WIW 4/18 dinner edition

Couldn't find my suede shorts. I thought I had nude fishnets, but they were black. Did find still in the bag a pair of Jaguar patterned Marc by Marc Jacobs fancy shorts I got at the Rack eons ago. Worn with my Club Monaco tuxedo jacket, Brooks Brothers no-iron shirt and Miu Miu moto booties.
Seriously I need to do a closet sort.

    I die. You look flipping amazing, Anna. I could never in my wildest dreams put anything so fab together. You definitely don't need any help--my gosh, you look awesome!

    ETA: You can walk in those? 
  • Caro in Oz replied 5 years ago
    You look amazing even without the closet sort:)

    Can you walk in those shoes?
  • replied 5 years ago
    The shorts are excellent! I can't believe you can walk in those. Ouch.

    Just think what other treasures are lurking in your closet!
  • Sara L. replied 5 years ago
    Wow!  Great shoes!  I like heels but I'm not sure I could walk in those without killing myself.  I like the shorts and tights together.  I think the shorts are a great length and the jacket keeps the outfit from feeling too casual.
  • Mamapicklejuice replied 5 years ago
    Sleek and chic.  Love the heels.  And the gams.  And the hair, although I'm generally not sold on the center part.

    Look how gorgeous you are! Great outfit, Anna. 
  • JulieJohn replied 5 years ago
    Oooh, excellent shorts, thanks for the close-up shot. Me-yow!
  • CocoLion replied 5 years ago
    Love the shoes, you pull off all black brilliantly.  Seriously one of your best.  It's classic yet edgy and retains that Anna je-ne-sais-quoi.

    I seldom like black from head to toe outfits, but this is KILLER to the power of KILLER. You know I don't say that lightly. 

    I LOVE the baggy self patterned shorts with the strict shirt!! So chic!! And the fabrications aren't dull despite the expanse of black. Well done!! *WOW*

    Fantastic! Boy I would like to see that closet sort, more like a treasure hunt!
  • Sarah A replied 5 years ago
    WOW! No kidding... The layers on layers of black and they all work together is amazing. I dont think I have ever seen shorts looking so polished!  Can I come help with the treasure hunt too?
  • Transcona Shannon replied 5 years ago
    Classy and sassy!!! You have made all black so interesting with the different textures and shapes. You look gorgeous Anna :)

    I've never been that lucky to find anything like that hiding in the back of my closet.
  • replied 5 years ago
    I am literally laughing out loud that you asked for help about what to wear tonight.

    This is AMAZING.

  • Suz replied 5 years ago
    You are as elegant as the jaguars that grace your shorts. 
  • Ginkgo replied 5 years ago
    Looking very sharp and I love the shoes, they finish off the outfit perfectly.
  • ElleH replied 5 years ago
    You Look Fab! No really you do. I like this on you. 
  • rae replied 5 years ago
    OMG, love those shorts!! This was a fated look, I think. It's interesting yet understated, like only those who are cool enough to pay attention will fully appreciate it. A fashion secret handshake. 
  • Diana replied 5 years ago
    This whole look is so excellent, Anna, and super chic.  Jaguar shorts!  I die. 

    Don't you love it when you find forgotten treasure in your closet? 
  • annagybe replied 5 years ago
    Thanks everyone and wow, Killer to the power of Killer. I had less than 1/2 hour to put this together. First I tried a white button down, that didn't work. Then my black Equipment knock off blouse, but the pockets looked funny. Finally I settled on this shirt because I was running out of time. For the record I can walk about two blocks in these shoes, and not very fast at that.
  • sarah replied 5 years ago
    You look super fab, Anna!
  • rachylou replied 5 years ago
    Definitely killer. Classy and sleek and sophisticated.
  • Beth Ann replied 5 years ago
    Gorgeous, Anna!  Love every bit of it, and think it's a great dinner look.  I hear you on the closet sort!
  • Deborah replied 5 years ago

    I'm in "all black" heaven! I love this outfit Anna. The textures are gorgeous and I love the shorts. Slunds like your closet does need a sort out, if i was closer id love to come and help:). You have inspired me! I want winter shorter...but I don't know if this is something a 45+ should wear ?!

  • replied 5 years ago
    That looks great. I love formal shorts but I don't think I could pull them off as well as you do!
  • Kiwichik replied 5 years ago

    Wow you look great - love those booties.

  • Sveta replied 5 years ago
    This is a kind of all black outfit I can admire! It is really stellar. I like the pattern on the shorts, so much fun - I think it worked better that suede shorts would.
