How to Wear It

A RED Valentino Skirt

Monica is a full-time mother of two gorgeous kids and the creative mind behind Patak Accessories, her jewelry line and artistic refuge from the day routine. Born in Caracas, Monica is passionate about many things – history, politics, literature and economics, and of course, fashion. Monica worked for a time for Marina Rinaldi, one of the lines produced by Max Mara, managing the wholesale distribution in Latin America and the Caribbean. That explains a lot about her classic, conservative and always chic personal style, which includes perpetual impeccable make up all the time (even on a tennis court).

Her closet features a impressive collection of designer staple pieces mixed with random pieces from common chains such as Zara and The Gap. The “ghost in her closet” is a cotton piquet skirt from RED Valentino. The skirt is a knee-length white skirt with a contrasting navy blue silk ribbon, side pockets, and is only pleated on the front right side. Honestly, it was just a “writer’s block” type of ghost – she had looked at it too long, and needed some fresh perspective. since it was very easy helping her re-styling it with her own treasure chest of a closet.

Follow the white on white trend with a white sleeveless ruffled georgette top by Oscar de la Renta, a clutter of necklaces (worn as though they were a scarf) and a pair of sparkly silver flats with bow  by Zara.

Wear a knit navy double-breasted jacket over a tank or top (this one's a Union Jack printed tank by Forever 21) with white moccasins by Tom's.

A Cocktail Party

Monica's hand-printed blouse by Ana G. goes perfectly with the Valentino skirt. Add some contrasting colors with this interesting silk printed clutch, and finish the ensemble with a pair of pointy lace up stilettos by Alberta Ferretti.
