(L'Wren Scott matador jacket, Nanette Lepore cardigan, Elizabeth & James pants, Guess boots)
I don't get many chances to wear my beloved L'Wren Scott matador jacket. But I paid so much for it that now I figure I may as well wear it whenever the mood strikes. No matter how many pictures I take, it's nearly impossible to capture the true beauty of this piece--its smooth thick fabric, its detailed carved buttons, its precise cut and fit. And I just love how it makes me feel when I put it on, all dramatic and mysterious.
I once recall trying to explain to a friend my passion for beautiful clothes, but she only shook her head in disbelief. That's when I dragged her to my closet, took out the L'Wren Scott, and made her feel the lovely fabric. I can still see the expression on her face as she stroked the heavy silk and took in the mandarin collar and pleated tailcoat. Ah-ha! I think she got it.
