Raise your hand if “does this come in black?” is your most asked question when shopping. While everyone’s hand but Anna Wintour’s is probably raised, this color is the queen of all colors. “It looks better in black” is my fashion mantra and this bodysuit from Nasty Gal is no exception. #Nastygalsdoitbetter

Nike Flyknit Frees

I am on a serious athletic shoe kick. I’ve incorporated these Flyknit Nike Frees into all my outfits over the course of the past few days while also having too much fun referring to myself as sporty spice. Once I started wearing these sneaks, I couldn’t stop because these Nike shoes are SO comfy. With all of the prepping for New York Fashion Week coming down to the last wire, comfort is paramount for all of my last minute errands. Need to get things done in a jiffy without sacrificing style for comfort? Pick out a pair of athletic shoes that you love and rock them with your next outfit because the sporty spice look is back.

I’m a big fan of sunglasses that match the color of my hair. Prior to these Illestevas, the only pair in my wardrobe that fit this description were the champagne colored sunnies called “Remmy” by Raen Optics. While I love the Raen champagne colored sunglasses (and anything to do with champagne), you can never have too many amber-blondish sunglasses and these Illesteva’s proved just that. The combination of these amber frames with the silver mirrored lenses on these Leonard sunnies are the perfect pop of color in my typical Catherine all black ensemble. What is your go-to pair of sunglasses?
