The Dress It’s been over 40 years since Diane Von Furstenberg invented the infamous wrap dress.  It’s no wonder why it’s still as popular as ever. I believe that this style dress will compliment any body type.  This classic polka dot wrap dress is a timeless print and style.  I found this at DressUp Boutique for less than $50!  If you’re looking for special occasion outfit, or just wanting to spice up your wardrobe for…

    If you’re hosting a girls night, bridal shower, cocktail party, or perhaps it’s a Thursday night and you need no reason to be fancy (isn’t  that why you’re here?), this champagne punch is the perfect summer libation. Enter our guest stars, Madeline and Nikki.  Earlier this month we were all in Savannah for a wedding and I invited them to stop by our cozy little airbnb apartment for some pre-wedding cocktails.  I couldn’t…

  Summer is the season of parties, festivals, and barbequeing.  Sometimes it’s hard to find the perfect dress that can be re-worn for multiple occasions.  These long maxi dresses are effortless (although they will not look that way) and can be worn just about everywhere.  After all, in the south we wear maxi dresses to even the most casual low country boil… I’ve rounded up some of my favorite floral prints below.  These dresses can…

Are you all over the place when it’s time to shop for clothing?  Here are a few thoughts to help you define your style and curate a closet that’s all YOU… Your Brand It’s who you are and what you’re known for.  You can read books and articles all day long about developing your brand personally, professionally, etc, but we are talking fashion on this blog.  What are you known for wearing?  When you think…

Looking for a dress to wear to a wedding, date night or cocktail party this spring?  I am loving the dark moody blooms you will find on an array of prints this year.  “Florals? For spring? Ground-breaking.”  Comment below if you know what book/movie character said that…  I do like to switch it up a little bit though, while sticking with a classic theme.  Enter: dark floral prints. If you’re not all about pastels and…

  If you search “birthday party ideas” on Pinterest, it will no doubtingly yield thousands of pins of children’s themed birthday parties.  But what if you’re planning a birthday party for an adult, or (gasp!) yourself?  I think that adult parties should be equally as celebrated.  After all, we definitely appreciate them more. My birthday was last week.  I turned 34 (I know, I know, unbelievable, right?).  Planning a party, or one for yourself for…

Yellow is certainly on trend this spring/summer season and this feminine little number by Kate Spade NY is a nice reprieve from the winter blacks that I was wearing literally yesterday.  That being said, don’t expect to stop seeing black on my feed.  Actually, dark florals are also on trend this season.  I will share more on that later… Easter is just a few days away (do you have a dress?), and weekends are sure…

What better to wear with an all black ensemble than a bright red classic peacoat?  I think that an all black look, head to toe, is uber chic and gives off that edgy, yet still feminine vibe.  This slightly off the shoulder sweater is fuzzy and warm, perfect for cold winter days, like this one at New York Fashion Week in February.  Over-the-knee boots paired with a mini-skirt, not only take this look to the…

Looking for the perfect coat to wear with the quintessential little black dress?  How about a fur?  The one I am wearing here is in fact a vintage mink, but faux furs popped up in showrooms everywhere this winter. Before you get your panties in a wad over this coat, read the back story here. (Also, I don’t care.) As we all know, fashion does not always equal function.  However, I spent a lot of…

Day 2 at New York Fashion Week was a cold one.  If you’re looking for how to wear a little black dress in winter, I have you covered… I wore this dress by Hunter Bell.  I love the high collar, mid calf length, and fluttery shoulders.  I actually rented this dress from Rent the Runway, but I wish that I owned it.  I have a pro membership with Rent the Runway, which allows me to…

Wow, I have been on the road a lot this month, but obviously the highlight was New York Fashion Week!  I’ll be sharing what I wore over the next week or so, so stay tuned for a variety of looks… We left bright and early on Thursday morning and headed to NYC, where we stayed at ROW NYC, in Times Square.  I highly recommend this hotel, not only because of its fabulous accommodations, but the…

All about my hair – who, what, where, for this “icy blonde lob”.  People approach me in Atlanta all. the. time. and ask me where I get my hair done, what color it is, etc…  Well, here ya go. Enter: Ivy from Lumière Salon de Beauté in Alpharetta, GA.  I love this salon and the wonderful ladies that work there.  Ivy is a “creative stylist” with 8 years industry experience specializing in blondes, extensions, and trendy textured…

Happy first of December! Time to decorate for the holidays, send out cards, plan/attend parties, buy/wrap gifts, watch movies, eat an entire roll of Tollhouse cookie dough… the list goes on.  But let’s talk about gifting… I for one, think that homemade gifts are extra special.  Some people are difficult to buy for, and I have to believe that someone one would appreciate a homemade gift far more than something that was picked up at…

Are you one of those people who rotate their wardrobe based on season?  It’s smart, allows for more space, and you most likely won’t be using that angora sweater in Summer, right?  It does make sense but I do not follow this practice.  Carrie Bradshaw said it best when referring to her wardrobe, “I like my money right where I can see it… hanging in my closet”.  Me too!  And now, thanks to Spanx Arm…

On our way out of NY, we stopped at Grand Central Station.  Grand Central is showcased in more movies that you can imagine, everything from romance to horror.  This New York icon is more than a train station, it is also a shopping and dining destination.  I love train stations and this is the mother of all.  Is it the history?  The hustle and bustle of people coming and going?  Or simply the grandeur that…

New York Fashion Week was ah-mazing.  There’s something about the city that makes me feel at home, although I’ve lived in Atlanta my entire life.  The hustle and bustle and rooftops and coffee shops…  I can wear a cocktail dress and stilletos to Central Park, and I never feel overdressed. We made it to three shows hosted by FGNYFW.  The first: Pelush, by Anna Tagliabue- a “reFAUXlution” against furs in the fashion industry.  Although I…

Santorini I can check this one off the bucket list…  Exceeding all dreamy, picture perfect expectations, Santorini’s beauty is simply breathtaking.  Known for it’s blue-domed churches, whitewashed buildings, and steep and winding stairs that ascend from the Aegean Sea, it is exactly how you imagine it to be, and more.  Bright pink blooms pop against what seems to be a blue and white mirage. We stayed at On the Rocks boutique hotel in Imerovigli.  Our…

It stays pretty hot for a while in Georgia, but Fall is here regardless.  We’re officially past Labor Day and on to football season, pumpkin spice season, and New York Fashion Week!  Vogue, Elle, and the “important” fashion resources have released their September issues, and later this week New York City will be transformed into a fashion mecca.  This is the stuff that dreams are made of and this D-List blogger is on her way,…

I was not always a fan of Rosé, but it’s dramatically grown in popularity over the past few years and now it’s more of a #basic Summer beverage that anything.  Sometimes overly sweet for my taste, but then when you find that perfectly balanced, sparkling pink libation, it’s perfect for toasting to a beautiful Summer night. Here I am doing just that, while wearing one of my absolute favorite finds this Summer… An off the shoulder…

I like to have a go-to Summer jacket for evenings out and this light satin bomber from Fab’rik boutique is just perfect.  The print is a pretty, Summery floral on white, with a sparkly gold striped trim.  Coupled with glittery, gold striped espadrilles, this is the kind of look that can take you from a casual day of shopping (at Paris on Ponce), to dinner without skipping a beat. Paris on Ponce is a quirky…
