Sep 3, 2019

If you watch my stories then you saw I went to a fashion show and saw the Lafayette148 Collection.  I went with a friend of mine and at first she said….she thought that their clothes were matronly to her.

But…..after the show she was shocked at how the stylist put things together….yes they were classic styles but she put a fresh spin on them.  Then we started talking about that movie The Thomas Crown Affair….because she had watched it recently and in actuality the fashion show reminded her of Rene Russo’s style in the movie.

In fact there are numerous Pinterest boards dedicated to her outfits!

I mentioned to my friend that it reminded me of a “capsule collection” where you have a few different pieces and they can all be mixed and matched.

I decided to put a few outfits together that could maybe fit that bill…..couldn’t we all save $$$ if we followed that reasoning?  Myself included!

The first one I used pretty much all black but adding a camel jacket.

necklace, purse, jacket, top, leggings, shoes

Here is an all black outfit similar to one she wore in the movie!

Below I paired some of the items with jeans for a more casual look.  In the movie she had on camel pants and a jacket….but seriously I could not find a camel suit!

I saw a skirt similar on the Layfette148 website but it wasn’t in the fashion show.   I found the one below which was similar at BP.

Here is an image of the Layfette148 outfit!

Here is how to take a LBD and make it more casual…..but still look “hot” 🙂

And last…..dress up the leggings with some pearls….

I’ve got one more day in Boulder so hopefully I will have some pictures to share with you on Friday!

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend….
