Mid-century Manhattan || Skyline Lights & The Pretty Dress

The Manhattan skyline... it's twinkling lights whisper of excitement, beauty & romance - both present & past.  Of course I think of it's glamour of yesteryear, and all the magic this view has brought to the world.  Matching this timeless scene, is a classic dress from The Pretty Dress Company.  The ivory shade of my Kennedy Roll Collar pencil dress had a dreamy appeal against the soft colors of the sky behind me.  Feeling very midcentury, I styled her with matching long gloves, leopard print & a faux fur vintage coat.

Pastel & Nude || Secrets in Lace Sheer Balconette

My favorite thing about the new Secrets in Lace Sheer Seduction bras, especially today's beige shade, is it's "barely there" appeal.  It is beautifully constructed, has perfect support, is elegant & feminine,   and yet is simple & subtle.  I love a bullet shape, but I'm equally a fan of a smooth and more natural silhouette.  Shocking pink fuchsia bows contrast it's sheer neutral nylon & add an element of surprise   against my skin, which I love.  This design is obviously perfect with delicate, sheer blouses as I previously demonstrated in this post.  Today however, I opted for a peek from pastels!  Nearly matching my skin tone, it is subtle but sexy. 

It was only natural to add my pastel pink seamed stockings, to pair with Barbie pink tones in my outfit. :)

Fading Winter Beauty

It's almost time to say goodbye to winter, as the last official week of the season is upon us.  We still have quite a chill in the air with occasional days of snowfall, but it now melts within hours.  I was happy to see the opulent Grand Army Plaza covered in white before winter is over!  It was such a serene, breathtaking sight.  I find winter so beautiful, but I am ready for the season's change, and to welcome flowers & sundresses back again for a while!
