Friday Frocks: Mommy and Me

pregnant celebsIn honor of Mother’s Day, this week’s frocks are dedicated to the beautiful babes with babies on board.  And while I’ve not been pregnant, through writing this post, I did learn how tough it is to find something to cover up the impending baby bump.  It would appear there are two basic approaches to dressing during pregnancy: loose and flowing empire waistlines or stretchy bodycon dresses.  Being pregnant doesn’t require you to dress in tents and awnings and by slipping into something slinky, you are owning that bump… as you should.

mexico fashionIn order to attend a fiesta, one must be ready to stand up, stand out, and salsa… or at least consume some.  The best kind of frocks for fiestas happen to be colorful and embellished- two things that terrify most black uniformed New Yorkers.  Fear not, colorphobes.  I’m not talking quinceanera kind of couture.  Think casual, perfectly paired with strappy, flat leather sandals, big hoops, a stack of bangles, and a taco.  En fuego.

Friday Frocks: Festival Friendly

gypsyThe dress code at Coachella is basically the opposite of the Meatpacking District on a Saturday night.  That’s right, ladies.  Leave your skin tight bandage dresses in the closet… better yet your donation pile.  For an outdoor music festival it’s best to be in something loose and free flowing- something that doesn’t require platform pumps as an accessory.  Why not opt for a frock sure to set your gypsy soul free, even if you aren’t hanging in the desert this weekend.

Friday Frocks: Cover. Up.

By |March 7th, 2014|Friday Frocks, Why Did You Wear That?|


All seasoned spring break babes know that the only part of your poolside wardrobe almost as important as the bikini is the coverup.  And maybe your shades, but let’s stick with the former.  The coverup must be more than your shredded denim shorts and American Apparel tank top.  To be truly beach chic and to separate the amateurs from the pros, a bathing beauty should have a coverup (or four, depending on vacation duration) that is both casual and elegant, a look that says, “Oh this old thing?” while embodying a Gucci ad.  Besides, they won’t let you in the restaurant without a shirt.
