Made in Italy…this is something that I always love to see on labels. There’s something about Italian’s and fashion. They get it. They use quality fabrics, make effortless cuts and provide styles that will last the test of time.
Naturally when Pietro Brunelli offered to send me a couple of their Spring/Summer collection dresses, I said yes. This dress is glamorous and the color is so beautiful (you’ll see below). I felt like a pregnant goddess in it and that’s a good thing. Wish I could capture that feeling always…cause I got to be honest, somedays I am feeling anything but goddess like ;)
Thus the woes of being 9 months pregnant (tick, tock, baby Alexander, we are waiting).
The JCPenney Glam Suite was held in the super chic Delano Hotel Penthouse…so for that reason alone, I had to attend, right?
I’m obsessing about navy blue lately…it’s my new black. I feel like it’s a little easier to wear during the day and the the ability to keep the accessories day time friendly are easier (in my opinion).
I have worn this dress to the thread, I swear. It’s a non-maternity dress but the shift dress allows me to wear it over my belly bump and still keep its style.
I have done this a lot with my previous pregnancy and with this one as well…buying shift dresses in a size or two bigger than my normal size.
This dress has worked for me for the last three months and I know it will work for me post-pregnancy too so it’s a big win for me.
Everything body wise changes when you’re pregnant…from your hair to your nails to your thighs to your breasts, even your feet. Except for mine. Everyone always told me that my feet would change sizes after my first pregnancy…that (gasp!) they would be bigger and I would have to say goodbye to my old heels. Well, thank the shoe Gods, it didn’t happen to me and during this pregnancy, I’m happy to report that the one constant thing is my shoe size. I’m still (comfortably) a size 38.
So when I saw these Kate Spade heels marked wayyyyyyyy down on Saks.com I said to myself; “why not?” and pushed “purchase”.
They’re super sexy in their shape and height yet definitely sassy and almost a bit kitchy with a blinged up dollar sign on the back. Hey, I live in Miami…I can have fun with my footwear, okay? ;) Continue reading →
White after Labor Day…yes, it still manages to make headlines (boring, I know). I have seen so many articles in prominent fashion sites and magazines about this issue…which is bizarre to me because honestly, white is year round as is EVERY SINGLE COLOR! The days of following rules are long gone and if you’re smart, you can make even the most summery piece suitable for fall/winter.
This Rosie Pope maternity is a perfect example of that. It’s white, crisp and lace…certainly not the “typical” fall attire but add a denim jacket (easiest fix ever) and some fall colors and voila, you’re good to go! Continue reading →
Fall in Miami….the notion of sipping warm drinks, wearing cozy knits and rocking boots is in the minds of all us gals but the reality of fall in Miami is very different. We get to pick certain aspects of those notions but never all of them combined. You’d overheat before you know it ;)
Anyway, I always opt for the boot option when it comes to fall attire because I can keep the rest of my look breezy and light.
When the team from Ted & Muffy reached out to me offering one of their custom fitted foots, I debated for days which one to take because let’s be honest, boots are timeless and can be in your wardrobe for many seasons to come. I wanted to pick something that I could foresee myself in this fall and for many falls after. Enter this suede knee high boot. Yeah, it’s perfect.
