weekly finds: eyelet

weekly finds

Hiya, and happy Friday. We’ve been home from California for about a week now, and I’m finally getting over my jet lag. Who would have thought a 3-hour difference could have such an impact? Not me! I’m back at it, coming off of a very awesome and nourishing work week, but am looking forward to the weekend ahead. I was Virtual Styling a spring/summer collection for one of my clients earlier in the week, and she had requested both white eyelet tops and white eyelet dresses. So for this Weekly Finds post, I thought I’d share some of the epicness I came across because while eyelet may be uber feminine when worn on its own (which may not be your look), it can also be super cool when rouged up with fabrics like leather and colors such as black. I love the ethereal sensibility it creates, especially in warmer weather, and while I’ve been coveting this spring/summer 2015 Chloe dress that has been infiltrating my instagram feed, here’s a few more practical (and better price pointed) choices for ya’ll. I currently can’t wear any of it, but you can! Have at it my friends, and an amazing weekend too!

SHOP IT:

Zara is crushing it with this eyelet/lace dress at $129 which can easily work from work to weekend.

This super pretty eyelet top from Madewell, coming in both white and black will work nicely back to denim. So will this one from Johnny Was Collection.

Isabel Marant is always crushing it with eyelet, and she nails it once again with this top and this dress.

I imagine wearing this perfectly polished Joie dress to a spring/summer sunday bbq, or this one from Madewell.

If you can pull off a crop top, this top from Zara is on point, as is this skirt. And if you can’t pull off a crop top, layering a silky cami underneath like this one from Aritzia works too!

I love the silhouette of this top from Maje. And the combination of lace and eyelet is on point too!

This Vanessa Bruno eyelet top is a mega splurge but it’s so so pretty! Maybe you have some extra bonus money that you feel like spending??

I’m obsessed with this Topshop eyelet dress and envision pairing it with a black leather bootie or a funky gladiator sandal like these from Joie.

Go head-to-toe eyelet in this maxi style from Catherine Malandrino. I love this one too from Alice McCall.

All your summer music festivals can be attended wearing this eyelet romper. This one too from Stone Cold Fox.

Too bad I’m pregnant because I would certainly purchase this midi eyelet dress from Ulla Johnson if I wasn’t. Someone buy it, snap a photo and send me a photo so I can live vicariously through you!

Hello, and happy week. Back in NYC and slowly watching my tan fade away from the frostiness – holy cold! Things have got to start warming up soon around here! Yesterday I was going to pop over to the Hatch sample sale, but aborted because of the negative degree temperature. Maybe I’ll try for it today. With that said, I worked from home and virtual window shopped instead. Speaking of virtual shopping, last week a client reached out requesting help to find an evening dress for an upcoming event and instead of hitting the pavement, we worked exactly this way. My client wanted a “sophisticated”, but low-key cocktail dress, that was season-appropriate, and which concealed her mid-section. Rent the Runway was ideal since she didn’t want to invest in a new dress right now.

Whatever your specific needs, timeframe, and budget, hand-picked, edited selections and personalized, coordinated outfits can be delivered to you via e-mail and revised until we find what works best. In this case, my client narrowed down her own choices, and I provided guidance and feedback. Once the dress is chosen, we will work on the layers such as shoes and accessories. We also may take a shopping trip to the NYC Rent The Runway store to try on in person. Above is the example of our first round of edits. Keep in mind that my feedback was based on her individual style personality, body type, specific wants and needs. We are all very, very different! 

More affordable then in-person styling, virtual styling is not only a great option for clients who don’t live close by, but for locals too. Friends and family are always willing to offer opinions, but sometimes we need objectivity and a professional perspective! Reach out and let me help you look your best, always taking into consideration your unique sensibility, specific needs and offering only styles that compliment your shape best.
