I’ve been searching for another midi skirt for what seems like forever. My goal was to find something that would be heavy enough for colder months, but still had a fun pattern, and was (of course) figure flattering. This proved to be harder than I thought, but after several online orders and returns, I finally found what I was looking for in the most unexpected place…Abercrombie & Fitch. Yes, you read that right. The graphic tee, cologne-doused A&F of our youth now sells cute, feminine clothes for adults! Although I could have gone with the matching crop top look, I decided to stick with one patterned piece, and instead opted for my go-to chambray shirt and a statement necklace. This skirt is made of super comfy neoprene (and fun to twirl in), so you’ll definitely be seeing it again. Read More →
Hanukkah kicked off last night, and Christmas is just around the corner…so, it’s time to start thinking about what you’re wearing for New Year’s Eve! I’m always an advocate of sequins for the holiday season, but there are plenty of ways to embrace subtle sparkle with jacquard fabrics and embellished accessories too. These dresses are all under $100, and if you’re hesitant to buy something new, think about how you could transform a special occasion dress for everyday.
I’m an only child, but I’m lucky to have a close, brother-like relationship with my cousin Adam. We grew up halfway across the country from each other, but now we only live ten blocks away. In a couple of months, Adam is getting married to his wonderful fiancee, Juli, and we spent this weekend celebrating with family and friends. For Juli’s bridal shower on Saturday, I wore this beautiful lace dress that I scored at the Rent the Runway sample sale. It originally sells for almost $400, and I paid $65…SUCH a great find! I love the fit & flare shape and how the bright blue peeks out from behind white lace. Perfect for a happy occasion! Read More →
What’s black, white, and re(a)d all over? Cute fall/winter outfits! Whether red is your base color or an accent, this classic shade is the perfect contrast to an otherwise neutral look. Even though it’s December, red doesn’t have to look Christmasy. Try a LRD like Kendi’s with black and white accessories and outerwear. Add black opaque tights for colder nights. Incorporate red with patterns and knits. Paint on a coordinating lip, and you’re ready for anything!
Full disclosure: because of a couple of bumps in the road (and snowflakes in the sky) while photographing this outfit, there’s a bizarre combination of indoor/outdoor, clear/less clear shots…but, I was just too excited to not share. What looks like a blush tulle skirt is in fact, the dress that I wore to celebrate my birthday over the summer. Adding a blouse and a blazer reinvents the look and makes it office appropriate. Tights and booties kept me warm, despite the snowflakes, and a coordinated lip color brought all of the pinks together. Although tulle wasn’t the best choice for inclement weather, I felt pretty and feminine all day long. Read More →
