Ruffled Leopard Dress & Ally Pumps

I saw this ruffle leopard print dress on a coworker at work, and when she told me it was $35 from the WhoWhatWear collaboration at Target, I ordered one for myself! As you probably know, I love anything leopard print, especially if there are ruffles too! I like that this particular print is subtle- it does not scream “leopard” unless you really look closely. I also love that it is modest and has sleeves, it makes it the perfect dress for the office.

I paired my new dress with my new favorite black leather pumps from Ally. Ally designs comfortable heels for women, and I can wear these ones for hours at a time and not be in pain due to the arch and toe padding. The shoes haven’t launched to the public yet, but you can sign up early to be in-the-know at https://www.ally.nyc/signup. These pumps are a closet staple!

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Crop Top, Fringe Jeans, Mules, & Draped Leather Jacket

Last week my ballerina cousin Nancy took me as her plus 1 to the Ballet Beautiful book launch party. The event was held in the cutest hideaway space in Meatpacking, called Fort Gansevoort. Attire was “Ballerina Chic”, but I didn’t want to embarrass Nancy with my tulle skirt! I opted for my favorite piece of the moment: my red Maje leather moto jacket. I paired it with a black crop top (it was in the 70s in October!) and ombre fringe jeans (trend alert) that I am really into now. I love pairing them with my pearl studded mules. I completed the look with my trusty ear jackets for a very edgy, downtown look. Lately, I have been loving wearing my leather jackets draped over my shoulders; it gives me an instant “pulled together” look and feel.

Red, White, & Nude

Red, white, and nude…one of my favorite color combinations because it really allows the red to “pop”. I bought this red leather jacket at Maje earlier in the spring, and it’s been a perfect transitional piece to wear into the fall. I love wearing it draped over my shoulders, and this white tie-front dress is perfect for layering. These nude lace-up cage sandals are the perfect complement for any look with a statement piece (but they are a little hard to put on!) I got them for my 26th birthday, so they are going on 3 years and I still love them. I also may own them in black, and you may be seeing them soon! I completed the look with mirrored clear sunnies (trend alert) and dark “Wicked” nail polish by Essie.

My birthday is tomorrow, and I am enjoying NYC’s 70 degree weather 🙂
