black sparkle dress
"Nightwear" doesn't just have to be worn after dark. From glittery slip dresses, edgy accessories, and python-printed footwear, I'm rocking the hottest, most desirable trends ALL day, every day! Take a page out of my book and get inspired.

Slinky slip dresses ruled the 90s - think Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell - and guess what? Just like chokers and velvet, they're baaaack! Put a modern spin on this evening (ahem, daytime) staple by choosing a print with a little attitude. Mine, for example, is dusted with rainbow sparkles, making it trendy, unique - and with TWO plunging slits - daring.

A black leather jacket is timeless. Throw one over your shoulders for an effortless nonchalant vibe. NOT wearing your jacket is actually the new, cool thing...weird, huh? But trust me, it's fabulous (as long as it's not actually cold out)!

Snake prints are guaranteed to take your go-to outfits up a notch - or two. And while python-printed booties may seem like a daring option, they're actually just as versatile as a neutral - except for the fact that they pack a MAJOR punch!

Sunglasses are alluring. Enough said. And these Ray Bans are just way too cool to keep stashed in the bottom of my tote bag!

You most likely already own a choker. But do you have a metallic silver choker? This trendy version of a much-loved favorite feels so fresh with everything - and I mean EVERYTHING (hello t-shirt and jeans).

Pointed earrings add just the right amount of sharpness to my ensemble; they're subtle yet super fierce.

To polish off this daytime-fierce outfit, I gave myself a metallic eye teamed with an electric lip - a lip that actually looks more purple than pink IRL. Oh, and you may have noticed I straightened my hair! Who knew it was THIS long, amirite? I thought sleek strands vibed with this look much better than curls ever could.

Traipsing around SoHo, I felt pretty rocker chic in this outfit. And that made me realize that fun pieces - like glittery dresses - shouldn't just be reserved for evening. When worn with confidence, such standout items add total star appeal to your entire demeanor. Hmm, what's that phrase they always say? Life's too dessert first? Yep, I couldn't agree more!
