Summer into Winter – Atlantic Plumbing – 02.09.2017

Turtleneck by Splendid; Dress by Tibi; Purse by Coach; Jacket by Zadig & Voltaire; Boots by Tabitha Simmons

Politiquette Tip:

One way I stretch my wardrobe out is by layering summer pieces so that they work in the winter.  Wearing a black turtleneck under my dress allows for an entirely different look.  You can see the difference from the summer look here.

Winter Denim – Watermelon House – 02.07.2017

Top by Marques Almeida (old; similar); Skirt by Asos; Bag by Coach (c/0); Jacket by Gap; Shoes by Vince Camuto (old)

Politiquette Tip:

Inspired by street style, I have recently integrated a denim jacket into my winter wardrobe. To stay seasonally appropriate, I purchased a jacket with shearling/sherpa details.  There are many “winter” denim jackets available right now with details like flannel, velvet, leather etc.  I have worn this jacket for fancy dinners and to walk the dog.  I think its a very versatile piece that can definitely go to the office to give some edge to a more polished look.

Consignment Finds – The Bird – 1.26.17

Dress by Tory Burch; Purse by Judith Leiber (vintage); Earrings by J.Crew; Jacket by Banana Republic; Boots by Kate Spade (old)

Politiquette Tip:

Shopping at consignment stores is a great way to expand your wardrobe on a budget.  It is also a way to find unique pieces that you won’t find anywhere else.  I found the featured Judith Leiber bag at 2nd Time Around in Georgetown and I absolutely love it.

Timing is Everything – 12.22.2016

Sweater by Zara // Shoes by Tabitha Simmons // Purse by Proenza Schouler // Jeans by J. Brand // Top by Splendid

Tibi, one of my favorite designers, made a great sweater with little fur pompoms on it this Fall.  By the time I got my act together to purchase it, the sweater was sold out.  I was really bummed out, but decided it must not be meant to be.  Then, I was perusing the Zara website and saw this fun sweater.  While it is definitely not the same, it is still covered in pompoms and fun to wear – what I was really going for!

Politiquette Tip: Sometimes timing allows you to find something equally great AND that costs less!
