Drama in the Details = Anna Dello Russo for H&M

Drama is all in the details. A simple little black dress can be turned up a notch with a contrasting peter pan collar, or bejewelled epaulettes. Accessories are instrumental in adding interest, and a dose of your own personality to an outfit. Even with a plain suit, a jacket with gold buttons looks infinitely more luxe than your standard tortoiseshell fasteners. I went for the dramatic side with this look, featuring accessories from the Anna Dello Russo for H&M collection.

I am wearing a vintage jersey dress with a feathered collar, Vince Camuto nude rhinestone shoes (similar found here), an alligator bracelet from Anna Dello Russo for H&M, and of course, the turquoise luggage set from the Anna Dello Russo collection for H&M.

I snapped these photos beside the Toronto Centre for the Arts, which has a garden featuring a dramatic mask. I wanted to echo the dramatic look I was wearing through the background to the shoot. Dramatically, it started to pour right as we started taking pictures… my feathers were drenched, but unfettered… my hair? Not so much.

Accessories are often my favourite part of my outfit, and this alligator bracelet is one of my new favourite pieces in my collection!

What’s more dramatic than an oversized fur coat? Nothing. I love fall because it is the perfect season to express yourself in outerwear; shoes, boots, coats, scarves… without having to worry about functionality to stay warm (yet!)
