The Dress Up

There are always those few things in your closet that you tend to wear a little too often, a little too much. For reasons of comfort, style, design, whathaveyou - you just lovingly abuse that shirt, that belt, or those pair of jeans.

c u r r e n t l y i n m y c l o s e t


The Vince T-Shirt Dress, $48
Cotton knits and jersey material really do it for me, so as you would expect, I’m pretty big on James Perse and Vince.
How I dress it up? Linea Pelle woven belt, Mystique sandels, Pucci headscarf, Oliver Peoples bella donna sunglasses and H&M super thin gold hoops ($1.99)
How I dress it down? JBrand Skinny jeans or True Religion Destroyed Joeys, wooden bangles (H&M, $4.99 for a set of ALOT), Bernado leather thongs, and Linea Pelle woven belt hung low at the waist


Rachel Pally Full-Tie Tube Dress, $198
This piece is so versatile -- you can transform this dress into anything really.
How I dress it up? As a dress. Cris-crossed in the front and worn as a halter. Gucci horse-bit clogs.
How I dress it down? Worn as a skirt (wrapped around my waist, tied in a knot in the back allowing the straps to sway effortlessly behind). Simple black cami. Black Havaianas. Forever 21, silver plated earrings to finish.



J Brand Skinny Jeans 10", $159
The skinny on the skinny jeans. At the moment, I can't stop ranting about them.
How I dress it up? H&M off-the-shoulder babydoll, Jessica black patent leather Amy's, Rachel Leigh Earrings
How I dress it down? Vince v-neck tunic tank (loose fitting), Kurtz Army Hat, Oliver Peoples bella donnas, Coach Abbi printed python sandals.

any chance you'd be interested in helping me revamp my closet to make it appropriate for the work scene? Before you move to LA of course

My friend, I am at your service. I'm playing dress up each week. I'll write about work attire next week. But of course, I will make a special housecall for you. =)

I love the lightweight of the Vince t-shirt dress, it's so comfy! And yes, you can dress it up and down...perfect!

how do jbrand jeans fit? true to size? i've had my eye on them for awhile now but i never got my ass to barneys or ron herman, the only brick and mortar stores that carry them,

jbrands fit a bit larger. personally, if you're in between sizes, i'd wear one size down. The material stretches quite a bit. they are very slimming and accentuate your very bottom assets! they are currently my favorite jeans along with true religions.
