“How Can I Wear It?”: Polka Dots

Polka dots have been fascinating fashionistas for decades. The print is whimsical, charming and more versatile than you may think. Polka dots also have a throw back vintage feel, which gives us a sense of nostalgia whenever we wear them. Designers like Kate Spade and J.Crew have used the signature print for years and continue to make it current each season.

One of my favorite ways to sport polka dots is with a tough texture like leather. Throw on a buttery leather jacket with a vintage polka dot blouse and you’re ready to go. Polka dot accessories also add a sense of style to any look, weather you are sporting a colorful scarf or a printed a bold clutch.

Try vintage or thrift stores for some unique polka dot prints that you can mix and match. Don’t be afraid to have fun when putting together your polka dot look! Let your inner Mini Mouse play for the day and make this print a part of your wardrobe today.

Photo-Op: Boutiquing and Dior Beauty

One of my favorite parts of my job is getting the opportunity to work with strong women entrepreneurs. Erin Hall and April Madigan are the dynamic duo behind the successful website Boutiquing.com. Their site highlights boutiques from around the country while showcasing trends and latest arrivals you must just can’t miss. They are also good friends of mine, so I was thrilled when they asked me to be apart of this unique photo-shoot.

The challenge was to use a new Dior makeup eyeshadow palette on six very different complexions.  Lucky for us, we had a super talented makeup artist and my favorite photog, Tricia Meteer of Equinox Photo to make all of the ladies uniquely fabulous. The result was a classic photos with a modern twist!
