One. Over the years, I have collected more long dress coats than I care to talk about. What can I say? Some women like shoes, I like handbags and coats. Anyway, I’ve decided that I probably need a more casual short coat to wear out campaigning.
Two. Last week, I wrote a post about stupid iPhone cases (that damn bunny haunts my nightmares) and many of you asked which iPhone case I ended up purchasing. Actually, I have three: the case above from MadeByGirl, a lace printed case and this case by Amy Sia.
Three. As autumn approaches, it’s time to start thinking about scarves. I prefer lightweight ones that can be worn nine months of the year like these scarves from Club Monaco. The tonal embroidery is fantastic, and they’re such a steal at 75-percent-off. I’m also in love with this snakeskin-printed scarf from J.CREW.
Four. Black Honey lipstick has been in my makeup bag since I was 15-years-old, and I’m so glad that Clinique decided to add some more colors to the Almost Lipstick line. It really is the perfect product for women who want a kiss of color without the heavy feel of lipstick. But if you need your lip color with a side of moisturization, try Fresh Sugar Plum Lip Treatment.
Five. If I had a signature look, it would be long-sleeved dresses. They’re perfect for work or dinner out, and they’re so easy and chic. Perfect for those morning when thinking about what you’re wearing seems like too much work.
This dress from Hoss Intropia is the perfect example of style and ease. The pleated faux-wrap will help conceal less-than-perfect abdominals, and the deep purple color is just to die for. But if $200 is more than you were looking to spend, Bluefly has some great options for long-sleeved dresses like this vibrant blue faux wrap and this boysenberry-colored v-neck dress.
Six. How perfect are these beige and black cap-toe flats? Perfect for casual work days, weekends and traveling. I positively adore them. Looking less than-$10 on a pair? Target has several color options that are sure to please.
