Black Tie Optional

I can’t tell you guys how long I have wanted to a tuxedo dress. I first saw blogger Brooklyn Blonde wearing one and I nearly melted. She looked amazing. I quickly reminded myself that not everyone looks as good in certain things as others, and I certainly wouldn’t look as great in anything she wears, the tuxedo dress is a tough trend to pull off as it is… however! I spotted this one from Closet London and threw caution to the wind. Now it’s a part of Closet Rachel (see what I did there? hah!) and I love it! What do you guys think?

I love this dress because you can never have too many LBD’s and but after a while they all kinda look the same. Obvi, as I’ve already said, I’m pretty much in love with the tuxedo-style detailing. It’s Market Week at work (again) and I think I might have to throw this on for the occasion.

I threw the belt on to cinch the waist a little bit and add a bit of color but to be honest it doesn’t necessarily need it. The dress fits like a glove. It may run a tiny bit on the smaller side but not by much… I think going the next size up would be too much room. Just an FYI. :] Hope y’all had a great weekend! Stay warm!

Bundle Up with Sheinside

Winter happened in one weekend here in New Jersey. In two days we got dumped on with snow complete with high winds and bitter temperature, and then it was gone. Now it’s back to a nice 40-50 degree week. This cozy coat from Sheinside is perfect for these cool, but not frigid, days we’re experiencing.

When the coat itself is worn open and untied, it can be a bit overwhelming with the oversized collar. I liked to keep it tied to add shape to my waist and not get lost in all of the fabric.

I also love having a statement coat in my closet that isn’t fur. I love my fur coats, DUH, but you have to switch it up sometimes! The red is such a stunning color and I love the way it stands out against a snowy backdrop too! Sheinside has an amazing collection of coats at such amazing prices! I’m linking to some more of my favorite statement coats below!

Leather & A Lacey LBD

Welcome back and welcome to my second holiday look! I love a good LBD for really any occasion but they do make for a perfectly romantic and festive look for the holidays when styled the right way.

I really love the lace detail of this dress, the high neckline, and the keyhole cutouts all the way up the back. It’s a refreshing update on the typical LBD I’m usually wearing. Also worth mentioning, I may look horribly underdressed weather wise for living in New Jersey and it being December and all, but I promise you we are having a crazy mild winter and I was not cold at all without a jacket on in these, or any of the other posts. I’ve been really really enjoying this warm December we’ve been having but it makes the impending doom that is actual winter that much worse, because unfortunately, I know it is coming eventually.

Friday Fav!

Happy Friday, friends! Can you believe it’s the last weekend in October already? Where the hell does the time go? It baffles me! ANYWAY. Let’s get into my favorite look this week.

How gorgeous does she look!? I am a huge fan of little lacy black dresses. Emily VanCamp is obvi the star of Revenge. Which… I don’t watch.. but everyone says I should, hah. I am an EVC fan from Everwood, though! Anyway – back to her outfit. I LOVE the little black dress with the lace detailing and the peplum! Her shoes are hott too. I dig the simple hair, smokey eye makeup, and the little pop of color with her clutch. She looks gorge, I love it! What do you guys think?

Hope everyone has a wonderful Halloween celebration this weekend! Can’t wait to see your costumes! Kisses.
