Rihanna spends the day out and about in New York on July 19th 2009:

Four years ago, Rihanna spent her day out and about in New York. She was spotted doing some shopping, taking in a meal at Da Silvano, and later heading to London from a NY airport. Rihanna was seen at Da Silvano just days ago! Before we take a look at her outfit from the past, catch up on her Da Silvano look from the present (here).

Rihanna began her look with sunglasses from Lanvin. Her black Spring 2010 Pilot Sunglasses feature a unique aviator design inspired sunglass featuring silver hardware details. These same glasses were also spotted on Beyoncé and Kourtney Kardashian. Rihanna has continued to wear Lanvin’s eyewear, being recently seen in a pair (here).

In terms of jewelry, what really stood out in this look was her earrings. These Hell’s Angels tassel earrings are designed by Fallon. Her 4½” silver plated brass earrings feature gold tone aluminum chain tassels and crystals with a fishhook closure. Rihanna still loves Fallon’s jewelry. This year alone, she has worn their earrings, rings, bracelets and necklaces on several occasions! Check out all of her Fallon pieces from this year (here).

Rihanna wore a top from the brand, ALC. She opted for their ‘Sexy Back T-shirt’. This sleeveless jersey top features a ribbed scoop neck and arm openings. Ruching and crossover details are also key features of this top at its open back. This shirt has an unfinished bottom hem. Unfortunately, Rihanna’s $130 top has sold out at Shop Bop.

Under her shirt, Rihanna wore American Apparel’s Printed Cotton Spandex Jersey Cross-Back Bra. This latch-less striped bra features an elastic cross-back spaghetti straps and an elastic trim. You can get one at the link below for $16.00.

Rihanna then wore jeans from Current Elliott. Her 4-pocket ‘The Cropped Zip Denim Leggings’ feature brown stitching, a burnished gold button accent, clean back pockets, whiskering across the hips and knees, distressing down the legs and back, logo detailing, long burnished gold ankle zipper accents and a zipper/button closure.

Rihanna completed her look with $775 Mary Jane ankle boots from Maison Martin Margiela. These boots proved to be a favorite for Rihanna, as she wore them again just days later at the premiere event for the film, Inglourious Basterds. Check out what Rihanna wore on that occasion (here).

Rihanna carried along with her Nina Ricci’s $2,800 Pony Bag. Nina released an amazing line of designer handbags for the Fall season in 2009, and this Ondine Pony Hair shoulder bag was definitely a stand out piece in the collection. It’s all-black with a cute bow design on the front and a chain strap with leather interwoven through the chain.
