a monthly dose of style: pink and wedges

by frédérik

In an effort to add even more variety to the kind of posts we offer here at The Fashionoclast, I'm introducing a new feature consisting of a monthly dose of YOUR style to serve as inspiration for the rest of us. I want to know what you're wearing, what you'd like to wear, what works for you, what doesn't. Tell us about your style. 

Starting things off is a familiar face who contributed to this blog before surrendering to the demands of a busy schedule. (Apparently, actors won't clothe themselves. That's where Aqua, costume designer extraordinaire, comes in. Costumes? Done!) As it happens, we work together in the same office (gotta have day jobs, eh). While she always rocks her style,on one particularly day she took a daring and sassy walk on the pink side...

Aqua is wearing...

Dress: H&M
Belt: Mel B. Boutique
Shoes: NYLA
Sunnies: Marc Jacobs
Earrings: Barney's Outlet

Says Aqua: "I woke up feeling rested and peppy so I thought it would be a great time to wear my cheerful new dress –plus its really light weight and its been so hot out! The dress is from H&M, which I typically avoid because my torso is too long for their clothes but the dress has some added panels at the waist which seemed to fit my shape well.  Its hot pink and with brights so in at the moment, it can be suitable for a summer day with a colored belt or for night time with the addition of the right accessories. Though it’s a summer day, rather than choose my little turquoise snakeskin belt which looks great contrasted on the dress, I chose brown because I didn’t feel like wearing my suede platform heels that match the turquoise!  And alas, I only had one pair on heels neutral enough to go with a brown belt and hot-pink dress, the wedges!  I love them for their graceful angles and shiney gold rings.  To me, they reference the lux equestrian world, not the gladiator sandal like you might think at first.  Also because they’re so unusual, I’ve barely worn them and they have lasted years! Both the earrings and the sunglasses were purchased for my by my husband when he was still my fiancé.  The earrings are gold and white pearls – classic with a twist! They’re keepers!" 

And what about you? Send me pictures and a brief paragraph with your thoughts on fashion to:
