Tinker, Tailor…

A number of years ago I bought a The Row Marina shift dress and wore it only once—it was too short.  After relegating the shift to the back of my closet for a few seasons, I pulled it out and shortened it into a tunic (it’s almost identical to the Proenza Schouler top above). Now, I wear it all the time over these J. Brand white jeans. I wore this look yesterday to a lunch at The Mercer Kitchen to pitch a TV show.

  • I’d be happy to wear the row dress as a tunic air the proenza schouler top and those Gucci slides anytime!

  • wondering – what are your thoughts on white J Brand 811’s vs Frame Le Skinny de Jeanne’s?

  • J Brand’s denim is thicker, which I prefer when white. I like my jeans (in any color) to be trim and close-fitting, otherwise they look like ‘Mom’ jeans to me.

  • Preston, love your choice to create the tunic out of a too short dress – very smart!

    I’m a long-time fan of slides – like the Gucci you show here – for these in-between season days. How do you feel about slides in patent? Too much? I (and good friends) have been back and forth on patent in general recently – I am tempted to cut the cord, but am curious about your thoughts.

  • I love my Valentino Tangos in patent, not sure how I’d feel about patent slides. The calf on the Gucci pair is beautiful.

  • My two cents about patent slides: I had a pair and gave them away as the leather didn’t have enough “give” and so they were murder on the top of my toes. I prefer a softer leather or suede in a slide.

  • Love the outfit, the PS top is great. Good luck with whatever you’re pitching…..they’d be lucky to have you.
