Perfect Dress for Holiday Parties

Hello lovelies!

It has been so long since I posted.  I hope everyone survived Harvey and is in a better place now.  I was very fortunate and it didn’t seem right to post during all the chaos everyone was experiencing.  But the city has pulled together, the Astros have won and Thanksgiving is almost here!

Before I get to the OOTD I would like to discuss The Handmaid’s Tale – on Hulu.  If you have not seen it I recommend you do so immediately.  I cannot confirm nor deny but I may have binge watched it in two days.  But that is neither here nor there.  The series is based on the novel by Margaret Atwood which I read eons ago.  I do not remember details anymore which is great because I have gotten to see the series through fresh eyes.  I always love a show where the characters are so multi-dimensional that you are not sure if you love them or hate them.  I cannot wait for the next season!

I came across this dress online and completely fell in love.  I am obsessed with this color – aubergine.  It could be that Houston has finally reached temperatures low enough that it feels like it may actually be Fall (sort of).  But dark jewel tones remind me of New York this time of year – and I so rarely see this rich color.  It is the perfect shade.  The dress fit off the rack which is amazing and the best part – it is under a $100 and very well made.  That is not a typo!  I love the tulle, the backless element and the tea length.  I wore it to a gala but it can easily be worn to holiday parties or ladies lunches.  I also wore it out with a small denim jacket and some stilettos.

Comfy Travel Outfit: New Brand Discovery & Silver Kicks

Hello lovelies!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!  I just got back from my getaway and wanted to share some outfit posts that I was frankly too lazy to posy while I was on vacay with family and friends.   I just love it when I discover a new brand!  I was browsing online and came across this ATM dress – it is extremely soft cotton which feels luxurious.  It is the perfect brand for comfy chic clothing around town and for travel clothing!  I also bought some slim joggers  (in military color) which I wore on the flight back with a comfy T and a blazer and they are divine (I got compliments in customs)!  I can’t even describe how soft the cotton feels and it wore extremely well on the flight.   I threw on my silver kicks (which I wore all over London and Rome) and I was ready to roll!

London: Red, White & Blue

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone is having a great summer!  I just got back from London and I must admit I am a bit jet lagged.  I took a break from posting during the holiday because I pretty much hung out and partied with my friends and family but don’t worry I did take photos!  I wore this dress around London while I was shopping (yeah it was sale season) and sight-seeing in Rome – it is so comfy!  It is also perfect for Fourth of July holiday and I am sporting it today!  I just got introduced to this designer while she was having a trunk show in Houston – her pieces are extremely reasonably priced and fun to wear.  This dress did not wrinkle at all so it was perfect for travel.  Isn’t it great when you can repeat an outfit?!? But the silver kicks were a part of my every day uniform.  They have been an awesome investment and with the fall silver craze coming they will be spot on trend wise in the fall as well.

Baby Blue: Flirty Feminine Lace & Ankle Tie Shoes

Hello lovelies!

Greetings from London!  I have been encountering some technology issue so I apologize for not posting sooner!  I am here for a fun family holiday and the weather is extremely hot!  They are experiencing a heat wave – and without air conditioning at most places (my inner Houstonian almost passed out) it gets to be a bit toasty.  I have been dreaming of ice cubes quite a bit.  But heat wave aside the city is gorgeous and still one of my favorite places ever!

This is a quick post of a dress I came across during the Nordstrom sale that I wore out to a fun girls lunch!  The lace is absolutely gorgeous and the color of this dress is out of this world.  When I saw it I was reminded of the Self-Portrait lace dress (worn here) but at a much more reasonable price (and its on sale)!  Win-win all around.

Pink Blossoms & Shimmer

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful week!  The Nordstrom sale is still going strong and I came across this dress that I have fallen in love with completely – especially the pockets.  The pictures do not do it justice.  What is so hard to capture is the shimmer of gold throughout the dress which gives it such an enchanting look.  I got compliments all night when I wore it!

NYC: Red Lace & Nude Heels

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone is having a great week!  I just wanted to share a quick post about one of my favorite dresses.  It is a beautiful deep red – an almost burgundy color.  I love it so much I am contemplating getting it in other colors!!  I have owned this particular dress for a while and it has been perfect for many occasions.  It is my favorite fit and flare silhouette and to keep the focus on the dress I kept the heels and accessories minimal.  These shoes really do go with everything!

Pretty in Pink: Lace Dress & Nude Heels

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  I want to share a quick post about this gorgeous dress that I took to Miami with me.  I wore it out to dinner with Mr. Wonderful and when I came out he exclaimed “babe that is the definition of pretty in pink!  Of course that made me even happier.  This dress is really well made and fits perfectly off the rack.  The lace is heavy weight which makes it fit nicely and it is spot on with the lace trend.  The price point cannot be beat especially when compared to other lace dresses on the market.  I added nude heels to keep the focus on the dress and some gold circle earrings (my new faves) and I was ready for date night!

Perfect Summer Dress: Midi & Ruffles

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone is having a great week!  I am sharing this fabulous dress that I wore in Miami – it was lightweight, did not wrinkle easily and I love the army color.  I added my new favorite earrings that I am wearing on repeat (the are only $32 and they go with everything).  I received constant compliments when I wore them around Miami.  I completed the look with some wedges and a simple but beautiful black bag.  I love the simplicity of this bag and it also comes with a cross-body strap which is the icing on the cake (it also comes in a lovely natural color which is a great neutral).  It is roomy enough to carry my camera and accessories that I may or may not have purchased as I was walking around 🙂

Gingham Mania

Hi lovelies!

Hope everyone is enjoying this amazing weather!  Gingham is no longer just for tablecloths – it has been transformed into fun dresses, tops, skirts and even shoes for summer.  Nothing says summer time like gingham.  It is a lightweight cotton that drapes beautifully and is perfect for summer heat.  I wore this outfit to lunch and got tons of compliments.  I belted my dress and added fun flats.  I became instantly brunch ready!

Blushing Pink at the Christian Siriano Show

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful week! I must confess, I have been enjoying my fall break in Rosemary with the kiddos and Mr. Wonderful, so my blog was on the back burner all week. There is nothing like a week away from home to recharge the batteries. Lucky for me, it also happened to be South Walton Fashion Week, so I was able to attend a number of shows and to see some amazing new emerging talent (as well as the Christian Siriano pre-show peek at Alys beach!) The weather was perfect – blue skies, puffy clouds and a great breeze. Since the show was outdoors, I decided to keep things fun and easy with this super cute pink full skirt (I had mine shortened) and a loose white button down shirt. To give the outfit a little “edge”, I added my studded pumps and a fun belt. I also grabbed my favorite new clutch from Misela (which I purchased at Atrium RTW at a recent trunk show; and the best part – I got to pick my colors and stitching, so of course it is blush pink….)
