Plum Dress with Black Leather Accents

This plum dress with black leather accents around the shoulders is super classy. It's by Amy Matto. The cut is form fitting yet forgiving. It hits just above the knee. I had the opportunity to go on Sky News Australia's number one show again last night. Paul Murray is a really good broadcaster and is so welcoming every time I'm on his set. As far as the rest of the look goes.... the plum pumps and black leather bracelet are both from Jcrew. The large, crystal, post earrings are from Anthropologie.  Scroll down to get similar looks for your own wardrobe!

Neutral Tones and Sequins in NYC's West Village

Neutral tones and sequins are an unsuspecting yet perfect pair. Classy and elegant with a touch of pizazz. The neutral tones mute the scream that sparkle can sometimes bring... the kind that causes a dress to enter the room before the woman. It's all about the girl in the dress... not the just the dress right!? The under layer of this dress is nude in color. That hue combined with its fitted naturekeeps the tailored look... despite having a looser overlay.

I declare! I will wear this dress until the sequins fall off! I've probably worn it too many times as is. It was a West Village staple while I was living there. Hey! If there are different people at the events you're going to... and the dress is a hit... Do you really have to wear something new every time!? Every time I got to give it to GoodWill... I think... I'll just wear it ONE more time! Do you have any dresses like that?

Check out my handpicked goodies below. As always... let me know on social media if you find something that jives with your style!

Brilliant Floral Maxi Dress For Any Occasion

My look of the day is focused around this Yumi Kim maxi dress. I feel like maxi dresses are the perfect 'go to' if I'm ever questioning what I ought to wear to an event. They can be dressed up or down. Perfect for a casual stroll along the Bondi Beach promenade ;-)... a bridal shower... wine tasting... dinner out on the town... meet the parents... picnic in the park... music festival... etc. Timeless. Yumi Kim is awesome for floral prints that will knock your socks off! So I've handpicked some of her maxi dresses. The tan and gold flats I'm wearing are by Sam Edelman.The necklaces and bracelets are all from Bondi Markets.... two exceptions... gold long chain is by Madewell... and the stud blue glass earrings are from Tasmania's Salamanca Markets. PHOTO: Anna Kooiman, Bondi Beach, Lyndon Marceau Photography
