Ready for the Weekend: Sequin Dress

Call me crazy but I’m trying to get as much use out of all of my pieces as possible….thus, the desire to carry sequins into the daytime! I know…but this Velvet sequin dress has all the hallmarks of a fabulous warm weather dress up, date night chicness, or daytime “I sparkle but it’s not intentional” […]

Leather: For Today, Fall & Forever

Make no mistake, I’m in love with leather (and navy blue). Both are classics but leather let’s you kick it up a notch – BAM!! And this dress is the perfect mix of ladylike, professional, and uh-oh-I’m-taking-it-there! The color makes it even more work-friendly… And for a mere $254 (size up one to two sizes), […]

Pretty, Petite, Perfect Dress!

Whitney Pozgay is slightly “vertically challenged” thus, has an appreciation for clothing that helps the more petite among us reach new heights! She collaborated with Anthropologie on a capsule collection, WHIT Two. Check it out here but my favorite piece is this embroidered urchin petite dress {$188}. This white dress is the perfect length for […]

Spring Dresses Inspired By Street Style

Giovanna Battaglia adds a scarf for panache but the sportiness of spring dresses is evident ~ and will look just as good with a pair of wedge booties as some gladiator flats. I’ve scooped this Topshop version in hopes of it becoming my new everyday-in-a-pinch dress for spring. While I’ll undoubtedly sport these with my […]

The Strapless Dress….For Now & Later

The strapless dress has new life ~ perfect for transitioning into spring with a pretty cropped cardigan but, also for Fall…since Stella McCartney, Dior and others all showed it going from day to night. Could it really be this easy? We already love dresses because they are readymade outfits but, to be on-trend at the […]

Leather is running rampant this season and to keep it sleek and feminine, the runways and concrete walkways are sporting dresses! I’ve combed the ‘net for some fabulous options that will accentuate your curves, create instant edginess, purrrr sexy, and still be wearable for girls night, a museum event, or even dinner with your sweetheart. […]

Singing A New Tune With This Tun-ic Dress

Singer/songwriter Mollie King of The Saturdays (a British girl group) was seen sporting this and I wanted to share. It’s not that she looks so fabulous or that she’s doing something you can’t ~ I like the look because it’s easy, casual, chic, understated, fun, feminine and versatile. Imagine this on a Saturday stroll thru […]

Peplum & A Stolen Post

I read lots of blogs everyday and last week I saw a post by Girl with Curves and feel in love with the peplum dress she sported – so here it is! This dress is the epitomy of pretty peplum ~ which means it’s totally feminine ~ and that it’s available through a size 18 […]

Midweek Style In A Jiffy

I want to look like this on any given Wednesday. This Szeki cap sleeve shirtdress ($118) is effortless, strong, bold, easy, uncomplicated, and would show off my new arms and legs (see my 30-day #BodyReboot). It can be worn as-is for a bit of funk {that’s me!} ~ or with a wide belt and flats for […]


I love the LBD but right now there’s so much color out there – – – one of my favorite online places, Dorothy Perkins, is featuring 10 fab dresses for $55 including a couple of LBDs and a bit more. My favorite is black and latte panel dress ~ peplums are very feminine, the latte […]
