Bright City Nights - I Can See Clearly Now

Here in Wisconsin even though the days are still warm the nights are beginning to get cooler. Lately a light weight jacket comes in handy. The problem for me during this time of year is finding a jacket that isn't too heavy but still looks good when I want to dress up. So when I was designing today's set I had that dilemma in mind. When searching the web for answers I came across this fun and chic Veronica Beard Translucent Coat. I liked that it was sheer enough to be seen through, and the neon trim kicked it up a notch. It is a bit pricey but like all things in fashion you can find similar items at lower price points. This light weight coat is a good reference point to start my search.

A Collaborative Affair

A great outfit for me is when all elements presented works jointly together for one common goal, which is to make you look your best. All the elements on their own should be able to stand alone as pieces that are useful and also make a statement. When thrown together they should successfully convey what is wonderful about your own personal style. So today's question of the day is what does your outfit say about you?

My 10 Faves From The Oscar de la Renta Resort 2015 Collection

Designer Oscar de la Renta has been the undisputed king of ladylike glam for decades. The designer did not disappoint with his collection for Resort 2015. This was one of those rare collections that offered suitable options for day, office, and evening. I always loved Oscar de la Renta's use of color, and he showcased that talent brilliantly in this collection. He also showed a deft hand with his embroidered dresses which are totally lust worthy. I'm sure we will be seeing a few of his stunners on the red carpet this awards season.
