In a Perfect World: What I would Wear Today

Thank you, lovely and creative Cordelia, for tagging me to do this fun game.

The Rules:

1. Choose runway pictures from ANY season you like and choose 3 outfits for Day, Evening & Party.
2. Briefly explain why and state the name of the designer & which season the outfit is from.
3. Tag 3 other bloggers once you are done and let them know by posting a comment on their blog.

Pls. note: I choose to interpret C's guidelines in a perfect world scenario i.e., one in which I have no particular practical wardrobe requirements. In fact, on the day on which I would choose to wear these items, I'd be on high-style holiday in New York!

Day Look

For shopping at Barney's and Henri Bendel, I will need to seem as if I can afford all they have to offer! So I would wear this gorgeous Dior tulip day dress. (Regrettably, I can't remember what season this is from...)

(Early) Evening Look

For evening, at some fabulous NY restaurant recommended by WendyB, I would wear this Celine (Resort 2008) dress. It's slick but tasteful. Like I could be the wife or the girlfriend:

Now to Party, I would change into something like this:

Outfit Credits (seasons unknown, sorry): Jacket - Night by Day Birger et Mikkelsen, Shoes - Top Shop, Bag - Alloy, Jeans - Abercrombie and Fitch, Erin Skinny, Top - Rick Owens Lilies Cap Sleeve

I'm a casual party-goer. I want to wander the streets and see what grabs me. One of my many fantasies concerns me walking into a house party and pretending I'm friends of a friend when I actually don't know a living soul. Idea is to see if I can fly by my wits. This is my brand of adventure. And girl's gotta be able to run, under those circumstances!

(PS - Sorry for the crappy Polyvore design. This is my first time attempting it and there's more to it than you might imagine...)


I think everyone should take a stab at this game. It's fun, fashionable and FREE!

Specifically, I have to tag my go-to fave Enc of observationmode. Spend money mentally, E.

I'd also like to see what Tavi, the sassiest, coolest Style Rookie ever (sorry if this word isn't in vogue anymore, Tavi!) to show us what she likes.

(Not so) secretly, I'd be blown away to see what Queen Michelle at Kingdom of Style would choose to wear. Sure, she's superblogsuperstar with mega street cred, but it can't hurt to tag.


  1. The wife, the girlfriend or both! I was at a party with MrB --standing with him -- and someone asked him if his wife would be coming.

  2. Fun, in the perfect world I think I would wear six inch heels--and be able to walk in them.

  3. Oooooh, I can't wait to do this one!

    Such beautiful looks.

  4. Wendy - I love that. It's a sure sign that you're too hot to be someone's wife :-)

    Clothes Horse: Whenever I look at Fashion Toast I am amazed by how that woman can wear those insane shoes and walk around. But how great does it make ones legs look??

    Riz: Thanks. I think it is really smart for the beautiful walk in the spring night air. Those walks can go on for hours!

    Enc: I can't wait to see what you come up with. I have a feeling you'll live large...

  5. That Dior dress is a wonderful shape.

    If you ever live out your gate crashing fantasy, good luck!

  6. Thanks Miss White - I love it too. It's so old time glamour. I'll be sure to post if I ever get up the nerve to party crash! K
