Dots on Dots

Ever since Marc Jacobs' Fall 2011 Ready To Wear (RTW) and Stella McCartney's Fall 2011 RTW collections, I've begun to think of polka dots as the new stripes. Today I went for monochromatic navy, played with proportions on the dots on my blouse and tights, and added a little pop of leopard. (Because leopard, like a red lip is almost always a good idea.)


  1. im going to a boat party in New York
    its a casual dressy party what should i wear !!??

  2. Lucky you! Definitely check the temperature first, as it will probably be chilly! If it's during the day I would wear high-waisted trousers, a striped sweater or thick striped shirt (try a striped shirt in an unexpected color like dark raspberry or neon green), wedges, a bright scarf and big sunglasses. If it's at night I would go for a brightly colored shift dress (maybe in a primary blue) with black opaque tights and black booties and a printed envelope clutch (I like leopard print or perhaps black lace). Try wearing a big scarf as a shawl for elegance and add some sparkle with a statement necklace. Another idea accessory-wise would be to wear silver cuffs on each arm!

    I hope this helps! And thank you for reading!

    1. Thanks!!!!! Do you have any suggestion s on what to wear to a broadway show!!??

  3. You are very welcome! Being a performer myself, I think it's respectful to dress up for any type of live performance. (excepting a school band concert in the gym, maybe...) For matinee shows, think Sunday morning church clothes, and for evening performances, think casual cocktail wear. For an afternoon showing, try a knee-length, A-line skirt with an embellished tank top and a pretty cardigan with leather wedges. For the evening, wear an LBD (a shift version is my favorite) with strands of faux pearls (I adore my extra-long strand from Dillard's) and nude pumps. Also, for day bring a silk scarf and night a cashmere wrap in case it's chilly in the theatre.

    PS: If your seats are far away bring Opera Glasses (pretty mini binoculars) in a beaded clutch! Enjoy the show!
