We?re here at Neiman Marcus, one of my favorite places to shop. We?re standing right now in CUSP, the newly renovated department for Contemporary designers. I like to think of this as a modern, new shopping experience, and really a boutique within the store. And home to many of my friends?like Rachel Zoe, Diane von Furstenberg, Rag & Bone, Helmut Lang?and a great assortment of accessories. So let?s get down to business! I know what you want to talk about: Romance! And modern romance requires some modern style. Let?s start with something that we?re all familiar with?a busy schedule. So if you?ve got a hot date but you have to go straight from the office, well no fear. Because you can wear that classic blazer over a very easy dress. And you can toss that blazer at the office, and switch on some simple accessories, and turn that dress into a sexy option after five. Are you heading out for a dinner and a movie? Well then you want to keep it fun and comfortable, but still stylish. You want to look great over a candlelit dinner, but also sitting in the dark. So my favorite is to do a pop of color. I love this blouse, it?s just subtly sexy. But the best part about this outfit is the new J Brand jeans. It?s a take on the skinny stretch silhouette in the new brocade texture. And that is the best way to step out on the town. So if your day calls for a more formal function, I always say the rule in mind is to keep it slick, simple, and sophisticated. I love this purple dress from Rachel Zoe, because it just has the right amount of details to make you stand out in a crowd. I love the gathering around the waist, the gathering around the neck, my finishing details is really about the CUSP jewelry. Simple accessories can really turn an outfit to dynamite. Ok so he?s asked you to come have dinner with him and his parents. Tell me that?s not pressure enough! So the last thing you want to do is to add more pressure in finding that perfect outfit. That?s why I always say go with the one-step, no-fuss easy option: the wrap dress. I love this silhouette, because it flatters every body type. And I love this option from Diane von Furstenberg in the graphic black and white, because this is the trend I?m seeing on every runway around the world. Do you have a hot date? A big, fun night on the town? Maybe a little clubbing, maybe a little bit of dancing? This is your chance to go big and bold, and go ?statement? all the way. I love the wrap top and scuba skirt from Alexander Wang, but my favorite part, of course, is the statement faux fur from Rachel Zoe. Ok so we?ve seen plenty of options for a fun night out. But these are just my picks. You can visit CUSP online?or visit them in store?to make your own selections. And if you have nowhere to go, well, you can call me? maybe.
