What I Wore: Happy New Year’s

I love any reason to get dressed up and New Year’s is the perfect excuse. I spotted this pretty little lacy dress at Macy’s the day after Christmas. It was marked with a tag that read, “One of a kind. 50% off.” What a coincidence, those are two of my favorite things to hear when it comes to shopping for a special occasion dress! The good news is that this dress may have been “One of a kind” at the store I was in however, it is available online and it’s a steal at $38.99.

Hey everyone!

When I was in NYC last month I had the pleasure of meeting Beck of Manfattan. She was the one who took these photos, and she is seriously awesome. After we shot some street style around the tents we decided to have a romantic Mexican dinner across the street from Lincoln Center. It was awesome hearing about her amazing life, and we hit it off right away.

So yes, I admit this outfit was from a month ago, I just kept forgetting to post it! I got this blazer from forever 21, and if you know me (and my company) you probably know I have a sweet spot for black and white. ;) The necklace is vintage, pants are from forever 21, and the boots are old ModCloth. 

I hope you have a great weekend!! I am working hard getting the two other dresses from Zaftig created! :) Cannot wait to show the final products to you!

What I Wore: Thanksgiving in Maine

Ahh, there is nothing like being in my hometown of Portland, Maine. I was so grateful to be able to head up there to celebrate Thanksgiving and this is what I wore!

For this ensemble I threw together a handful of my current favorites, all of which have a leather aspect. The dress is c/o Asos Curve and is a major must! The tartan and faux leather jacket is c/o MYNT 1792. I capped the outfit off with my new Torrid boots that I am sure you will be seeing a lot more of on my blog!

Until next time,

Beck

What I Wore: Forest Green

Everyone, meet my natural hair texture. It’s a crazy mess but it’s what I’m working with… so I’m into it. Anyway, today I donned these separates that I am equally in love with! This top, from Yours Clothing, is actually very long and I will definitely be wearing it as a dress with leggins very soon. This skirt is the perfect full-bodied piece that can either go casual or dressy. And together they are even better… in my opinion!

What I Wore: Evening via Instagram [@manfattan]

One of my best friends from my hometown, Maine, is visiting me in NYC.  We decided to hit the town. 

I wore this striped Lane Bryant dress! Who says big girls can’t wear stripes anyway?! I paired it with some tights from Just My Size and blue suede wedges from Payless (Yay! for Payless carrying size 13). 

I have received several questions lately about my height and measurements. I’m 6'3… so obviously this dress is a bit shorter on me than the average gal! I range from a size 22-26 depending on where I am shopping. 

Thank you for all your feedback.

Until next time,

Beck

What I Wore: Longline Vest

As most of you know, I’m a tall girl at 6'3, so when I see the word ‘long’ in the description of a clothing item it piques my interest! I was ecstatic to see that longline vests are a hot item this season and immediately fell in love with this one from MYNT 1792.

This vest is extremely versatile. It looks great open and layered over just about anything but I also love it zipped up and worn as a top!

The skirt was a bargain from Conway and the shoes were snagged from Nordstom RACK! The lipstick is from Illamasqua in the shade Growl.

Until next time,

Beck

What I Wore: Ready for the Holiday

I’m so excited to go home to Maine for Christmas that I have already started packing. The first two things I immediately knew I needed to bring along with me were this amazing cobalt blue jacketed with faux leather detail from Jessica London and this Lane Bryant faux leather dress. I plan to wear these bad boys with a pair of pumps to an upcoming holiday party!

What I Wore: Swing Dress

I am so excited about this Swing Dress c/o Asos! I have tried on a couple dresses in this style but none have fit just right until now. It drapes perfectly and I love the color block.

I’ve been searching for an all black simple winter jacket and was pumped to find this Calvin Klein bad boy at Burlington Coat Factory! The shoes are last season from Ashley Stewart.

The bumblebee necklace is c/o Boohoo and this amazing nail polish is from Ruffian which came in the Birchbox I received at LuckyFabb! Also, don’t mind the $ on my hand… I still write reminders on my hand like a little kid.

Until next time,

Beck
