caped crusader.

Q: What’s the “it” outerwear item for F/W 15?

A: The cape.

This year they’re are running the gamut from casual, knit numbers to more structured, sharp versions. Our favorites:

CASUAL

J likes the softer, knit versions – just add boots and a bag. Casual, comfy, chic.

street style: best of nyfw.

It’s no secret that the style on the street during Fashion Month is just as interesting and as much of a trend forecaster as what actually comes down the runways. Here are our “best of” picks (pics?) for street style during New York Fashion Week. Of course, a lot of it was weird (*shakes head*)…but a lot of it was pretty great.

As you can see, we’re really feeling the structured, 80s “Working Girl” vibe right now. What #nyfw street style looks tickled your fancy?

jeffrey fashion cares.

J had the pleasure of attending Jeffrey Fashion Cares on August 31, a charity fashion show founded by Atlanta and New York retailer, Jeffrey Kalinsky. This  show has grown to be one of the largest combined AIDS and breast cancer benefits in the country. JFC featured gorgeous, high-end looks from Marc Jacobs, Mary Katrantzou, Narciso Rodriguez, Saint Laurent Paris, Christian Louboutin and more. Here are some of J’s shots from the night:

friday five: fall fashion.

L:

So I’m right here at the end of my pregnancy, and I’m DYING to wear real clothes again. No bump-friendly outfits for me after August 31! Fall is by far my favorite fashion season, and I am dreaming about SO MANY looks. Here are some of the trends I can’t wait to get into, post-baby Ed.

1 // Plaid Accents

is it time for blanket scarves yet?

2 // Wide-Leg Pants

Flares + Button Down
everyday chic: dark wash flares, like these from Shop Sole Dish, + loose button-down.

3 // Patterned Tights

Herringbone Tights
obsessed with these herringbone tights.
polka dot tights are the perfect finishing touch to this navy + black mix.
the perfect finishing touch to this navy + black mix? polka dot tights.

maternity style: the home stretch.

You guys. It’s HOT. And L is PREGNANT. What’s she wearing? These pieces are going the distance, from now until her due date in August. From L:

1) Mossimo Supply Kimono Dress – I wore this dress (in heather gray) pretty much every day of the last two months of my first pregnancy. It isn’t maternity, but it’s super bump-friendly. Other selling points: it’s not too short; it has a flattering neckline; the lightweight jersey is perfect for warm (HOTTT) weather. I really needed a new one this time around, and I was not optimistic that Target would still carry this style five years later…BUT IT DOES! So I recently ordered it two more colors (black and zenith teal). Meet my new uniform, at least for the next five weeks.

Target Mossimo Supply Kimono Dress
after my first pregnancy, joe threatened to throw away the grey version of this dress. rude!

2) Liz Lange Maternity V-Neck – As you guys know, I’m not a fan of buying maternity clothes unless it’s absolutely necessary. Most of it is SUPER expensive and quite often hideous. But I do really like these Liz Lange v-neck tees. They’re nice and long, the fit is perfect…and they’re cheap enough to toss after you give birth. Bye! I have this tee in black (to pair with these black leggings) and navy/white stripe (to pair with my white Spanx skinnies). I wear both with a huge acid yellow chunky necklace. Distract with accessories!

Liz Lange Maternity V Neck
omg, her face.
Target Liz Lange V Neck Tee
perfect with white skinnies.

3) Joe’s Jeans Denim Shorts – I bought these denim shorts (with J!) for my first pregnancy, and I am getting just as much wear out of them the second time around. I pair them with a short sleeve Piko top from Shop Sole Dish (black, grey, royal blue, mint and white available). They weren’t cheap, but I’ve gotten so much wear out of them. Obviously, if I were pregnant in the fall or winter, it might have made more sense to invest in full-length maternity denim.

Joe's Jeans Maternity Shorts
psa: don’t wear these with wedges. they’re short!

4) Liz Lange Maternity Leggings – When I have to dress up these days, my go-to outfit consists of these black leggings, a black tank (usually this one) and a cute kimono (like this one or this one)…finished off with printed leopard heels. Not exactly revolutionary, but comfortable and good enough for the next five weeks.

Target Liz Lange Leggings
my leggings are actually cropped (which i definitely prefer this time of year)…but i can’t find those online! i would cuff these once or twice to get the same look.

5) Aerie Boho Bralettes – OMGGGGG. I discovered these lace bralettes a few weeks ago and they’ve been such a game changer. They’re super comfortable to sleep in, and I will definitely wear them post-pregnancy. This style comes in so many great colors – I had to stop myself at three.

Aerie Boho Lace Bralette
i snagged this bra in pink sorbet (shown here – more of a coral, really), fair (a super light pink) and navy.
Aerie Boho Lace Bralette
love the deep v in the back.

We’d love to see your pregnancy style! Tag us in your pics on Instagram @glitter_blog_xo!

viva las vegas.

It’s no secret that we love a good getaway to Vegas {you can see our past trips here and here.}

Our travels out west include work and play while shopping for L’s boutiques Sole + Dish. With such a packed schedule on short trips, we’ve become experts in transitioning our outfits from day to night. Needless to say when Juliana from Vegas.com challenged us to create the #UltimateVegasOutfit, we accepted. Let’s set the scene for a day in Vegas:

Bonjour: Well, good morning! Time to fuel up for the day at one of the best breakfast | brunch spots on the strip, Mon Ami Gabi. From there, hit the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian for a little retail therapy and maybe a gondola ride! Need a pick me up after shopping? (and that means a cocktail) Skip over to Sugar Factory for a “grown-up drink“.

Vegas.com Challenge
Bonjour: romper | fedora | flats | cross-body bag | aviators      Bonne Nuit: romper | belt | heels | clutch | earrings

Bonne Nuit: Let’s take on the night. After a quick change at our home away from home, Hard Rock Hotel, we waste no time and head to dinner downstairs at our favorite, Pink Taco. Keep in mind happy hour is from 3-7PM! Post-dinner drinks at The Chandelier Bar in The Cosmopolitan are a must then maybe a little blackjack in the casino. #winning

Fill us in on some of your favorite Vegas hotspots and restos!

friday five: things we love.

We have a sneaking suspicion that the weather is not going to cooperate with our pool/beach plans this weekend…so we might just spend the next 48 hours shopping on our phones. These five things top our must-have list!

1 // Gingham Shirtdress. Timeless and seasonless. This cotton dress by Shop Social Dish is easy and breezy now paired with sandals; it’ll also work in the fall with classic riding boots. Use secret code GLITTER when you check out to get 10% off!

3// Kate Spade Tote. We’re more than in love with this light grey Cove Street Tote. Perfect color, great shape…oh, and it’s on sale.

4 // ASOS Larissa Flats. J actually scooped these crazy cute flats earlier this week. So summer-y paired with a chambray shirt and white ripped skinnies. They also come in black, for those of you who aren’t as into pineapples as we are.

5 // South China Seas Pillow. L continues to be obsessed with all things chinoiserie. This coral pillow (the print is Thibaut’s South China Seas) would be amazing on a navy sofa. We’ve used this Etsy seller before – great stuff. So. Many. Pillows.
