I Got My Little Black Dress On

As Sara Bareilles song tells us, we can do anything with a little black dress on.

This LBD in particular is really great. With its drop waist style, it flows and moves with you. I love a long sleeved mini dress and this one is great! The added detail of the white cuffs on each sleeves catches the eye and the simplicity of the dress allows you to accessorize as much or as little as you choose. For a day in the city, I chose some fun, leopard print flats with a beaded pompon on the toe. I carried a large unconstructed Chanel bag and wore a precious, silk, double banded headband with tiny bows on each section. The neckline is so simple and I wore my everyday diamond cross and nothing else. This is one of those perfect outfits that can take you from day to night and you can’t help but feel good in it. On this particular day, I was hanging out in Tribeca at the Tribeca Grand. I thoroughly enjoyed the art exhibited throughout the lobby by Peter Tunney. The surfer in me loved the surfboard art because, yes, it does take courage as so many things in life do. Including beginning a fashion blog. xo B!

Cute and Cultured

 

Unlucky turned to very lucky while visiting the Longhouse Reserve in East Hampton. While it was a planned stop on my trip to The Hamptons, it was very disappointing to pull in and discover that it was closed. While regrouping and thinking about our next move in the parking lot, a man walked up to our window. Due to this trustees kindness and insistence that we stay, we got to experience this exquisite 16 acre garden full of beautiful art and landscaping. (And, we had it all to ourselves!). On this particular day, it was excruciatingly hot. So of course, I had to plan my attire for a day that would be spent walking through the gardens. I decided on this casual long black dress by Indah. The oversized arm opening and double side slits made the heat more bearable. The cool 100% rayon fabric made the dress very light and airy, perfect for the heat. Underneath the dress, I slipped on a simple black bandeau to be sure to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. I kept my accessories simple wearing a large turquoise cross ring that was purchased at a small boutique. I also added my Dior sunglasses that I had purchased while in the Bahamas. They are a limited edition and I love the pearl frames with the easy cat-eye shape and purple reflection lenses. I have yet to see them anywhere in the states. I love these glasses because no two pair is exactly the same. I pulled my hair up in an easy high ponytail to keep myself even cooler and I was ready for a day wandering through the most amazing art sculptures and gardens! I had no idea that this reserve would be as fabulous as it really was!
