bringing it back



Wearing: Urban Outfitters Faux Leather Skater Skirt (similar) | Banana Republic Turtleneck (similar) | c/o Rebecca Minkoff Crossbody (similar) | c/o Celine Sunnies via SmartBuyGlasses | Marc Fisher Blaine Shooties

When was the last time you wore a turtleneck? Seriously. Not a cute, comfy, oversized knit turtleneck.. a cotton turtleneck, like the ones we rocked back in fourth grade. Like every other girl in America, I have items in my closet that I've never worn & have been hanging on to for years convincing myself "someday.. I'll wear it." This Banana Republic turtleneck is one of them, for sure.

It's pretty obvious everyone hates getting pretty in the winter. Slushing those brand new heels through snow, freezing your legs off in tights, & covering your cute outfit with a winter jacket is just not pretty but.. fashion over warmth, any day. Introducing the turtleneck.. keeping you warm without the extra baggage of tying your scarf to your handbag at the bar. I dressed up this guy with a faux leather mini & gold trimmed leather booties (avoid suede in the snow) - an outfit that is both cute & warm for those bitter winter days. What are some clever ways you stay chic & warm in this New England weather?

'tis the season

Holiday parties are right around the corner, folks! Work parties, friends parties, family parties.. you know it, you're going. I, personally, can't wait for my work party.. it's at Fenway - so cool! I've been on the hunt for the perfect holiday dress that will last me a few wears (& can even be worn on New Years Eve) & I figured it was only right to share my finds with you. Thankfully, my office is not restrictive on clothing so anything goes, really.. but I understand some parties may be more laid back or more dressier, which is why I provided you with an array of options - all different prices, too!

My tips for holiday dressing:
  • You can never go wrong with a LBD but, keep it classy with longer hemline.
  • Wear tights - nude or sheer black! Bare legs are for summer, duh.
  • Avoid open toe shoes with tights. Wear pumps or a leather booties!
  • Match your accessories to the detailing of the dress. If the zipper's gold (& visible), wear gold jewelry.
  • If your dress is loud, say.. a sequin number, keep your make-up simple.
  • Invest in a pretty jacket. No one looks cute wearing a parka over a ballgown.
  • Stand straight, walk tall, & PARTY
