Today, I want to share with you one of my last sessions of August as we prepare to say a fond farewell to summer. The days are slowly getting shorter again, so when I’m busy or deep in thought I don’t even notice the sun disappearing below the horizon. Yet pictures at dusk have a unique charm all of their own – with silhouettes touched by the last rays of the sun taking on a mysterious air.

Hi all and happy Friday! I’m back today with a cool look I wore to work, featuring a collared swing dress that looks a little like a tuxedo, with black tights and these amazing, pointed toe black heels with a t-strap. I love how this look is a little mod and definitely a little edgy. I usually don’t wear a lot of black, but I love how cool this looks. Hope you like!
The best part of this outfit, I think, is the way this gorgeous half-moon necklace just drapes over the collar. I received this necklace from a shop called Happiness Boutique, which is kind of perfect for me!
A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to go down to Washington D.C. for the unveiling of White House Black Market’s special Inaugural Dress Collection. It’s a special collection of formal dresses that they create every four years, taking inspiration from the iconic style of America’s First Ladies. As exemplified by the dress I’m wearing today, the collection is right up my alley—a perfect union of classic and modern. Just wait ’til you see the rest of their line up…
You may recognize this dress from my recent 30 Dresses in 30 Days Series, where it was my pick for Night at the Theater. I have to say, one of the best parts about moving back to NYC is having access to the world’s best theater. And as someone who is about as theater-obsessed as they come, I try to take advantage of all that Broadway (and the New York art scene at large) has to offer as often as possible. It was no surprise that the ideal way to spend my Sunday birthday a couple weeks ago was at Jessie Mueller’s amazing performance in the musical Waitress at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre. And thanks to my longtime friends at White House Black Market, I had just the dress for the occasion.
I took those pictures in the summer but I could not decide to publish them or not for a long time… Little black dress, high heels and black seamed tights – taking elegant photos of this provocative set was a challenge! 😉
