Birthday Dresses

by Dominique on April 27, 2012

Here are a few dresses I picked out to celebrate my birthday this weekend! I will wear the BCBG Max Azria Lou Open-Back Cocktail Dress to a chic cocktail birthday bash; Cache Sheath Dress for dinner with my girls;  BCBG Max Azria Avery Asymmetrical Dress for a brunch/day party (will probably belt it, not sure yet).
Which is your favorite?

Sweet Edge

Just when I thought I could store my sweaters and big jackets, DC was hit with a cold front the last few days. Always a fan of layering over big heavy coats, I threw on this sweaterdress as a shirt and these faux leather pants (my favorite H&M purchase to date) for dinner at El Centro for their $2 Taco Tuesdays. The food was great, although a little too spicy for my weak palate, but definitely a place I’ll check out again.

Shades of Grey

by Dominique on April 24, 2012

In honor of today’s gloomy weather, I decided to match the grey skies with a few shades of my own. Although everything I’m wearing is old and therefore not linkable, sometimes it’s nice to go back to the items in your closet you somehow forgot (like these boots and skirt). Still on the hunt for the perfect rain boot (I’m eyeing these, thesethese, and these), these Vera Wang for Kohls boots have been a nice fill-in (they will also soon be for sale on my blog so let me know if you’re interested).

Felt like channeling my inner classic girl look and go the matchy-matchy route for the office. Although I’ve had these shoes for years I’ve only worn them five times, if that. But given the perfect daytime/appropriate for work heel height I’ll have to put them into the rotation more often. The same goes for this necklace which I never wear and honestly forgot I owned. I currently house most of my necklaces on one of these but  I hate how difficult it is to get a necklace. I’ve seen a few DYI jewelry display options and really like the decorative corkboard option (really cool video here). I think I’ll try creating my own necklace haven one day this week.
