In a hat

I do love a good hat.  This is a great hat that I picked up at a friends’ store.  I’ve been waiting for the right time to wear it and decided to wear it on a rainy night!

As you can see I paired up my fab hat with pleather leggings, a studded sleeveless shirt, rhinestone necklace and wedges.  More is more with this look!

The perfect YELLOW dress

Yellow isn’t for everyone, but if you’re willing to try one…BCBG has the best one around!  Not only did I love the color of my Cain dress, but check out the amazing cut (2 high slits, cut out back, perfect neckline) and the applique was so well done.  The nude color lining is what you see behind all the lace and sequin applique.  If you want to be on trend, go for lace.  It is so hot and the BCBG dress lines are using lace in fresh ways.

ssshhhh… my comes in black and a shorter version as well!

I wore a long pearl necklace, but could have easily wore a simple or no necklace.  DSC_0003 - Version 2 DSC_0005 - Version 2 DSC_0059 DSC_0067

Dressing for a cause (part 2)

I recently attended the 11th annual “Benefit by the Sea” for Crossroads House in Portsmouth, NH.  Crossroads House provides a safe, transitional shelter and program that helps its residents move with confidence to stable and worthy housing.

Again, it was an impressive event of beautifully dressed people and pretty touches all around.  As I looked around, some were dressed in formal black tie and others in slacks and the ladies were mostly in cocktail attire with some being more or less formal.  But in the Seacoast area, really anything goes.

Last year I was in a long form fitting dress, so this year I went for a short babydoll dress.

Compared to last year, this look felt much more casual.  Last year people were really drawn to my dress.  I like to mix up my looks, as it’s part of my creative process.  Really who cares what you’re wearing to such a well deserved cause.  Overall, what a hit!

Express yourself

Clothing is such an expression of how we’re feeling.  If you’re feeling your outfit, then don’t doubt it~ just wear it and you’ll pull it off 100%.  If there’s something about your outfit that isn’t inspiring you, then swap it out.  I do it all the time.  Being able to truly express yourself takes confidence, but if you like how your feeling in your outfit then you’ve got it girl!  It will show.
From the slick hair to the fitted leather bomber, this girl is all about the cool factor. #mbfwa #streetstyle #model #leather #mrnewton

Gala Style

Bright Lights Big City Gala at the Ritz-Carlton on Boston to raise money for Jaden’s Ladder.  This foundation is very special as they aid women and children move on after being in a domestic abuse life cycle.  I was honored to attend this event and with such a classy location, you can wear that sequence dress, big bold sparkly necklace, all under a gold coat!

Dress by Tory Burch, necklace from Fashioneta, coat by Burberry, and glasses by Tom Ford.  Went with dark blue nails, gold and black earrings, big curly hair and black shiny shoes.  What a fun way to support a well deserved cause.

Stud I’m lusting after you

There’s something about these crazy metal studs and spikes that are getting me wild about fashion.  I know they’ve been out for awhile but at first I thought, ‘i wasn’t that kind of girl’.  Well, turns out I am and I can’t wait to start studding it up.  If you aren’t with me on this trend, then wait till you see these lovelies.  Studs can be beautifully mixed with soft pastels, florals or whites, or you can go for the biker look, but not head to toe…mix it up!
