As I sit in the corner and reflect over a beautiful New York skyline view, I am grateful for every thing. Spending time with a great friend catching up and enjoying each other’s positive vibes. This experience unconsciously reminding me of the woman I am today and the things that are important to me such as friendship and sisterhood. The views of the skyline encouraging me that the world is mine.
I’m currently rocking a vintage Versace pant suit with Fendi shoes and a jitney bag by Off White for another fun pop of color. First off let me say this was one of a few of my greatest finds at Barney’s. The tailoring of this suit as well as the fit is fantastic to say the least. The jitney bag by Off white was a pickup from shopbop.com who often has amazing sales on accessories and clothes. Hot pink is a beautiful color for summer and even a pop of color when paired with black and other neutrals. I personally took a risk, pairing the hot pink with the warm lime color. It paid off for a comfortable, feminine, not over the top sexy look that is perfect for day and a bold hue at night.
I paired the suit back to pink because I enjoy pops of color and fun bright looks. Color is not a go to for me on a day to day basis but I love color for a good time out with friends. I find wearing brighter and bolder hues to be a great way to boost my mood. I am so fine with a kitten heel. These Fendi ones feature and all over mesh and sculpted heel. They are super lightweight and comfy!
I truly believe the universe brought me to find these vintage Versace pieces. I was having a rough day at work adjusting to the horrible makeover dear beloved Barney’s had gotten. Big red signs everywhere telling of the latest news like a sad love song, “Good buys, then Goodbye”. Slowly the place was becoming more liquidation and less Barney’s. I decided to take a break from the sales floor to explore the other floors for clothing that was coming in from the other locations that closed and also from the warehouse since the online site shut down. (now rerouted to Saks)
Within minutes of my self care time, there they were hanging all alone. A two piece fitted Versace pantsuit in a warm lime color just perfect for my complexion. There was no price tag so I asked my manager about it and I promise you I did not break the bank at all. The price was under $100! #bestdayever #Versacehottie
