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

   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…

Have you Stocked up on the Best Fall Colors?

Best Fall Colors

Fall is here and that means warm autumnal colors are in!  I have some exciting plans for travel coming up this fall...post on that soon, but in the meantime I am working on updating my wardrobe for this transitional season and recommending the best fall colors. Fall is a great season to play with those rich colors.  There are days when it can be warm and other times when there is a chill in the air.  For these kinds of sporadically warm and cold days I prefer to mix and match my summer and fall pieces, as I have done below.  I combined a summer skirt with an olive green top.  The skirt is cream so it works very well with fall colors.  I was lucky, the day I wore this look it happened to…

Wanna Brunch with J. Lo?

Brunch Guide NYC

You may be thinking: what do brunch and J. Lo have in common?  Right.  Well, normally I wouldn't know, but it just so happens that I was out brunching myself last weekend (as I do) at Laconda Verde and spotted (with my quick celebrity eye: seriously I have a gift for spotting celebrities) Ryan Seacrest at a two top.  Initially, I was pretty excited just to see Ryan Seacrest and then as I looked more closely I noticed that he was sitting across from a top knot wearing brunette woman.  Now there is only one diva who slays a top-knot bun like no other: yes, it was indeed J. Lo.  She was dressed exactly as you would think: bodycon dress, hair slicked into a top knot bun and looking flawless.  I was giddy.  Ryan…

NYFW (and Life?!) Survival Guide

NYFW

Surviving NYFW is a tricky task! So, every year, I develop a new plan of attack. In this plan, I include every tip, trick, and tool I might need to hop from show-to-show and party-to-party like a boss. (Wearing: Lovers and Friends Dress, See by Chloe shoes -- since we're moving into fall try these booties, Marc by Marc Jacobs purse.) Flats I’m a stiletto gal, but I always carry a pair of sandals or flats in my purse. They are key for making it through the day without having to amputate a foot! Luckily, fancier flat sandals and flatforms are trending this year, which means one can be fashionable and comfortable (gasp!) at the same time. However, since it’s the best time of the year to show off that expensive pair of Louboutins I’ve never worn—and…
