As a blogger, there’s something so special about having the chance to partner with brands you’ve shopped and admired for years. Case in point: THE OUTNET. If you aren’t already familiar, THE OUTNET is the sister site to NET-A-PORTER, and they have long been my number one source for hard-to-find designer apparel and accessories. Originally, the site was created to allow the NET-A-PORTER shopper the chance to purchase previous season’s inventory. Today, THE OUTNET actually sources the majority of its goods directly from the designers themselves!

What I love most about THE OUTNET is the fact you can find incredibly rare and special pieces from previous seasons. Plus, I often direct my friends and readers to their site when I’m asked about a look I wore on the blog in years past. For example, the Carolina Herrera dress I wore to the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic? Well, they have it in navy! The lavender pleated Tibi dress I wore in Paris? Find the top version of it here! Plus, I’ve long had a weakness for Roksanda statement sleeve dresses (as seen here, here, and here), so this coral version is definitely on my list. Best of all, all of these hard-to-find pieces are up to 70% off the original price.

So, when THE OUTNET reached out to see if I was interested in a collaboration, it was an immediate, “yes!” Shortly thereafter, this jaw-dropping Carolina Herrera tulle gown and Olympia Le-Tan book clutch arrived in the mail. To say they were fun to style and photograph would be an understatement! The clutch is actually one of seven designs that are exclusive to THE OUTNET, and the site often creates similar unique partnerships with other designers like Victoria Beckham, Oscar de la Renta, and Emelia Wickstead.
