Wine Me

Friday, September 28, 2012

Top: Zara; Jeans: Zara ($36!); Flats: Shoemint; Watch: Michael Kors "Runway"; Nails: Essie "Skirting the Issue"

Whether you call it wine, burgundy, or oxblood, it truly is the "IT" of the season. It's EVERYWHERE. And I am yet another sucker who has fallen victim to it. I suddenly need a piece of every kind in this gorgeous fall tone. Jeans, check. Shoes, check. Blazer, check. You get the idea. How do you feel about this color? Are you as obsessed as I am?

Happy Friday! And in honor of this post, I will be sure to have several glasses of wine tonight. Here's to a wonderful weekend! See everyone on Monday.

Floral Dress Remix

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Dress: Zara; Jacket: F21 (similar HERE); Shoes: Ann Taylor (fall version HERE); Clutch: Madison Elizabeth via Etsy; Belt: J.Crew

This dress has gotten so much use over the past few months -- wedding, bridal shower, work-related event -- you name it, I've probably worn this dress to it. I was rotating my summer clothes to the hall closet this past weekend (insert sad face here), and found myself having a hard time putting this one away. So I decided to make it work one last time, this time for fall. I "roughed" it up a bit with a cargo jacket and a belt but still kept it girly with the pops of pink. What do you think? How do you make your favorite summer dresses transition into fall?

Until tomorrow!

Happy 1st Birthday L's Fashion Dish!

One year ago today I sat down at my computer and wrote my first blog post. It's absolutely crazy to me that a year has come and gone already. Where does the time go?!

I never in a million years thought that anyone other than close friends and family would truly be interested in what I had to say. Or what I wore for that matter! I am a fairly open person as it is but it's a whole different ball game when you start sharing your personal life with the whole world. I was so nervous people wouldn't like what I posted. But I'm so thankful that I was wrong! I've met some amazing people along the way and been presented with opportunities that never would have happened if it weren't for this blog. I can't wait to see what the next year brings!

Thank you to every single person who has visited -- whether it was only once or every week. It means the world to me!

And a special thank you to the people who have patiently snapped my photos (and ignored confused and judgy stares from passersby) over the past 12 months. Kim, Taylor, Alexis, and my number one photog Jordan -- I LOVE YOU GUYS!

Jacket: Zara; Blouse: Madewell (another cute version HERE); Jeans: J Brand; Clutch: Tory Burch; Bracelets: Stella & Dot and The Fashion Truck; Necklace: Stella & Dot; Rings: Stella & Dot; Heels: Zara

Fall in New England is my favorite time of year. I'm sure I'm not alone when I say it is hands down the best season for fashion. I love layering light jackets over silk blouses. This cream Zara number is so versatile because not only does it look great with jeans, but I can easily throw it over a dress for a night on the town. 

Also a fun little trick -- do your sunglasses come in a cute case? Mine did! So I used it as a clutch to add instant glam to my somewhat plain outfit. 


Rebecca Minkoff Spring/Summer '13

Monday, September 17, 2012

If you're a frequent reader of L's Fashion Dish, or even a twitter or instagram follower, you're well aware of my obsession with all things Rebecca Minkoff. So when Bloglovin' announced that they would be partnering with RM to give away a $1500 shopping spree at, I hopped to it and chose my three favorite looks from her recent NYFW presentation. And what I am dying to have in my closet for spring/summer 2013.
Narrowing it down to the above three looks was a challenge seeing as how I was obsessed with every. single. piece. she debuted. Let's talk about the shorts in the first look, shall we? Chevron and royal blue together in one piece? Paired with those chic strappy wedges? I've died and gone to sartorial heaven.

I've been eyeing crop tops for a while but haven't had the guts to wear one... until I eyed Rebecca's printed sweetheart version. I vow to do extra crunches this winter so that I can rock it as well as the model above.

The third look has to be my favorite. I can't wait to embrace my inner bohemian princess with this stunning layered dress.

Currently Craving...

Friday, September 14, 2012

Friday's are glorious days for a number of reasons. Number one being that at least twice a month, Friday equals payday. And payday equals shopping. So here are a few things I have my eye on this week.

I've been oogling/drooling over the 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel for a while. But then I spotted it in hot color of the season burgundy and I. Almost. Died. Isn't she a beaut?

Let's talk for a moment about peter pan collars. I love. How about you? This Topshop necklace is a great way to try the look without investing in a full sweater or blouse. I can't wait to pair it with a simple tee and some printed denim.

The classic trench gets a high fashion twist with this Rebecca Minkoff stunner. Fur stole? Yes please. Girly skirt-like pleats? You're killing me, Rebec. (Can I call you that?) I need this jacket in my life STAT.

What are you currently craving? How about some free jewelry? TODAY IS YOUR LAST CHANCE to enter my giveaway! Win one of FIFTY $40 promo codes to spend. "Non-winners" will receive $15 promo codes. If that's what you consider a non-winner. Sounds like a pretty amazing deal if you ask me!


A Little Flounce Never Hurt Anybody...

Thursday, September 13, 2012

Dress: LOFT; Blazer: Zara; Bag: Michael Kors; Sandals: Dolce Vita; Sunnies: Chloe

There's a couple things I love about this dress. The color block (and I thought I was over color block!), the drop waist 1920s feel, and the overall cuteness of it. I mean, anything with a little flounce puts a little extra pep in my step. Does it do that to you? In retrospect, it probably would have looked much better with heels. But truth be told, I like to limit long days at the office in heels to one day a week. And today just wasn't that day. 

Even though I was loving that today was a bit on the summery side, I would be lying if I said I wasn't excited to pair this with opaque tights and booties in a few short weeks.

Graphic Sweater

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Sweater: J.Crew; Jeans: Gap; Shoes: Zara; Watch: Michael Kors; Bangles: Alex & Ani

I spent last weekend in Cleveland with my family for my cousin's absolutely gorgeous wedding. It was so great to have everyone under one roof, even if it was for two short nights. While the bride and groom were off prepping for the big day, I took advantage of the beautiful sights and sneaked in a few outfit pictures. 

Graphic sweaters are everywhere this fall. And while I kind of felt like I was getting dressed for my first day of kindergarten with this heart on my chest, I was also digging the overall laid back feel of the whole ensemble. This is proof that being comfortable can also be chic.

Fashion's Night Out Boston

Friday, September 7, 2012

Last night I was privileged enough to attend the Neiman Marcus and Boston Common Magazine Fashion's Night Out party at Copley Place. The highlight of the night were definitely the fashion shows and they did not disappoint. I've been in total resistance of admitting that the fall season is upon us, but after seeing the gorgeous selection of clothing last night, I'm ready. 

The trends I'm most excited for this seasons are mixed greens, "borrowed from the boys", and LEATHER! There were so many beautiful colors of leather that I had never considered wearing prior to last night. Now I am in desperate need of a pair of supple, cobalt blue leather pants. Or oxblood. Or greige. Or a bigger bank account.
