What I Wore: The Witch of Bostwick

Fall Fashion Outfit Posts

And Comfort sent me these culottes earlier this week. When I saw them I thought, “Oh heck no.” I'm short and solid, the idea of full-legged cropped pants sounded like a fashion don't. Then I put them on and fell in love. They are fully lined, have a wide flat waistband in front and wide elastic in the back, and deep pockets. Earlier this day I wore them with a…

Diner en Blanc 2018 DC Nationals Park

What I Wore: Dîner en Blanc DC

Outfit Posts Summer

Dîner en Blanc is a pop-up white dinner party. The concept started 30 years ago and now takes place across six continents.  Attendees bring their own food, tables, chairs, and meet at a secret location for an impromptu posh event of dinner and dancing in a beautiful location.  I think all attendees can agree that this year's Dîner en Blanc DC was not the best.  The venue was a poor…

What I Wore: A Vintage Dress

Outfit Posts Summer

I love wearing vintage. I dig the cool prints, the quality fabrics, the unique silhouettes.  However, vintage is harder to find once you hit double digits in dress sizes. Whether it's a vintage clothing boutique or my local thrift store, pickings get slimmer the larger you are. I've had the most luck finding larger size vintage at Etsy.

What I Wore: Tassels and Fringe

Fall Fashion Outfit Posts

I saw dresses similar to these on Instagram, but they cost an insane amount of money and anyway they weren't available in double-digit sizes.  I was scrolling through ELOQUII and there is a similar dress, much lower in price, and available in a broad range of sizes.  ELOQUII is constantly adding to their selection and they do such a good job at translating popular fashion trends in a way that…

What I Wore: Party Pants

Fall Fashion Outfit Posts

This season I'm really feeling the look of a fitted top with a high waist full or flared pant or skirt.  I'm short waisted so I have avoided high waisted pants in the past… but now that I'm over 40 I care less about traditional figure flattery and more about having a great time getting dressed.  And by changing this mindset, not only do I enjoy getting dressed more, I'm…

What I Wore: Dîner en Blanc

Outfit Posts Summer

Have you heard of Dîner en Blanc? The Dîner en Blanc concept began in Paris in 1988 when Frenchman François Pasquier invited a group of friends to an elegant outdoor dinner at Bois de Boulogne, asking them to dress in white so they could find each other. Since then, Dîner en Blanc has become a worldwide event, spanning six continents. August 26, it took place in Washington DC. When I…
