When I entered the mall last Saturday to find an outfit for Tutti Bambini’s Miami Ultimate Baby Affair, I was immediately caught by all the SALE signs at Express! Digging through the sales area, I found this tweed skirt with leather detailing and knew that it had to be mine. The top that I LOVED turned out to be too small (and it was the last one left), so I found this sweater hoping that it would work - and it did! I didn’t really know what to expect as a panel moderator but I knew that a killer outfit always calms my nerves. It’s incredible how much the right ensemble can heighten your confidence. Am I right ladies?

I love to mix prints, but I also love to mix fabrics in a monochromatic outfit to give it more depth. While the sweater is cotton and the skirt is tweed, the leather detailing on each of the separates tied the look together. The gold zippers on the skirt called for gold accessories with black and white elements. I also love to pair black stockings with black pumps because it gives the illusion that my legs are thinner and longer than they really are.
