Mermaid Ruffle || Hourglass & Swarovski Crystals

IMG_e5843

Vintage-inspired mermaid style dresses have been my favorite for as long as I can remember, and I even chose a mermaid gown for my wedding dress.  There's something about the flared ruffle that is so feminine but ironically powerful as balanced among a fitted, curve accentuating piece.  This dress by Pollypop is honestly up with one of my favorites that I own - it just has everything that I love about a frock!  I'm excited for all the ways that I want to wear it, and for today's look I was so happy to feature this stunning Swarovski Collar by Miglio Jewelry USA.  I don't tend to wear a lot of necklaces, but this intricate and ornate collar style piece immediately won me over.... and the earrings to match!

Deep Hues || Liz Taylor-inspired Green Dress

IMG_5288

Every time Elizabeth Taylor comes mind, for some reason I think of that dark forest green color she often wore which made her eyes stand out so beautifully.  Today's outfit reminded me of her, and I played off the deep shade of this Voodoo Vixen dress with a dark purple/berry lip color and loved the way they looked together.  With Autumn sunlight turning softer and orange leaves falling around the city parks, I tend to reach for these deeper hues as holidays are getting closer and closer.  Yesterday we took a long walk in the rain under a shared umbrella and it was absolutely magic!
