Pretty Please

Stores are starting to push their summer sale merchandise aside to allow room for a smattering of new fall-ish merchandise. I couldn’t be more excited after a ho-hum spring/summer fashion season for new exciting fall clothing. One of my favorite stores, White House Black Market, has just introduced their first hit of fall and I am seriously in love with this very pretty, very elegant dress.

I am staunchly in the camp that believes fashion should, first and foremost, be pretty and flattering to the wearer. This dress is the epitome of pretty and it’s cinched in waist, swingy skirt and ruffled collar will render every wearer seriously elegant. I am hoping that this dress is the start of many beautiful things to wear now and later as fall approaches. I am over the mannish, overly big and edgy looks that dominated summer wear, bring on the pretty! Ruffle Chemise available at www.whitehouseblackmarket.com.

Five For Five: White House Black Market

Stores are filling, fast and furious, with spring merchandise. Sunny, warmer days are ahead, as are light and airy clothes. I have taken some of the headache out of shopping and plan to present to you five days, five stores and five must haves from each of my favorite stores. Today I am kicking it off with five must haves from White House Black Market, they always have a modern yet timeless selection of clothes as well as the best black and white pants you will ever find.

Without further ado, my five must haves all available on www.whitehouseblackmarket.com:

This striped cardigan is super soft and lightweight, perfect for spring’s unpredictable weather as well as over-air conditioned buildings in the summer. It can be worn with everything in your closet and the stripes are very on trend this season. It is also the perfect piece to travel with, providing a light layer that’s lightweight enough not to weigh your bags down. Wear it open and loose, tied at the waist or wrapped around and tied behind.

This silk safari tunic blouse in buttery khaki is a lightweight piece that is super flattering on and looks great paired with skinny jeans or capris in dark denim or white and embellished gladiator sandals.

Skinny, cropped white jeans just scream Jackie O on a yacht style and are a major must have. Easy to wear with loose tunics and a multitude of shoes from heels, to flats to flip flops. Dress them up or dress them down.

Let’s just admit it, we all have “fat” days and this diamond print halter tunic is perfect for fat days or pretty much any day. It is loose and comfortable while still being stylish and flattering. Wear it alone on hot days or layer over leggings with a long cardigan for cool days. It doesn’t get any easier.

Everyone needs a great dress that can be an easy go-to for weddings and parties but this dress can also be worn to work. This halter sheath dress is chic enough to keep pace with with other cocktail dresses but structured enough to wear to work paired with a cardigan or jacket.

Instant Love

I am sure you have all been there before, you walk into a store and instantly fall in love with a gorgeous pair of shoes or stylish bag or stunning dress. It is like you are pulled toward that item and once you have it clutched in your hands or slipped around your shoulders you know that it is coming home with you wrapped in crisp tissue paper nestled in a shiny shopping bag.

I can say that that very thing happened to me yesterday at my local White House Black Market store. Of course it wasn’t just one item it was two such items, an amazing coat and pair of heels.

I saw the coat first, black satin knee length coat with ruffles and roses that make it stunningly elegant and once I slipped it one I knew it was going home with me. It’s waist cinching fit is extremely flattering and it can be worn as a coat over a dress or worn as a jacket over a tank and pair of skinny pants. I also plan on wearing it with skinny jeans and heels for dinner dates. It is the perfect piece to wear for all your holiday events.

While walking around the store in the coat I saw a gorgeous pair or red rose printed platform heels that will add a kick of color and style to any outfit or dress. The rose print gives them visual interest and refinement while still adding color. They are also pretty comfortable. Both items available at www.whitehouseblackmarket.com.

Cocktails Anyone?

It is hard to imagine that fall and holiday parties are just around the corner and with that comes the need for a gorgeous cocktail dress. I always seem to spend way too much money on cocktail dresses, many of which I only wear once, but I have found a great go-to store with an amazing selection of gorgeous cocktail dresses all year long. Check out the selection of dresses at your nearest White House Black Market store or online at www.whitehouseblackmarket.com. Their cocktail dresses are classic yet on-trend, elegant and well-fitting as well as come in a wide range of sizes and styles to fit all body types. Plus, they are all wonderful quality at a great price.

This dress is stunning on and really shows off your waist and curves, perfect for a wedding or work party.

This dress is perfect if you have a small bust and straight figure or small bust with a little hip.

These two strapless dresses are perfect for bustier and curvier girls, the smooth bodice tops hold you in while the ruching and side draping hides tummies and hips.

This rosette dress looks like it belongs on the red carpet and looks like something Michelle Obama would wear. The rosette detailing is perfect for showing off toned arms and your neck and shoulders.

This striped tulle dress looks incredible on because the criss-cross ribbon detail cinches in the waist giving anyone an hour-glass figure. The twirl skirt is perfect for a night of dancing.
