THE FINE PRINT

TED BAKER Nelum maxi dress,

Though normally, my motto for weekend dressing is comfy and simple, I must admit, every once in while I really enjoy trading in my weekend uniform for something a bit more glamorous, getting my hair and make up done and spending an evening somewhere fabulous... Luckily, last Saturday was exactly such an occasion. One of my good friends got married and since the ceremony was really formal, I got to dress up and wear what is probably my favorite dress of all time.

If I had to choose one blazer, one shirt and one pair of skinnies to wear for the rest of my life, the ones I'm wearing in today's post would be it! Incidentally, the way they found their way into my closet  is a direct result of my new shopping philosophy. You see, about two weeks ago, I decided that it was time to shape up my wardrobe, so I rid my closet of all the maybes, put a stop to impulse purchases, which rarely work out for me, and decided to approach new purchases with caution and serious consideration. Now, what I mean by caution and consideration is the following:

CAPULET Spanish Shoulderless mini dress

As you may have noticed I've been on a bit of a dress binge lately and the pretty shoulderless number I'm sporting in today's post is my latest find. Though my obsession with dresses ( few other favorites here & here ) is nothing new, what I have been doing differently lately is pairing feminine, flirty frocks with chunkier heels for a slightly more modern, not to mention much more comfortable feel and look. Take the studded perfection from Laurence Dacade I am wearing in today's post for example, comfortable enough to wear all day long, I just love the way they add a certain ease and edge to the whole ensemble! Not to mention the fact that unlike a pair of stilettos ( which I think would have looked great for night), they definitely make this look more appropriate for day. 

What do you guys think? How do you feel about chunky heels? 


BLOWN AWAY

NANETTE LEPORE Blown Away dress

The first time I met this dress was a little less than a year ago at Nanette Lepore runway show during New York Fashion Week. I spotted it as it was floating down the runway and immediately knew we were destined to be together. I am, as you may know, particularly fond of pieces that evoke a certain feeling and something about this dress just oozed happiness.

IRO Ashville leather jacket in coral pink, Coral leather jacket

I've been a busy little bee these past few weeks working on expanding my collection of old and new favorites and this outfit is basically an accumulation of my efforts. I don't think I need to tell you how I feel about leather jackets. Studded, perforated, printed and brightly colored, I want them all! And this coral perfection from IRO is my newest and brightest favorite:) The color alone would have been enough to make me want to add it to my collection, but the fact that I am particularly partial to moto leather jackets, made it that much more irresistible!

If you read my blog on regular basis, you know skincare is a bit of an obsession for me. Normally, I am very good about taking care of my skin. I eat well, I exercise, I try to get plenty of sleep and use good skincare products. Yet, no matter how diligent I am about taking care of my skin,  the damaging effects of certain environmental assaults such as sun exposure, pollution and stress are simply beyond my control.
