In The Navy

Hello Darling Readers,

As Carrie Bradshaw once said about the seasons in New York, overnight they just seem to "click". It appears that Autumn (or perhaps Indian Summer) is upon us and it's time to start layering our looks. 

In today's post, I am giving the #threewaystowear treatment to a fabulous navy, crepe dress from Cos. Cos is a British store that has recently opened a branch in Soho, NYC. I love their pieces - structural and androgynous and always cool. Check them out.

Here it is divas.

#1 Wear with flatforms and statement jewellery. 

#2 For a more feminine take on it, wear with a vintage jacket and vintage shoes and even throw over a vintage belt to accentuate your waist. (I bought this jacket when I was 18 and I can still fit into it despite my well known penchant for cheeseburgers #winning #itsboundtocatchupwithmesoon)

#3 For a more chilly day, wear over jeans with boots and add a turban why not. Very Patricia Neal in Breakfast At Tiffany's. "CAT!"

And finally, if you find my body floating in the Hudson you can assume he did it:

Have a great week darlings. 

Never give up.

Dore Runway Show SS16

Hello Fashionistas,

Unless you've been living under a rock here in NYC, you'll know it's Fashion Week. Yesterday my trusty right hand man Denton and I attended the Dore Runway Show at the gorgeous Gramercy Park Hotel.

We quaffed prosecco and noshed on teeny tiny (aka model-sized) bacon sandwiches and saw the latest collection. As we entered the terrace we were greeted by about twenty models standing around on cubes. A touch disconcerting but we soon settled in and started to mingle with the fashionistas in attendance. Check out the photos below.

Happy #NYFW all.

Last of the Summer Outfits

Hello Fashionistas,

Happy Tuesday to you all. It seems like summer is finally cooling off here in NYC and I'm already eyeing up all of the Autumn-wear in the stores that I can't afford. #artistproblems #sendfreestuff

So, to honour the last days of summer, here is an adorable Topshop onesie dressed up #threewaystowear

Love to you all Darlings!

#1 Wear over a stripey t-shirt, with red shoes and a bow in your hair. (A little matchy-matchy sure, but who cares I look like an adorable cupcake.)

#2 Dress the look up with a red jacket and tie a vintage scarf around your hair into a turban - instant glamour!

#3 Add a vintage cropped jacket and vintage lace gloves (these were my great grandmother's!!) for a romantic vibe.

For those of you who know me, you know I LOVE to eat. With that in mind here is the final shot:

Mmmmmm Bagels.......

Fashion Blogger Brunch

Hello Darlings,

Last sunday I somehow managed to finagle my way into the fashion blogger brunch hosted by Sylvia at 40plusstyle

We noshed on eggs and mimosas at a darling cafe on the Bowery and in attendance were some of my absolute fashion heros. I was the baby of the group, so I listened attentively to the discussion about all things fashion, style and the business of blogging. As well as Sylvia, making up the seriously fabulous table were; Jean and Valerie aka the Idiosyncratic Fashionistas, Lyn aka the Accidental Icon and Suzanne Carillo

Here are a few snaps, taken by the (self-proclaimed) king of the table, my dearest Denton Taylor who is apparently the fashion bloggers photog of choice. Get him whilst he's hot fellow blogstars!

#Threewaystowear coming back to you next week with a cheeky little NYFW post in there too.

Love to you all my darlings!

RD xoxo
