How to Wear Bras that are Meant to be Seen

bras that are meant to be seen

If you haven't noticed, bras are not just bras anymore...they are bras that are meant to be seen:  fashion pieces.  More and more brands are making bras not just to serve their basic function (support) but also to add a little something extra to an outfit.  I have taken this trend head on for the last couple of years as you can see in some of my other looks where my bra was a main component in the outfit.  More recently Boohoo sent me this adorable mesh bodysuit (another trend I have taken on with full force as well) and it's completely transparent.  So you have to have the right bra to wear with it to make sure it adds to the look.  I just so happen to work in the bra industry so I have…

Orange you Glad to See Me?

Orange you glad to see me?!  I hope so!  Since you're here reading MSL, I'm guessing that you read my 2017 Goals and Resolutions post, in which I so humbly suggest that one of your resolutions should be to read more MSL! So now that we're into the swing of 2017 (we are right?!) I'm sharing my first outfit post of the year!  If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me in this bright orange sweater.  With this freezing cold weather I couldn't have asked for a better winter piece.  There's also something really cathartic about wearing a bright color when it's absolutely freezing out -- it really brightens up your outfit and your mood! I found this sweater at my new favorite store: & Other Stories, which is actually a higher…

Re Your Holiday Wish List

your holiday wish list

  The holiday season is in full swing and as I noted in my last post -- my velvet crush is very real and it has been a staple of my holiday dressing.  Holidays are not all about parties and velvet dresses (well actually they are) but they are also about gifts and presents.  Let's be honest, everyone's always like "it's the season of giving" but aren’t you really more concerned with what you're going to receive this year (rather than give)? I know we've all received those gifts where we have to smile enthusiastically on the outside but on the inside we're all "what the what, does this person know me at all!?"  Case in point: all I have wanted for the holidays, essentially every year of my life, is every single episode…

High Neck Velvet Midi Dress and Black Friday Sales

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!  I am truly soaking up Thanksgiving this year as it's one of my only days off between now and New Year's Day...so here's to dreaming about 2017!  Since I returned from my Japan trip (I know post coming!) I really got thrown right back into my life in NYC (it is the city that never sleeps right?).  From work, to moving (yay!), to transitioning from fall to winter and then bam: the holidays are upon us.  As a result of all of this, I haven't had much time to post, but I'm hoping, as I start to acclimate to my new place and am not living out of boxes, I'll get back into my posting groove. Today, I’m sharing this ASOS velvet midi dress, which I received a slew of compliments on…

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"]
