08/22/2017 Darling of the Day: Reese Witherspoon’s One-Shoulder Dress & Strappy Sandals!

Reese Witherspoon never fails to deliver on the red carpet, with her street style, & for any press event she attends. I love her feminine & edgy style, often a chic blend of preppy meets glam girl. The Oscar-winning actress & Draper James founder recently made an appearance in The Hamptons while promoting her new film, Home Again, wearing a gorgeous black & metallic one-shoulder Isabel Marant dress (shop here) (from the designer’s Fall 2017 collection) with ruffled Christian Louboutin strappy sandals (shop here). The look is picture perfect, which is why I’m featuring it for my latest Darling of the Day post. The ensemble is a definite style win, but the cost of the dress & shoes alone will run you back by the thousands.

It was hard to achieve a near-identical look-alike outfit, but I loved the inspiration behind the trendy one-shoulder & ruffled ankle strap heels. In featuring pieces inspired by Reese’s look, it’s always my pleasure to share how to recreate something similar for shoppers of any size. I love a great print & a black & white color combination is classic for every woman!

Super Style Wishlist: Hamptons-Ready Dresses From Neiman Marcus!

So I’m on Day 3 during my participation here at the Southampton Arts Conference, out on the East End of Long Island, where I’m not only spreading the Style Darling word, but also meeting lots of great, friendly, brilliant, creative new people.  Not to mention that I’m getting inspired by the summer-time attire, including gauzy white dresses, chic khaki crops, ballet flats, jeweled sandals, & plenty of printed skirts.  I’ve been doing very well for myself on the style side, earning a reputation for being told “Heeey! Nice shoes!” This has triggered yet another edition of Super Style Wishlist, where I invite my readers to join me in drooling over some of the most fabulous flirty dresses, perfect for a day in The Hamptons!


I clicked through my favorite high-end retailer, Neiman Marcus, & found some adorable summer-ready dresses, perfect for wearing right now (although today is quite the rainy day). The price tag is quite a bit beyond my budget, but the styles & designers are always important to consider! For example, the Kate Spade New York Jane printed dress ($458.00) caught my attention immediately b/c I’m always drawn to bold black & white graphic prints.  This is darling for a day of poetic musings with a neon patent leather belt & neutral wedges.  Next, the M Missoni hexagon striped knit dress ($895.00) is a more vivid statement for the season & can be dressed down for day with ballet flats & layered beads. 

Every summer girl needs a maxi dress & I’m loving the contrasting neutral tones in the Jay Godfrey bell v-neck maxi dress ($440.00), which immediately brings to mind some chunky platform sandals & hoop earrings.  Lastly, the Theory short-sleeved shirt dress ($285.00) is a classic must-have with wedges & drop earrings, or sandals & a medium-sized tote.  Happy Styling!
