Where: Triumph VIP Dinner at The Gherkin, London.
I’m sure this will come as a huuuuuge shock to you all but generally speaking, I’m not big on monochrome. Don’t get me wrong, it looks chic as hell on certain understated style setters (and just about every woman in Paris) but my personal mantra is more along the lines of “the brighter the better”. Well, as is so often the case, one particular ensemble forced me to rethink. I’ve had this adorable Whistles playsuit for several years now and haven’t worn it much because I’m either too pasty, it’s jacket weather (no jackets work with this, trust me) or I can’t figure out how to accessorize the thing. Well then the weather hit 30 degrees, I acquired a tan and more importantly, got my hands on these insanely cool Preen for ALDO Rise two strap sandals. Suddenly it made sense. Monochrome floral playsuit + minimalist accessories = effortless dinner party ensemble. Or at least I hope so… What do you think?
