Most of the weddings I have attended in recent years happened to be ones where I was a bridesmaid. This meant that my get-up was chosen for me, or in collaboration with the bride, and I did not have to worry about that decision in the least! When my cousin Caitlin’s wedding rolled around last week, however, I was excited to try something new. I found these amazing pants at Zara while Catherine and I were in New York and knew instantly that I had to do something really cool with them.

Nothing like saying ‘what’s up spring?’ with a trusty all black outfit. I mean, really, what else did you expect? As much as I keep trying to branch out with new pieces (and I really am trying), I always find myself coming back to black basics. It’s just so easy to mix and match my favorite black pieces to create new looks, no matter the season. Yes, I feel very redundant at this point, but alas, that’s about all I’ve got for you guys on this last Friday in March.

I’m sitting here, staring at my screen, waiting for inspiration to strike me, and I’m thinking ‘well, I’ll just write about how to get inspired to write a blog post.’ Very meta huh? Is that what meta is? I’ve never really understood the whole meta thing. Butttt I digress. In all honesty, I don’t think that I could tell you anything helpful about how to get inspired to write a blog post. I am always telling Catherine that she is so good at writing mindful, inspired posts and I’m always over here like HEY HOW COOL IS THIS DRESS? Continue reading “Work in Progress”
Packing for Fashion Week is always SUCH a struggle. (Yes, I know this is a seriously cliche fashion blogger statement, but just bear with me).
This season, I knew I had to have some sort of strategy so as to not go totally insane during the process. To make matters worse, I just moved into our new house this summer and my clothes are EVERYWHERE; downstairs closets, upstairs closets, the attic, my car and yes, even at Catherine’s house. It’s always tempting to pack all of your ‘HEY LOOK AT ME’ pieces when heading to New York so as to capture the eyes (lenses) of the Street Style photogs and in our instance, yes, Cath and I would like to think of ourselves as the next Caroline Vreeland and Shea Marie.

There are quite a few things (aka one million) that need to be done in preparation before Fashion Week. So far, I’ve talked about one of my favorite fall trends that will make the trip with us, but there are SO many more factors that go into these bi-annual trips. We are currently in the midst of planning for shows, parties, brand events, etc but to be honest, one of my most favorite things about the trip is the hotel sleepovers with Cath. In the morning and every night before bed we get to talk about the day, about our goals, about various other TCP goings on and also just have plain old girl talk. Continue reading “Girl Talk”

In Cath’s last post on The Crystal Press she introduced you to Lola Pepper Boutique in Richmond and accurately described how perfect this shop was for us. And by perfect I don’t just mean the clothes, the leather cuffs and the handmade necklaces but just the whole *vibe* of the shop that Jillian has created. Like Cath said, because of how perfectly she has curated the goods, you won’t walk out empty-handed. As a matter of fact, I scooped a piece to wear on my wedding day.
When Jillian first showed me this Skemo piece, I knew it was love at first sight. It is totally designed to be a dress but as we’ve seen in my past outfits, I like to try to pull off the dress-over-jeans style and this edgy-boho number was right up my alley.

One of the must see places in RVA is the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and it’s pink marble hall. Yes, there is a hall in the VMFA that is completely covered in beautiful pink marble. Check out this Nasty Gal Metamorphose dress I rocked in this infamous hall that is on sale right now for a runway look without the runway price. It is our go-to at The Crystal Press for all things wedding aka we’ve both worn it to multiple weddings & events.
Throw on a jewel toned headband to take this (or any) look to an oh so goddess level!
