Lusting :: watercolor + leather

1. Rick Owens jacket | 2. Irene Neuwirth earrings  | 3. Lela Rose dress | 4. Maison Martin Margiela ring | 5. Enameled cuff via Bauble Bar  | 6. Evil eye bracelet via Bauble Bar | 7. Braided bracelet via Bauble Bar | 8. Jason Wu clutch | 9. Givenchy heels

After my post about Frank Gehry's watercolor bangles, I just couldn't stop obsessing over my love of beautifully abstract colors splashed onto a crisp white palate. I kept dreaming of that perfect white sheath dress with color splattered across it and couldn't find it anywhere until I happened up on this perfect Lela Rose dress from her Spring 2012 collection. White and watercolor are a brilliant combination for spring and summer, but the gray days of winter leave me itching for color in anything and everything. I've toughened up this dress with a leather jacket by Rick Owens and I just love the soft, draped shape of the jacket against the structure of the dress. The heels also add a harder edge to an outfit that could easily end up very prim and feminine. I coordinated both the Jason Wu clutch and Irene Neuwirth earrings in rose to highlight the pink in the dress since lavender is the first color that catches your attention in the dress. I topped off the look with an arm party of bracelets in an azure color scheme to also bring out the subtle blue hue in the dress as well. Now, if only all of these pieces could exist in my real closet as well.
