One Fab Dress, Three Ways!

Ever since we received the Shoshanna Alina Dress at our Georgetown store, we have been dreaming of where we would wear it around the District!  After some thought, we decided that yes, it looks fabulous alone, but, why not take this one great dress and style it three different ways?

Image

First, we wanted to do a fun night out on the town look.  We paired this with our Alpine Stars Alabama Moto Jacket ($582) and Kelly Wynne Mingle Mingle Mini Bag in Whiskey and Black ($310).  We love the jacket with this dress because it really makes the leather detail in the dress pop!

 

Image

For a casual afternoon at brunch, throw on this beautiful blue White and Warren Hi Low Cashmere Duster Sweater in Lagoon Heather ($276).  We belted the sweater with a LA Showroom Skinny Belt in Green ($20).

 

Image

In this last look, we put this Diane von Furstenberg Niseko Top in Black ($198) over the dress, and added the Loren Hope Lindsay Convertible Necklace in Gold ($95). Now you are ready for a day at the office!

 

After we styled these looks in Georgetown, our Harbor East store couldn’t resist trying out three looks for the new Myne Faux Leather Dress in Oxblood ($216).  

Image

First, we paired this dress with a fun LA Showroom Necklace.  The gold really pops against the Oxblood color (SO in for fall!)

 

Image

For a more casual look, throw on the Obey Wasted Years Cardigan in Brown/Black ($80).  This dresses down the leather, and makes a perfect look for lunching with friends or running errands around town.

 

Image

For the last look, we decided to layer three different pieces.  To start, we put on the Ella Moss Jane Doe Blouse ($151), added the dress, and then finished with a fab AS by DF Faux Fur Vest ($320).  This look can take you from the office to happy hour!

We hope you are inspired by taking one dress and styling it three different ways!  Come by the store to work with our stylists and put together YOUR perfect look!

Xoxo,

Blue is the New Black

I don’t know what it is about the color blue, but my eye has always been drawn to this shade. Maybe it is because I have been daydreaming about being by a pool for the past few hours…

Image

Ok, now back to fashion. We love this color in all shades right now at Urban Chic. How fabulous is this Shoshanna Sierra dress in Celestial Blue? It really takes my breath away each time I see it.

Image

A staff favorite, the Joie Marlo top in Nile Blue looks great on all figures. This blouse can transition from day to night seamlessly. Wear it with your white denim now, and then pair it with your favorite black pants for fall.

Image

How can you do a post about blue and not talk about blue jeans? Both of our stores are starting to get fall denim in, so you must visit soon! These Citizen of Humanity Avedon Slicks are the perfect skinny for fall. Pair them with the Joie Marru top in Peruvian Blue and you’re ready to hit the town!

Image

Come by soon to check out all of our lovely blue attire, as well as other fabulous fall items!

Xoxo,

Seeing Stars: Eva Longoria

It’s happened to all of us. One second you’re casually flipping through your favorite tabloid, indulging in a little guilty pleasure on your lunch break.   The next moment the outfit of your dreams has caught your eye thanks to one of Hollywood’s “It” Girls!  Immediately you’re on the hunt to find exactly what she was wearing because you’ve got the perfect occasion in mind.

In our case, it was Eva Longoria whose casual look we were dying to recreate.  It’s hard not to be envious – she always looks so effortlessly pulled together and gorgeous!  But we digress.  Not only does she earn style points from us for the colored denim, which is back in full force this Spring and Summer, but we love the versatility of this look.  It’s perfect for running errands on a weekday afternoon or a casual lunch with your girlfriends.  And with the start of Spring there’s one more occasion to add to that list… baseball!  This outfit is the perfect way to show your team spirit.  Go Orioles!

Left: James Jeans, Midrise Twiggy in Coral, $145; Top Right: Velvet, Devan Sheer Back Tee, $84; Bottom RIght: Rebecca Minkoff, Mini Mac in Almond, $295.

And since we’ve unfortunately yet to see any signs of Spring peeking through this dreary Baltimore weather, throw on this new arrival at Urban Chic Harbor East to complete the look.  We’re sure Eva would approve!

California Dreamin’

Ugh! Is there anything more depressing than the end of January?  The excitement of the holiday season is over and spring seems like light years away.  This week’s frigid temps (not to mention the snow coming down as we speak) haven’t been helping, either.  We at Urban Chic are all dreaming of a tropical vacation, but even if an escape to sunnier climes isn’t on your agenda, you can still dress the part with our fabulous new resort arrivals!

Resort Cabinets

How could these bright colors NOT put a smile on your face during the grayest of days?  Winter may be in full swing, but we are not going to sink into seasonal depression without a fight!  Check out our favorite dresses from our designers’ resort collections below—even if you’re stuck in the Northeast for the foreseeable future, the good news is that these will transition beautifully to spring and summer (when we’ve all switched over to complaining about the heat).

Hilly is wearing: Parker, Collar Wrap Dress in Kiwi, $207.

Dress Your Best for 2013!

And you know what the means: another New Year’s Eve, another party….and another dress!  If what you’ve already got in your closet just won’t do, first blame Facebook and your besties’ endless tagging of photos  for making it impossible to re-wear any of your favorite pieces, and then come on over to Urban Chic and pick up something shiny and NEW!  We’ve got sequins, shine, and sparkle—the perfect ingredients for standing out in a crowd no matter where you’re celebrating.

New Years Eve Dress Sale

And as always, we’ve got your back!  Save a little of your holiday cash with 20% off ALL full-priced dresses at both Urban Chic locations.  Your wallet and your wardrobe will thank you!  Here are a few of our favorites for the big night, but if you don’t see anything that tickles your fancy, there are plenty more where these came from!
