Be an animal

Intimidated by animal prints?   A lot of women are.  (And, if I’m honest, many of those who aren’t should be.)  Here’s a great way to do an animal print without it being quite so obvious:

This Anna Sui dress ($106.80 on final sale at Shopbop) is a more subtle and stylized take on zebra.  In fact, it almost looks like a ribbon print.  

I also really like how the strappy shoes sort of mirror the zebra stripe.  Just remember to keep the jewelry simple!

Good morning, Upper East Siders

The Cut has a first look at Anna Sui’s “Gossip Girl inspired” collection for Target.  Sigh.  I’m…underwhelmed.  I feel like it all looks really cheap.  And unflattering.

And before someone jumps in with the whole “Well, it’s Target.  It is cheap.” argument, I know these designer-discount collaborations can be done well (see: Thakoon for Target).  But if this stuff is flipping your switch, the collection hits stores on September 13.

P.S.  Sorry about yesterday’s glitch.  And special thanks to The Mister for taking time out of his work day to post my absentee message.

Maxed out

Much like the gladiator sandal, the maxi dress isn’t going anywhere for at least one more summer.

This jersey halter from Anna Sui ($464) has a flattering fit and a standout print to boot.  And it’s equally perfect for summer evening soirees or a lazy afternoon of lunching and window shopping.

I especially love that the halter neck ties, which makes it easy to adjust for the perfect fit on your shape.  Plus, with ruching on the bodice, this dress will just about mold to fit you, not the other way around.  And who doesn’t enjoy a gorgeous and comfortable summer dress?

 

 

You can get 20% off this and other select maxi dresses with the code TOTHEMAX on Shopbop.com.
