My closet gets more beautiful with some Club Monaco in it!!

Thursday, May 4, 2017

Ready for warm-weather fun in the Sinthea Dress ($329) and Loeffler Randall's Suede Luz ($395).
This dress is fully lined -- a rarity these days! And it looks amazing on.

What store is making my closet the prettiest right now? The answer has to be Club Monaco, whose fantastic Spring 2017 and early Summer 2017 lines have the perfect amount light, airy, breezy flow and pops of color. Every store visit has led to me falling in love with a few items, and try-ons never let me down here. Beautiful designs, gorgeous prints and fabulous materials all await me each time I go in or order online.

You might say I have a clothing crush on Club Monaco right now. Inside, what I'm drawing little hearts around right now and what's already come home with me...



With the Quenby Tiered Dress ($289), you get a tiered dress that is universally flattering.
Shown here with the Fiona Sandal ($229).

Club Monaco's NYC stores are set up a bit like a museum, with different 'exhibits' of sorts featuring cohesive ideas or themes. I love walking from room to room discovering each new vibe! One of the dresses that jumped out at me on my last visit is the Quenby Tiered Dress ($289) seen above. It's the first tiered dress I've ever tried on that doesn't make me look like a rectangle. And the color? A mesmerizing red. My sizing is all over the place at Club Monaco -- I often have to size up to the largest size they offer (generally a 12), but in this dress an 8 was perfect, likely due to the flowier fit. The silk habotai material is pleasantly soft yet has some weight to it to keep it from blowing away.



Monaco-style stripes await on the lovely MDS Stripes Halter Dress ($595).
With the Delmara Pump ($269).

The MDS Stripes Halter Dress ($595) is, quite possibly, the halter stripe dress I've been looking for my whole life! It's that cute. Made from cotton, the skirt is plentiful and this dress is so incredibly fun to wear! The wide waistline is a flattering touch and the halter ties are adorable. This dress fits body-skimming but not tightly through the bodice, leading me to take an 8, my usual dress size at Club Monaco.

Though they've chosen to go all red here, I also think this dress would look fantastic paired with a blue shoe, like the Channon Heeled Sandal ($298).

Let's take a look at a few more of my Spring favorites at Club Monaco...

The Rhodas Dress (now $139) is a cotton, off-shoulder dress with subtle stripes.
Like seersucker, but much softer. It looks amazing with a statement necklace and cute sandals!


Looks like a dress, but is actually a set.
The Anree Camisole ($140) and Dilys Skirt ($180).
Wear them separately or together.


I'm not a huge fan of jumpsuits, but I do adore the Allentin Jumpsuit ($250),
which features cute tie accents down the bodice.



The item I'm most excited about at Club Monaco, in the fact the reason I wanted to write this post, is 25% off right now! The Kiefira Ruffle Dress ($199 + 25% off, above) comes in black, a perfect blush pink or a blue pattern, and it's so, so wonderful on! I love the small ruffles with meander down from the shoulders to a precise tie below the arm holes. It's a lovely visual.

I am torn between all 3 colors! The black would be most versatile...the blush is the prettiest...and the blue floral has a cheerful vibe I adore. This surprise promo might be just the incentive I need to invest in multiple colors.

That is one thing I love about Club Monaco. Though they touch on trend, their clothing is so well-made and classically tailored that it lasts and endures through the ever-changing style idea madness that retailers come up with these days.

Briefly, here are a few other pieces I'm gaga for right now:
1 | Club Monaco has a beautiful mini-collection of white, wearable dresses. My three favorites are the Tayla Dress ($289) -- a long halter midi, the Pallay Linen Dress ($199) -- a tank dress with pom-pom hemline and the Julai Dress ($199) -- a swingy modern babydoll.
2 | Because I love all things ruffle, I'm rather enamored of the Naveah Silk Top ($150).
3 | How to make a skirt a little cuter? Pom poms along the bottom work for me! Somehow Club Monaco managed to make its Fleuris Skirt ($150) preppy chic and not the least bit tacky or odd.
4 | I didn't know I needed gold slides, but the Delmara Pump ($269) is absolutely on my shopping list!
5 | The Loeffler Randall Tassel Pouch ($175) is my ideal summer clutch, especially for evening beachside activities.
6 | Club Monaco is carrying several sunglasses by Krewe this Spring. It's hard to pick a favorite, but the Conti ($255) is definitely up there.
7 | The Tiphanie Sandal ($229) is the comfiest sandal, and I adore the tassel ties. Runs TTS, a 9 for me.
