Outfit Of The Day for October 4, 2011. A Minimalist Look

October 4, 2011 • Fashion Blog, Outfit Of The Day, Yahoo

All of the talk of a 90’s influence from designers at New York Fashion Week made me want to revisit the minimalist looks from that era. I was very concerned about what I am wearing today,  since I’m meeting George Kotsiopoulos, Co-Host of E! Fashion Police at Swarovski at The Shops at North Bridge in Chicago. He will be there from 6-8 pm this evening! So I guess I thought I can slide by, wearing all black. I was also concerned about the proportions of my outfit (in front of a stylist!) so I added my homemade silver hardware chain belt,  so my pants would not look too long. I am rather short and cropped does not always stay cropped on me (I remember “close talking” Stacy London one time at Fashion Week a few years ago, because I did not want her to check out my hemline!) Maybe I’m just being paranoid, but I did not want that to happen again. Hopefully George will appreciate my look!
