BASICALLY Speaking

3 months ago

A good basic NEVER goes out of style. But don't get frumpy twisted with fashion-forward.

My take on "basics" are sleek, sophisticated, edgy, flashy, and sexy all at the same time.

Tibi went through this whole re-branding thing + it continues to position itself as fashion-forward & it's quite undeniable

Chiara Boni La Petite Robe


I tried on one of these gowns at Bergdorf's and they just totally smooth over any flaws that you have. The material is almost scuba-like, but in a super sophisticated way. It's a slip on style and there are no zippers, etc. Trust me, these dresses are WORTH IT.

I mean, so ethereal, the scoop neck, the sheer blouson sleeves, the mermaid bottom, this is the real deal.

The EPITOME of a LBD this is about the cutest you can get


sweet, sultry - make it what you want

add tights - sky high pumps - pointed patent flats - gold jewelry - a silver handbag - a blazer .. any of these work, obviously NOT at the same time. but you get the point that you can make this dress what you want

Night vs. Day


I love when a top has 1 full sleeve and a no-sleeve type factor. It's modern + sexy.

Wear this Enza Costa jersey tee with this Vetements X Levi's black denim mini for night time affairs; and pair the same top w. Acler's white, buttoned, denim skirt during the day.

I mean, each of these 3 pieces are INSANE. Vetements at an affordable price, Enza is a classic, and Acler is a newbie and the detailing + structure on the white denim mini is pure fashion.

Pump me up


ok, let's do this!! from left -> right, top -> bottom

- patent t-straps are always on my A list, especially ones as streamlined as these Calvin Klein's
- Repetto, a fabulous Parisian brand that you should get to know, is also on my A list
- these pumps by Club Monaco are hella on point and a great addition to any wardrobe
- lbnl are these lace Nine West pumps, they are extremely flattering on, and they are a welcome change

NEXT

- plain patent nudes by Michael Michael Kors = a definite yes
- Brian Atwood is one of the best names in the game and these uniquely colored nudes are perfection + i would suggest you snag them at a great price point
- love a two-toned cap action, and these are also priced incredibly (check how stunning they look on the model)
- lbnl Rachel Zoe is doing it here w. these multi-strapped mary janes. no sure what color pump to wear w. that white dress? ahem, these ones

A good pump is necessary, easy to wear, pretty to look at, and timeless
