This dress reminds me of one of my favorite fashion moments in movie history… the polo scene in Pretty Woman, when Julia Roberts is wearing that brown and white polka-dot dress, cinched with a belt, and a straw hat. And, of course, I get confused for Julia Roberts all.the.time in my dreams. Now all I need is a silver fox/billionaire to woo me and take me to polo matches… What are some of your favorite fashion moments in movies?

The Classics

The Classics
I apologize for my absence! I’ve been super busy lately with some new projects, particularly styling for Keaton Row. I’ve noticed a trend recently among my clients… they all want classic pieces that they can style in different ways. And I couldn’t agree more! To me, the three most classic pieces worth investing in are a black blazer, a white button-down blouse, and dark denim jeans. Not only do these three items make a complete outfit that is classic and chic, they can be mixed up in infinite ways. Here are just three examples of how to wear your classics in a not-so-average way.

 

1. The Black Blazer: Layering with a black blazer is the easiest way to make an outfit look more structured, put-together, polished, however you want to say it… A bright-hued, flirty dress is balanced with a sleek black blazer and studded pumps.
Blazer: Theory, Dress: M Missoni, Pumps: Valentino, Clutch: DVF, Earrings: NUR 

 

2. The White Button-Down: A menswear-inspired piece, the white button-down naturally looks great with trousers or jeans, but I also like the wild-card pairing of something feminine and romantic. This look is a modern take on work-wear with a slim-patterned skirt and rich ankle-booties.
Blouse: Equipment, Skirt: Prabal Gurung, Booties: Vince Camuto (only $139!), Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Bracelet: Kazuri

 

3. The Dark Denim Jean: A dark jean can easily be dressed up or down to fit your style. For a laid-back cool look, layer with a jumper and a scarf. Tasseled loafers and gold jewelry keep the look modern and sophisticated.
Jeans: J Brand, Madame Sweatshirt: Zoe Karssen (absolutely in love), Loafers: Madison Harding, Bag: Cambridge Satchel Co., Scarf: Tory Burch, Watch: Kate Spade, Leather wrap bracelet: Marc by Marc Jacobs

1 Piece, 3 Ways: Equipment Blouse

1 Piece, 3 Ways: Blouse
In case you haven’t heard, collared blouses are IN, and this topper from Equipment is simply lovely. Equipment blouses are no cheapie purchase (well, at least for a recent-grad with student loans and no money like me), so you’d want to get a lot of use out of it. Problem solved. I give you three totally different ways to wear this beautiful, bedazzled blouse. Take the first look on a date or to cocktails – add a jersey mini-skirt in THE color of the season and sexy leopard heels. Add a little extra bling with jewelry, but carry a simple envelope clutch to pull the whole look together. The second look can go just about anywhere. Slim, dark-wash jeans complement the silk blouse, while sturdy ankle booties and a parka are surprising and cool elements. Add a spotted circle bag because, well… I am obsessed with this bag. The third look can be worn to the office. Minimalism never goes out of style, so pair the blouse with a neutral pant and a classic black sweater. Black patent loafers, a carryall bag, and eyeglasses make this look practical and chic. The pocket-watch pendant adds whimsy to this polished look. What do you think? How would you wear this sparkly collared top?
