What I Wore: Mirror Print Sheath

Ruby Slipper Diaries is under construction and redesign by the lovely Victoria from 329 Designs. My prior posts from August haven’t carried over, bear with us while the conversion is going on 😉

I am very excited to share with you one of my Project Fab purchases from Marshalls. I had fall trends in mind when I made my purchases, I fell in love with the color and fit of this dress it couldn’t be more perfect for the transition from warm to cold weather.

I also found these gorgeous suede and patent eggplant pumps. Surprisingly, they are super comfortable for an 8 hour work day. I’m a fashion over function gal, if it looks good I’ll make it work and worry about the pain later.

Ever see the Friends episode when Monica buys the expensive boots? That episode could have been written about me. The things we do for the love of fashion!

Outfit Details:
Dress- Donna Morgan c/o Marshalls ($49.99)
Pumps- Lauren by Ralph Lauren c/o Marshalls ($39.99)
Jacket- Forever 21
Clutch- Target
Sunnies- Guess via TJ Maxx

I paired the dress with a cropped black jacket I already owned, the neck line isn’t exactly appropriate for the office, but I couldn’t contain my excitement I had to show it off ASAP! Problem solved- Jacket, blazer or Cardigan.

I envision wearing this with black tights, ankle boots and a fitted blazer later in the season.

Hope you’re having a great week!

What I Wore: Red and Black

Hope everyone had an amazing weekend! My Saturday was spent shopping which ALWAYS makes me happy, I am on a credit card freeze for the month- but I am participating in a contest for Marshalls called Project Fab. I am a semi-finalist who was sent a gift card and asked to find some fabulous deals. Well, let me tell you I found some fabulous deals!

If you follow Ruby Slipper Diaries on Facebook and Instagram I shared a few photos during my shopping adventure… Check it out if you haven’t already.

Over the next week I’ll be sharing my purchases, but today is an Oldie but Goodie I bought at Marshalls a few years ago:

Outfit Details:
Sheath- Calvin Klein via Marshalls
Black Pumps- Franco Sarto via Marshall’s
Gladiator Heels- Nine West via Boscovs
Necklace- Burlington Coat Factory

If you saw the first of my Fall Trends post here red and black plaid is a trend to try next season, but honestly black and red is a classic color scheme that will never go out of style. So if plaid has you left feeling too lumber jack or school girl you can still stay trendy by pairing these colors together!

Happy Monday!

Fall Trends Vol. 1: Tough Girl Tartan

Fall is coming whether I like it or not, so I’ll bite the bullet and start sharing what fall has in store for us.

Today’s post is the first edition of the seasons upcoming trends- First up: Black and Red Plaid. Fear not my fellow Private School alums the look is classy chic not school girl.

To offset the uniform feel incorporate the trend in small doses:

Take a plaid midi skirt and accent in all Black. The black open toe ankle boots are an unexpected touch of bad girl, but the structured handbag and mixed metal pearl necklace keeps you office appropriate and oh so Lady like.

Add a plaid pump to boyfriend jeans, white T and a structured blazer. A hint of gold and a red patent clutch makes an otherwise casual outfit a little luxe and fun!

For those days when you want something comfortable but trendy, wear your plaid oversized with leggings, ankle boots and a cross body bag.
