It’s All About These Rockin’ Accessories — Just Ask “Grey’s Anatomy” Star Leven Rambin
Shocking admission: I’ve never watched a single episode of Grey’s Anatomy. Okay, close that mouth before you swallow a fly. Truth is I’ve never been fond of medical dramas (not even ER or Chicago Hope) — probably because, as a sickly little thing, I’ve spent entirely too much time in hospital rooms, and I just can’t imagine me ever feeling comfortable in that space (even if it’s just in a fantasy world). Dr. McDreamy or not, I’ll pass. But I do realize I’m in a small minority here and that most folks follow Grey’s Anatomy with the vehemence I reserve for LOST.
If you’re a diligent celeb watcher and GA fan, then, you probably keep tab of what the show’s cast members wear when they’re out and about at different events. Take, for example, actress Leven Rambin, who was recently photographed at the grand opening of Hollywood’s La Vida Restaurant, an event that benefited the American Red Cross’s Haiti Relief efforts. For the event, Rambin wore a form-fitting Thatcher by Alisse Thatcher minidress in a scarlet red hue, a simple, shapewear-based number that accentuated all her assets and concealed any problem areas. To jazz up the simple dress, she brought out some ultra cool accessories: mainly, the Michelle Roy Leaf Bib Necklace (pictured at top) and Modern Vintage’s “Georgie” platform sandals in a tan leather color.
I’m completely smitten with both of these accessories, which can add some serious funk to almost any ensemble. The Boho-flavored Michelle Roy necklace features seven gold-plated brass leaf shapes arranged in a bib-like fashion, with clear crystals lining the edges and stems of each leaf. You can opt to buy the necklace with a brass chain or, if you want to alter the height at which you wear the piece, you can purchase the necklace with a braided silk cord that you can tie any way you please. The Modern Vintage “Georgie” sandals, meanwhile, have a gladiator-meets-dominatrix feel that toughens up the look. Featuring a peep toe, exposed platform, chunky heel, ankle straps with a back zipper closure, and elaborate linear cut-outs throughout, the Georgie sandal plays peek-a-boo with the onlooker, creating a playful but strong vibe.
Now, these wardrobe additions are my type of prescription medication!
