Fashion Friday: What Does One Wear to their own book party???

Friday, August 15th, 2014

As you know this book has been a long process, which is finally ramping up to the release October 7th! So fair warning, you’ll be hearing A LOT about it, tour plans, parties, giveaways and signings in the next month and a half. Until I have a human baby to talk incessantly about, THIS is my baby (in fact, it took me exactly 9 months to write and shoot, oddly enough). Even though it’s a little early, I’ve started thinking about what to wear not only to the big launch in Boston, but to the other seven book parties across the country. No pressure (cue me breathing shallowly into a paper bag).  I’ve started bookmarking stuff and will be posting some outfit thoughts here…. starting with this one:
bookparty

1. Sleeveless black turtleneck sweater. Warm yet not dowdy for October evenings.

2. The Gates satchel- duh.

3.  I did get these crazy amazing shoes specifically for the tour.  I have to pack light so I figured one statement shoe and one pair of classic black pumps should get me through eight parties. Ok, maybe one other pair.

4. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this sequin skirt! Paired with the chunky knit sweater it’s a fab mix of textures.

5. It’s not on their site yet, but the new Tiffany T Collection bangle is my new obsession. So classic, so lovely.

6. With turtlenecks it’s all about statement earrings. Love the vintage vibe of these.

7. The reason I’m doing all this.

8. When traveling I love a good eyeshadow palette- this one from Nars looks perfect for fall!

9. I smelled this new Armani fragrance the other day and love it for fall!

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!
