a sophisticated and toned down take on the colored pant trend. In a perfect world, they would have less creases in the front, but after trying on dozens of ill-fitting pants in similar hues, I’m more than happy to declare these keepers. They will need a hem and the waist taken in, but those are easy alterations that I get done often.
The pocket square is a linen handkerchief my parent’s brought back from their recent trip to Italy. One corner is decorated with lace and a fancy embroidered “K”. It’s from a little island near Venice called Burano which is known for their lacework. Such a special little piece to tuck into my blazer breast pocket!
And, in case you’re wondering…these are way more flattering to the ol’ behind than the mustard pair:
The back pockets are smaller and placed higher, which is much more flattering to my frame.
