What I’m Wearing: Party Dress With Flats Because Obviously (Plus a Pop of Radiant Orchid)

I’m not over collars yet. In fact, I think they’re hotter than ever. Whether it’s your favorite blouse buttoned all the way up, or a fabulous contrast like this Maje dress($415) I found a few weeks ago, I’m crazy for collars.

So I popped on my favorite black d’Orsay flats (these are Chinese Laundry, but there are similar d’Orsay flats here) becasue, well, obviously!! And it turned out so cute!

I added the essential statement maker in the form of a violet (or maybe I should call it Radiant Orchid?) lipstick from Bodyography (color: Lip Sink, $19).  All photos by Jorge Aguilar.
