Custom Made Dresses

While this dress isn’t the most practical dress I own, it sure is a fun one! I can’t wear it to about half of the festivities on my calendar (#weddings) and I have to really watch what I eat and drink and where I sit (#suchaklutz), but the style is so carefree and wearing it just makes me happy. It’s a bit on the sexier side with all of the skin being shown (thigh-high slits, side cut-outs, and no back.. oops!), but I think the white cotton material, high neck, and long length make it appropriate for fancy warm evenings or even date night!

Always Buy The Dress

An old manager of mine once told me, “If you find a dress you love that fits well, always buy it! The occasion will come.” It’s so true, don’t you think? There’s nothing worse than that last minute scramble to try to find a dress when a last minute invite comes your way! We’re typically quick to buy dresses that work for daytime and work events, knowing that we’ll get lots of use out of them, but special occasion dresses? Not so much! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard from friends, family, and even clients… “But where will I wear it?!” Sure, you may not know exactly where you’re going to rock the dress, but if you’re a busy gal on the go, chances are you’ve got a pretty packed social calendar, too. And I hate to even say “the h word,” but we’re turning the calendar towards a time of year where fun fetes will be happening pretty often!

New to Me in NYC

There’s really nothing I love more than a trip to New York City. (Except for the fact that I usually leave wondering why I ever moved away…) I visited at the beginning of the summer, but with my crazy travel schedule in July and August, I didn’t make it back for a visit until this month. And I guess I made up for lost time because I’ve been there twice in the last few weeks! ha But let’s talk about the first of my most recent trips.. Shall we? Lots of great recommendations!

Fall Florals

I’m all about easy dresses that can be worn now, but will transition seamlessly to cooler fall weather, too! Meet my new favorite dress: this little floral number from Nordstrom that’s under $80. I picked up this dress for NYFW and liked it so much that I ended up wearing it twice… Once to the Project Runway finale taping and once with a straw hat and crossbody bag for brunch with friends!

I actually just landed in London early this morning (more on that to come!) and packed this dress again for London Fashion Week. This time, I plan on styling it with a pair of black over-the-knee boots (either flat or heeled, depending on my day) and a moto jacket!
