Betty Draper

These pants, much like the J Brand velvet jeans, are a recent acquisition from my shopping trip to Lyla. That trip was quite successful to say the least. I love these RED Valentino pants, they’re so ladylike and make me think of Betty Draper post divorce when she starts to ditch the daily dresses and crinolines. One of my favorite touches that many pieces from RED Valentino seem to have is the use of bows. Me, love bows? Shocking I know. Paired with this dainty Tahari blouse and red velvet stilettos, all I’m missing is the chip on my shoulder and a dirty martini. After seeing these photos, I feel like I should have gone for a stronger red lip to really finnish the look off. Speaking off, I’m on the hunt for a new red lipstick. I’m thinking something really bold, any suggestions darlings?

Top: Elie Tahari

Pants: RED Valentino

Shoes: Miss me!
