When you think of winter fashion, what comes to mind? Most people think, sweater weather. But, just because it’s cold out doesn’t mean you need to stick to a wardrobe of sweaters, leggings and boots. One of my favorite things about fashion is being able to transition pieces from season to season. The skater dress might seem like an unlikely option for cold weather attire but with some careful styling and layering, it’s a great transitional piece.
The weather in Upstate New York during the Winter can be brutal and I am no fan of being cold. Finding a way to stay warm and look cute while doing so, can be a struggle. Since they don’t make heated underwear (that I know of) and insulated snowsuits aren’t exactly fashion forward, I have decided to indulge in cozy sweaters that can transition from Fall to Winter. If you can only invest in one item this season, let it be this super cozy, oversized sweater dress from TOBI, that has, no doubt, become my newest obsession.
We have all heard of the little black dress or LBD, that is an essential in every woman's wardrobe, but have you heard of the little red dress (LRD)? The LRD is just as important; after all, Audrey Hepburn did say, "There is a shade of red for every woman."
Did you know that colors carry a lot of emotions?
According to color meanings dot com ,"When you want to make a statement and stand out in a crowd, red should definitely be your first pick. You are sure to be a show stopper in something like this red hot lace cocktail dress.", people tend to gamble and take risks more under red lights? It is no wonder this is the predominant color choice in casino atmospheres. If you are drawn to red clothing colors, then it indicates extroversion, passion, energy, and a personality type that is driven to live fully. People who like red clothes also tend to be aggressive, energetic, and quick in releasing their emotions. Red clothing colors indicate a person who is quick in judging people and expressing their opinions. When going for a job interview, it is best to stay away from this color as it can convey the wrong message to the interviewer. But If you are looking to make a statement and stand out in a crowd, then red should definitely be your first pick. You are sure to be a show stopper in something like this red hot lace cocktail dress.
Fly away with me....I am wearing a red hot lace cocktail dress paired with gold lace-up heals from Aldo Shoes and accessorized with Ralph Lauren Diamond earrings. This dress is perfect for a holiday party, special occasion, a sexy date night or night out with your girls. This dress pairs perfectly with your favorite black blazer for a more casual look. You can also try a fur shrug for a more sophisticated look for that evening out. With the holidays around the corner, you should start shopping for your LRD now!

Spring is here, you’re ready to ditch your winter coat and bust out the pastels. One problem, April weather can be so unpredictable, especially in upstate New York. This outfit is perfect for one of those chilly days where the sun isn’t shining. I love this Alexxa sweater from Glamour and Glow in mustard. It’s super soft and has a perfect relaxed fit. I layered it over a plaid button down and paired it with my favorite pair of dark denim skinny jeans. And, I completed the look with these fabulous burgundy over-the-knee boots from Charlotte Russe. These boots have quickly become my favorite. They add a pop of color and can easily be worn with jeans, leggings, a skirt or dress.
