GET THE LOOK :: THE WHITE SHIRTDRESS

get-the-look---white-shirt-dress-for-spring

There aren’t many pieces in the closet more classic than the white button-up – that I think we can all agree on. But how are you all feeling about the white shirtdress? I remember seeing Leandra bravely rocking hers at fashion week last September and thinking… I love it. But, it takes some guts (and […]

    What timing with this post. This weekend I was watching an interview with an older actress who was wearing one of these with black nylons and all I could think was that it looked like she is missing her pants and when she stands up her undies will show!
    I think a belt would go a long way, however, I do like the one maneater is wearing, the bow is very cute and makes it look more like a dress.

      I’m totally with you – and black nylons would make it look even more strange in my opinion! They are tricky and need to be done really well. The problem with a belt, of course, is that it shortens an already short piece, but there are some nice, longer ones that look less like a large shirt and more like a purposeful dress, which is what I’d lean towards – especially if you’re on the taller side!

WHAT TO WEAR :: LEATHER FOR SPRING

leather-for-spring-coco+kelley_1

You guys. I have become a total leather addict this winter. I love the edgy vibe it brings to every outfit. I live in my leather jacket these days. But, most of the leather pieces I own won’t be working with warmer weather approaching… so I employed the talents of my friend, personal stylist, and Le Curate co-founder, Sara […]

    What a great shoot! I love the concept of Le Curate also, especially for people like myself who sometimes need a nudge in a different direction to try when it comes to personal style.

    That leather bustier is way badass. My favorite look for sure. xo

    Black jeans are my go to almost everyday. I love them paired with that cute leather jacket and hat! I can’t wait for this dreary weather in Seattle to go away so I can break out the flats and booties! Gorgeous pictures!

    You look gorgeous. I actually bought a black leather jacket this past weekend in Boston. I had wrist surgery and had a cast on so could only try half the jacket on. Bought it with my fingers crossed. Cast came off today. Raced home and tried it on. Perfect! Love it! If the northeast ever warms up I may actually get to wear it. Great post!

We all have those pieces in our wardrobe we rely on for our everyday looks, and one of mine happens to be the requirement of a really fabulous blazer. Any outfit is going to look a bit more pulled together with the addition of one, and, for the holiday season – when we’re dashing from […]

    And I thought this was a design blog.
    NOT your personal photo-shoot.
    Sorry, my mistake.

    This used to be the best blog for home design. RIP.

    1. Cassandra LaValle Post author

      well, i’m sorry you feel that way – it still IS a blog for home design. but it has also ALWAYS included fashion as inspiration and a part of design. if that’s a problem for you, there are plenty of other interior design blogs dedicated to a single subject – i hope you enjoy them.

        I love seeing more personal posts every now and again. I get just as much inspiration. After all, design encompasses everything — from what we decorate with, to what we wear, to what we eat. You look gorgeous here!

    I LOVE that jumpsuit! What size are you wearing. I checked size chart and seems like it may run a little small??? What is your opinion on how it runs?

    Thanks!

    Ivy

    1. Cassandra LaValle Post author

      Hey Ivy! I’d say it actually runs pretty true to size! I put on a petite for the photo shoot because it shot better, but in reality I’d probably have gone with a small. It’s meant to hang a bit!

      So funny how people are so quick to write a negative comment when it clearly states in your blog description ‘brilliant fashion’… and I happen to love your fashion posts considering that jumpsuit is pretty brilliant! Just added it to my list for New Year’s Eve options. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Forget the clothes… I want the legs! What on earth are you doing for cardio? Spin class and kale smoothies? LOL. Your thighs look amazing in that white dress, and how often can anyone say that? Try never. I live for these fashion posts!

      teri, you’re my new favorite person! ;) but seriously, i work on those legs a LOT – they’ve always been my least favorite part of my body. tons of lunges and squats with weights to keep ‘em toned my friend! running and yoga too!

    Love this post!

    Can you direct me to those fabulous shoes you’re pairing with the jumpsuit?

    Also, saw the negative comment above and feel the need to speak up. You’re blog is fabulous! You deliver creative, fresh and inspiring material. That includes home interiors, fashion, food, beauty or soul searching. You do all of this graciously, sincerely and with true humility. I’ve been following this blog since its toddler years and have really enjoyed watching its evolution. And yours! Though you are one of the most seasoned and successful bloggers out there, this space still feels fresh. Never stop changing or growing.

    So proud that you are a fellow Zag!
