Off The Grid

Welcome to Sweater Weather 101. One thing about me is that I like my clothes really tight, or oversized to the brink of ridiculousness. If we must be covered in layers, let them drape along your silhouette, instead of rounding out like a puffin. (I'm looking at you, North Face friends). This off-the-shoulder knit sweater dress is a unique little gem. It's not often you find all the aforementioned facets in one sweater slash dress. A knit sweater should hug and drape in the right places, and this one surely fits the bill, and the love was instantaneous. 

I'm carrying summer's off-the-shoulder trend into the fall. The cozy knit adds to the already playful, classy and sultry trend. I see a pattern with Miss Pap's pieces and I am a big fan. 

It was a rainy Sunday morning on the day of this shoot, raining like cats and dogs. I was forced to cancel my shoot, and my photographer friend and I carried on with our lives. I was bogged down from the flu, but deadlines don't stop for anyone. Hours passed and the rain finally subsided before the sun came out to greet us. I frantically reached out to a few photographer friends, hoping we could catch this tiny bit of sunlight before it sets. 

Lucky for me, Daniel Cohen was heading downtown and we were finally able to cross paths! We caught up with each other, sharing accomplishments big and small. He just had a groundbreaking gig in New York and I just came back from a cool event in Los Angeles. Seeing growth and success for a friend is such an inspiring feeling. 

Although I had forces working against me, I powered through and it worked out for the best. I love how ethereal these shots turned out. I've said it once and I'll say it again: Push yourself, only good things will come from it.

Naked Wardrobe: The NW Midi Set

I couldn't tell if Naked Wardrobe makes a ton of nice dresses or if their models were just plain sexy. Turns out, it's both. It's not often I get excited about a brand's entire collection, but thats what happens when you find nice materials mixed with ultra-flattering cuts--at H&m prices.

I went in on three dresses for three separate occasions--fancy date night, classy cocktail and a sexy work-to-play. Can you guess for which occasion I'll wear this dress?

I am in love and I can't wait to wear this little navy number out on the town.

I paired this look with my holographic Steve Madden heels and Danielle Nicole clutch from Macy's (it's on sale, ladies!)

Happy Friday, y'all. As always, thanks a bunch for dropping in!
