The LBS (Little Black Sweater)

People often ask me what I enjoy the most about blogging, and my answer is always some version of “meeting creative people.” Those people are not only fellow bloggers, but the people behind the scenes who create or curate the fashion that we bloggers wear. I love meeting emerging local designers, especially women, and am always interested in promoting their creative endeavors. My latest collaboration is with D.C. based Nicole Alfieri, the designer behind the knitwear brand Pico Vela and I must say that it is a match made in heaven. Read More »

Plaid Pencil Skirt – Take Deux

As you may have noticed, I am a sucker for all things plaid at the moment, whether it be a masculine(ish) pant suit or this great faux wrap skirt, I just can’t get enough of this pattern! I loved dressing this skirt up in boss lady style in an earlier post (Take Un – see it here), but I also really like the edgy, tomboy vibe of this look. Read More »

Lady in Red

A few years ago, my husband and I were having Christmas dinner at a very fancy restaurant in Paris, and I saw a woman wearing the most beautiful red silk dress I have ever seen. I immediately recognized it as one of Alessandro Michele’s designs (see a similar iteration here), looked at my husband, and whispered “Gucci” with a sigh. I had seen similar styles worn by bloggers on Instagram, but I always love to see pieces like these in real life, worn by real (LOL) people. Read More »

Fall Florals

The floral print trend has definitely grown on me, so I’m glad it’s still a thing for fall and winter. I particularly like the maxi versions, like this one, which transition well into the colder months with the help of a good pair of knee high boots, like these. Read More »

Plaid Pencil Skirt – Take Un

I’m loving the suiting trend this season, especially checkered versions that combine classic silhouettes with whimsical details. This high-waisted, faux wrap skirt from H&M is the perfect example. The fabric, a classic black and white Prince of Wales plaid, is a nod to traditional men’s suiting, while the curve-hugging shape, thigh high slits, and bow at the waist give the skirt a flirty, feminine vibe.

Venice Blues

One of the best things about visiting family in California is getting to dress down – like way down. I spend most of my days there in flip flops, a bikini, and some appropriate cover up, and no one blinks an eye! I picked up this street-ready caftan and was ready to go anywhere (with the addition of a few upscale accessories if needed). Read More »

Cherry Bomb

I love to wear barely there slip dresses in summer, especially when they feature flouncy ruffle details like this one does.  The cherry print fabric is an added bonus – just the right touch of whimsy juxtaposed with a sexy, ultra-feminine silhouette. Read More »
