A New USEFUL How-To book

I'm not the biggest fan of serious how-to-dress books, they become outdated very quickly and are often un-relatable for most people. That said, I got an advanced copy of Nina Garcia's new book "Look Book: What to Wear for Every Occasion" and I have to say, it's pretty great. It's a fun read, with gorgeous illustrations by Ruben Toledo, and the advice is general enough to work for everyone, while specific enough for each occasion she lists, that it is truly helpful.

I think this would be a fantastic gift for a new graduate, someone who has just moved to a new place, started a new job or just a friend who asks you advice all the time!

Happy Reading!

The Perfect Flat for Fall

Somehow life has gotten in the way of blogging yet again, but I haven't forgotten and I'm always looking around for great pieces that need to be posted. This time it's the perfect flat shoe for fall -

Via Spiga Women's Heath Flat

It has the perfect shape, and I love the rivets all around it and across the toe. It also comes in a fantastic silver which might even be better than the black. None of my shoes get more wear than my metallic flats...treat them like a neutral and wear with everything!

Happy Shopping!

Afternoon Wedding Dresses and More...

Big sale at Yoox these days, a great source for discount designer clothes, and more interesting pieces than sites like Bluefly.

How cute is this one -

It's a little formal, perfect for an afternoon wedding. There are other shapes in a similar fabric, this one is stunning -

That would work for a more formal evening event as well.

And this more casual Michael Kors dress -

I love the retro shape of this dress, and it comes in a bright red or dark blue as well. It's a $500 dress marked down to under $200, sounds great to me!

Yoox also has a ton of Superfine denim for $70-$80, a really good deal. Check out these adorable capris -

If none of the above strikes your fancy, check out the pages and pages of other amazing merchandise -

Summer Dresses Under $100

Hard to believe you can still get an adorable little dress for under $100, but you can. Really.

BCBGeneration Apparel Ruffle Dress

A cute and not-at-all-trashy sequined dress for under $100? Yes indeed -

Aryn K. Sequin Detail Dress

This dress is absolutely ADORABLE! If you live somewhere that gets hot (i.e not Northern California) and you go out a lot, it's a no-brainer. The shape is adorable, the pattern and colors are so much fun and it's $60. Yup, you read that right...

Jack by BB Dakota Ivy Dress in Blue

This little white dress is so sweet -

Who can resist a red like this?

Ella Moss for Summer

The past few seasons of Ella Moss have been a little disappointing, but something has changed now - there are so many great looking pieces my head is spinning!

I LOVE the color and shape of this dress -

Ella Moss Trump Deep V Cinched Waist Dress

It looks like the perfect hot weather, throw-on-everyday kind of dress.

And how cute would this top look with shorts, flat sandals and some fun earrings for your next day in the park -

Ella Moss Willow Printed Chiffon Top

I like a floaty top on a warm day, plus you can go ahead and eat that second hot dog and still feel comfortable! Plus, the top is on sale.

There are many more where these came from, including some very cute chambray tops...
