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).

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.

Black and White and Red Lipstick

Outfit details: Pink Tartan dress (similar here and here), Zara jacket (old), Valentino shoes, Balenciaga bag, Hermés bangles, Tom Ford lipstick in scarlet rouge

Sometimes simple black and white just does the trick especially in an easy to wear fit and flare dress. Fit and flare is one of my favorite shapes and the stretchy material of this dress makes it comfy too. But I couldn't leave it at just black and white so I added a swipe of red lipstick from Tom Ford.

This or That :: Black and White

 

Marchesa Voyage dress ($495)

Alexander McQueen dress ($2695)

I had pinned this Alexander McQueen dress some time ago. I was always under the impression that McQueen ran small so assumed nothing would fit me. But on a jaunt to Bergdorf Goodman a couple of months ago during the major sales, I tried on a few dresses and realized that I was wrong. Since I love this fit and flare shape so much, especially in a knit, I've now got my eye on this black and white dress. In some of my online trolling, I found this Marchesa Voyage dress that looked quite similar, I still prefer the McQueen version but for the price difference I think the Marchesa Voyage dress is just fab. What do you think?
