Get Dressy.

I love dresses like this. A classic color palette + cut, with some sass in the form of an open back and a faux leather collar. All I needed to do to complete the outfit was throw on a pair of shoes– nude strappy sandals with a snakeskin platform did the trick. Beyond easy, yet the pay-off ranked up a few style points. ...more

Green Swing + Bumble and bumble.

This dress is seven years old. No joke.I got it in London while on an unforgettable holiday with my best friend. We had just graduated college and were ready to take on the world– and Topshop, of course. Oxford Circus, represent....more

Trying to get things together

It’s the social season…the one that comes once every twenty years.Easter is coming, then graduations and weddings.

Neon Gypsy.

Yo, check the location change. This post is coming to you from my back patio. (Best enjoy this end-of-summer weather while we can, no?)I have been lusting after this dress for ages and ages– how good are the neon pink stripes against the cool beige? (This dress is last-season JCrew, and I finally found it in my size on eBay, thank you fashion gods!) I went light on the jewelry– Midwest humidity and all– and wore some summery color block sandals to finish the look. Happy first week of September!...more

It’s just so fun, and works with almost everything.Case in point: I’ve linked up with a few of my blogging pals to showcase different ways of styling the Alaqua bib. How we roll:...more

Printed Skater Dress + Green Blazer.

I’m in love with this dress. Flouncy, lightweight, great neutral pattern, flattering fit– I could go on and on. The strappy nature + cutout detail means a blazer is necessary to make it office-friendly, so I grabbed a bright green version. Who says you can’t mix brights + patterns? Not me....more

Party Animal

Bonjour Frock Stars. I’m going to keep it short and sweet this week.  Basically, I love animal prints (of any kind).  I think that animal prints have the ability to be made appropriate for any occasion, and can flatter any body type.  However, I’m not talking about your typical prints (leopard, zebra, giraffe), I’m talkin silhouettes… Like birds, cats, horses, and doggies (especially pugs… they’re my fave).  Remember, everything I’ve found is $50 and under, so no matter what your budget is, you can still be fierce.  This spring, party like an animal hunty....more
