I have always been a huge fan of Downton Abbey and this dress is one of the most comfortable ones I have worn. The occasion? Dinner at a lovely Italian restaurant and wandering Atlanta at night afterwards! This was another "please fit, please fit" dress. I've been hesitant to write about it for a while, … Continue reading The Lady Mary
This dress is proof of two things: a.) I really AM a hobbit and b.) miracles do exist! I was browsing the clearance racks (because grad school tuition sucks the life out of your wallet) in early January, and a glimpse of luscious white fabric caught my eye. Normally, I don't do white- I've always … Continue reading It has pockets (or as my family calls it- Curtains)!
Ok, in one’s life there will be a dress. A dress to put all other dresses to shame- that one outfit that you pull out when you’re 85 to tell your grandkids “Look at how I was when I was younger”.

I fell in love with the detailing and coloring of the gown. Black and gold is always a great combination- it’s chic and easy to accessorize.
I’m going to start off with Melania’s blue suit- it really stood out amongst all the black overcoats of the day.

It acted as a buffer against the cold wind and meant that she could skip over having a bulky coat which would spoil the image. I mean seriously- the biggest thing I hate about trying to look good in the winter is having to deal with a gross puffy coat (especially for this Georgia girl who freezes her tail off in the cold), so I have a great of respect for Ralph Lauren’s design.
I thought it was just a Halloween costume, but even so, I wanted it to be the best looking Halloween costume I'd ever pulled off. With the asymmetrical pixie cut and fall lipstick, hair and makeup was taken care of, but the gown itself posed an issue. I'm 5 feet tall, 29 inch waist, hips … Continue reading The Gatsby Gown
