Here in Los Angeles, we've been struck by a heat wave so intense that we're practically melting. You know what 100° heat can do to girl's coiffure, let alone her ensemble. So, when we gave sassy stylist and Decadestwo sales lady, Mayasha Long, the daunting task of coming up with an outfit that could both beat the heat and transition from day to night, she did not disappoint. "This black blouson Vanessa Bruno dress is prefect for keeping cool," said Long. "It's light and breezy and you get the added bonus of a little military action with large cargo pockets at the hip." A gladiator flat is a stylish option when the temperature hits the high notes and Long recommended a pair of tan leather Celine sandals in keeping with fall's neutral color palette. She topped the look off with a Louis Vuitton Epi leather Noe bag. "It's the optimal tote for day," noted Long."You can fit notebooks and day planners as well as your keys, wallet and makeup bag." she said. "However, it's also the perfect bag for night. This is, after all, the tote Louis Vuitton created to carry 5 magnums of champagne." For further information or to purchase, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
