Simple, effortless, flirty…and even though the little slip dress was my summer staple, I’m taking this trend with me into fall. The beauty of a slip dress is her versatility. She’s a simple yet sexy little number that subtly says, “I’m feminine” without being being over the top. Reminiscent of a slinky piece of lingerie, the slip dress may be too “out there” for some, but with the right styling and accessories, you can take the bedroom out of the slip dress and make it completely wearable for day or night. Not to mention there are about 80 ways ways to style this look with items that are already in your closet. One of my favorite look is layering the slip dress with an over-sized cardigan, sometimes a scarf if it’s chilly, usually with a hat and strappy heels. :)

Went to Capitola a few weeks ago to soak in the last bit of summer, and even though the water was pretty cold (and quite dirty), the weather so amazing. Sometimes when life gets a lil’ hectic, all you need is a bit of downtime, some good o’ Vitamin Ds and a good book! Hope your weekend was fabulous and as much as I love summer, I’m kind of looking forward to fall and some rain already! :)

British philosopher Francis Bacon said, “Fashion is the only attempt to realize art in living forms and social intercourse”. This living form of art holds power – power to control a part of one’s image. Anyone can play a role, embody a story, or represent an era based on what he or she chooses to wear.

I remember when I first saw this dress on the sales rack at Bloomingdales a few years ago… it was 4 times too large for me and I almost passed it up. I tried it on, put it back, then tried it on again… wondering if I can altered it without too much complications (I’m lazy), and finally decided to give in when the sale price was too good to pass up. Well, I’m so glad I didn’t because after altering it, the fit was perfect and here a few years later, it’s still a hit whenever I put it on. When I wear this dress, I feel elegant, confident, and as if I was transformed back to a certain decade. Sometimes I joke and say it’s vintage and that it belongs to my mom. :)

Ahhh, is it Friday yet?
