Modest Styling: From Desk to Dinner in Ecru

Fashion that does double duty translates well from one environment to another. Nothing does this better than investment pieces that can take you from the desk to dinner. Who has time to go home for a complete make-over? Change out key pieces, like a jacket, bag and jewelry to transform your look.

From Desk to Dinner in Ecru

The Mikael Aghal satin-jacquard dress is in ecru and light brown. Ecru is a pale yellow-brown color with a grayish tone. Depending on the person, beige and ecru are considered very similar. These colors work well with gold.

In this set, a Chanel cream and sequin tweed jacket serves as a great cover-up. I’d opt for a toned-down watch for work, but pop on on a delicate gold-tone watch with crystals for dinner.

What’s your desk to dinner style?

Fashion Find: ’70s Gold Metal Bag


Did somebody say vintage? This ’70s gold metal bag with lurex rope and tassel by Wanted Vintage reminds me of a pocket watch. It would go perfectly with the little black dress.

Pretty Like a Peacock


Did you know in the world of peacocks, the male is technically the peacock and the female is a peahen? I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be called, “Pretty like a peahen.” Just doesn’t work for me. Sweet pea, maybe. Peahen, negative.

Since it’s common for us to call both sexes peacocks, let’s be Pretty Like a Peacock in this collection.

Peacocks are colorfully adorned creatures, although most are blue and green. The Pretty Like a Peacock Collection takes advantage of light blue and green, and adds gold for sparkle. Our peacock collection includes:

[list style=”star”]
  • soft blue and gold sequin tank
  • gold sequin cardigan
  • white skirt with embroidered light blue and gold peacock feather motif
  • nude strappy heels
  • gold thong sandals with crystals
  • embroidered silk peacock clutch
  • peacock feather-inspired ring and necklace

There are lots of peacock-adorned goodies out there at affordable prices. Find some pieces that fit your budget.

One more question. Can you model this style?
