[ Vena Cava dress, Nanette Lepore cardigan, vintage Gucci purse, Sergio Rossi sandals, custom 3D Sculpteo necklace, By Boe 'Hang Tight' ear cuff ]

Photos by Steve Pyne

Late spring/summer nights call for slinky silk dresses and slouchy cardigans. I've had this dress ever since I discovered Vena Cava through Gossip Girl and it's just such a beautifully simple piece. Paired with my Nanette Lepore cardigan that I've been insisting goes with absolutely everything... A perfect combo for drinks at the Ace Hotel DTLA (cocktail suggestion: Roses in Winter. Not too sweet & comes with edible flower so why not). A nice little surprise to the outfit came in the form of my elven ear cuff by By Boe. I'm always trying to let my inner elf maiden out. West Coast style.
