Tulle Me More

$10

The final days of summer…Labor Day Weekend! A time filled with friends, clam bakes, and the last chance to wear your favorite summer ensemble!

Now the saying goes that you “cannot wear white after Labor Day”, but what about all of the winter-white coats that everyone wants to wear in December? I suppose the saying just means don’t wear white pants with a white caftan in the middle of November.

Nevertheless, I went Newport, RI for the weekend with my favorite white summer piece in tow…a white Vivienne Westwood shirt with embellished tulle sleeves!

I paired this beauty with some pink, grey, and white tie dye jeans, gold gladiator sandals, a white and gold star burst bracelet, and a gold wicker clutch!

Check out these puffy, delicious tulle sleeves!

Look at some of Red Valentino’s embellished t-shirts! So similar to my Vivienne one!

I even got to show off my Vivienne Westwood gem to one of the Real Housewives of NYC, Ramona Singer. She even complemented my outfit calling it “chic.”


Went home with a signed bottle of her signature pinot grigio too!
