Salut Lattes! A couple of weeks ago, I attended a celebratory dinner hosted by the National Football Foundation in honor of outstanding student athletes at a gorgeous country club in the I.E. This annual semi-formal affair gathers together all of the coaches and families of boys who will soon be graduating high-school and heading off to college, and so my entire family came out to support my little brother, Darryl, for accepting a full academic scholarship to U.C. Davis, a spot on their football team and a spot as Homecoming King at his high-school! As someone who’s watched him grow from a cute little boy grow into a talented and amazing young man, I can’t tell you how proud I am of my brother and what he has accomplished – and I can’t wait to cheer him on at some of his games.
As to be expected, I had to keep it fashionable and flaunt my typical fly fashion style so I paired a red silk turtleneck shirt with a puppy skin skirt from H&M. Of course it wasn’t real “puppy skin,” but when I first saw it, it immediately reminded me of Cruella De Vil from Disney’s “101 Dalmatians” movie and the spotted puppy coat she was so desperate to make. To add a contrasting pop of color, I threw in a vintage blue, suede fringe purse, accessorized in my usual gold fashion, and voila – Cruella de Vil chic! ;-)
