YSL mood

For my shoes' first outing, I dressed in a YSL mood. Saint Laurent was no stranger to velvet and chinois themes in his work.
Banana Republic blue velvet chinois jacket, Kenneth Cole NY shirt dress (tucked up) and bag, Salt Works jeans, YSL shoes
A purple Guet Apens would go so well with this.
