Wine Colored Dresses for Thanksgiving

wine colored dresses

In honor of Throwback Thursday today, I am revisiting a look from a year ago that is the perfect wine colored dress.  With Thanksgiving around the corner it's the perfect opportunity to introduce those rich wine colors like red, garnet, maroon, and bordeaux into your wardrobe.  It's a such an exquisite color that works particularly well this time of year. The color is not just rich but it lends itself to rich and intricate fabrications such as: lace, wool, and velvet.  The below dresses are perfect for a casual Thanksgiving or a fancy one...just make sure you let everyone know you match the wine! Here's a couple shots from last year and you can see the entire post here! Photos by Andrew Morales. Shop more wine colored dresses: [show_lookbook_widget id="317236"]  

That Off the Shoulder Top

off the shoulder top

   You may have noticed that the off the shoulder trend is one that fashion mavens cannot get enough of. It really is an adorable and sexy trend that transitions well into fall and winter looks as well. There are plenty of sweater and long sleeve options that are perfect for the cooler months. The particular off the should top I’m wearing (at a great price!) works well for summer, fall and winter. In these fall months, adding a colorful and chunky scarf is the perfect solution to cover up a bit. Considering you will probably be indoors most of the time when wearing this, I don’t think you’ll have to worry too much about covering up. I created a more casual look by pairing it with denim and simple stilettos and the Flatiron…

Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas!

Still thinking over that Halloween costume? Well I have some fun ideas that are only a few clicks away. Why not try a Disney character? Snow White – I was her last year and all you need to add to this costume is an apple (from the kitchen) and a pair of red stilettos (from your closet!). Dorothy Mary Poppins Go on trend: be political! Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump – there should be a slew of those this year! Thnk outside the box: Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch as a duo. Ivanka and her brothers. Nov. 8th ballot (filled in with your vote). Gary Johnson – What is Aleppo? Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Sean Hannity Movie Characters: Geena Davis or Tom Hanks from A League of Their own. Jennifer Grey from Dirty Dancing. Tom…

Shana Tova and My Next Adventure!


Shana Tova and happy 5777!  It happens to be Rosh Hashanah, which is the Jewish new year: an amazing time to reflect on the past year and think forward to the next.  The rabbi leading my congregation today asked: "Who is ready to leave 5776 behind and start 5777?!"  I found this question to be more complicated than it appeared.  Many people were eager to move forward from this past year, some were indifferent and others weren't interested in moving forward. It's a complicated question for sure and there is not a simple answer.  The rabbi asked more in jest than anything else but it got me thinking: was I ready for the next year?  I must say I'm excited to move on but satisfied with my past year.  I fulfilled a lot of…

The Girl in the Coffee Shop…Happy National Coffee Day!

National Coffee Day

Happy National Coffee Day! It seems we have a national day for just about everything now: burgers, mac 'n cheese, siblings, donuts (one of the better ones!), ice cream, cookies, and the list goes on and on.  I am convinced these "national days" were invented purely as Instagram holidays but I must say: National Coffee Day really does deserve its own day (my love for coffee can be found in this post).  I think most people will admit that coffee is an integral part of their morning.  Am I right? So in honor of National Coffee Day I have a list of some places offering specials! {Photos by Steph Jensen} Best National Coffee Day Deals Birch: For all you NYC people, Birch is offering free drip coffees from 7am to 10am.
