Monochrome ensembles lit up Spring 2013 runways and in several cases, even extended onto the runways of many Fall 2013 shows. Since this concept seems to be here to stay, it’s high time you give it a shot. While the seemingly trendy look may be daunting for the office, try easing into it with shades of white or ivory. Aside from all black, this is the second best way to effortlessly make monochrome work for you (ha get it? like work for you at work? nevermind).
Just make sure you don’t have a super delicious yet outrageously messy bacon cheeseburger for lunch with excessive amounts of ketchup and mustard that drip absolutely all over your lap. Not that this happened to me… I’m just saying. I’m speaking strictly in hypotheticals here.

Although you may be nursing a mint julep/margarita hangover today, I hope you thoroughly enjoyed the Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo this weekend. While another amazing weekend has gone by, there’s no reason to despair this Monday morning because tonight is the MET BALL. And since the theme is Punk, there will undoubtedly be some hilariously tragic ensembles that keep us laughing for days years to come. Whoever made the decision on theme this year deserves a medal. I’m throwing out a huge thank you in advance because this sitch is going to be real entertaining.
Aside from eagerly anticipating tonight’s fashion festivities, I thought I’d kick this week off with one of my favorite Coco Chanel quotes. For those of us who view fashion as more than an exercise in superficiality, I think it’s particularly poignant.

This, ladies, is a what a SHIRTDRESS looks like. It is an actual real dress that is the stylistic extension of the traditional oxford shirt. Uh huh. Yup. I’m sure.
Recently, I’ve been visually assaulted by certain strains of the menswear trend attempting to convince females everywhere that belting a dude’s shirt magically transforms said shirt into a “dress” – hence the rampant misuse of the term shirtdress of late.
Regardless of whether you’re a proponent of this trend on the weekends when you can go all WILD AND CRAZY AND PUT A DUDE’S SHIRT ON AND BELT IT AND CALL IT A DRESS BECAUSE YOU’RE AWESOME AND YOU CAN SHOW YOUR BUTT TO THE WORLD IF YOU WANT TO, I would strongly advise against this lovely little DIY project when headed to the office. Seriously. I’m begging you.
