The holidays are officially here and that means copious parties, delicious goodies, and gifts galore. I don’t know about you, but I always seem to collect dresses around the holiday season, even if I don’t necessarily have that many parties to go to– I like to have options, what can I say? This season is no different. I’ve started my dress collecting early and this taupe velvet midi dress was first on my list. I was a little reluctant to get on board with the velvet trend. I know it’s huge right now, but when I think velvet, I think of ALL of my childhood Christmas dresses that I wore with white tights and black patent leathers. You know the dresses I’m talking about, full velvet with either a bow or an embroidered poinsettia? They were absolutely appropriate for the church pageants and family gatherings when I was 10, but as a 20-something I couldn’t wrap my head around a full velvet dress. I decided to take a chance and jump on the bandwagon, and I couldn’t be happier. Not only is this dress silky and soft, but it’s classy and sophisticated. The high neckline makes it modest, while its bodycon fit is sexy and stylish. Not only will this be a dress for a holiday gathering, but I can even wear it for a date night. Stay tuned for more of my holiday dress picks.

(GUEST OF THE) WEDDING DRESS DILEMMA

Last night…well actually for about a month now, I’ve been listening to my best friend stress over what to wear to the summer weddings she’s attending. Since I spent the night with her going over choices, and her being as indecisive as ever I decided to dedicate this post to finding the best dress. As you know, guest of the wedding dress shopping is quite a heavy task, especially when you’re attending a wedding with friends you haven’t seen in a while. You want to look stunning, without trying too hard; you don’t want to oversell the fact that you look amazing–it has to look effortless as if you just happened to find a dress hanging in your closet. When I choose my dresses for weddings, I first gauge the type of crowd I’ll be surrounded by and work from there. If it’s a more ‘mature’ group I’ll choose something modest and elegant, if it’s a  less ‘mature’ (hahah) I like to wear something flirty and body-conscious. The dress I chose for my most recent wedding is this lace embellished one from SheInside; it’s the best of both. Its high neck and lace details make it modestly sophisticated, while the body-con fit highlights my assets and adds some sex appeal. It’s by far my favorite and will be making appearances at many upcoming weddings. As for my friend, she has finally decided on a dress at least I think so, actually I’m not really sure at least it’s down to three options–it’ll  have to be a game time decision; there’s no helping some people ;).

CALL ME, MRS. POTTS

DSC_0683 editedDSC_0659 editedDSC_0664 editedDSC_0717 editedDSC_0720 editedDetails: SheInside blue and white floral crop top and short set, here  | Franco Sarto sandals via Marshall’s, here  |

I’ve always been partial to a matching crop top and short set, in fact this isn’t my first time posting about one. However, this set (one that my boyfriend tells me I look like a tea pot in) only because the intricate pattern reminds him of an ACTUAL oriental tea set. And after talking to friends and questioning my own boyfriend, I’ve come to a conclusion that there are a good deal of guys out there that have a strong distaste for rompers, jumpsuits and matching sets. Nonetheless, I don’t really care what anyone thinks but I was wondering why they hate them so much. Maybe it reminds some of their childhood, where they were forced to pose in family photos donning a onesie or a matching ensemble from their great Aunt Mary. I get that, and understand how haunting a memory that could be, especially since  it’s one they will never be able to live it down. But I hate to break it to you boys, onesies and sets are here to stay—for now. I like this one in particular because of its pattern; I don’t have anything like it and I’m partial to crisp white and royal blue. It’s definitely an outfit you can dress up or down, I took a more casual approach with my Franco Sarto gladiator sandals (which are SO comfortable btw). If you’re a lover of matching sets and onesies, rock them all season long—you look FABULOUS!
