Teddy Coats and Sequins

First off I can’t believe it’s February and I’m torn between wearing teddy coats and crop tops — or in this case both. But alas Global Warming… Here’s a fun transitional outfit I wore during fashion week that can easily go from winter for spring (just remove the jacket).

Outfit details: Ann Taylor Teddy Coat, Eliza J Sequin Floral Skirt, Susanna Chow Sasha bag, Yali Couture custom top + SKIMS Body Tape and Maristella Bianco Sequin ballet flats.

As a closet 34D to 34DD I’ve turned over a new leaf of going for fitted zipper in the back crop tops that double as a bra. I had a few made while in Vietnam from Yaly Couture and it’s been a game changer. I also discovered body tape after my friend Makeda from Glamazon Diaries raved about them. And as someone always on the hunt for tapes and hacks for busty women, I gave it a go with this look for an extra lift.

SKIMS Body Tape

Being recently engaged, I want to try any type of shapewear, corsets, body tapes and beyond before my wedding day. So many wedding dresses have a low back that I want to start experimenting now with what can lift me and work with my future gown.

Have any good shapewear suggestions for me? Drop me a comment or message me on Instagram @prettyconnected.

Ann Taylor Fall 2012 Collection Preview

Walking through the soon-to-be fall collection for Ann Taylor, I felt a very 60s vibe from the line. Far from anything hippy, I’m talking 60s Parisian professional mixed with some very Pan Am-like pieces. Leopard also seems to be the print of choice for the season, which was styled against red gives it a great pop!

This is the first season Ann Taylor is experimenting with printed pants (which have a little stretch), and are continuing to expand on their bridal collection.

My eye immediately went to the most amazing leather weekender bag (comes in black and brown). Turns out it’s modeled after a vintage Ann Taylor bag from the 70s that someone on staff had and it’s so chic they decided to bring it back. I’m so glad they did!

Select pieces from the collection will as soon as August with others arrive between then and November.
