Black Chic & Bold Accessories

Unlike most women, I have very little black in my closet. Of course I have the simple LBD and a plethora of black dress pants, but most of my favorite tops, dresses, and statement pieces are full of vibrant colors. Every now and then, however, I choose a classic black outfit and have fun with color with accessories & makeup. This casual LBD is so simple and comfy and was a perfect neutral to go with some pink lips and bold Halcyon artistry accessories! These photos are from the modeling shoot I did with the lovely designers from Halcyon.
Are you a color or a neutral lover?

Rent the Runway

One of my guilty pleasures is listening to Elvis Duran and the Morning Show… are any of you fans?  Anyway, Carla Marie shared this really cool website called  Rent the Runway.  We all remember Bag Borrow Steal from Sex and the City right?  Well, this is a similar concept.  If you have a gala, wedding, special event to go to, you can rent gorgeous designer dresses from $30-200.  It’s a cool concept, especially if you have a high-end event to go to (ahem, fashion week?) and you want to look killer but cannot afford to buy the dress.  Plus, you will never be seen in the same dress twice.
