What I Wore: Car Show Colors

I attended the preview party for the New York International Auto Show last night and a cocktail event at the Bulgari store on Fifth Avenue.  Sadly, I don't own any Bulgari (how can that be???), but I felt like I had to break out the "good stuff" to attend a party there!

I wore a medium blue dress with a multicolored tweed jacket over it.  The colors in the jacket were light pastel so I chose accessories in shades of blue, pink and green.

Shoes:  Manolo Blahnik
Bag:  unknown
Ring:  Coach
Bracelet:  Seaman Schepps
Earrings:  Verdura
Necklace:  Ross Simons cross
Pearls:  unknown

I was so glad I was wearing something from Verdura because I ran into the chairman of Verdura! Truth be told about 85% of the time I get dressed up I wear Verdura, so the odds were in my favor.  I love this bag.  I got it at a store in my general neighborhood that sells a lot of bags.  The label in the bag just says "Genuine Leather" and I can not recall the name of the store.  The color blue is so pretty and I always get a lot of compliments.  I also love the blue of these old Manolos.  Blue is one of my favorite colors, but living in NYC I tend to wear a lot more black.

Since it was Holy Thursday I thought wearing this cross would be perfect, plus it picked up the colors in my jacket.  Here's a close up of the jewelry:

All the pretty pastels worked together, because the ring had all the colors in it.

In addition to the jacket, the Coach ring also had a lot of pastel colors in it.  This ring is pretty cool.  It was part of the limited edition Tony Duquette collection at Coach a few years ago.  There are flowers all over it and in the center of each flower is a different crystal gemstone.  I had never worn it before, but Spring is the perfect time.
