So I don’t know about you… but I find that the phrase “Fashion in the workplace” is almost an Oxymoron. Unless you’re working at the Vogue or Elle offices (Super jealy if you are!), you’re probably more used to seeing muted colors, over-sized suits (complete with mid length skirts and shoulder padded poly blend jackets), and “sensible shoes”– that term alone makes me shudder in disgust.
Fortunately, I have decided to answer your office get-up woes with a new installment called, Keepin’ It Corporate. My first focus is on Court Room Dressing, as requested by my newly esquired friend, Katherine. This style savvy lawyer finds it hard to be well-dressed and still taken seriously in the court room. Certainly no easy feat, but I think even the toughest judges would appreciate a little color and some polka dot prints, to liven up their chambers.
Independance Day is one of my absolute favorite Holidays. It falls right near my Birthday (hellooo extended celebrations!), and it is right in the middle of summer so all activities revolve around drinking, grilling, water sports, and the great outdoors. PLUS short hemlines are encouraged — how could you go wrong with that?!? Above is my ideal 4th of July BBQ outfit, which keeps the wears pretty basic and really lets the accessories shine. HAPPY 4th OF JULY EVERYONE! Xoxox, S
HAPPY FRIDAY LOVIES!!
It’s mid day Friday, and although I have piles of files threatening to spill over my desk.. I just cannot seem to focus on work (imagine R. Kelly singing “it’s the freakin’ weekend baby, I’m about to have me some fun” over and over in your head– that’s where I’m at). As my thoughts linger on Saturday beauty treatments, and Sunday funday, I am mentally scanning my closet to come up with this weekend’s ideal getup… And my thoughts go instantly to tangerine and green. What style savvy threads will you be busting out this weekend?
Dress: BCBG (old) . Shoes: Kate Spade . Bag: Letty (last seen here) . Nails: Essie ‘lilacism’ Necklace: Danielle Stevens
So I don’t know about you ladies, but for me wearing red is like an instant mood lifter, and a surefire attention getter. I love to don the color for formal events, as it typically stands out amongst the sea of long black gowns, and conservative cocktails dresses. The shade looks great ON EVERYONE (yes even red-heads- ex.here) but if you’re not into the red hot, head-to-toe look, it also works fabulously as an accent piece (think red scarf, handbag, or just a swipe of red lipstick). However, if you’re looking to be a bit more bold and bright at your next affair grab one of these gorg dresses, and you’ll be a defininte standout at any soiree.
P.S. The Bottega Veneta gown is my dream dress so for any generous readers out there, my bday is coming up and I am a size 2. Thanks! xoxo, S
