Here at DS we pride ourselves on getting from #desktodrinks as seamlessly & quickly as humanly possible because some days call for vodka gingers almost immediately upon leaving the office. So anytime I can find a dress or a simple separates combo that I can easily take from the office to happy hour, I’m a happy camper. I’d much rather take a little less time changing outfits, & swipe on a lip, change out my bag, & enjoy a little more friend time versus staring blankly into my closet. Ain’t nobody got time for that! There are beverages & good times to be had!

Maggy London has a few great dresses (on sale) right now that are perfect for these types of situations. Easily transition your favorite by ditching the tote bag + blazer for a bright lip color + a smaller clutch. In less than 3 minutes, you’re ready to take on those Mojito specials – full force.

What’s your best kept secret for getting from #desktodrinks in under 5 minutes?

Call me crazy, but this east coaster is ready for football, bonfires, & hoodie season. If you’ve been a DS reader for awhile now, you know how much I love the cooler weather & in an attempt to bring it on a little earlier this year I’ve been dressing in leather skirts & black separates as often as I can. Before you completely FREAK out on me for being a warm weather hater, let me remind you of a few things: September Fashion Week, Labor Day sales, the return of Scandal, chunky knits accompanied by skinny jeans & zippered boots, & last but certainly not least, PSLs. Aren’t you just a tad more on board now?

I realize we’re still very much in the dead of summer with no forseeable end in sight (sobbing soft crocodile tears) but humor me just a little, won’t ya? What part of Fall are you most looking forward to?

#AERONOW

July 29, 2014

“Anyone can get dressed up & glamourous but it’s how people dress in their days off that are the most intriguing.” – Alexander Wang

Like most people, my 9-5 attire is entirely different than what I wear after-hours & on the weekends. I love creating office appropriate looks every morning but when I get home I can’t get into my comfies fast enough. 9 hours in a pencil skirt? Adios, sir. My 9-5 looks are sometimes conservative & sometimes a little quirky but it’s never really what I’m most comfortable in. When I was younger, I spent my down time in basketball shorts & old swimming shirts – true & fabulous. Nowadays, I spend my down time in what’s most comfortable & what I feel my best in — more often than not, the two go hand in hand. While that sometimes means I’ll be sporting an aggressive basketball short situation, I can usually be found in anything that comes in black with a chic moto edge to it. I’m happiest in black skinnies, an oversized v-neck, a leather jacket & moto boots. As I’ve changed over the years, my style has done the same. It’s evolved from basketball shorts to leather pants & coach wristlets to oversized GiGi NY totes.

Seldom do I find an online shop that carries just the kind of boot & v-neck I crave & when I do it’s most definetly at a higher price point than I can afford. Lucky for me, Aeropostale (yes, that storefront you used to shop in 8th grade for graphic tees) carries a few of my favorites at price points that don’t make me cringe. Aero has just this moment launched their new #AERONOW campaign showcasing more on-trend items at the same low prices they’ve always maintained. They know that you’ve changed as the years have passed, so they’ve changed too.
