Tag "Forever 21"


For those of you just joining us, here’s a quick recap of the collaboration I am working on with Forever 21. I was recently asked to create three looks that illustrate different parts of my day to day, so I decided to pinpoint the main aspects of my work life. The first look, which you can see here, is what I would wear to a professional meeting in midtown. The second outfit, shown in this post, is a perfect example of what I wear when working as a personal stylist, which is another part of my profession in fashion. When I’m consulting women and their wardrobes, or out shopping with them, I like to be comfortable in what I’m wearing. There can be a lot of walking and schleping clothing, which in the summer months, when it’s so hot in New York,  I love to wear loose fitting clothing, so a flowy dress like this one becomes the perfect uniform for me.

Forever 21: Dress / Necklace

I’ve been a fan of Forever 21 for over ten years now and have watched it grow and change from a place where I only bought my “going out” clothes to now what is a multifaceted store that offers everything from lingerie to pencil skirts and more. I have learned to shop their various stores, no matter how big or small, and spot and pick out really cute things that otherwise might have been overlooked. So when Forever 21 asked me to create three looks that illustrate parts of my everyday life, I was of course up for the challenge. I headed to the gigantic four-level store in Times Square and got to work. I thought about what the main aspects of my work life are and decided to start with what I would wear to a professional meeting in midtown. I knew I wanted to feel polished and put together so I oped for a really great pencil skirt as my starting point and went from there.


I picked a black and gold statement necklace to add a bit of boldness to this basic button down and to draw out the darker details in the skirt.


I kept the bag and shoes a neutral color to bring more attention to the bold, printed skirt.



This classic blue button down is very versatile and I love that I can dress it up for a meeting and then later on in the day, pair it with white jeans and sandals for a more casual look.

Style Tip: I realize that for those of you who work in a more traditional work environment, a brightly patterned skirt and open toed shoes may not be appropriate. If that is the case, or if this much print feels a little scary, I would suggest simply swapping out the skirt for a deep navy blue pencil skirt, and making your shoes the focal point. Try a pair of pointy-toed bold pumps in a zippy color like citron or coral as your statement piece.

crazy for layout - floral jeans
1. Paige Verdugo Ankle  in Flea Market Floral / 2. J.Crew Liberty Toothpick Jean in Tresco Floral / 3. Forever 21 Rose Print Skinny Jeans / 4.Gap 1969 Printed Legging Skimmer Jeans / 5. Hudson Krista Super Skinny Jeans (although not quite a traditional floral print, the pattern gave off more of an abstract flowery feel, which I thought was fresh and fun)
Floral denim has been around for a bit now, but it hasn’t seemed to go anywhere, which is fine by me. I love a good bold, flowery print and when paired with either a basic white v-neck or classic chambray button down, it’s the perfect go-to outfit for a sunny spring day.

Lately I’m finding that I’m very into shirts and sweatshirts with cheeky words or sayings on them. Case in point – this particular sweater, which caught my eye while browsing online at F21 last week. I think there is something about the contrast of the heather gray and cherry-orange red together that I love, or maybe it’s the bold, uppercase lettering that seems to be yelling “RELAX!” to anyone walking by. Whatever it might be, I still dig it. xo

This is definitely an edgier look than what I usually post, (quite the opposite of yesterday’s post!) but what’s the point of fashion if you can’t have a little ( or a lot) of fun with it, right? :) Hope your Wednesday is off to a great start! xo

I haven’t worn this whimsical skirt since this post back in 2011, but thanks to Helena who spotted this adorable version at an Anthropologie in Palm Beach, I was reminded of how much I love my own tulle skirt I bought at H&M years ago. I had recently sent it home to live at my parent’s house since I didn’t seem to be wearing it much, but after pulling it out from way back in the closet, I happily styled it up and had my very own Carrie Bradshaw moment. xo
