First, I have some fun news! VoiceBoks selected me as one of the Top 50 Moms Who Blog About Fashion & Beauty. How cool, right? Over the next month or so, they are soliciting votes for the top 10, and I would surely love to win one of those top 10 spots! If you don’t mind, I would love for you to vote for me as one of your favorites. Thanks in advance for all your votes!!
About my outfit today, I mentioned a few weeks back that a friend and I spent an awesome, whirlwind weekend in New York City planned around a day of watching tennis at the US Open. I shared then that we spent some time shopping and popped into a couple of consignment stores including Greene Street Consignment in SOHO. This proved to be a perfect shop for my taste and price point. They stock some higher-end designer items but a majority of their wares fell into a nice middle price point for me. I struggle at consignment stores filled to the brim with top-notch designers because the secondhand price still exceeds my budget.
This simple black, white and blue wrap dress ended up being my score for this shopping trip. I have no trouble wearing black and blue together; I wore another similar color combination last week. Oddly enough though, I feel like this color combination violated fashion rules not long ago. Who knows… I am definitely not the expert, so I will sit pretty knowing that it works now and I drank the kool-aid.
