I recently had the opportunity to attend the Washington, DC launch of Nic + Zoe, an 8 year old Boston-based women's clothing line whose romantic yet powerful pieces are now available at Lord & Taylor. I had my eye on this hand woven color mix lace jacket and vintage inspired filigree skirt. Zoe, the line's namesake, is more than just a muse, she also serves as Merchandiser for the brand and she travelled down to DC for the L&T event.
Zoe's casual styling of this lace coat was spot on, teaching us DC gals a valuable lesson...those fancy "gala garments" shoved in the back of our closets for a "special event" should be integrated into our everyday wardrobe.
I could see myself having brunch in this denim-on-denim look and also wearing this same fabulous coat to Easter Sunday service at the National Cathedral or to the White House Easter Egg Roll. Zoe is a girl after my own heart!
As I always say...live your ordinary life, but do it in extraordinary clothing!
