Horizontal stripes…the nemesis of all women…or simply just a misunderstood direction? I’m going with the latter. After all, I felt great wearing this horizontally stripped dress by 4.Collective. I never once felt it made me look big or wider than I am. In fact, I think it hugged my body just right. I think the trick to wearing horizontal stripes is their width and their placement. If you see, the torso of the dress is all horizontal but the skirt part of the dress has more of a curvature giving the skirt a nice bounce appeal. Of course it can…

I picked up this sweet little REDValentino number at the Gilt Warehouse sale and I’m honestly not sure that I can tell you what I paid for it because it was such a steal…and because I’m afraid they made a mistake on the label and will track me down thanks to this post and make me pay the difference. For the record, I will admit that I would happily pay it because this dress and me belong together. It’s the softest prettiest pink ever and it’s got the most delicate little Valentino bow along the waist to make this look…

I can put one one, add some heels and a bag and be done without too much stress (and wardrobe planning). I posted a couple of dark looks lately but just as chic as black can be, so is white. The simplicity of neutrals is elegant and always in style. You look clean and put together and fresh…which exactly is how I felt while wearing…

You guys know I LOVE 4.Collective (seen here, here and here)…for me, they’re the quintessential modern day woman line. Their dresses are made for busy women that want to not only look fabulous while at work but also afterwards. Simplicity in dressing is one of my fave things as a busy mom…and even if you’re not a mom, I think you can appreciate the fact of being able to look good throughout the entire day, no matter where it takes you. The team at 4.Collective sent me some of their fave pieces from their previous collection and I immediately wanted to…
