Dressing for a Midnight in Paris
As an extension of the Taste Architecture- Midnight in Paris feature, I wanted to share with you what I wore that evening. The dress code for the event was “Parisian Chic.” This gorgeous dress is one of the few pieces from my pre-pregnancy wardrobe that still fits- thanks to the adjustable waist with the rope detailing. I rarely like animal print on clothing. While other people carry that pattern effortlessly, on me I feel like it looks tacky. I only have 2 animal print pieces in my closet- one is a Jimmy Choo clutch (shown here and here), and this dress- which almost doesn’t count because the pattern remains subtle, only hinting at the idea of an animal print, which I love. The more pieces I have by Yigal Azrouël, the more I appreciate the unexpected, playful touches in his designs. With this dress it’s the hint of Kelly green trimming on the edges. I matched the color and the pattern with my neon-edged python heels (shown here).
Also, I wanted to share 2 cool tidbits that I didn’t include in the Taste Architecture- Midnight in Paris feature:
- Woody Allen actually dined with us in the same restaurant that evening, by pure coincidence!
- While the NoMad Hotel Restaurant has become a dining favorite among celebrities like Katie Holmes and Marion Cotillard, this past Monday, July 30, 2012, President Barack Obama attended a fund-raising event at the NoMad Hotel and later dined at The Cupola.
