Anyone notice anything a little different around here?
How do you like the new look?!
I like to think of it as “website botox” — when it’s done right a website looks more awake, refreshed and rejuvenated. People can’t seem to figure out exactly what’s different, but something has definitely changed for the better…
After close to 3 years of active blogging, THD was ready for little tweak of the professional variety and I’m so excited about the end result — clean, modern and sophisticated. Best of all, my web designer, BLAZ DESIGN (I cannot recommend Shannon’s services enough!) and I tried to improve the user interface by making reading, sharing and commenting easier and more user friendly. Hopefully, you notice these little differences and enjoy the THD experience even more. As with anything new, there are always little glitches as we settle in, so please reach out if you experience any issues or difficulty navigating the new site.
Ok, now that our little housekeeping is done, onto the style!
The SHIRT DRESS has definitely gotten some love over the past few months — it’s one of my favorite warm weather staples! When I saw this image I had to do a double take because one of my best purchases this season is an almost exact copy of the dress pictured above. It was also under $20.

The key to making a really inexpensive piece look much richer and sophisticated is to pair it with higher end accessories. Those CHLOÉ BOOTIES are some of my style favorites as they easily transition across all 4 seasons — yes, even summer! The studded suede give them a whimsical western feel with a modern edge. If you’re looking for something a little less expensive that still has that richness — these SEE by CHLOÉ BOOTIES are still available in a few sizes.
MANSUR GAVRIEL bags have been quickly selling out for close to 2 years now and while they are not cheap, they are a great bargain and worth every penny for the Italian vachetta leather that will just get softer and better with age.
