Little Red Dress

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!

Don’t Retire Your Sweaters or Boots Just Yet….

 

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.

The Perfect Winter Accessory

The cold weather of winter months make it a challenge to be cute and stylish. But scarves, which have become a must- have accessory for any season, combine warmth and style. This cold weather street style is effortlessly casual and chic. In this look I am wearing  dark skinny denim, chestnut peep toed booties and an over-sized, off the shoulder, olive colored, sweater. Capping off this ensemble with a blanket scarf from Zara, which pulls it all together.  You will love this scarf. It is super soft and cozy with vibrant colors in a plaid pattern to spice up the other earth tone colors. It’s perfect for fall and winter.

 

 

 

A New York State of Mind

 

I live in a small town roughly three and a half hours from New York City. My best friend lives on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, so I find myself spending a lot of time there. I find that there is something about the energy of the city that makes me feel more alive. It’s almost as if there are no rules, and you can dream as big as the five boroughs combined. When it comes to NYC style fashion, anything goes. NYC is a place where trends are made, rules are broken, and your clothing can represent your style, personality, or just simply your mood on any particular day.

This look has a very casual feel, perfect for an average Saturday afternoon meandering in the city.  I am wearing a Denim and Supply Tee by Ralph Lauren.  It’s super soft to touch and the boyfriend fit is very comfortable. Leggings were a simple choice and can be used to pull off a variety of looks. Camel peep toed booties are the perfect shoes to pull this look together and I added a pop of color with this pink, 27 inch, Soft Ricky bag from the Ralph Lauren Collection. Shop Now
