Hello my lovely and ever so loyal readers, it is Monday once again unfortunately. The weekend is over and we must go “back to the grind.” My grind isn’t too bad however as it simply means back to the blog! So this beautiful spring Monday I am bringing a look to you that I shot with the illustrious Michael Donovan straight from my recent getaway to New York City. You must forgive me cheesy little pun of a title but if you all know me at all you know very well that I can not resist myself when it comes to an obnoxious play on words. So for this look, yes, I decided to slip….. into something a bit more comfortable and by this I mean of course a slip dress! Slip dresses are not new in the fashion world but they come and go as fads and trends do. However, I believe that slip dresses are a classic essential that every woman should keep in her closet. Whether it is your little black dress you are ready for cocktail hour or a sexy little date or if you pair it with sneakers and neck scarf you have yourself a day at the farmers market!
Supermodels Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss were especially known for showing off their bones um I mean collarbones ;) underneath a silk slip garment, it was the perfect 90s way of saying you were chic and put together but still the epitome of cool. For an in between seasons day in New York City I paired a Reformation slip dress featuring zipper detailing with my classic black Theory turtleneck. Just a thin layer can transform your entire look and take you from day to night or even vice versa! I added my classic Chanel black flap bag, another simple yet elegant ya know “you can’t go wrong touch” and my Louis Vuitton monogram booties. Last but not least because I am obsessed with sportswear and trying things out I wore some grey Adidas logo socks to add a casual and yet surprising element to my look. It truly is as simple as that, with one simply chic garment you too can look as effortless as Naomi and Kate.
