Planning upcoming outfits to wear during Paris Couture Week


Ok, so I really should be wrapping up my packing, as I leave in a couple of days.  As invites have started rolling in, I realised that it will be more than the 1-2 shows that I will be attending at Paris' Couture Week, so started panicking as that means I need more 'dressy' outfits.  I have been spamming my Instagram feed with outfits I'm thinking of wearing, and for my own reference, thought I'd post them here, so I have them on the one page.  There is another dress I had long planned to bring which is at the tailor (along with a few other pieces I'm hoping to pack - talk about last minute! I'm picking them up the day before I take off!).  I had only planned on bringing one pair of dressy shoes, but that has proved a challenge, so I'm trying to pack shoes that should hopefully suit a variety of outfits and that aren't too bulky:

T-shirt: Bonds, Dress: Chloe (by Phoebe Philo), Clutch: Dries Van Noten, Sandals: Dries Van Noten
Dress: Malaysian hand-painted batik 'maxi' dress, Shoes: Margiela for H&M plexi booties, bag: Dries Van Noten - when I bought this dress, I thought it was so Dries Van Noten, and something I could picture Cate Blanchett wearing (not sure why). Am also thinking these may suit some minimal flat DVN sandals I have (and are pretty light, if I'm to add it to my growing shoe list)...
Dress: David Szeto (unfortunately you can barely see what it's meant to look like), Clutch and sandals: Dries Van Noten
Dress: 3.1 Phillip Lim x Koi Suwannagate, Clutch: Dries Van Noten, Shoes: Margiela for H&M plexi booties
as before, but bag: Chanel reissue, with this outfit I'd prefer black sandals, but I can't seem to find mine! Don't know where they are since I moved...
And again.

I thought perhaps to avoid bringing/smooshing my Chanel bag I'd bring the Dries Van Noten clutches which are more compact and less 'delicate' to pack, but I'm not sure yet...

  1. I like the 2nd (can you wear it with the dries sandals?), 3rd, 4th, and the 6th. That roses dress is beautiful

    1. That's definitely an option :)

      I was just thinking if I can get away with not bringing the booties after all (which previously were going to be the only shoes I was going to wear). I think I may also see an alternative to the striped top to wear with the Chloe dress. I felt it looked too dressy on its own (oh, and a bit too revealing for my current body), so was trying to dress it down...

    1. Thanks Fashion Ice - my heels hardly see the light of day nowadays (except for those nude DVN sandals, which are my trusty comfy wear-with-almost-anything shoes).

  4. LOVE the Chanel reissue.

    Is it too late to get my hands on the Margiela for H&M plexi booties? I need to have them in my life.

    1. Maybe try Ebay? They might still have some...I found them TTS, but my sister and a lot of people found they ran small, if that helps...

      They're one of my most versatile high-heel shoe purchases of late...
