NYFW Day 1 – What I Wore Today

My friends at theOutnet.com have kindly loaned me a few select pieces to jazz up my New York Fashion Week wardrobe.

Today I carried gorgeous burgandy Alexander Wang ‘Anita’ structured leather bag.

The bag is part their amazing Alexander Wang 60% Off sale which started this week.

The rest of my look includes a matching pair of Zara pants, a Zara grey top with copper stitching – which doesn’t show up in this picture – and a pair of Zara mustard pumps.

      i love them too! i have a tiny question about their quality. i had few pairs from Zara and they were so poorly that they fell apart after few outings! i’m curious if anything improved since then :D

      • Fashion Critic September 9, 2011 at 12:44 #

        I’m not sure when you last purchased shoes from them, but I find the quality very high.
