Mix/Match

Outfit #1: Leather Skirt: BCBG via Amazon Fashion, Shoes: Sergio Rossi, Leather Jacket: Juicy Couture, borrowed from Christine,  Handbag: thanks to Gucci, Sunglasses: Karen Walker.
Outfit #2: Blazer: Robert Rodriguez via Amazon Fashion, Skirt: Topshop, Tee: AA, Shoes: Chanel. Sunglasses: Ray Ban. Necklace: HStern (a gift from my family in Moscow - miss & love you guys!)
A few weeks ago, Amazon Fashion asked me to pick out an outfit to wear during NYFW. I always knew Amazon sold everything, but never realized what a substantial fashion department they had. After having way too many things in my shopping cart, I narrowed down to the BCBG Max Azria pleated leather skirt  I'm wearing in the first outfit and the Robert Rodriguez blazer I'm wearing in the second (was immediately drawn to the exaggerated shoulders). Days later, I mix and matched these classic pieces with my current wardrobe (minus the leather jacket, which I borrowed from Christine).

  7. i've always known that amazon sells everything, on the surface level of my brain, but never really extended that thought to understanding that meant clothes and jewelry.... now, i definitely want to do some online window shopping! and i love the juxtaposition of feminine pleats with the black leather!
