Fenway Park

Over the weekend, my BBF (Best Blogger Friend) the Bostonista and I had the chance to attend A Sip in the Park, which was a fundraiser for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

This shindig for a great cause was held at Fenway Park. 150 guests enjoyed wine and beer tastings, great food, and a silent auction benefiting AFSP in the EMC Club high above the diamond.

I think this event was particularly significant because suicide claims the lives of thousands of Americans each year (an estimated 36,000, to be exact) and has a profound effect on those who knew them, but is something that people really don't want to - or know how to - talk about. It was great to have an event that recognizes the devastating effects but that is really about turning it all around by uniting and having a wonderful evening to provide support to fund it's prevention. You can learn more about ASFP here.

There's something so magical about a breezy spring evening in an empty ballpark, under the glow of the Citgo sign:

Worked and Re-worked

I wore this origami dress on a warm night a few weeks ago at the DressCode Boston Menswear Fashion Show, and today I threw a digitally-printed cropped blouse on top to give it a much more mod, casual look.

Sheer Madness

Leaving something to the imagination is overrated. Black and white lace gets X-rated -- But only in the name of Fashion!

High vs Low - My Dream Spring Dresses

If I could have two dresses this season:

The Long Adrianne Dress from Daniela Corte

And this Flower Print Tailored Shift from Zara:

Both are absolute, fitted, flowered perfection, completely ladylike, and impossibly polished. I love the idea of having a closet full of amazing, lovingly-made pieces from local (extremely talented) designers who you could run into on a stroll on Newbury, along with some High Street items as well. Each has it's merit!

I'll be dreaming about these tonight!


Behind the Scenes at the Stuff Magazine Style Issue Cover Shoot

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of styling some familiar faces here in Boston for the cover story of Stuff Magazine's Spring Style Issue. In all the excitement, I had the chance to sneak a few behind-the-scenes cell-phone photos of some of the ladies getting into character for their Fantasy Makeovers.

So, what have we learned here today? Attitude (and some decent styling!) is everything! And, we should all play dress-up every now and then.
