One Piece, Five Ways- Christy's Dress

My girl Christy is going to a fancy wedding in a fancy castle in fancy Italy and needed a fancy outfit to look fancy...but not too fancy. Despite its location, the wedding itself is not formal, so Christy bought this fabulous dress from Nordstrom. Fancy, right? It looks GREAT on her.  I love it.

Christy's next task is to put together an entire look for the wedding. She must wear a hat, so she'll probably start with that since they are so hard to find and build her look around both the hat and dress.

I came up with five inspiration sets that she can pull from when she's shopping for accessories. What do you think? Once I started to play around with it, I found that the dress is actually very versatile. It's a great dress to wear to church, a wedding, a baby shower or just for a Saturday afternoon of shopping and lunching! Great choice, Christy!

Pick My Parkers!

I've been noticing some blurriness of vision and I figure I'll have to get some specs soon, so I decided to give Warby Parker a go.

Have you heard of these folks? They make the most brilliant retro frames and give a pair to someone in need for each pair they sell! They're like TOMS shoes for eyeballs! Brilliant, right?

Here's what else.  Not only do they do social good; they do consumer good, too!  Because they sell directly to the consumer and bypass the retailer, they are able to sell each gorgeous pair of glasses (including prescription lenses) at $95!  Annnnd, hold on to your crazy straws, people!  They offer free home try-ons!  What?  Yes!  You can order 5 frames to try out for 5 days, free of charge.

These are some of the try-ons I'm playing with.  What do you think?

If you're looking for some sweet glasses, do yourself a favor and head over to Warby Parker and join their Facebook group to get help picking your Parkers and to see how other people rock theirs!
