Fashion Friday: Wearing Navy & Black Together

Friday, August 8th, 2014

I asked readers on Twitter yesterday if there was any topic they were interested in for today’s post, and one person simply said “Can you really wear navy and black together?”  I thought that was a good question.  Wearing navy and black together has been one of those fashion rule no-no’s (like wearing white before Memorial Day- most people no longer “abide” by them.  There was a lot of navy and black together on the fall runways so I think we all need to be versed in how to pair these moody, dark colors together in a tasteful and clever way.

Fashion Friday: GiGi New York Gates Satchel GIVEAWAY!

Friday, July 25th, 2014

You guys know all about the bag I designed with Gigi New York, but recently I received it in tan and white and I’ve been carrying it every single day- not just because it’s my own design but because it’s the perfect size for my lifestyle. And the colors are spot on for summer outfits- case in point, it is the only bag I brought on my trip to The Greenbrier this summer.

Check it out!

Wonder I wanted to share, so I pulled together a few outfits to get you through a summer night out and an early fall weekend day. Because I for one am excited for fall.

First of all, thank you so much for all the thoughtful words of kindness yesterday. It was so uplifting for more people than just me. It’s nice to remind ourselves that none of us are alone in our struggles.

But let’s distract ourselves today with some pretty things. I love sources that that not only have amazing clothes, but home goods too. And a double love them when they are curated with a seriously edited, classically cool aesthetic.  The Dreslyn is one such source, sprinkling in some really awesome home goods within it’s fashion selection.  Their clothes (from the likes of Theory, A.P.C., Band of Outsiders, BLK Denim and Sophie Hulme) give off that “cool French girl” vibe.  Here’s a nice little collection of their simple, modern but classic goods in stripes, plaid, denim, stone, leather, tweed, leopard, wood and gold!
