The beautiful stars of Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black” sat front row and enjoyed the festivities surrounding Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. One of the main actresses, Uzo Aduba (also known as “Crazy Eyes”) caught my attention when she arrived at the Vivienne Tam fashion show wearing a bright red A-line dress with black honey-comb designs. Uzo’s red hot look is appropriate to wear during office hours as well as after-work events. To achieve this look for work, shop for knee-length dress that won’t rise when sitting at your desk. I’ve provided a few work-appropriate dresses below from ModCloth and Macy’s. Don’t forget to shop outlet stores as well if you’re looking for a bargain.

Wearing Happiness

Yellow is my favorite color. It’s the color of all things happy. A bunch of sunflowers kept me in a yellow mood and helped me start my day, even on those mornings when I just wanted to stay in bed.

This yellow eyelet dress from Old Navy is one of my summer favorites. I can’t help but be in a good mood when I’m in it. It just feels like I’m wearing happiness. So, don’t be surprised if you catch me wearing it over and over again this season. Wear something that makes you smile this week!

Sherria’s Spring Wish List

by Sherria

The sun is finally starting to shine here on the East Coast and it’s putting me in “shopping mode.” Since I already have a ton of clothing in my closet from last spring, I’m planning to add only a few small accessories and dresses to my spring/summer wardrobe. I believe that small accessories can be mix and matched with the same outfit to create a totally different look (FYI: It’s also more economical than purchasing more clothes).

Below are three of my top picks to add to a spring wardrobe:

Kealla Wedge Sandal (ALDO, $65)

Navy Enamel Bezel Silicone Metro Watch (Kate Spade, $175)

Botanical Woven Dress (Forever 21, $19.90)

 

Sherria’s Style File: Jazz Age Lawn Party

by Sherria 

On Sunday,  I attended the Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s Island in New York. Party-goers from all over the city came the small island dressed in 1920’s vintage clothing, danced to the sounds of Michael Arenella’s Dreamland Orchestra and enjoyed a variety of food, drinks and activities. This  year, I opted for a simple cream lace dress and vintage-inspired jewelry.

Below is my Style File:

Of course, I had to throw on a quirky mustache to layer with my mother’s pearls.

Mustache Charm Necklace (Forever 21, $5.80)

The Victorian Woman ring is the most “vintage looking” accessory that I wore. Unfortunately, I don’t remember where it was purchased. However, Amazon.com and Victoria’s Jewelry Box might be a good place to start if you’re looking for more authentic-looking pieces.
