Vanessa Bruno: Casually Chic

Reese Witherspoon in a Vanessa Bruno dress

031707_witherspoon_200x400.jpgI’m leaving for Paris next week and I cannot wait to stock-up on Vanessa Bruno and Sonia Rykiel. Of course both designers are available in NYC and online, but nothing compares to the selection in Paris. I love Vanessa Bruno in the same way that so many people love Alexander Wang — the designs are perfect for day-to-day casual, but put together looks. How adorable does Reese Witherspoon look? And all she had to do was add a long necklace for a little pop and pair her outfit with flats, a handbag and voila!

Unfortunately while I love Vanessa Bruno clothing, I’m not a fan of the line’s handbags and shoes — odd especially since most people know Bruno as a handbag designer. I just never felt that her casual, playful aesthetic translated well into her accessories. That said, I’m more than content with just picking-up some of her clothing pieces.

Check-out some of my great find after the jump!

    I agree, she’s a good role model for the other girls.

    I totally fell in love with Vanessa Bruno when I was in France. I even liked her bags (sorry!). The one I really liked was called the Lune or something? Anyway, she’s such a fab designer~~~ <3 Unfortunately my salary did not cover frills like that. France is expensive. :/
