I am all about coordinating with a certain vibe of the brunch spots I go to. I always get asked about what to wear to certain places, which totally makes sense because of the obvious: you can’t underdress to brunch somewhere that’s a bit more elevated.
When I recently brunched at Norah in West Hollywood, I knew I wanted to really embody the ambiance and the feel of the space in terms of the neutral colors. PS - I always tell people before picking your outfit for brunch (or really anywhere else), look it up on Instagram. See the way other people are dressed that go there just to get a sense of whether it’s dressy or casual. Then head to the restaurant’s IG to get a feel for the atmosphere.
Back to Norah: I knew that with the golds, marbles, blacks and neutrals of the space, I wanted to go for a look that would compliment those tones visually - so I obviously went with blush (or millennial pink, whatever you wanna call it).
I found and fell in love with this AMAZE Michael Costello x Revolve dress and thought it was the most perfect thing. Seriously, I have never gotten more compliments and questions on a brunch look than this one! It’s the perfect shade of blush/nude with intricate floral lace detail and the cold shoulders really made this dress appropriate for a day time brunching affair.
Also - side note! My bag was a stunning pink leather Tory Burch that I actually got from Bag Borrow or Steal. I had never done anything like that before but I really wanted to find a bag that would perfectly match this dress. I am such a fan now of this site and would totally rent a bag again.
Onto the next brunch!!!
