Emmy shmemmy! It's time to talk red carpet fashion! Overall, I thought the night was pretty tame- dare I say...boring?? But, there were a few dresses that, IMHO, knocked it out of the park. Watch the clip below to see me, mom blogger Audrey McClelland and Personal Stylist Jill Marinelli talk about some of our faves and flops from the night on The Rhode Show. Scroll down further to see some others I loved- but didn't have time to talk about! Which dresses were your favorite?
Rose Byrne in Calvin Klein
Kaley Cuoco in Vera Wang
Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Monique Lhuillier
Maria Menounos in Zac Posen
Julie Bowen also in Zac Posen
Stop it. Remember a few weeks ago when I told you about H&M offering online shopping?? This *might* be even better! T.J. Maxx has now opened up their e-commerce store! It was a quiet launch, with no announcement, but trust me- it's there! I heard that this was in the works a few weeks ago, but didn't get my hopes up for a couple of reasons. 1) What you find in stores is so hit or miss that you can't really rely on it 2) I love the thrill of the hunt! Finding that lone designer dress packed in the middle of mediocre clearance brands is a high I can't put into words. However, after perusing the site, I'm over the moon! All the high-end designer brands are there, so if you aren't fortunate enough to live near a T.J.'s with "The Runway"... consider this your new favorite store. For me, this will be a nice additive to my brick & mortar shopping, since I'm a huge fan of trying things on. But maybe now I won't feel the need to be quite as impulsive when purchasing. After all, I'm still paying off the gorj "Vince" sweater I put on layaway a couple weeks ago. Shop on, Maxxinistas!
Now that it's Labor Day- am I sad summer is more or less over? Yes. But you can only wear a maxi dress so many days in a row without feeling uninspired. While I await the full on chunky knits weather, I'm happy to start getting creative with my clothes again. That's right ladies, it's layering season! So, as you say so long to summer- say hello to some of the outerwear trends you'll be seeing this season.
Not for everyone, but varsity jackets are everywhere. If your mom didn't hoard yours in the closet since high school, try picking up one that's a little more discreet. Also love this one.
I'm so into vests right now; they may warrant their own post later on this season. There are a few ways to do them. Love a utilitarian look or go edgier with leather. The one above is a nice mix of both.
There are some really amazing drape front cardigans out there, but they can actually be quite expensive. I was inspired by this one from Alice + Olivia but am still trying to find a cheaper version that I adore. My best advice for this fall staple is to hit up your local TJ Maxx- they usually have a good supply.
Moto jackets are still huge for fall, and perfect for layering. This Mossimo one has a great price point.
