New Look // Classic & Trendy LBD with pattern mixing

There’s nothing better than a little black dress. It’s always in style, it’s always flattering, and it’s always versatile. Here’s one I just bought that is flattering for my body type and even incorporates some trendy touches that I happen to love, namely, the tie at the neck and the billowy sleeves! The skater skirt is perfect for night and day, and I can even pull this off at work, maybe with a structured blazer?

New Look // Turtleneck under blue dress + magenta heels

Hi all! Today I have a fun look combining two of my current favorite colors: navy blue and magenta. I think this color combination is so fun, especially to brighten up a look during deep winter. Over here it’s not too cold anymore—seems like spring came early to New York! But since I’m still wearing stockings and light coats, this seems like a perfect outfit to start transitioning to the warmer weather!

New look // How to wear blue and black together

Happy Friday! Today I have a fun work look to share, built around these beautiful blue floral tights I received as a present from my cousins this Christmas. They’re gorgeous—I especially love the open weave of the leaf detail! These are definitely a statement piece, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to style a look with a color palette that gets a bad rep: blue and black.

New Look // Mixing patterns with a romantic dress

One of the reasons why I love winter fashion so much is the opportunity for layering, mixing patterns and textures, and creating energetic color combinations. You’ve got so much to work with in winter: stockings, dresses, layering shirts under or cardigans over a dress, scarves, etc. I love putting all the puzzle pieces together to create something fresh and new. In summer, my choices are more limited!

Hello all and happy new year! Hope your Eves and Days were wonderful, and you’re settling into a brand new year full of resolutions, determination, and hope. I had a great holiday season and now I’m looking forward to new beginnings! I put together this outfit with a party in mind, but this is also a look I would wear for work. I like the vintage style touches of this outfit, and thought I would show how to wear vintage style pieces for daytime, for any occasion. Hope you like this look!

Fashion // How to style colored tights in winter

For years, one of my favorite styles has been colored tights. I used to wear really bright ones very oddly, before I knew how to style colored tights right to make them look effortless and chic. I remember wearing bright blue and purple tights with fleur de lis designs on them when I was in college and thinking I was the height of fashionable! I still have those tights, but I’ve learned better ways to rock them.

Fashion ft. Dezzal // Patterned tights + sweater dress

End of summer means TIGHTS! I’m one of those girls who love stockings and tights of all kinds, and think that a good pair of tights can totally make an entire outfit. I love patterned tights, brightly-colored tights, soft knit ones, and thin sheer ones to achieve every kind of look possible.

Today, I’m highlighting these amazing brocade-patterned knit tights by Hue, paired with this amazing, heavy sweater dress from Dezzal. It’s a bit of an unusual style, because the hems are all artfully ripped in different places, which is why I absolutely had to have this dress to begin with! It’s heavy and warm, but the no-sleeves thing make it a good fall piece—perfect to transition! I hope you like this look…

Fashion // Jazz singer

Blacks and grays for today’s outfit, and a bit of a departure from my usual color-infused looks. I love these H&M tights for their open-weave knit pattern that reminds me of art deco. And this lined faux-fur vest is the perfect transition piece for when it’s too cold sans jacket! I bought the shoes in 2012, when I visited Italy the last time. My aunt helped me pick them out. 🙂 I love oxford/brogue-type shoes, and these are just too cute with the tassel!

I hope you like!

Fashion // Born to be free

Spring is approaching! Thought I’d get into the spirit of things and enjoy the warming weather with this bright, floral dress. Since it’s also (sometimes) warm enough to go without full stockings, I wore this with some knee highs, and my favorite Oxford booties. I love the transitions between seasons.

Fashion // Hang on to yourself

Crazy that spring is almost here. Kinda feel like summer just ended. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Over last weekend, it was warm enough to wear this shorts/crop top combo, and I love the colors in this outfit! I wore this to brunch for my cousin’s birthday. Coincidentally, she bought me this gorgeous burgundy top!
