Michaela was wearing a nice white blouse, fitted red trousers - of her own collection - and she added a delicate black evening jacket. 

I was wearing a white blouse with a black pencil skirt. But what did I added? A fabulous black and white hand-made embroidery cape from Frankova's collection. 

These two garments gave the work outfit a completely turn around to a perfect evening dinner.

This look, however, needs beautiful black and white Yull shoes and a medium size black  Calvin Klein bag
