Wondering what to wear to the upcoming Contemporary Art Auctions?  It is an exciting time for the New York and international art world as the Post-War and Contemporary Art sales commence this week with auctions starting today at such houses as Phillips de Pury, Sotheby’s and Christie’s.  Names such as Warhol, Rothko and Koons seemed to be effortlessly dropped around town as frequently as the word “Taxi!”  We put together a day-to-night outfit that can take you from bidding on art at an auction to discussing the market over drinks and dinner.  This chic Elie Tahari leather shift  dress is the perfect transition piece as will look totally cool while toting your auction catalogues in this roomy Reed Krakoff Bag and can easily be turned into an evening ensemble by adding a silk-wool coat and Kara Ross accessories, such as these stylish, high-design earrings, cuff and clutch.  The auction exhibitions are open to the public and should not be missed- between the fabulous art and interesting people, it is the best show in town!
