Sunday Styles

Sunday, October 11, 2009

Dim sum with friends,
Sweets at a Chinatown bakery and
A stroll in the park with the Mr...
Sunday feels so sweet today.























What I wore: ASOS harem pants, embroidered top by Tess Giberson (circa 2003?), slouchy trench by Eksempel (purchased in Belgium years ago), 80%20 satin purple wedges, Balenciaga bag and Chanel sunnies.

P.S. Isn't the Mr. getting really good with his camera work? I love my Canon Rebel!

I love that trench - and it definitely rings of Euro design - knew it!

Why all black? Nothing wrong with black(in fact it's my favorite color), but you look like your going to a funeral or something. On the other hand..if you were going to some formal or even casual event, I can bet you that you would be the best dressed! I love love love the trench coat! Your sunglasses look so good on you! Whenever I saw those circle type glasses I would be like "eww, no one could pull them off!" You have without a doubt proved me wrong and I love it! I love it that you proved me wrong because now I have a different view on these sunglasses! Your purple flats are amazing!

Angela said...

I love a nice black trench coat! You look amazing.

Kb said...

Love that coat, you were so lucky to find it all those years ago; it doesn't date.

Great photo work and having gorgeous model helps too! BTW awesome reflection of the photographer and the stairs that show up as converging lines in your sunglasses. P.S. A longer lens (longer than 55mm) would be ideal for full body portraiture work as it compresses the field of view and minimizes the big-head-small-body problem, with the added bonus of obliterating distracting background. Many fashion photographers opt for a 85mm prime, 24-70mm zoom, or even a 70-200mm zoom focal length. 50mm and 55mm are not long enough to avoid distortions.

The trench is awesome! I've been looking for something like that for years. I just haven't found the perfect one yet.

Midtown Girl said...

ps - an award is waiting for you darling :-)

Sher said...

Midtown Girl: Oh I'm working on getting him to be totally pro with the pics. He's sick of taking my direction right now. LOL.

Manju: I am now kicking myself for not buying myself a stuffed panda with bamboo. How cute are they??

theTrendyDwarf: Thanks for your comment, my dear! I didn't even think about the color of my rather drab ensemble until after I left the house and then it was too late-- I was in all black! The harem pants are actually more like sweatpants to me. So comfy!

kb: Thanks! I have been looking for a great trench, and I had forgotten about this one. I guess I'm "shopping" my own closet right now ;)

KevinKevin: Thanks for the tips. I am in need of lots of help with my lenses!

MME: I agree. A classic trench is timeless. Hope you find one you like!

Em said...

That whole outfit is so cool! Been thinking about getting some harem pants for a while but didn't know how to wear them without looking like mc hammer. They look really glam on you though so I'm feeling a bit inspired.

Kristin said...

I really dig the trench! And your foodie adventures sound quite delish : )

Claire said...

Love that coat, it looks fabulous!

Betsey J said...

jealous of the sunglasses, but you've convinced me to get a pair just like em.
love the all black look with the pop of color by adding the purple shoes!

Chessa! said...

wasn't yesterday the most fabulous fall day? you look amazing, as usual!

.:*aMbAr*:. said...

WOW! You look stunning!!! I love your outfit, and that little pop of color that your shoes bring to it, perfect!!!

Kisses!!

WendyB said...

I love those shades. Yesterday was so nice. I went for a long walk in the park (not Central Park, another park!) which is a once a year thing for me, if that.

Jaime said...

sounds like a very lovely way to spend your Sunday :) love your sunglasses, reminds me of the Chanel ones that Mary Kate wears without the words Chanel and Paris around the frames. I love your jacket as well and how the hem tapes to the back, very chic!
