One of my main problems with wearing flats is finding socks that don't show. The "no show" socks I currently have always cause more trouble than they're worth, they slip off my foot or parts of them still show on some of my fancier shoes. Do you ever wish you had truly invisible socks for your flats too? I was recently introduced to Flat Socks which do just that! They are like insoles for your shoes but in sock material and they're washer/dryer safe. This keeps the inside of your shoes clean and you also have sock-like protection. Their website says it all: no slip, no stink, no show and no sacrifices!


I bought a few pairs to try out, even one made of faux fur when I want to wear flats in Winter. Flat Socks come in two sizes small and large. I bought the small and was able to cut them, using their handy trim guide, to my shoe size. If your insoles come out you can also remove those and use them as a guide to get a perfect match for any pair. Et voilà! Invisible socks for any pair of shoes!


Depending on your shoes you may have to do a bit of extra fine tuning to get the invisible socks to fit in snuggly. I had to really finesse the cuts because the shoes are fairly skinny up front. So the socks I cut for them will probably be mostly for that exact pair. I cut another pair that fit into both my Chanel ballet flats and Joie animal print loafers. So depending on your shoes you can use a single pair of flat socks for multiple flats.

Initially, I was worried about not having something over my toes but it didn't bother me that the invisible sock was only on the bottom of my foot. This is also handy if your shoes are slightly too tight when you're wearing regular socks, as some of mine are. (Hey, if a pair of shoes is on sale I can deal with a tiny bit of discomfort.) I haven't tried them with heels yet, but I imagine it will be just as nice!


Here are a couple photos showing the difference between normal "no show" socks and Flat Socks. (The back photo is both no-show socks) I despise no-show socks that only have a little bit on the toe because they never stay on and always flop back and forth. So these are the only type of no-show I own, and they obviously don't work for shoes like this or ballet flats. That's where flat socks invisible socks come in!

I haven't done a dream outfit in a while and I figured while I'm away on vacation it's the perfect time since I don't have any outfits! I saw this black dress on The Outnet a couple weeks ago and it spoke to me. It is a perfect shape, not too tight but not frumpy. I styled it for Winter, but it would be amazing paired with some sandals come Summertime! I may take the plunge and buy it, but I haven't decided yet (probably won't and then I'll regret it.)

I chose a long sleeve turtleneck bodysuit instead of a regular sweater for the bottom layer to avoid unnecessary bunching because who wants that? To add even more warmth I included a coat, tights and a pair of awesome (PURPLE!) over-the-knee boots. I picked a brighter coat than I would normally wear to offset the darkness of the look. But I bet I would just wear it with a leopard print coat or something crazy like that!

I created this post a couple weeks ago while preparing for vacation and afterwards I HAD to buy the Brian Atwood heels. They were 80% off so I paid $439 instead of 2,195...but in my defense I had some money in PayPal, money from returning a dress from Christmas AND Christmas money from my Grandmother. Unfortunately it was all for nothing, they overwhelmed my short frame and I had to return them.

Tis the season of weddings and wedding showers (not that they aren't all year round, but I have a bunch coming up.) So in the spirit of upcoming nuptials here's a look that's perfect for a wedding shower.  The formula for a shower look is simple: cute dress + heels + cardigan and you're done! This look is a little more girly than I would usually wear, but it fits the occasion, right?

We're getting really close to Christmas so holiday parties are starting to pile up. Below are a few suggestions on what you can wear! You can go dressy, casual or a mix of both. I'm more of a mixer myself dpending on where I'm going.

Dress: Notte by Marchesa dress, Jean-Michel Cazabat pumps, Alexander Wang clutch, Elizabeth Cole necklace, Chanel Cinema nail vernis, Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Espirit,

Pants: Alexander Wang pumps, Iris & Ink sweaterStella McCartney pants, Bijoux Heart earrings, Leighton Denny Golden Girl nail polish

Skirt: Richard Nicoll skirt, Iris & Ink top, Skaist-Taylor blazer, Saint Laurent heels, Elizabeth Cole earrings, Elizabeth Cole necklace

Since you're here reading my blog I must assume you love fashion. So one of our main questions every time a holiday rolls around is: WHAT DO I WEAR!?  Today I'm sharing two different Thanksgiving outfits for inspiration.  One is for those of you that get more dressed up on the day. The second is for ladies who go more casual (or, if you're like me, an outfit to wear after you've stuffed yourself with turkey.)

Outfit 1: Dressy
Skirt: Burberry Prorsum (on sale at The Outnet!), Top: Isabel Marant, Heels: Alexander Wang (on sale at The Outnet!), Earrings: Lauren Wolf Jewelry, and throw on a blazer or sweater

Outfit 2: Casual
Sweater: Suno, Jeans: Frame Denim, Pants: J Brand (on sale at The Outnet!),  Pumps: Jean-Michel Cazabat, Earrings: Alexis Bittar, Bracelet: Alexis Bittar

And here are a couple of my past Thanksgiving outfits.

Ever since I got my new Ancient Greek Sandals I've been dreaming up ways to wear them. This week I wore them Grecician style with my new Marc by Marc Jacobs dress (you'll see on Friday!)  I decided to style them the same way for this post, with different pieces obviously.

The necklace I chose is definitely a splurge but it was too spot on to not include! The pendants are Greek warriors, the perfect match for the sandals.  I also gave two dress options, I think the one on the left is more casual and goes with the sandals better. But, if you feel like dressing them up, option number 2 is great.

Sandals: Ancient Greek Sandals ($230)
Necklace: DANNIJO ($305) 
Arm Cuff: Citrine by the Stones ($188)
Leaf Bracelet: dreamsbythesea ($50 at Etsy)
Left Dress: Norma Kamali ($240 at The Outnet)
Right Dress: Alexander Wang ($277 at The Outnet)

Here is what I would love to be wearing for our family picnic on Sunday, unfortunately I don't own any of the pieces.  If it were a dressier affair I would love to wear this shift dress. But I will come up with an equally great outfit with clothes already in my closet. Unless my Zara order comes in before that, cross your fingers. I'll leave you in suspense for what I got, but you can assume it came from this post!

We are heading in to the time of year where people get the "Winter Blues." They don't want to wear anything but dark colors and hate venturing outside in the freezing cold.  To combat this, I suggest wearing happy bright colors or patterns and layering so you can keep your outfits interesting and fun!  Even if you wear darker colors (like in this look) if you pair things correctly your outfit will not be boring. Winter is a lot better when you feel good.  Today I've made a dream outfit using clothes from Cruise.

I started off the look with this gorgeous M Missoni cardigan coat as the focal point. Next I added some bright jacquard pants from ASOS.  The look was finished off with a Zara sweater, Jimmy Choo pumps and various jewelry.

Coat: M Missoni, Pants: ASOS, Pumps: Jimmy Choo, Sweater: Zara, Jewelry: ASOS
