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!  😉

‘Boyfriend’ Dress

DSC_2747_2Hello and happy Friday!  Lately, it appears that anywhere one turns the ubiquitous, fashion buzz word which pops up is boyfriend.  The boyfriend blazer, boyfriend jeans, boyfriend tee, boyfriend watch, etc…you get my point.  Born from the seductive notion of wearing your boyfriend’s clothes, the shirt dress is yet another item directly borrowed from men’s fashion.  It has inarguably evolved into an essential staple in women’s fashion.  However, just like any other boyfriend trend, it should not look like you are unquestionably wearing someone else’s clothes.  Rather, a shirt dress should be loosely fitted , but proportioned to accentuate your figure.  Always belt a shirt dress to avoid a frumpy mess!  That’s my only rule.  Other than that, have fun accessorizing a shirt dress because it can be taken any direction.  Casually on a weekend, sexy in the evening, or professionally at the office the shirt dress is VER-SA-TILE! 😉
