The Miracle Dress


[mir-uh-kuh l]

The word “miracle” is often used to characterize any beneficial event that is statistically unlikely but not contrary to the laws of nature, or simply a “wonderful” occurrence.

This dress from Tres Chic Boutique, my CultureMap Holiday Pop Up Shop companion, is just that, a “wonderful” occurrence!

Standing in my dressing room I overheard a woman exclaiming, “This dress is a miracle! I haven’t felt this beautiful in ages!” I of course popped my head out of the dressing room and asked for one in every color. To my surprise this “miracle” dress was just what I was looking for as well. The fabric is forgiving, yet sexy, while the top asymmetrical overlay gives it a modern vibe.

So what makes this dress so miraculous? The woman and I had totally different body types and a age difference of about fifteen years, yet this dress was perfect on both of us! Talk about Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants!

Don’t believe me? Try the “miracle” dress for yourself this weekend at Tres Chic Boutique during the CultureMap Holiday Pop Up Shop.

Coven Wicked Style

Black Booties

The new season of the FX series American Horror Story: Coven is terrifyingly fashionable.  There is gore galore but for the sake of fashion I cover my eyes and tune in every week.  Coven’s witchy fashion proves you don’t have to bare it all to be sexy.  Black is the color, Parisian chic is the style and heads are what will turn!  This is my Texas spin on Coven style. Forgive the background.  When inspiration hits, one must act :)

Urban Jungle: Houston

Anything leopard print is welcome in this girls closet. Thank goodness this great print reemerged as a far cry from the Peggy Bundy look of the 90’s. The new leopard is a neutral. You can wear it with almost any color. Take this Mink Pink sundress from Carrie Ann Boutique.

Leopard 2

I could have played it safe and went with a gold, black or brown wedge. These colors are all great (safe) options.

I say why not play up the look and add a tribal printed wedge! After all Houston is my Urban Jungle!

FashionBillie Bit: Check out your grandmas jewelry box. Vintage costume jewelry tends to be a better quality and resist discoloration. (No green neck) :)

FashionBillie Bit: Use leopard as a neutral.
