And just like that we’re heading towards fall…

Summer 2014 was a blast. Lots of weddings and travel and fun. Here are some of my favorite #tessdressed moments.IMG_0371

50 Dresses lace and fringe tunic over a Victoria’s Secret tube dress. J. Crew heels, and a Bijou Van Ness headpiece. Vintage gold clutch finishes the outfit for Hannah’s wedding.

Fun quick trip to Vegas for a great wedding at the Neon Museum.

Traveled in Banana Republic coated black jeans, Gil Torres booties, S.W.O.R.D. leather jacket, fancy Magaschoni cashmere hoodie sweater, vintage silk scarf, Brixton hat, Kate Spade purse, and a fantastic new leather trunk carry on with vintage detailing.

Wore a Leifsdottir black dress and Aldo nude heels to the nuptials.

Loved debuting my new 50 Dresses lace and fringe tunics! Available in black and white, this versatile piece can layer over a solid first layer for a more modest streetwear look, or stands on it’s own as a bikini cover-up!  Blender’s Monte Carlo sunglasses are my new favorite eye protection. Lululemon top and Midori Bikinis Wild Hearts bottom complete my beach wear look. Also loving my new GiBlack sea green abarcas! They continue to be my favorite summer shoe.

New Tunic

Found this J. Crew tunic at the thrift shop a while back- it is an odd garment that skates the line between shirt and dress. It is great gauzy cotton voile and was brand new- what a find! The Gap red pants are also thrifted then custom tapered at the bottom. Taupe GiBlack abarcas and Blenders sunglasses finish my very comfortable work look.

 

Errand ready

20130717-115631.jpgI read an article once where Angelina Jolie talked about her favorite staple black dresses she would sleep in and then wear during the day. This Norma Kamali for Walmart racerback jersey number is exactly that. I am usually against jersey dresses (they always need a slip since they show everything), but when a morning involved trips to the hospital, trips to the vet, and watering in the garden, it comes to this. Also worn with H&M jacket, Blenders, and original Havaianas. I ordered the Brazilian flag emblazoned flip flops in 2003 FROM BRAZIL before the company even had US distribution. They are great for running errands.
