Menswear: The White Button-down

Classic Menswear White Button Down

My little sister called me the other day, asking me what in the heck she was supposed to wear.  Oh the bitter irony of her abundant-bosom-that-won’t-fit-into-anything complaining to my training-bra-cha-chas!  She wants to know how to contain them, and I just want to know where to get a pair of my own.  Back to the […]

White Denim Jacket: Timeless or Trend

Accordian_Pleat_dress_atjollys_white_denim_jacket_prettypolishedperfect dot com-10

A friend recently asked my opinion on a white/ecru jacket.  My advice was tough, at best.  I bought this white denim jacket last spring, and held on to it for this spring – not entirely sure if I would ever wear it again.  White denim jackets (or white jackets in any textile for that matter) […]

ULTA Beauty + a pretty little giveaway

ULTA_Beauty_event

ULTA Beauty was in town for a local grand opening, and we (Sandy, Meg and I) got double the fun after seeing them at KCFW and being invited to a media preview party (let’s call it what it is, shall we? lol!)  We headed straight to The Salon (you can read more about their services here) to […]

Isaac Mizrahi + Kleenex Style Studio

kleenex_style_isaac_mizrahi

Back in the day, fashion was a little bit different.  There were no tents at Bryant Park.  Chain stores didn’t have “previews” or showings.  Designers hosted their shows in amazing locations, and even the staging itself sometimes upstaged the collection.  The next morning, local papers would run the reviews and designers woke up putting it […]

Park Place

Alysa Rene Boutique Park Place

Let’s talk about Park Place for a minute.  I’ve often met my girlfriends at Ingredient for quick lunches, attended a few events at the ALoft Hotel, and ice skated the shopping center’s rink; what I have not done is actually shopped there.  I recently had the opportunity to be shown some of the shopping found […]

Overalls: Trend or Timeless

BDG_Denim_overall_urban_outfitters_prettypolishedperfect_2

I believe I may be eating my words right now; I’m 100% positive I’ve said no one should wear overalls, ever.  Unless you happen to be a toddler, toddling around with a toy in hand, I’ve always thought overalls were a trend to avoid.  Drive to Omaha for the Omaha Fashion Week, forget your very […]

Omaha Fashion Week

Margie Trembley, milliner

At the beginning of March, the Mr and I took the boys to Omaha, NE for a quick getaway; actually I went for Omaha Fashion Week, and dragged them all along with me (still haven’t heard any complaints…..)  This was my first time at OFW, and it was…..a great experience.  Everything ran smoothly (of course […]

The Jumpsuit: Trend or Timeless

The jumpsuit has been around for a season or two; is it a fad, a trend or a timeless classic? Like all wardrobe staples, it depends on the cut. A flowy, wide leg jumpsuit in black (under $25!!)? Classic. Timeless. Wear it. Or don’t.    Forever 21 Blue Jumpsuit (similar here and here) Old Navy White Denim […]
