Today’s outfit pairs a red check vest from Anthropologie with a frilly tulle skirt from Zara. Beneath the tulle skirt are my Eileen Fisher harem pants with the legs pulled up to form a balloon skirt. This gives a foundation for the tulle skirt. The vest is layered over a black blouse with lace sleeves. I have cinched my waist with a black leather belt from Marni.
This outfit is topped off with a modern version of a black Victorian Riding Hat. It has a small veil attached. It was designed by Ako Tombo Millinery (Japan). The velvet black boots are a Steve Madden design and were found at Nordstrom last month. The red leather cube chain bag was found while touring Venice last year.
Nestled inside the neckline of my blouse is a red coral necklace with a coral encrusted silver Sante Fe Cross designed by Rocki Gorman from her Quintessential Sante Fe Collection. I am also wearing vintage silver and red coral earrings from Mexico and vintage Bakelite bangles on my wrist. I have added a red coral bracelet to this stack.
