Rosé + Roses || 11th Annual Polo Classic #ClicquotStyle



It's that time of year again!  I'm so excited to announce that I've once again partnered with Veuve Clicquot champagne for the 11th annual Polo Classic on Saturday, June 2nd.  There are still #VCpoloClassic Rosé Garden tickets left, and that is where you will find me. :) If you are a new reader, take a peek at my experience at last year's VC Polo Classic #10 ... this event is nothing short of over-the-top glamour.  If you live near NYC, you do not want to miss it!  At this year's Polo Classic, we'll also be celebrating Veuve Clicquot's 200th Anniversary of their Rosé!  A special dark anniversary foil currently decorates the bottle, which is truly a glamorous and very special symbol of history.

Today's look is my #CliquotStyle inspiration, and an example of an ensemble you might find me wearing to this classic event.  With rosé + roses my inspiration, I styled this outfit with a vintage embroidered dress set from Lady Jane Vintage, delicate gloves & crystal jewelry also from LJV, flowers from Niccoco Creations, and a hat from Birds & Fresia.  What better place to represent an iconic New York City garden party than the place that holds my heart, Central Park.

I will see you in the Rose Garden, June 2nd!  You can purchase tickets here.

Sky Blue & Rose Pink || Miss Retro Chic in Early Buds


On a beautiful April morning, with early spring blossoms beginning to bloom, I soaked in the budding vibrancy in another perfect Miss Retro Chic dress.  This piece is appropriately titled "Royal Ballet 50s Swing Dress."  A ballerina is just what I felt like, since twirling was a constant temptation!  It was designed in one of my favorite color combinations: baby blue & shades of rose, a palette fit for this setting of sky & cherry blossom....

Hey Sailor || Secrets in Lace Portrait Collar Top



Swim season is upon us!  The Portrait Collar Top from Secrets in Lace is so versatile, you can actually wear it from the office to the ocean.  A wide feminine collar & large buttons give a sailor-like feel, and shiny satin fabric add some sass & glamour to the boardwalk.  Add an oversized hat & cat-eye sunnies, and you have 50's Marilyn meets 90's Thierry Mugler chic... and don't forget your red lipstick and sunscreen. :)
