Support Live Musicians


So….it’s been a while. Sorry I’ve been so MIA for the past several weeks. First, I spent two weeks in Los Angeles shooting new commercials for work. It was such a fun experience, but I really wanted to dedicate myself to focusing on work, and unfortunately the blog had to take a back seat.


BUT, before I left for the sunshine and palm trees of LA, the lovely and talented Jacque agreed to shoot some of my new picks for Spring. I use the term Spring lightly, since there was still snow on the ground in New York. One of my absolute favorite purchases in recent months has been my Gucci Princetown loafers. They’re so comfortable and bring a boyish ease to any outfit. I love throwing them on with jeans and a tee (as seen here), or even a flowy midi dress. For this outfit, I paired my new loafers with a pair of high-waisted embroidered jeans and a graphic tee with a special message. If you can’t make out the words, the shirt reads “ Support Live Music, Hire Live Musicians.” Purchased at Imogene & Willie, a Nashville staple, the shirt is an ode their hometown and the spirit of music city. As the wife of a once struggling Nashville musician, the shirt really resonated. Not to mention, a portion of the proceeds are donated to a local Nashville music school for children of low-income families. Sold.


In addition to my trip to LA, I’ve had a lot of other changes that I’ve been working through. I’m excited to share the news that Jason and I have officially decided to move back to Atlanta! He’s accepted a new role that he’s excited about, and I’ll be transferring with my current agency. While it’s definitely bittersweet to be leaving New York, Jason and I are thrilled to start a new chapter. Who knows what the future holds, but we think this is the right move for our family and what we hope to achieve in the next couple of years. SO…that means we’ve been a bit preoccupied coordinating the move, figuring out work situations, and just overall planning to get ourselves back down South! I hope y’all can be patient with me if I’m a little slower to post for the next couple of weeks as we get settled. Thanks for bearing with me, and I’m excited about bringing Brown Paper Doll to Atlanta!

Winter White

Winter White Paper Doll
Winter white sounds like a good idea in theory. I love whites, creams, and neutrals together – and in the cold weather, it somehow looks even more chic! But in reality, a winter white outfit isn’t necessarily the most practical, especially living in New York. The grime of the city and the natural elements seem to instantly be attracted to white. I think that’s one of the reasons that they say black is a New Yorker’s uniform!
That being said, while home in Florida, I jumped at the chance to ditch my all-black and wear a wintery white look! Even though it was beyond sunny most days, there was still a little chill in the air that was perfect sweater weather. I wore my new Club Monaco sweater with a slightly cropped silhouette and tiered, ruffled sleeves. Rachel and I snagged this on an impromptu shopping trip in SoHo. Sometimes the unexpected shopping days are the ones where you find something you really love. This sweater is just that for me! I paired my sweater with Topshop distressed moto jeans. If you haven’t already, y’all have got to try these on! They’re my favorite! The high-waist, slightly cropped ankle and stretchy material make them so comfortable, but they don’t bag out! I love them.
To keep things neutral, I wore my all white with nude Stuart Weitzman nudist sandals and my new taupe Saint Laurent tote. I felt like I was serving some Kim Kardashian realness with this outfit! Jason and I spent the afternoon in one of my favorite neighborhoods in the city – San Marco. We admired the homes, did a little shopping, and stopped for ice cream when the sun got a bit warm. Overall, what a perfect day! AND, to top things off, I didn’t get any stains on the pristine white ‘fit. I’d call that a major success!

Lust List

New Year’s Eve 2016


Can you believe that 2017 is right around the corner? But before we ring in the new year, we have one more night of fabulous 2016 fashion… New Year’s Eve! I have to say, some years I simply want to sit on the couch and watch the ball drop with an order of Chinese food. But this year, I’m ready to get glammed up and hit the town!


New Year’s is such a fun night for fashion because you can break out that glitzy little number you’ve been saving for a special evening. Sequins and velvet, satin and lace…NYE is the perfect night to flaunt it!  Here are my picks for the perfect New Years outfit to meet 2017 in style!


1. Topshop Stud Ruffle Lace Dress.  A little black dress that’s fun and flirty, this hot number from Topshop is sure to turn heads! I love the studded detail that brings a bit of edge to the classic silhouette and lace overlay.  Plus, at this price, it’s the perfect party dress!


2. Topshop Disc Sequin Midi Dress.  Another Topshop pick, you’re sure to make an entrance in this disco-inspired midi dress. In a heavily embellished sequin gold, it comes with an all-over large disc design.  Featuring a high neck and subtle straps, it sexes things up with a slit up the front!


3. Mischa Collection Larrisa Blazer Dress.  This dress reminds me of an 80’s power-suit, and with the color…you’ll look white hot! I love the tuxedo look with the dramatic sleeves. In a sea of black and metallics on New Years Eve, you’ll be sure to stand out.


4. Laundry by Shelli Segal Ruched Velvet Sheath Dress.  A velvety on-trend take on the little black dress.  This dress will hug every curve, but also be comfortable for a night of dancing! Plus, this is simple enough that you can wear this to another event!


5. Michelle Mason Cami Wrap Mini Dress.  The coppery-champagne color of this satin mini wrap dress is to die for! Pair it with nude strappy heels for a show-stopping look!


6. Alice + Olivia Beaded Bodice Strapless Jumpsuit.  I’m all about the jumpsuits these days, and this is the perfect one for painting the town red.  Simple in its silhouette, it brings the drama with glistening beads on the embellished bodice.  Plus, with the cropped trouser legs, this jumpsuit will keep your legs warm but still show off those party heels!


And there you have it…my roundup of 2016 New Year’s ensembles! Do you dolls have any special plans for ringing in the new year? Let me know in the comments below!
