It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with Carrie Bradshaw – she will always be one of my favorite TV fashionistas (along with Blair Waldorf). Carrie changed fashion for everyone and I look to her style almost everyday for inspiration. Every time I twirl through NYC in tulle I think of CB! Today was no different, so I had to share this very, Carrie moment filled with stripes, tulle and of course, stilettos.
I think a tulle skirt is a closet must have for any stylish city gal – it’s so functional and works year around! I pair mine with booties and cashmere in the fall, tights and turtlenecks for winter and crop tops for those warmer months! Skirts with a thick waist band like this one, help your tummy look super tiny and the midi length looks great on everyone… even shorties like me :]
It’s no secret I love twirl-worthy tulle (don’t believe me, check out the highlights here), and since this season calls for tartans & flannel, I paired plaid with my favorite skirt for tulle with a twist.
Confession: I’m addicted to teen TV; The Vampire Diaries, Awkward, Teen Wolf … I don’t care how awful & cheesy it may be, you name it I watch it! So although I love December I hate saying goodbye to my embarrassing bunch of shows during the holiday hiatus. To fill the void, I end up re-watching some of my cancelled favorites all month long, and December 2013 was all about GG … resulting in a re-ignited obsession with Blair Waldorf & her signature headbands!
P.S. I love that the west village is still
dripping in holiday decor (notice the tree behind me?).
I don’t wish we kept it up all year long – then it wouldn’t be special,
but I like to keep a little bit of cheer until mid January!
I had a meeting one windy afternoon in Times Square, so I took a second to enjoy one of the town’s top tourist spots! Tulle skirts always make me feel like Carrie Bradshaw or a ballerina, but today I paired my tulle with a girlie sweatshirt (I’ll share the DIY tutorial this friday) and my go-to boots to dress it down! I dare you to dress outside the lines this month and try tulle with tights & a sweater!
today’s post features twirl worthy tulle for two as waffles joins me in a sparkle statement look.
I pair a tiny bit of tulle with sparkly steps && basic black for girlie glam!
fun fact: my belt is my mom’s from the eighties!!! she wore it over leotards while jazzercizing! (seriously! i couldn’t make this stuff up! but let’s hope she accessorized with leg warmers && a side pony). i love raiding her old closet for past treasures! that’s probably why i’m a secret hoarder (well not so secret anymore), because i’m afraid my future child may want to wear whatever i get rid of!
This season, try layering a statement necklace over your turtle neck! It can be an easy way to slim you down while adding some unexpected sparkle! I also like to layer my arm parties over long sleeve shirts!
for this look, all you need is faith, trust and a little pixie dust… oh, and a sprinkle of kate spade whimsy && a dash of j.crew amazing-ness doesn’t hurt either.
i was feeling a little bit magical today! so i channeled my child-side for a tinker bell inspired look!
i tried to do j.crew justice by pairing my sequin shirt from a few holiday seasons ago (luckily they redo similar versions every year) with my crew cuts (embarrassing, i know) layered tulle skirt && pops of sea foam!
&& as always, piled on the accessories that included girlie pearls and bits of bling to bring a slight twinkle.
