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…

Winter Ready

Winter Ready

New York City was very cold this past week and we got our first proper snowfall on Friday night, which means just one thing: Winter is here!  Yep, remember Winter?  She came late last year, but this year she's right on time and I for one am making myself winter ready.  An oversized scarf, like this plaid one from Banana Republic, is one of the many pieces that is keeping me warm this season.  (Also see booties, large coat, tights, and gloves!)  This particular scarf is rather large and allows you to wrap it around your neck multiple times -- adding some extra layers. I've also been looking around for another pair of booties to wear everyday (I am eyeing these Steve Madden ones), the ones I'm wearing in this look are from Reiss…

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…

Velvet Crush

Velvet Crush

I have a crush.  You may have noticed.  Yes, I have a crush on Velvet.  Luscious Velvet.  You've seen Velvet on my Instagram, in a previous blog post and now here again.  Velvet does not disappoint!  I think the holidays could have something to do with it – since Velvet brings such richness and warmth to every look.  And darnit! Velvet is sexy. Ok, I'll stop pretending Velvet is a person (if only!).  No, Velvet is the fabulous fabric that I have been donning myself in all holiday season.  There are so many amazing velvet pieces for your holiday dressing, there's no reason you shouldn't also have a crush on Velvet. This low cut velvet dress was the perfect piece to shoot in Chinatown.  Ever since I got back from Japan, I have been wanting to…
