Sail to Sable Fit & Flare Dress

There’s nothing I love more than a fit and flare dress! (Ok, I do love a lot more, but this is a fashion blog!) The coloring of this Sail to Sable “At the Ferris Wheel” dress drew me in. They call it cabbage, but it’s far from that on my color wheel. It’s a soft green with coral accents. The flare is more structured too, which makes it fun to wear. I still can’t get enough of these Schutz caged wedges either. If you don’t have any white shoes in your closet, get some for summer! You’ll be amazed how much you wear them! And doesn’t the girl look so grown up?! Can’t believe she’ll be in 7th grade…time has flown by too quickly!

I couldn’t resist. I know. I know. You’re probably rolling your eyes at me. “Really? Another fit and flare dress, Emily?!” YES! When a dress is this cute, it just had to come home with me. I picked it up last month at the kate spade outlet. The collar is just so fun! (But I admit my hair caught it a few times.) I felt so dressed up even though the dress is actually denim.

I thought it needed a perfect pop of color. In comes these pink suede Sam Edelman Onyx pumps I picked up at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. I’m still breaking them in; my piggies are not used to pointy pumps! But how much fun are they?! I know these will be getting a lot of wear.

Fit and Flare Yet Again…kate spade Selma Dress

I’m such a sucker for fit and flare dresses. It’s hard to resist that style, especially that brand when it’s on Haute Look at such a great price…in such a great color! Y’all know I’ve said blue is one of my favs, even though this dress is called “venusblue,” which is a first for me. I don’t think they have made that into a crayon yet. 🙂

When asked how she is aging gracefully, Barbara Bush said by wearing her pearls. Pearls are classics and come in so many varieties and colors. I have a mix of fake and real on here…can you tell which is which?! If you don’t have a good pearl necklace, earrings, or bracelet…what on earth are you waiting for? They are staples!

Holiday Dress with Betsey Johnson

Merry Christmas Eve, everyone! I’ve been traveling a bit and have kind of neglected the blog (sorry, blog), but I get a week and a half off of work so maybe I’ll actually get caught up on some posts I’ve been wanting to do…just maybe 🙂

I love a great red dress. I love it even more when I can wear it to work too! This cute Betsey Johnson dress jumped off the rack at me at Nordstrom. Not only did I love the color, but fit and flare is by far my favorite dress shape.

Betsey Johnson Cable Textured Fit & Flare Dress

The texture of this dress is perfect for winter. Makes me think of a cable knit ski sweater. I wanted to pair it with black tights and pops of animal print. If you’ve ever read my blog, you know I love animal print.

This gold necklace I got from Stella & Dot years ago, and it has become a great staple piece. It goes with everything – so simple, yet elegant and makes a subtle statement at the same time. They have a similar style now that you can find here.

Another Fit & Flare from Stitch Fix

Last week, I featured one of the great dresses I got in my latest Stitch Fix. Well…drum roll please…here is the other one I kept. My Stitch Fix stylist listened to exactly what I wanted – “a great fall print dress!” Doesn’t this dress fit that perfectly?! The colors. The print. They are divine!

Stitch Fix Fit & Flare

Now, I love dresses. Sometimes too much. But I don’t have any dresses with such a great print like this. The fabric is so sturdy and thick enough to keep me warm in the late fall and winter if I pair it with tights. The fit and flare style has definitely become my favorite cut.

Stitch Fix Fit & Flare

Not only do I love dresses, but also purses rank high on my list. And I carry a lot o’ crap in my purse…I think it’s a mom thing. But I’ve got to carry stuff “just because I might need it.” Puuuhhhhlllleeeeeze. I never use half of it. Anyway…I had my eye on this Henri Bendel beauty since it came out. It comes in so many beautiful colors, but this rich brown caught my eye. It’s such a great quality leather that will last forever…and a day. Then I had a discount…and I bought myself a present. 🙂

Fit & Flare Dress from Stitch Fix

I got this dress in my latest Stitch Fix. I had asked them for fall dresses, and they sent me four great choices. I immediately fell in love with this Tart fit & flare dress. For starters, the fabric is so soft. It’s like wearing a nightgown! There are so many different ways you can wear this black and white snakeskin print.

Tart Fit & Flare

I definitely wanted to wear this to work, so I thought it would look cute with a little black blazer – that I have had for years! It’s one of those items that you leave hanging in your closet because you just never know when you are going to wear it.

Tart Fit & Flare

I hadn’t worn my turquoise necklace for a while, so I choice that as my pop of color for this outfit. My bracelet has the same pop of color.

Tart Fit & Flare

I’m always a sucker for details, and this back is no exception. Love, love, love the cutout in the back! But boy do I need a spray tan. I am pastey! Hope I’m not blinding you with my whiteness on your screen 🙂

Come back soon to see the other fall dress I kept out of my Stitch Fix!
