Posing at the entrance of the YWCA’s newly opened 5th Avenue Boutique, our model Thelmy is dressed in some fabulous fall 2012 trends. She wears a slim trouser and simple jacket creating a personalized pant suit (a tailored trend Prada, Bottega Veneta,and Chanel showcase in their fall collections). The look is softened with a ladylike touch of lace–taking some hints from Rodarte and Marchesa on this bit of feminine flair. Her 1″ heels are vintage yet stylishly current, and her navy purse is satisfactorily structured (a stiffness Prada and Fendi find fashionably forward).
