Pretty Pink Tulle Party Dress

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone is having a great week!  Unfortunately I am late with my post because I was robbed at Whole Foods (the one on Kirby) and I have been dealing with the fall out – canceling credit cards, bank cards, drivers license….a nightmare.  The police informed me that this is going on around town – holiday madness!  Please be careful of your surroundings and lock your door immediately when getting in your car.

On a happier note – I just finished Reputations by Juan Gabriel Vásquez!  It was my first read by the Columbian author and I was entranced.  I cannot imagine how wonderful this book was in Spanish because the english translation was fantastic.  Inspires me to learn spanish (which is my New Years goal every year).

And now on to the OOTD for today.  I bought this dress in aubergine (seen here) and I loved it so much that I ordered it in blush pink as well. The dress was a complete hit!  I wore it to Mr. Wonderful’s company holiday party and it was the perfect amount of festive and flirty.  I kept things simple with all the accessories and just added a bit of pizzazz with my shoes.  I have had these studded shoes forever and they are such a classic pair of shoes which can be dressed up and down.

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.

Asymmetrical Top & Gold Belt

Hello lovelies!

Hope everyone is having a great day!  I am just doing a quick post for a new fun top I just bought and wore to a girls lunch a few days ago.  The blue in this top is perfection and I love the subtle pattern and lightweight silk which allows it to drape beautifully.  I kept the outfit simple with just a few accessories and barely there sandals.  I added my summer staple clutch and I was ready to roll.  I have also worn the top loose and flowing over a pair of skinny jeans and it looked fantastic without the belt as well!

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!

Fall Trends: Choker & Platforms

Hello lovelies!

Hope everyone has had a great week!  Just wanted to share a quick post today.  I came across this top and I adore it.  The double panel in front is amazing because it ensures I do not have to wear a camisole underneath.  Makes the top much more user-friendly!  I added a few of my favorite fall trends to complete the outfit – choker and platforms!

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….)

Flirty & Feminine: Black Ruffled Dress

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone has been having a great week! The rain has been falling steadily here, but today started with a glimmer of sunshine through my window and it is amazing how much my mood has improved. As I recall sunnier days, I am taken back to this photo shoot from Rosemary Beach…..I am always looking for a fun flirty dress, and when I came across this one it was instant love! The black background with the cream embroidery is the perfect balance of delicate and flirty, and the ruffles across the bodice complement the fun, flirty feel. The dress also comes in a mint green which is gorgeous!

Given all of the embroidery and ruffles on this dress (which deserve to be the center of attention), I added no accessories other than my usual daily jewelry, black block heels (totally on trend) and a black-detailed straw bag. As you know, I love an item of clothing that can do double duty – I have also styled this dress as a fun top, adding a long black skirt and a wide black belt on bottom – no one was the wiser! The dress became two separate pieces of clothing, which makes it a great option for vacation packing….

I have also styled with dress with black ballet flats and a chic black cross-body bag for easy day-to-day errands after school drop-off.

I hope that gives you some good ideas for multiple stylings for the dress!
