Can I just say how lucky we are to live in a city that is so into fashion? I’ve lived in other places and very few outside of New York, Los Angeles and Chicago are as obsessed with being at the forefront of the fashion world as we are. “Amen to that,” I say. What prompted that comment is that as I scout the local stores for trends I keep finding the coolest pieces. What makes them cool you ask? Well, they’re unique, on trend, made well and incredibly attractive (i.e. beautiful, cute, sexy, feminine, etc). With that said, check out this Sine dress from Kacky & Carl ($298). What I love about dresses, besides keeping me cool during the hot Dallas summer, is that they can usually be worn either casually or dressed up, depending on how they are acessorized. It’s like getting two outfits in one. For a dressier ensemble, we found these awesome Jessica Simpson shoes to go with it. Yep, Jessica Simpson. I like them. And you do too. You just won’t admit it. To complete the outfit, snag this nude Virginie Castaway purse from Mine for $44.
