Road to MAGIC Personal Style-What To Wear When You're Out of Time

Monday, August 27, 2012

I have a confession to make. When it comes to self-styling and dressing, I cut corners whenever I can. Yes, I know what you're thinking. I'm a fashion blogger! I should be spending hours agonizing over whether my herringbone trousers channel Katharine Hepburn circa her love affair days with Howard Hughes or Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday. No. With my overloaded schedule, I sometimes don't even have time to eat, and I love to eat! That's why I style outfits that are easy to wear, quick to put on, and versatile to transition from day to night. Because I know that inevitably, I always have about 5.34 seconds to decide what to wear before I head out the door as I'm already 15.34 minutes late.  

The above is a long-winded explanation of why I wore yet another dress at MAGIC. My schedule at the fashion trade show was jam packed with panels, meetings, dinners, parties, and blogging. Every day, I woke up with a million things on my mind while simultaneously trying to do a million things at once. I perfected the skill of teeth brushing while texting AND doing thigh lunges. Needless to say, I didn't have much time to focus on what to wear. That's why I love my Lovemarks dress. Its shape and length is so me as the puff sleeves and baby doll cut cutely highlights the female body.  The brocade stretch fabric mixed with a sheer panel adds a dressy versatilility to the outfit, making it quick and easy to switch from day to night with just a few key accessories.

Side note: my Seychelles wedges are so comfortable I actually preferred them to flats at MAGIC! They're extremely lightweight and provide great height and style as they look like wedged Chelsea boots. They definitely helped me shave off a second from my daily "what to wear" decision making session so I could squeeze in an extra lunge.
