Day 3: Runway to Reality

Hi y’all! I’m back again with another fall trend from my fabulous collaboration with Neimans and photographer Christos Patelis. Photo courtesy of InStyle magazine A friend crashed our shoot! As a junior, I’m beginning to feel the pressure to add a killer internship to my resume. This black, silver and white Alice + Olivia tweed dress is office appropriate without feeling boring. The black mesh detailing screams “party in the back!” I accessorized with a Henri Bendel bracelet and assorted Forever21 bangles. Plus, I channeled my style crush Kate Middleton with nude Enzo Angiolini peep toe pumps (similar). I love…

Playful Peplum

Aren’t you swooning over these silhouettes? I love the feminine and fluttery feel of peplum. Thankfully it’s a trend that’s here to stay! Tory Burch, Peter Som, and Zac Posen all showed peplum in their fall 2012 shows. If you have a boyish figure like I do, you’ll go crazy over peplum’s hourglass effect.

Have a great weekend everyone! xo Photo Credits Top row (left to right) Topshop Petite Pearl Collar…
