I purchased a beautiful Escada lace jacket on sale in Rome and a Dolce and Gabbana red silk tank top from the Cabazon outlet center.
I ditched the Hugo Boss stilettos for Manolo Blahnik pumps (love my stilettos but not always practical for a busy day). Finally I could justify a simple Joie leather miniskirt with the Escada lace jacket and Dolce and Gabbana silk tank.
PS. I am wearing Wolford tights but the legs — those are “Legs by Lucy” (Lucy Record) who trains ballet dancers at The Colburn School.
