Ever since I got my ears re-pierced ( I now have two on one side and three on the other), I have loved playing around and mixing and matching with different studs. My usual go-to is Bauble Bar for fashion forward and wallet friendly pieces, so when I got hold of their Play By Ear Gift Set I was over the moon. Their gift box is full of so many various styles you can’t help but be inspired to mix and match and wear as many as you can. That said, I thought I would give it a whirl and do quick little earring remix for you guys!
Last week I teamed up with Gather & Gown, a new e-commerce bridal boutique, to style and remix a couple of their bridesmaids dresses. I think it’s so fun to take an item of clothing, in this case, a fancy party dress, and give it a completely different personality. I started with the dress shown above, which when worn traditionally as a bridesmaid dress, would look very elegant with silver strappy heels and a statement necklace. But instead I wanted to make it look a bit more edgy, so I slipped on a fitted black moto jacket and grabbed a pair of sparkly heels to give the look a bit of sass.
All the pretty dresses. So many gorgeous styles and colors to choose from!
Founders Michael Shettel and Vincent Piccione launch their site in January 2015 and will offer beautifully tailored contemporary dresses for the wedding day and beyond, all for under $200 plus free shipping and free returns. The duo also wants their site to help girlfriends easily shop collaboratively together online no matter where they live or the distance between them.
The team took a handful of pictures on my iPhone while I was on set, so I thought it would be fun to share some behind the scenes photos of me getting ready, on camera with my gorgeous model (video to come soon!) and with one of the founders and designers, Michael Shettel. Seeing that I’m only 5’4, I had to stand on an apple box the whole time! Thanks, Gather & Gown for a great shoot. We shot some great footage and I can’t wait to share the final video with you all! xo
Happy Tuesday! I know it’s not quite December, but I’ve got holiday parties on the brain, so I decided to head on over to ASOS and browse their dresses. There were so many gems, but after scouring page after page, I narrowed down my favorites to these nine styles. If any of these strike your fancy, you can shop them below! xo
I wore this sweater to the Banana Republic 2015 Spring Preview yesterday and didn’t even need a jacket, it was that warm. It’s the kind of piece that I love because it’s so cozy and fuzzy but also makes me laugh because of it’s furriness, and ability to make me look like I’m wearing shoulder pads even though I’m not. I picked it up at Zara in the kids section for about $40 and decided to give it a whirl. What do you guys think? Yay or nay?
Also, I am so over the moon about my wavy hair. TRESemmé did the hair for the preview so they were kind enough to send over one of their stylists (thank you Johanna!) to give my hair a morning mini makeover before I headed to the presentation. I am hoping the waves last me at least a few days!
