OOTD: Pleats and Posies

 

This dress gets filed into my personal “business drag” collection, the section of my closet devoted to things I would costume myself in to fit in to another person’s board room, a nerve-wracking meeting, or a pitch.

It could easily be an anemic selection of black pencil skirts and blazers, silk-blend button-down shirts, khaki creased slacks and nude pantyhose, but I like my more conservative pieces to still turn heads. This Black Dahlia dress from Hello Holiday (of course) is one of my favorites of the moment. The print is interesting, but what I love most is the thoughtful pleating. The knife pleating on the skirt creates optical illusion vibes, and the single box pleat down the front of the bodice makes it look almost like a button-up. It also comes with a matching belt.

    That dress is super flattering, and I love the punch of color from the shoes!

What’ I’ve Learned: Marketing on Blogs and Social Media in 2014

Barbara Soderlin, a reporter for the Omaha-World Herald, recently contacted me for some comment about local companies advertising with bloggers in Omaha and we ended up having a really rich discussion about the changing landscape of online advertising in an age of social media. She had seen me post on Facebook about the decline of blogs as the epicenter of reader engagement in favor of other platforms that ask a little less of its users.

New at Hello Holiday: Dear Creatures Fall!

Dear Creatures is by far a favorite brand for our customers. I’m excited about every new piece we have from this LA-based husband/wife designer duo. Bianca and Rob describe their line as “visual optimism,” and I love how they blend their expert understanding of decades past with the sensibilities and whimsy of the modern woman.
