What I Wore: Universal Standard Geneva Dress in Petite

Outfit Posts Spring

I cannot express how PSYCHED I am that Universal Standard now carries petites! I got the Universal Standard Geneva dress a year or so ago after seeing it look so great on fellow bloggers and on the US site.  However on me, it just didn't work. I struggled to style it for the blog and to be honest, I never wore it again. Universal Standard hinted that they were coming…

Universal Standard Now Has Petites!

Fashion Advice

I don't think I've ever written a blog post with an exclamation point before, but this one deserves it.  I don't recall when I learned about the clothing brand Universal Standard, but I was instantly obsessed.  As a larger size, I was frustrated by the style and quality selection. I loved clean, minimalistic looks with an edge but the brands that offered such looks didn't carry sizes large enough for…

Women, if you want a pair of overalls, get thee some overalls! So many of you email me and leave comments worrying about figure flattery in regard to overalls.

Do you really think you look svelte, chic, and stylish in those jeggings, beat up suede ankle booties, and…

What I Wore: Ode to My Favorite Striped Shirt (plus a giveaway!)

Outfit Posts Winter

I love striped shirts. I think that's clear if you scroll through my outfit posts, my capsule wardrobes, and my sale picks. I think striped shirts are classic, work with so many personal styles, and are way more fun than a solid. I'm not ashamed to admit I had an entire dresser drawer filled with striped shirts – each one had a different look, fit, and purpose. Note I said…

What I Wore: Universal Standard (plus a giveaway!)

Outfit Posts Winter

Once I was interviewed by a venture capitalist looking to invest in a company I've parntered with on the blog. He wanted to know an honest, unbiased view of the brand and to hear from a long-time customer. I admitted I loved the company, but wish they would switch up their marketing to not only feature young skinny girls. He told me that those over 40 aren't looking to attach…

What I Wore: Sightseeing

It's dangerous writing capsule wardrobes. I spend so much time researching pieces I see the benefits, I have the time to envision them in my wardrobe… and sometimes I buy them. And that's what happened with this Boden Ponte blazer after writing my low-maintenance workwear capsule wardrobe! Jacket: Boden (16) | Tee: V-neck Slub Tee c/o Chico's (2) | Jeans: Universal Standard (12) | Boots: L'Amour des Pieds | Bag:…

What I Wore: Stitch Fix Success (and a giveaway!)

Outfit Posts Winter

I've written about two of the four Stitch Fix boxes I've received thus far. The first two were… eh. The second two?  Way better. I believe you get out of Stitch Fix as much as you put in. Regular communication with your stylist, plenty of feedback, regularly updated profile, and access to your Pinterest and Instagram accounts can really help get the right content in your monthly boxes.  And in…
