Needing, Wanting, Loving: Slip Dresses for Spring

Spring has almost sprung which has me thinking about cute wardrobe updates for the warmer weather.  The slip dress is no new phenomena (who could forget Kate Moss's sheer slipdress circa 1993) and has staying power for good reason- it's universally flattering, works for multiple occasions, and is simultaneously comfortable and sexy.  Wear it to work by layering on a sweater or jacket, pair it with heels and statement earrings for night, or throw on sandals and sunnies for a casual weekend outing.


Dress it down...




Dress it up...




Throwing on a blazer over your slip dress makes it instantly work-ready:


Here's a perfect way to dress down the slip dress:  pair it with a tailored leather jacket and sneakers:


...Or with a cardigan and booties:


Of course for me, since I'm short (5' 2"), I love a mini slip dress (this one is cute, too!)






In the market for a slip dress of your own?  NastyGal has an excellent selection at very reasonable prices.  And here are a few more I just adore...




Happy ALMOST spring!

XOXO,

I'm Into That

Now that the sun is starting to flirt with me again and I've been finding more opportunities to dig in my handbag and find my long lost sunglasses, my mood has begun to improve.  Needless to say, January and February crept by for me in New York.  I try not to complain, but I'm someone who thrives in warmer weather.  My mood is better, I have more energy, and I just feel lighter.   This past weekend I finally made it over to see the Andy Warhol "From A to Z and Back Again" exhibition at the Whitney and I was energized by all the color.  

It reminded me of Jeffrey Bilhuber's punchy chartreuse living room in Locust Valley, NY:


A leopard jacket (or here) paired with black heart-shaped glasses is always going to be a "yes" in my book:


Australian interior and textile designer Anna Spiro has had me captivated for years.  I love her attention to happy detail, especially when it includes fabric lampshades:


Adoring this outfit, the beanie, and the sunglasses.  Tres chic.


Louise Johansen's home in Denmark is making me wish my 23 and me results came back with more Scandanavian in my DNA.  How cheery is her home?!


Officially smitten with La Double J, a Milanese brand that was the brainchild of J.J. Martin.   Everything the Italian company designs screams happy, mod, and chic:


Another thing giving me LIFE is 305 Fitness.  If you live in NY (or LA, DC, Boston), get yourself to a class immediately.  It's a cardio dance workout with a live DJ spinning music in the room. I saw a girl wearing a bandana in her ponytail at a class a few months back and found it to be the cutest thing ever, so obviously had to start doing it myself (I wear this one in navy).  I love the bandana look for everyday outfits, too:



Don't even get me started on how in to Rebecca de Ravenel's home I am.  It's borderline obsession.


When I see a room like this, I know there must be a God:



Heart eyes x 10.

Happy Tuesday all....  

XOXO,

Sam
