Dream, Dream

nyfw 8

This outfit is a flashback to the look I wore to the Monique Lhuillier show during NYFW. Rebecca tried to snap a pic of me wearing this ensemble in Moynihan Station (where the show was located) but the lighting would not allow the way that the snowy NYC streets do here. I couldn’t have been more excited to use this Louis Vuitton bag courtesy of Bag, Borrow or Steal around the city and to different fashion shows. If you have been following along with The Crystal Press, you know that we are lovers of Louis Vuitton and this bag is no exception. On that note, this white Iris + Ink top (from Shopstyle) is one of my all time favorite shirts I’ve ever worn. The sleeves have amazing zipper detailing at the wrist and styling on the back of the shirt speaks for itself in these pictures.

All I have left to ask is – can every week be fashion week? A girl can dream.

White Fabric Hack

crinkle blouse 6White fabrics like this HM blouse are beautiful, but I’m pretty sure everyone can agree that their stain vulnerability is not. I for one was quickly reminded of this fact when I spilled red wine on my brand new white duvet cover two nights ago. A white duvet with a red wine spill is severely disappointing, especially when you just rearranged your bedroom decor to favor said duvet cover (see my room pre-wine stain here). Simply put, a red wine stain on a brand new duvet cover equals a Catherine freak out.

After a few choice words and what I’m sure was a very flattering freak out session, I decided to listen when google told me to pour vodka onto my red wine debacle. Either my lucky stars were aligned or vodka really does dilute red wine stains because my Belle Epoque duvet came out of the wash machine without a trace of my spill. The moral of the story is wear your white shirts without fear because red wine stains are not as lethal as they used to be!  What hacks have you used to get red wine stains out?

Fall Florals

gauchos 3

Today I am very excited to show off this Forever 21 floral cardigan AND to say that I can actually smell the roses and taste my coffee. For the past seven days, I haven’t been able to smell or taste in a normal manner because I have had quite the bout of sickness. After lots and lots of fresh juices, vitamins, essential oils, and absurd amounts of DayQuil, I think it is safe to say I am back to my normal Justin Bieber listening self! Speaking of Biebs, what do you guys think of his new album Purpose? Do you love it as much as I do?
