Channeling Giovanna Battaglia

I've made myself clear that I love Giovanna's style.  So this morning I thought I'd try my hand at re-creating one of her looks.

I know.  My version brought me out of color and back to black yet again but the play on textures makes it fun and interesting.

Zara dress, St John jacket, Spanx tights, Tiziana handbag

I grabbed this Zara dress that I've had for years.  It's not just any old little black dress because it has this lovely pleating at the skirt.  I topped the dress with my old faithful St. John jacket (you've seen it before here).
Spanx lace tights, Me Too booties

Then I threw on these Spanx lace tights and they are fantastic.  I love fun tights but the Spanx ones are the best.  I wore some fun Kate Spade tights recently (seen in the same post you saw the jacket above) and while I beyond adore just about anything from Kate Spade, their tights just don't measure up for me.  The day I wore them I found myself constantly tugging at them.  But the Spanx, oh they suck and tuck in all the right places (and I need that!). 

You may want to try your hand at this too. Here are some similar items.

I have the white boucle Moschino jacket above on my wish list for Santa and it's way pricey.  But the BCBG version above is much more reasonable ($168). By the way, in the short time since I bought the Me Too booties, I've worn them almost every day.  Not only do I love the way they look, but they are quite comfortable even with all the trotting around town I do on my feet.
