Turquoise, White and Gold... any variation is gorgeous. Wouldn't you just love to have cocktails with friends here, followed by an elegant dinner in the perfect outfit.

Kelly Wearstler designed Avalon Hotel
sequined dress $1,920, net-a-porter; clutch, $425, Tiffany and Co.; bracelet, $345, Ben-Amun; earrings $100, Kenneth Jay Lane at Saks; sandals, $7.99, amiclubwear

Breakfast at Tiffany's

Then retire to your suite to sleep 'til noon, thanks to this eye mask and tassle earplugs. If only the rest of my family understood that this is the way I was born to live.

This color combo has been ubiquitous throughout history, as early and the Egyptian and Greeks. It was hugely popular in the 50's and 60's, when Breakfast at Tiffany's was made. Remember the scene where Patricia Neal's scandalous character phones her lover to say she won't be able to meet him as her husband mixes drinks in the foreground. As a young girl I got that this was sort of wrong, but I sure gave her points for her glamorous living room! Check out the white and gold painted credenza with greek key and grecian figures.

Breakfast at Tiffany's

 It's all the same palette as the Avalon bar and this outfit, which would also make for a fun night.
dress $925, DVF; clutch Lara Bohinc; sandals $925, farfetch; cuff, $249, CalleenCordero; earrings $295, Alexis Bittar

In this more laid back ensemble, you could knock back a few blue martinis, slouch a little, even chow down a steak dinner (gotta love a roomy, drapey knit). I'd take either outfit, either room, anytime.

  1. Those outfits are totally fabulous! I especially love the bracelet with outfit #1.

  2. If I remember correctly, Marie Antoinette's colors were this shade of blue and beautiful! I love the outfit you put together...if only, if only!

    I saw your comment on Sophie-Nicole's blog, Inspiration Bazaar! If you want to join in on the art/craft swap, email me at, and I can give you the details, it would be great to have you join in!

  3. Alexandra .... these outfits are stunning and the perfect combination of turqoise blue, gold and white. Count me in for blue martinis at the Avalon Bar and I think the second outfit would be perfect! I love the interior design of the bar... very elegant! I think they are very Marie Antoinette colours. Have a lovely day and beautiful post!

  4. Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog. I think your blog is lovely is a nice mix of fashion however mixed with interior design, which makes it a lovely combination. You've got some great pictures! Im glad your interesting in the art swap, if you email kate she will give you all the details, hope you will participate. Yeah i do look at alot of fashion blogs, though i'm very interested in art myself and do alot of it, so i have been looking at your blog list for art related ones! I love this post, i love turquoise and i currently i want to collect loads of turquoise and gold rings! haha. I loved audreys mask from the moment i saw it in the film, and what an invention those earings are! :)

  5. Oh how I love pops of tourquise! The clutch and the chairs are my favorite!!

  6. I designed my wedding dress in this color palette. I know it may read tacky, but we (my husband and I) were married in Vegas and I wanted an appropriate "Desert" dress.

    Inspired by the sky and sand, it was perfect...
