CARDINAL RULE OF WORKING FROM HOME
I personally don’t need many excuses to keep one of my favorite routines of the day, getting dressed. Midi dresses have been having their moment for some time now, and it’s not a huge mystery why. Delivering at home comfort and more suitable for Zoom meetings than your sweats, midi dresses make me feel more ready for my day ahead. Plus, I will definitely need them for the glorious day when we can put this pandemic behind us. Once you unlock their versatility, you will be delighted by how midi dresses are such a treat-something for today, and something for later.
Headbands have been my hero piece, transforming a mundane t-shirt from drab to fab. Some days, the simple accessory motivates me enough to swap out a legging or sweat pant with a midi skirt. It’s no wonder why on both runways and streets, headbands have become an accessory must-have. Tackle less than perfect hair days with with a puff or knot headband, and you’re ready for your for your day in minutes.
We are so thrilled to introduce a new brand to us, Tibi. Amy Smilovic, the Founder and Creative Director, believes women should dress in a way that is effortless but polished. She's also a master at contradictions— “youthful and sophisticated, masculine and feminine, bold and muted.”
It’s the unexpected details and cuts that make Tibi’s collections super cool yet approachable. Go for an edgy look or pair these pieces with heels and a clutch for a more feminine approach. Either way, you're guaranteed to be noticed!
One Thing That Never Leaves My Front Door
What is the age you can’t swing a hooded sweatshirt anymore? When you graduate from college, do you also graduate the beloved daily piece that followed you from dorm room to the classroom, then to the library, and back?
When I started interviewing for jobs for the first time, I remember the first thing I did after printing off a freshly minted resume, was to purchase a blazer. I don’t think it was until I was well into my 20s that I realized blazers don’t always have to go with a coordinating work trouser. And I think I had to pass my mid-30’s before I officially graduated from sweatshirt to blazer. I find myself layering in blazers more often on any given casual day, than for dressier occasions. Are blazers even for dress-up any more?
