The Leather Look at Villa Blanca

If you’re familiar with Lisa Vanderpump’s interior design taste from her restaurants Villa Blanca, SUR, and Pump, you know that it is extravagant and gorgeous in all the right ways. Villa Blanca’s luxe, sophisticated and intricately designed interior sets the tone for those who dine at the restaurant to dress as such.

While I thought about donning an all-white ensemble to match the décor, I decided to go with a classic outfit of mine that I find can be dressed up or down. My Blank NYC leather jacket, army green asymmetrical dress, and chunky leather heels was totally appropriate because it was dressy, yet not overdone. This outfit is so simple to recreate with really any dress or skirt combo.

If you’re going to incorporate Vanderpump into your look, I recommend getting a bit more dolled up than you usually would. While Villa Blanca has become a popular Beverly Hills neighborhood restaurant, keep in mind that you’re just around the corner from Rodeo Drive. As mentioned in my VB brunch post, it is a celebrity hotspot (especially for the Housewives of Beverly Hills) and Lisa is said to come in quite frequently. At Villa Blanca, it’s about dressing to impress. And if you happen to come in for brunch and LVP just so happens to be there, I’m sure you’re going to want to look as fabulous as possible in your photo that you will ask to be in with her. ;)
