Minimal-Black ft. White (w/ Madora Heels)

Happy Friday and cheers to the weekend everyone!

As we transition into the fall weather, I’m glad that I can finally restyle my summer pieces by adding layers. As the temperature drops, I love transitioning into a neutral color palette. I decided to keep the base color of my outfit black so the color white could stand out and make the shoes and vest pop.

I was recently sponsored by Madora, it’s an online shopping app from San Franciso that is geared towards women to shop in a personalized store of shoes and bags. I decided to pick out a pair of heels that had a more clean, contemporary feel to it. The shopping experience for me was easy because I knew what style I was looking for. They have quite a large selection but they can pick out items to specifically match you, your life, and your style. They have a large variety from vintage inspired shoes to basic must-haves to glitzier night-out heels. Madora also does a really great job with responding to emails and keeping you updated about your package. I absolutely love my heels. I’m really into bold pieces and I like how the black and white straps a unique touch. Personally, I don’t wear open-toed heels a lot but these were so comfortable. I love how the heels are easy to walk in because its chunkier, shorter, shape and the ankle strap is my favorite part. I hope you like the way I style the heels! I decided to play around with the contemporary vibe so I feel like different cuts and lengths of clothing helps achieve a more minimal look, but I mainly made sure that my top and dress pants were more fitted.

Derby Chic

Hello Everyone!

I had such an amazing time this past week at the Nasher Sculpture Center’s Garden Party! This was my very first year attending and there was so much to enjoy! There was amazing food from Wolfgang Puck Catering, beautiful contemporary sculptures to adore, music by DJ Lucy Wrubel, and rose-gold champagne to sip. The show stopper for the night was a beautiful Stanley Korshak fashion show featuring stunning gowns!

The attire was “Derby Chic” and honestly, I did feel a little bit under-dressed at this party since some people were wearing gorgeous gowns and intricate Derby hats. I went for an overall “classic vintage” look so I stuck with black for my color palette. I played up my look with lace, diamonds, and of course, red lipstick! The overall look was very simple but elegant and the lower cut lace front of the dress was something different that I’ve never tried before. I was actually able to thrift my dress so I’m not sure what brand it is! I tend to get very lucky with thrift shopping so I find various deals and this dress was only $12! The hat I wore was really large but comfortable but the evening was a little bit hotter than I intended. I can’t wait until next year to fully plan out an outfit and maybe opt for lighter blush colors! I think I’ve been way too excited for fall lately so I’m quickly rushing into the darker tones in my closet haha. Unfortunately, it got dark very quickly so we didn’t get to take many pictures!
