Optical Dress-Up

20130309-IMG_3876.jpg

Growing up I was definitely one of those girls who was "jealous" of those without 20/20 vision and got to wear cute glasses. I even had a few pairs with plastic lenses so I could pretend but back then it wasn't cool to wear "pretend" glasses. Lucky for me that's not the case anymore and glasses are there to use for our styling pleasure. Warby Parker makes it even more fun with their at home try-on program, not to mention the fact that they give a pair to someone in need for every pair purchased. I must have spent three hours on the site playing virtual dress-up before finally narrowing down to my five picks. I'm a huge sucker for sunnies as well so I had to include a couple of those too. It was hard enough to select just five (there's at least three or four I am sad to have left out - eh hem Percey), and now how am I going to choose between them? What do you think - which ones should I keep?

Warby Parker glasses from top to bottom (c/o): Beckett specs in revolver matte black, Tenley sunglasses in midnight blue, Crosby specs in black, Jasper sunglasses in marine slate, Winston specs in lunar fade, Outfit: Theyskens Theory leather jacket, T by Alexander Wang tee, Joe's jeans, J.Crew flats, Valentino bag, Forever 21 bracelet, Michael Kors watch (similar)

My Home on Glitter Guide

CATHERINE008.jpg

I was recently given the exciting opportunity to be featured on one of my favorite glamourous online publications, Glitter Guide, in their Style at Home column. It was super fun (all be it scary and a bit naked feeling) to let readers into every corner of my home and share more aspects of my life and style than I ever have before. Luckily, I had the help of Jessica to fluff the interiors (and the girl's a wizard with flowers), Jaimi to make my nails look awesome, and Sarah to capture it so beautifully. There were too many great shots to choose from, so I thought I'd share a few outtakes here. Head on over to Glitter Guide to see the rest of the photos and read the interview if you feel so inclined.
