The Oxford Shirtdress

Cuyana must have read my mind because I've been on the hunt for the perfect shirtdress. When it comes to the classics, cut, silhouette and quality are so important, and this cotton Oxford style dress has just the right combination of borrowed from the boys and feminine chic. It's a "throw it on and go" kind of dress, and at $130, I know the cost-per-wear will come down to pennies in just a few months. Two words: effortless style.

6 Questions with Philadelphia Magazine

A few weeks ago I met with Marina, a lovely editor at Philadelphia Magazine, for a fun mini photo shoot and interview as part of their "Conversations of Style" series. We chatted over lattes about personal style, what my dream career would be (if I wasn't a designer) & what I'm loving for fall. I'm so excited to share that the short but sweet interview is up on their website! It might be the coolest bit of press yet.

Transitional Style: The Fisherman Sweater

I love buying pieces that I can wear season after season, and the fisherman sweater is one of those classics that I've been finding myself earmarking on Pinterest. It's the perfect transitional piece from summer (think chilly nights on the beach) to fall (think layers) and can be just as cool as it is preppy. For summer, wear it at night with denim cut-offs for an easy, beachy look. For fall, layer it up with a button down and distressed jeans, or pair it with coated denim or an a-line skirt.
