Fall Uniform

Outfit details: H&M top (old but similar here), M Missoni skirt, Burberry jacket (from a few seasons ago but similar here and here), Valentino shoes, Balenciaga bag, Stephanie Kantis necklace, Hermés bracelet

It's hard to believe it's come to this; back to the fall uniform. I have mixed emotions with this time of year. I'm sad to leave summer behind but this is my favorite time of year for getting dressed. Give me layers and jackets any day. I wore this outfit to death last year and I think it will still be in regular rotation.

NYFW Spring 2015 :: Hervé Léger

Images via style.com

I am always a fan of Hervé Léger from afar but for my life the ubiquitous bandage dresses don't work for me. So I was pleasantly surprised to see something different for spring in the bright colors, prints and structural design. I love the assymetry of the first look layered over a bandage skirt and the kimono top of the last look

Full Regalia



Outfit details: Valentino dress, jacket and shoes, Chanel bag, Alexis Bittar bracelet (similar here)

One evening last week, I was heading to the opening of the Hollywood Glamour exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts here in Boston with my friend Lani. I had an early morning doctor's appointment and a full day's work before so the question was: do I dress all day for the evening's festivities or do I run home to change. I ended up dressing in the evening getup for the whole day. It's better to be overdressed than underdressed, right?

The Hollywood Glamour exhibit was super fabulous (though it's small). If you're in the area, I definitely recommend checking it out (and I posted a few pics on my instagram).

Blue  

Outfit details: Worth dress (similar here and here), Manolo Blahnik shoes (similar here and here), Céline bag, Hermés scarf, Alexis Bittar necklace (similar here), Hermés bangles

It's that time of year for transitional dressing. Sleeveless dresses in seasonless weights and colors, layered if needed. This is what I wore one day last week when no layers were required; we had the hottest weather we've had all summer.

NYFW Spring 2015 :: Black & White

I'm like a kid in a candy store this time of year with all the fashion week coverage everywhere. I've been pouring over the photos from the runway shows. One thing that never goes out of style is classic black and white of which there was plenty. Here are some of my favorites so far.

Sally LaPointe

I love a long tunic top or dress over trousers and this look is right up my alley. Plus I am a fan of the oversized clutch in contrasting white.

Give me a structured shoulder and a sexy zippered pencil skirt and I'm a happy gal.

Ralph Rucci

Here's another dress over trousers combo but this one is more of an evening look. All black might be considered boring but not with all this texture.

The classic white jacket with what looks like the brushstrokes from an impressionist pairs perfectly with classic black slim trousers.
