currently craving: denim jumpsuits

must have: faux leather skater skirts.

Faux leather skater skirts top our list of fall must-haves. Whether stamped to mimic quilting, punched to lend airiness, or just short, sweet and simple, these skirts will take you from fall through winter and all the way into spring. Pair them with a chambray shirt and flats now; a turtleneck, tights and ankle boots when it gets cooler. When warmer temps roll around, spring-ify them with a sheer printed blouse and ladylike heels.

friday five: wardrobe staples.

WTF Should I Wear Today?
good question.

Ladies, it’s time for the truth. How often do you ask yourself that question? Pretty much every time you look in your closet? Same. Here. We’ve learned a few things over the years, though.

Getting dressed in the morning is a LOT easier when you have a few staples pieces at your fingertips. We’re talking pieces that pull together the random stuff in your closet. Your mission for this weekend: get your wardrobe in check with these five wardrobe essentials:

1. Solid blazer. Blazers are so versatile. Wear one over a crisp button- down or striped tee for day, and a sparkly tank or neon tee for night. Pair your blazer with pretty much any bottom: trousers, a mini skirt, a pleated skirt, shorts (even cut-offs). L legit wears a navy blazer every other day.

2. Ankle Pant. A tailored pair of pants work for the office, cocktails, brunch, etc. Wear with a button-down and/or jacket for the office; pair with a slouchy tee for the weekend. You’ll get tons of wear out of basic black (duh), but a printed pair is also versatile. Make sure you choose ankle-length pants, so you can wear them with flats or heels.

3. Patent Pumps. A classic pair of black patent heels is always appropriate. Don’t be afraid to wear them with navy–we love that combo.

4. Chambray Shirt. Chambray is a no-brainer for casual occasions, but it also works for the office and evening. Wear it under a suit for work (just make sure your jewelry is dressy), and pair with your brightest shorts or sparkliest skirt for an evening out. Pop your collar, roll your sleeves, and carry a fun clutch.

see? chambray looks great with a sparkly skirt.

5. Go-To Bag. A handbag in a classic shape works for day or night. Choose one with a fun detail (like neon trim) to make a statement.

Melie Bianco Scarlett Bag
neutral + neon = the perfect spring bag. this one by Melie Bianco made an appearance in the Social Dish Spring 2013 photo shoot!

Happy Thursday, glitter girls!

We don’t think of ourselves as particularly sporty, but we’re really feeling utility vests right now. This versatile piece can skew casual, dressy, dressy-casual…you name it. Here are our three favorite ways to rock a utility vest.

1. Weekday Casual. Obviously, a utility vest looks great with a cute, simple ensemble.

Casual Vest Look
Lauren at Stylized Existence paired her vest with an orange blouse, fur collar and boyfriend skinnies.

2. Sophisticated Casual. Add feminine accessories to create a more uptown look.

Sophisticated Casual Vest Look
add a belt, statement jewelry and lady-like wedges.

3. Cocktail Casual. You can also wear a utility vest in a more unexpected way. Here’s one of our favorite bloggers, Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere, pairing a vest with dressier pieces:

Dressy Vest Look
perfect for drinks with the girls.

L is going to pair this olive vest from Shop Social Dish with bright pink lace shorts, a chambray button-down, and ankle boots. How would you wear it?

DISH Vest Look
do it the Dish way: vest + chambray shirt + statement necklace + lace shorts + ankle boots

recap: fashion segment

Happy Wednesday, glitter girls!

I was thrilled to be asked by a local television station to put together a few Georgia Southern “game day” looks in honor of GSU’s homecoming last weekend. I was a little nervous about speaking on live television, but I think I did fine. The clothes speak for themselves anyway, right?

J couldn’t make it down for this event, but she was there in spirit. Here are a few pics of yours truly, plus a photo of each model. I am lucky to have such beautiful friends!  Check out the fashion magic we worked with GSU’s colors: navy, gold and white.

L + Employees
thanks to all of my fantastic employees who showed up in their own game day outfits!

“Cute and Casual” Tailgate Look:

Game Day Look 1
yes, this look qualifies as “game day”…but you can rock these gold skinnies and chambray shirt any day of the week.

Cold Weather Looks:

Game Day Look 2
you can’t see them, but shannon’s leopard print loafers are my favorite part of this cold weather look. every outfit needs a little pattern.
Game Day Look 3
we layered a tank, cardi and leather jacket to create our second “cold weather” look.

Dressy Post-Game Looks:

Game Day Look 4
this was the simplest outfit we did, but i think it had the most impact. love the sparkly tee paired with dark jeans and simple heels. sequins for day? yep.
Game Day Look 5
pair classics like a white button-down and navy blazer with a shimmer skirt and ankle boots. so glitter.

Most of these styles can be found on www.shopsocialdish.com.

pack your bags.

Happy Monday, Glitter Girls!  J and I are running around today, getting ready for our trip. (Maybe you’ve heard about it?) Packing for a whole week has been a bit of a challenge. Here’s what we made room for in our suitcases…

L’s List:

Straw Fedora
necessary for the plane and the pool.
Matisse Coconuts Gaucho Boot
we’ll be on our feet all day, and these are SO comfy.
Leopard Print Denim Cut-Offs
slightly obsessed with these leopard print denim cut-offs.
ViX Angola Bikini
vix swimsuits are pricey, but the fit and the fabric are worth the money. we’re hoping we’ll have at least one afternoon to relax a little by the pool.
with super weird flight times and time changes, a sleep mask is a MUST.

J’s List:

glitter heels = vegas
we are *obsessed* with peplum right now. spice this up with some jewels and we’re vegas ready.
vintage chanel.
this chambray shirt will jazz up my MAGIC ensemble.
vegas is loud, y’all. and we will need SOME beauty sleep.

Clearly we’re taking more than this…but these are our highlights.  What are we missing?  What would y’all take if you were going with us?  Eeeeeeek, we’re leaving tomorrow!

xoxo
