Do you ever find yourself sticking to colors, silhouettes, or just general styles that you feel work best for you?
For me, I feel like it’s a fit and flare dress or a full skirt. I find it’s the perfect shape to highlight my waist and looks amazing on pear shapes.
When I first started Brown Paper Doll – this look was the very first outfit I shot! I felt it perfectly showcased my style – feminine, but you can totally throw a leather jacket on top. Well, a year and a half later I’ve upgraded that same look with a new take on some black and white favorites. For our recent trip to Charleston, I wanted something upscale but not stuffy for dinners and cocktail hour. I opted for a full skirt (my favorite shape) and an off-the-shoulder blouse that shows some skin, while also letting me feel covered.
While switching it up is what fashion is all about – there’s something to be said for sticking to favorites that you feel work for you. What about you dolls? Is there a look you turn to over and over again?
So my date night looks have evolved quite a bit over the years. I remember in high school, it was low-rise jeans a dressy top. College years saw the height of my sundress obsession. Recently, my go-to date night look is a jumpsuit!
There’s something comfortable, yet so put together about a jumpsuit. In the past, I’ve worn strappy ones, long-sleeved ones, casual ones, and my latest is unique in it’s own right. I feel like this jumpsuit by Donna Morgan is a feminine and modern take on a tuxedo look. The black and white stunner has a dressy, strapless bodice and a wide, cropped leg. I love the dramatic and cascading ruffles that really take this look from simple to special. Lastly, I love the price!
To finish off my look, I added some glitzy and geometric earrings that really scream “Date Night!” All in all, this occasion look made a romantic evening in Charleston even more special. And… I didn’t break the bank!
Pink is my favorite color. Always has been, and I’m thinking it might aways be. In the past, I’ve been worried about looking too girly, or too saccharine – but with the resurgence of “millennial pink” I’m embracing my favorite shade!
Another trend that I’ve begun to love is the dressing in monochrome, one of various shades of the same color. So why not combine my two loves in this latest outfit!
Ironically, I feel wearing ALL pink adds more caché and less sweetness than a single pink piece. So I went all out! These gorgeous pink pants from Topshop were an absolute steal, and the sweater is the softest cashmere you’ll ever feel and less than $70 to boot!
I splurged a bit on the coat, but I feel that it’s worth it given the perfect shade of pastel pink and my tendency to wear coats for many years to come! Walking around the city, I felt heads turn to see a woman in an entirely bubblegum outfit…but in a good way! Lastly, I topped my look with a Parisian-inspired beret to add an extra layer of chic. What do you dolls think? Would you rock an entirely pink look?
