Omiru Poll Results: Shirtdresses are In!
We asked: Are Shirtdresses In or Out?

Nili Lotan Shirt Dress | $475 at Shopbop.

You said: It’s time to shop for shirtdresses. 68% are all over these versatile dresses, and only 12% and 19%, respectively, believe they’re On the Way Out and Out.

Omiru’s take: The perfect workdress, Shirtdresses manage to straddle the line between professional and figure flattering. Not too casual, but not too fussy, Shirtdresses travel effortlessly from the boardroom to cocktails at the local bar. We’re stocking up on both short and long sleeve styles (such as the attention-grabbing mod dress pictured at left) to take us through Winter and Spring! [Omiru]

Shell Shock – Tortoise Shell “it”
Elle spotlights that tortoise shell has resurfaced as the season’s most unexpected accent, turning up on everything from breezy dresses to wedge heels.

For my direct experiences I was completely torn between the Prada sunglasses I bought (the hipster pair I shared) and these Oliver Peoples Varadis 284. The dash of not-too girly pink is so chic! Trust me I was torn between the two but dropping another $300 wasn’t in the budget (insert shopping pang here). read more

Street Chic – Sheer Goes Chic

I don’t know about you, but every once in awhile, I find a totally awesome shirt that is, unfortunately, totally sheer – almost see-through sometimes. I usually put these shirts back on the rack, thinking I’ll never wear them, but I’ve found a great example of how to wear a sheer shirt with this stylish look:

I love how the black and white striped shirt peeks through the white top, which is accented by an ornate black pattern – the contrast is amazingly cute – black vs white, stripes vs ornate pattern, etc. Black and white are, of course, always cute together, but the overall outfit just rocks. I believe she said most of the pieces were from Express, so check them out if you likey the outfit. read more
