It turns out I have been walking the earth for two years unaware that Zara has launched a more upscale cousin called Massimo Dutti right next to its flagship store in midtown. The price points are higher than its sibling, but still very much on the reasonable side, and, based on the white blazer Tribeca Mom showed me the other day, the quality is very much there. The aesthetic is on the more professional side, less in a way that’s workaday than a way that makes you feel like you feel like you’re going to find cute stuff to wear to the office there. I love the color of this blouse, and the fact that it’s all silk and not combined with a synthetic.
It’s far from leather jacket season, but because I rarely show them to you on account of the fact that so many hover near or surpass four digits, I felt it was well worth pointing out that most of theirs ring in at closer to the $400 mark. The streak of blue is a nice touch on this otherwise quite minimal option.
An orange blazer can go a long way toward taking the boring out of an outfit.
