Black = Life, Not Death


For those of you that do know me, you obv. know that I'm obsessed with black clothing. While some unfortunate people may think this means gothic, it most certainly does not in the fashion world.

I personally believe a black t-shirt, blazer, and jeans is the easiest way to have instant style. The absolute best part about black clothing is that the basic nature of the garment can appear designer, when it really is not at all. For example, someone could be wearing either an Armani black tee or a $5 Hanes tee, and no one would know (And yes, I wear both:)

So, for those of you that need to add that splash of non-color to your wardrobe, (this specifically goes to a specific friend that informed me of the lack of black in his wardrobe) run to the nearest Target, Macys, Banana Republic, Gap, etc. to pick up these items:


1. Black boyfriend blazer.
2. Black cardigan.
3. Black v-neck tee.
4. Black pumps (at least 3 inches).
5. Black tote bag.


1. Black blazer.
2. Black cardigan.
3. Black tee.
4. Black converse.
5. Black messenger bag.

Interview Dress Part 2: Present yourself with these totes


To follow up my previous post about what to wear for that big interview, I decided to present my two favorite interview-ready totes for men and women.

The interview outfit cannot be complete without an amazing, luxurious tote bag to accompany your portfolio and/or resume because let's be honest, you don't want to present yourself or your materials with that Jansport backpack or messenger bag from college.

These two totes are absolutely essential because believe me, the interviewer will take notice:


The J. Crew Marquee Tote is practical, luxurious looking, and affordable. Show up with this bag, and that job is yours.


The Cole Haan Portage Flat Tote in either black or brown is essential to show that you are that powerful man with style.

Ladies: You need this dress


With the very anticipated launch of Zac Posen for Target, I decided to preview the collection, and pull my absolute favorite piece to share.

This ruffled dress is a must have. It is the absolute definition of affordable chic. Pair it with a cardigan or blazer for work, and then take the outerwear off for a night out on the town.

(It also is the perfect way to channel that inner Carrie Bradshaw for the SATC 2 premiere).

The Zac Posen collection hits stores April 25, so make sure to consider this fantastic dress in either red or navy/black to really evolve that style.
