Think Pink!

Greetings Fashion Geeks,

It's another steamy day here in NYC - the perfect excuse to IV iced coffee all day long (like I need an excuse). 

Today on the blog it's all about pink. This made me think of the fabulous musical number from the film Funny Face, called "Think Pink". Watch it here - it's like a a camp, musical, version of The Devil Wears Prada....on crack.....covered in glitter. 

Here is today's dress #threewaystowear

Have a wonderful, latte-filled day!

#1 Let a dress like this shine. Add some super high heels and dance around in the street because, you know, that's normal...

#2 To give the dress a more 60's feel, I clipped in the underdress and let the lace fall like a cape. I added a little bow to my hair and some leopard print shoes. Oh, and you know how I feel about big necklaces....

#3 Belt the dress and add a ridiculous petticoat - as you know, fashion isn't fashion without a little of the ridiculous thrown in.

Dress: H&M
Outfit One: Shoes: Forever 21
Outfit Two: Shoes: Forever 21, Necklace & Hair Bow: Primark
Outfit Three: Petticoat: Vintage, Shoes: Necessary Clothing, Hat: Forever 21

Grayson Clothing - Part One

Hello Fashionistas,

Today I am very excited to share with you my collaboration with the new clothing brand Grayson. They specialise in junior (stop laughing bitches) fashions at awesome prices. 

Last week I was lucky enough to receive two items from their current collection. Here is the first: a sweet, striped, cropped top - showcased here in my #threewaystowear

My model today is the actress Catharine League, who played Fredrika in 'A Little Night Music' with me in Palm Beach. Catharine is currently working at Disney World playing Ariel in the Little Mermaid. She is also a figure-skating-diva. Check out her video at the end of this post.
Here she is, enjoy darlings! Oh and check out Friday's post to see the other item they sent me, modeled by another actress from the show, Cristina Flores.

#1 Wear with a vintage petticoat. (Gone-With-The-Wind-chic?) The black booties give it a more modern feel "Flatley my dear, I don't riverdance" 

#2 For a forties nod, wear with high waisted linen trousers and an adorable headscarf. Catharine The Riveter ladies and gentlemen:

#3 For a more elegant look, wear with a satin wrap-around skirt and the obligatory Louboutins. Accesorise with palm trees, natch.

A big Thank You to Grayson Clothing and Catharine my model. 
Visit their website here and you can follow them on social media on these links:instagramfacebooktwitter and pinterest

Before I leave you, here is Catharine being ridiculously good at figure skating. Stop having so many talents dammit #upstager

Palm Beach Vintage Adventures

Hello Fashionistas,

Happy Friday darlings. Today on the blog I have a special guest, my cast-mate from 'A Little Night Music', Brittany Baratz. Brittany is the fabulous high soprano of our show and could be described as Joan Collins meets a Jewish grandma:  glamourous, always ready with a zinger and often providing the dressing room with sage words of wisdom. Check out her website to learn more about her talents and to see some video of her in action. 

As I continue to raid the costume department here at the theatre, I am finding some fabulous, and very Palm Beachy, gems. Here is Brittany modeling some of these vintage treasures. 

#1 Check out this awesome 1960's dress, worn with a turban and huge sunglasses....poolside naturally....

#2 This fabulous jacket is a old-lady statement piece of it's own. It's tropical print contains flowers and birds and is perfect thrown of jeans and a t-shirt for a more modern look 

#3 In case you were missing me readers, here I am up a tree (where else?) wearing a gorgeous skirt taken from a recent Le Liaisons Dangereuses production and worn with a crop top and sneakers

My thanks to darling Brittany for being such a fab model.

Oh and in case you thought I had made it through a photo shoot without doing something ridiculous, here is a photo of me falling out of the tree....

Keeping it classy
