I suppose I truly am a child of the 80s… because all of the distressed denim making a comeback right now is totally calling my name. I love the look of these destructed skinny jeans from Paige Denim, on sale at Nordstrom. They were $229, but are now marked to $153. Paige Denim Indio Zip Detail Skinny Jeans

Oh, hai. I’m just hanging out, doing my laundry. Yep, everything else was dirty — and I never get to wear this dress, and that’s a pity because, you know, it’s gorgeous, and I love it, and we all need to wear this dress. I somehow stumbled on this dress and now can’t decide what iteration I need more — the rose mermaid dress (pictured) or — and I’ll admit this is where the smart money is — on the knee-length dress that looks very similar, from the same designer? This cocktail-length dress has the markings of a winner — it comes in 10 colors (!), sizes 0-16, regular and petites — looks like you can wear a bra with it without problems — and it has 14 glowing reviews. I like — a lot. Even better? The cocktail dress is only $238. (The rose mermaid gown is pretty affordable also, at $298.) Tadashi Shoji Embroidered Lace Sheath Dress [Read more...]
Happy weekend, guys! I’m lusting after these black wedge boots from Børn — they seem like they’d be perfect to wear with black skinny jeans (or even, hey, those moto leggings I posted a while back), but also be good to wear with black tights and some of the flouncy skirts we’ve rounded up (either on the weekend or casual days at work). They’re $165 at Nordstrom. Børn ‘Faylan’ Wedge Boot
P.P.S. I’ve started NROLFW after our discussion on lifting for women, and found a super helpful blogger with before and after pictures (and the weights she’s lifting, listed). If you’re worried about getting too big, take a look at her before and afters — and then look at her weights. She’s lifting serious weights and is showing no bulk at all — and she’s been doing it for months now. Just thought I’d share!
I was sure we’d already featured the Sam Edelman Petty, but was surprised to see that we had instead featured the lookalike from Clarks, Spye Belle. The Petty is a very popular boot at a nice price, and comes in a million different color options — I like the low heel, and in the version pictured, the mix of black suede and almost reddish wood sole and platform. The boot is $130 at Zappos. Sam Edelman Petty
Readers, which are your must-have boots for weekends and evenings these days? On the flip side, which are your must-have boots for work?
I’m back on the hunt for some comfortable moto leggings that hold their shape, and was happy to see the Hue brand marked down to $35 — perfect for a trend piece that I’ve seen for as much as $1000 elsewhere. The blue is sold out, but the black is still available in all sizes online — hooray! Happy Friday, ladies. Hue ‘Moto’ Denim Leggings (Online Only)

P.P.S. Here’s a plus-size option.
I recently took a long look through AllSaints offerings, and I’m kind of obsessed with half the store. They’re edgy but refined somehow, like this lovely silk and sheer polyester tunic top. For weekends, I think it would look great with some of the moto-leggings or coated leggings that we’re seeing this season, or perhaps worn with regular leggings and flat over-the-knee boots. Love. It’s available in sizes 0-10 for $215. (Also nice: this awesome satin dress for $360.) Myrthe Top
