Red Dots

I made it back from Nashville! We had so much fun, can’t believe I’d never been there before.

A few weeks back we went to see one of my good friends from high school, Elena, perform in an opera burlesque show – so cool! She’s an amazing opera singer.

I wore a pair of my favorite Old Navy Pixie Pants in this adorable red dot pattern, paired with an old open weave sweater and this denim jacket that is sooooo soft.

Thanks for stopping by, happy hump day!

Black and White and Red all Over

We had a beautiful Sunday in Brooklyn last weekend and headed out for brunch with friends. It was a little cool, but warm enough to wear this great sweater without an extra layer.

I’m headed to Nashville tomorrow for my annual girl’s trip – I’ll be back next week!

Remember – Life is Short, Shop Often! : )

Yellow and Stripes

We had a beautiful day here last week and my hubby came home just in time to take some pictures before I headed out to meet my friend Alice for cocktails in the West Village.

I took advantage of the warmth to break out some bare legs, and threw my must have trench over this look for when the sun went down.

This striped dress is perfect on its own or with some added layers – and it’s such a great deal!

Thanks for stopping by!

Polka Dot Paradise with Rent the Runway

I was so excited to get to wear this Jill Stuart polka dot dress from Rent the Runway this weekend! I had first tried it on at their Soho shop when I was looking for a dress to wear to a wedding in Sonoma. I went with another gorgeous dress for the wedding, but was keeping this one in mind for something else. I decided my Chi Omega sorority founder’s day celebration was the perfect opportunity to rent it, as it is a fabulous evening event at The Met.

I had so much fun with all of my NYC alumnae sisters, and felt fabulous in this dress! I really regret waiting so long to use Rent the Runway. I’ve even signed up for their Pro program that is just $29.95 for the year and covers your shipping and insurance on all rentals, and includes a $50 credit for your birthday! So basically it more than pays for itself. The shipping and insurance costs are what held me back from ordering before, and now that problem is solved.

Dresses start at just $30 now, so are totally affordable, and you get 2 sizes to ensure a great fit. There are also more casual dresses from designers like Kate Spade available, so you can find something for any occasion. Seriously, if you haven’t used them yet, get to it!

New to Rent the Runway? Then be sure to use code 25OOFNEW at checkout because you’ll get $25 off your first order of $75+!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

*I was given a discount for doing this post, but as always, all opinions are my own – I really am sort of obsessed with renting dresses now!

Lace, Leather, and Red

Happy Friday!

I’ve been a little slow on the posting here but be sure to follow me on Instagram @denimanddotsnyc and Facebook – I post there a lot more regularly! I include a lot of recipe recommendations too.

Last Friday we went to see our final New York Pops at Carnegie Hall show for the season – a tribute to Frank Sinatra. It was fabulous! I decided it was the perfect occasion to glam it up and pulled out this two-piece dress I picked up at Piperlime on clearance. I’m so sad they are closing!! I love the combo of leather and lace mixed in this dress.

The great thing about a two-piece dress (a bit of an oxymoron, I know) is that it wears as a dress with the pieces together but you can mix those pieces into other outfits too – win, win!

This outfit is no longer available but I found you a fab Vince Camuto two piece dress that is very similar, and it’s on sale! Top here, Skirt here.

And I’m so glad I added my favorite red mid-heel pumps for a pop of color, along with a red lip. Sole Society has made this style even better with some gorgeous scalloped detailing – I’m dying to get these in hot pink now!

We got a new camera that my husband is enjoying playing with, so hoping I can provide better pictures at least most of the time now!

The Perfect Spring Sweater and Trench

So we’ve been having a cool spring but I am so over my wool and puffer coats! What is a girl to do? I decided a classic trench with a removable liner would be a good investment that I could wear to transition from winter to spring. So happy I found this great one from London Fog on sale! The quality is fabulous, definitely worth more than the $132 price tag. Get one while you can!

I was also excited to come across this sweater at Banana Republic that is perfect for both spring and fall, and even cool nights in the summer thanks to the open weave on the arms. It looks so cute with any denim, white jeans, red jeans, and black pants – lots of options!

And last but not least open toe booties – I was doubtful at how useful these would be but I’ve given in and I love them!

Thanks to my hubby for taking some outdoor pics for me and thanks to all of you for stopping by!

Loft 50% off plus free shipping!

Ending today so don’t wait! They rarely do this, usually you have to spend $125 for free shipping, so the free shipping with no minimum is a great deal. And while they often have 40% off, 50% off definitely sweetens the pot. Use code CYBER50.

I am a big fan of Loft denim and these jeans are the perfect compromise between a boyfriend and a skinny.

Old Navy Dress Haul

Aren’t dresses just the best? You throw one piece on, maybe add a little jacket and some jewelry and you are out the door. No figuring out proportions and which piece goes with what. And nothing better to keep you cool on a sweltering subway platform. Well no sweltering going on yet, but I’m nothing if not prepared, and I’ve been stocking up on some spring and summer dresses from Old Navy for fabulously low prices! I tend to always order online from Old Navy as they almost always have an extra percentage off there, as well as free shipping and returns for purchases over $50.

Some purchases have gone back, but here is what I’m keeping with sizing info. All of these are on sale now and you can get an additional 35% off today, no code needed!

Jersey Shift Dress – unfortunately this print is out of stock now, but they have it in some cute solids and a stripe! I’m wearing a medium – this dress is less forgiving, I would suggest sizing up unless you want it to be very tight.

ON5

Lace Overlay Ponte-knit Sheath Dress – this is the perfect summer LBD and could even be worn with tights now if you are in a cooler climate. I’m wearing a small.

ON2

Sleeveless Ponte Knit Sheath dress – love the nautical stripe here and pockets! I think this would be perfect for an office setting with a white or navy blazer. I’m wearing a small and may get it hemmed just a bit  (I’m 5’5) .

ON1

 

Striped Ponte Knit Shift Dress – this dress is a little less shapely than the others, but I got such a good deal on it I’m just going to have the tailor nip in the waist a bit, easy fix. It also comes in a navy stripe that is adorable! I love it, or any of these dresses, with this cute cropped denim jacket I picked up at Loft – now 40% off. The denim is so soft and comfortable! Wearing a small.

ON3

 

Sleeveless Poplin Shift Dress – this dress is super light and airy, and I love the color and print. Also great paired with a denim jacket or a white blazer.

ON6

 

Happy shopping and have a great weekend!
