Comfy Shift

DSC_6091_2Hello!  Ever have those days where even your inner fashionista can’t compromise comfort for fashion?  This is one of those evenings for me.  A celebratory dinner on a night where my inclination was to curl up in a soft, oversized tee.  I needed to pull together a polished look which was unequivocally effortless.  This is the moment where I kowtow with submissive gratitude to the shift dress.  Its columnar silhouette lacking waist definition is forgiving and easy to wear!  Precisely what a night like this called for.  Are you remotely surprised that it’s lace?  Besides, I love the floret pattern of this dress.  To keep the look balanced, I pair it with a lightweight coat which cinches at the waist.  I slip into a reasonably comfortable pair of heels.  Yes, heels!  When you’re petite heels are not optional.  With minimal accessories in place, I’m ready to celebrate.  The best part…I have a lot of room for dessert!  😉

Monochromatic Studs & Laser Cuts

Happy Mother’s day weekend!  Lately, I’ve been finding myself running from point A to point B only to have to turn around and return to point A.  It’s physically exhausting and, unfortunately, it’s been draining the creative fashionista in me.  It’s times like this that I turn to monochromatic pairing.  Especially black with black.  This is a very similar outfit to one I threw on in ten minutes last weekend before heading out to dinner in San Francisco.  The only difference is I should have worn these knee high socks with are so comfortable yet chic.  I always like to break up a monochromatic ensemble by mixing in texture and/or accenting with a pop of color.  In this case, since my skirt is heavily embellished with studs and laser cuts I skipped the pop of color altogether.  In retrospect, I could of chosen a vibrant lipstick.

Catherine Malandrino was really ahead of the trend with this skirt.  I picked up this skirt three years ago and, at the time, it looked so futuristic.  Today, it’s right on par with the current trends this season.  In fact, I can’t seem to take my eyes off of anything with laser cuts.  Be forewarned, more laser cuts to follow! 😉

This gunmetal necklace is my favorite necklace which I’ve worn in the Deja Blue post.  I would share the brand, but I haven’t a clue.  It was a random find at a local shop in Greenwich Village during my last trip to New York.  What I love most about this necklace is its weightlessness which makes is so easy and comfortable to wear.  Weighty necklaces make me feel shackled and like a slave to fashion.  Never a good thing!
