The Trophy Wife

The trophy wife doesn’t have it easy. She is constantly under the scrutiny of not only her husband but also those around her who envy her or are critical of her.

The Trophy Wife

When a woman is under that kind of pressure it makes perfect sense that she must go shopping. And when doing so, she must make sure she shows off the gifts her fine husband has given her (so as not to hurt his feelings, of course). Take for example, this fine fur bolero and silk slacks and leather boots from MariaElena Barbosa, which is this season’s latest for MEB. The outfit has been deconstructed a bit (wearing the bra alone as it was included with the outfit will definitely NOT meet with the approval of the husband) so a silky tank from Janie Marlowe has been tucked in underneath.

A pashmina around the waist from Alla Ruff (purchased on their last trip to Milan) ties the look together while a Monicuzza Babenco designer handbag that she has recolored (from black as offered to brown—bless Monicuzza for making her handbag modifiable) is the punctuation on the outfit. She loves the huge diamond studs from Dnel DaSilva her husband gave her to make up for being late for dinner one night. (She has a very fine pout and uses it when it’s needed.) And do not forget the statement ring, this time replacing her wedding ring, which is out right now being reset with yet a larger diamond.

Her skin is, of course, young and flawless. That’s why he married her. (Well that and her other young and toned physical features.) Tuli Asturias provides her youth and her professional makeup. Her casual but classy blonde-dyed updo is courtesy of Elikapeka Tiramisu, a new look at Elika’s salon. (And let me break out of the narrative to suggest that Elika’s Essentials Pack is the ONLY way to go when buying her hair. For a mere 250L, you get what is, ostensibly, a fat pack of colors which will be versatile for many looks.)

One thought on “The Trophy Wife

  1. oh, i guess i gotta go and visit MEB, very cute stuff. and again a styling out of the ordinary. that makes your blog really special, harper. i am no gown girl and so often find outfits or an accessory on your blog that i like and/or did not know. beautiful work. the hope skin suits you really well, you have a real tuli face, i find. and don´t we all remember elika tiramisu so well :))

    happy tuesday!
