Carven Coat

Outfit details: Carven coat, St. John top, Lafayette 148 blouse, Alexander Wang skirt, Dior booties, Dior bag, Dior scarf, Dylanlex necklace

I bought this coat from Net-A-Porter in the sales, but I would have loved it even had I paid full price. It's heavy enough to work in Boston for the winter and bright enough to bring me out of my winter rut! To make it even better, Tamron Hall from the Today Show was wearing it this week. I think she has the best style and just wears clothes beautifully.

Seasonless Dress and Favorite Boots

 

Outfit details: Chloé dress, Stuart Weitzman boots, Neiman Marcus sweater, Givenchy bag 

I bought this dress in the early fall and definitely haven't worn it enough. But oh how I love it. I felt really good the day I wore this and I can't wait to wear it come spring with bare legs and cool sandals. 

I also have to say that these boots are favorites of mine. Super comfy but also super cool. And for me they have the perfect heel; nice and chunky and not too high.

Outfit Archive

Outfit details: CH Carolina Herrera dress (other cute options here and here) and coat, Dior bag and shoes

Boy it's been awhile since I've posted here!  I've really been enjoying doing the You Tube videos (find me here).  As I sit here watching TV, I was trying to get inspired as to what to wear tomorrow.  I've been finding myself wearing the same things over and over. So I came here to my little place on the interwebs to check out what I was wearing last winter. But lo and behold, there's not much to see.

So here you have it, an outfit from the fall that I took photos of and never posted. This was from the annual Breast Cancer Research Foundation luncheon that I attend each year in Boston.

Currently Coveting :: Brooks Brothers

As I mentioned last week (video here), I attended an event at Brooks Brothers to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Brooks Brothers holds this event in Boston every year where they donate a portion of the proceeds of all sales to the BCRF. I generally don't find the clothes at Brooks Brothers to be my personal style however I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised at several of the items that I saw in the store. There were still all of the quintessential Brooks Brothers items, but the smattering of things that suited my taste was a lovely change. Of course, the things I liked sell for a higher price point than the standard!


I love the classic simplicity of this camel top.  I like it with the matching skirt but I also think it would look lovely with a pair of grey trousers. And this is the perfect canvas for some bold statement jewelry. 

This is the kind of top that I could get quite a lot of use out of. There is so much that is special about this from the metallic jacquard fabric to the elbow length bell sleeves. 

Talk about a coat worth getting through the winter in; the floral jacquard fabric, removable fur collar and the cocoon shape all are calling my name!

The picture of this muted leopard coat doesn't do its craftmanship justice. The seaming detail in the back defines the body in the best way.

And lastly is this leather shift dress in navy. This is the kind of dress that can carry you through the better part of the year (except the really hot summer months). Wear it now with tights and boots or with sandals and bare legs once it's warm again.

So what do you think of what Brooks Brothers has to offer?

Saks Key to the Cure

This past Thursday evening, Saks hosted its annual Key to the Cure Event which is an event in support of Dana Farber women's cancers. The event had a fashion presentation of a number of looks styled by various local stylish Bostonians. As you likely know, my best friend is a breast cancer survivor and she was one of the stylists of the event. 

This was one of my favorite looks.  The dress and bag were Chloé and the boots were Chanel. I love how the Chloé dress has a boho vibe, but in what I think is a do-able way (I'd totally wear this!). 

I'm usually mostly at peace with my body and what I can and cannot wear. Except that is, every time I lay eyes on a Balmain blazer like this one in leather (or this one). 

The structured shape of this jacket is what really got me. I love it paired over a fit and flare dress but it would be equally fabulous with a pair of slim cigarette trousers.

I find the layering is what makes this outfit the most interesting. And the Givenchy military jacket adds an extra oomph. 

And leave it to Elisha to bring the bold colors to life with a pink feather embellished Pucci dress (it is breast cancer awareness month after all) boldly paired with royal blue Roger Vivier shoes and clutch.

Which is your favorite look?
