Closet Gossip ~ Kristen’s Style Obsessions

18 Feb

Kristen is all about style and comfort, and if she can get both of those characteristics in one piece; she’s going to buy it. When we asked her to pull a few of her favorite style obsessions, she immediately put together an outfit that is comfortable enough be worn throughout the day and stylish enough that you won’t want to take it off before a night out. blog

The key piece in Kristen’s outfit is the Zoe Karssen Bat Tee. The graphic is subtle and spooky. With its pre-washed look, you won’t have to worry about stiff designs or washing delicate prints. This bat won’t fly away on you!
blog Kristen loves the fit of Joe’s Jeans. They use quality fabrics and are known for their great fit and moderate pricing. To go with the pseudo-masculine graphic tee, Kristen picked a pair of distressed Joe’s Rolled Skinny Ankle Crop in Cooper Wash.

Being from North Dakota, it only felt natural for Kristen to add the Splendid Bellini Jacket in Navy. This piece is almost like having two jackets in one—a navy cargo style is layered over a striped hoodie. The Bellini Jacket works great over the graphic because even though it’s double-layered, it looks anything but bulky. Kristen’s outfit is complete and casual cool all the way.

Zoe Karssen Bat Tee (also comes in white with black bat): $75.00
Joe’s RolledSkinny Ankle Crop in Cooper Wash: $165.00
Splendid Bellini Jacket in Navy: $258.00

Vegas: FUN!

28 Aug

While I’d like to tell you that we had our fabulous best on for both nights of our Vegas partying – that was not the case. We went from the airport to the ENK Show and hit up the Hudson Jeans/ENK Cocktail party directly after the show. While our airport attire is chic (of course) there isn’t a whole lot of new “what we wore” to discuss. Here are a few snaps of our visit to Surrender Night Club at the Encore Hotel. Note the cheesy poolside glamour shots!

blog blog Night 2 we were able to do a wardrobe change post show for our fabulous dinner at STK. Loved the booming 80s soundtrack, loved the company and loved the truffled fries even more! YUM! We were joined by our friend Erica and her man Tal who were also attending the shows in Vegas. Erica is a huge advocate for Save the Garment District – something near and dear to us too! blog

Here we told Erica and Randi to give us their sassiest STK cool girl pose. blog

Here’s a snap of Kristin and I right before our burrata and heirloom tomato salad is served! Worth every calorie. blog

Our evening didn’t end at STK but we can’t show you those pictures because we left those good times in Vegas! 

Until next year – we’re counting the days already!!

What we wore: J Brand, Lanston, Citizens of Humanity, Nanette Lepore (shout out to Erica) Love Quotes and of course our favorite heels from Louboutain and Gucci

Drinks Are On Me!

After eight long hours at work it’s sometimes hard to find the motivation to throw on some heels and interact socially.  Recently after one too many evenings of frozen pizza and Netflix, I rediscovered the joys of stepping out after work and meeting up with friends for a drink, dinner or dancing! So I’ve traded in my comfy 291 sweatpants for one of these three perfect little outfits that make going from work to play a breeze!

First up, this is the classic cute top, jeans and heels combo. The sequined top by T-Bags is called the Voile Sequin Tank. Its black sequins on a light cream silk fabric give it something sparkly without looking too flashy. A pair of skinny jeans keeps the look sleek and I love the ankle length on this James Cured by Seun jean “Ritchie” style. When I’m not wearing them with heels a cute pair of ballerina slippers (try the Sam Edelman Clement Flats, a little jazzier with their patent leather fabric and patterned cut outs) and a blazer makes these ideal to wear into the office on casual Friday.  A Love Quotes scarf and a great clutch like the Rebecca Minkoff Nightcap Clutch (perfect name!) finish off the look.

Next up, I’m channeling Mad Men’s fabulous retro vibe with a look almost entirely from Juicy Couture (who knew Juicy could be so perfectly retro?) This is that great outfit that really goes from day to night when you swap your day flats for heels and your big bag for a cute clutch. The dress is the Juicy Couture High Waist Pintuck Dress and it’s paired here with the Juicy Couture Blazer with Grosgrain Piping. A bigger clutch like the Lauren Merkin Ava crackled lambskin clutch is great because it’s roomy enough to carry everything I might actually need for the evening!

And finally we have something a little bit more fun and flirty. This Frenzii Off the Shoulder Mini Dress demands to be taken out dancing! It’s made of easy jersey fabric, has a big ruffle across the top of it that sits just off the shoulders and hidden side pockets.  Because of its more casual feel, I like to pair it with a big soft leather bag like the latest from Botkier – the Kai Satchel. In this little number, I’m sure to attract all eyes whiles sipping my margarita at the tiki bar!
