Lace and Nude Culottes

I have to admit, when I first saw this Keepsake the Label two piece, I didn’t want to try it on. Not because I didn’t like it, but frankly, I’m just not really a into lace. Especially the kind that has a nude underlay so it looks like you’re naked underneath. It just feels a bit too bare and unfinished for me.

I now bite my tongue because I fell in love with this crop top and high-waisted culotte combo the second I put it on. The tight, fitted top sucked me in and made my waist look small, which is crucial when wearing oversized, wide-leg, calf-grazing trousers. I’ve been really into the culotte trend so expect to see many more. I also loved how the nude lining almost matched my skin perfectly. Being really pale, I find that most neutral “nude” slips are far too dark and/or yellow and look quite sallow and sad against my pale pinky skin. I thought about wearing the pants with a solid black crop top –– then thought, why not just go for the full set. read more

My Oscar Diary

OMG, THE OSCARS! I just wrapped the busiest, and most exciting, part of the year –– Awards Season and Fashion Week! This year I spent many late Sunday nights working the Golden Globes, SAG Awards, and Grammys, and jet-set to NY in the midst of the madness to cover Fashion Week. But the pay off is, and always will be, the Oscars.

This year, I hosted an hour and a half long live show with one of my favorite co-hosts, Matthew Rodrigues, for popsugar.com. We had an incredible spot –– perched up top on the press bridge, right next to Ross Matthews and Kelly Osbourne from E! read more

Day 1:

I have been on a real navy kick lately, so I thought, what better way to kick off one of my favorite weeks of the year with my new go-to hue? Enter: every piece of navy I could get my hands on.

I started off my day with Noon by Noor, and I think I found the dress I want to wear next week to the Oscars –– finger’s crossed! I love the muted gray hue punctuated with those heavily embellished sleeves. After that, it was off to ICB by Prabal Gurung at The Glass Houses. I could live in every single look in this presentation. And the rug game was really strong, need all of these for my new place. read more

How to Make a Potato Sack Dress Look Cute

I am not really a dress girl. I feel most comfortable in trousers, button ups, and blazers (with a fun shoe or two thrown into the mix.) But ever-so-often, a dress will speak to me –– usually of the oversized, bag lady variety.

I love the “where’s the body” game, ie: the dress is so big you can’t see my figure. While this might deter others from wearing it, I jump at the opportunity. Enter: this H&M blue and orange chevron print number. I classed it up with some sparkly ShoeDazzle heels that make me feel like SJP in Sex and the City and topped it off with an equally oversized white blazer by Cameo the Label that has an embossed pattern strikingly similar to my potato sack dress. Irreverent and unrelated or totally intentional? I guess I’m the only one that knows . . . read more
