Last spring I got an invitation in the mail from my best friend/sister to be a bridesmaid in her wedding. I started bawling in my kitchen. This was the first time I have been asked to be someone's bridesmaid! Seeing someone I love so much get married to the love of her life is one of those moments that you feel so grateful and lucky to be apart of. My sister is the coolest person ever because she told her bridesmaids that we could pick out our own dresses because she wanted us to be able to wear them again. Her only guiding advice was that our dresses be around the shade of a blue orchid.

I know fall has just begun but I am beginning to round up my inspiration and make my wish list for this season. Overall, I am inspired by elegant but minimalist looks, and monochromatic colors. My fall/winter uniform would be a cashmere sweater or turtleneck, skinny jeans, ankle boots, a classic leather bag, and glam makeup + a silk scarf somehow thrown in there. Here is some of my inspiration.

The real question is how many blog titles can I come up with involving wrap dresses. I'm onto my 8th wrap dress and I'm here to tell you that wrap dresses are LIFE CHANGING. As I've said before wrap dresses are more than a dress. They're a symbol of empowerment, feminism, innovation, and a testament to the incredible works DVF has achieved over the course of her career. Don't believe me? DVF was recently featured in an in the National Portrait Gallery at the SAAM for creating the iconic wrap dress 40 years ago. In one of her interviews on the wrap dress' legacy she said, "I created it, but then it had a life of its own. It gave me my freedom, but it also gave freedom and happiness to a lot of other women."

I've been trying to complete the color rainbow in my dress collection lately. Besides yellow, green has been the hardest to find. I had been inspired by this picture of Audrey Hepburn promoting the film Funny Face (which is arguably the best AH film if you ask me). Tippi Hendren's green suit in the Birds is also another close source of inspiration. Nevertheless, finding a green dress of that caliber and one that could function for work events, weddings, and life wasn't an easy task.

A hot minute ago I received this fun package in the mail. At first I was confused. Was it one of those scary protein powders my brother buys from GNC? No! It was an adorable package from Pixi Beauty! So cute it was even prepared/prescribed for me!
