Elements of Irma’s Outfit

1. Black Slip-Ons & Lace Bottom Maxi


Irma’s comfy yet classic black slip-ons contrast with her elegant maxi dress, giving the whole outfit a cool, laid-back touch. The faux reptilian leather makes this pair of slip-ons stand out in a unique way.

This maxi dress is a true show-stopper. The black lace bottom gives the overall look a feminine, dreamy touch. 

3. Minimalistic Accessories


This beautifully put-together outfit does not require any major accessorizing. A simple pendant necklace, which Irma found at a little shop in London, really rounds out her look. The pristine whiteness of the pendent ties in the white of her shoe soles. Fun fact: The pendant reads a famous quote from the movie “The Notebook!”
