Get the Look: Elizabeth Banks in WALK OF SHAME


Get Elizabeth Banks’ look from WALK OF SHAME with these fabulous pieces!
This is the perfect ‘girls night out’ look! In the movie Elizabeth Banks plays “Meghan Miles” who wears a yellow dress she borrows from pal Denise, as they head out for the night in LA. It’s very similar to this Sammy dress, which is a total steal at under $41. Underneath, Meghan sports a sassy lace magenta bra and panty combo just like this set from She pairs her dress with some adorable teal, peep toe, t-strap sandals like these from Zalando. She rounds out her outfit with some statement earrings (which resemble these beauties from Maurice’s for ONLY $8!) and a metallic clutch like this one found at Macy’s for $28.

Hilarity ensues after a night out as Meghan tries to make it to a very important meeting. Be sure to check it out WALK OF SHAME in theaters and On Demand on May 2, 2014!

The outrageous comedy WALK OF SHAME stars Elizabeth Banks as a resourceful reporter whose one-night stand with a handsome stranger (James Marsden) leaves her stranded the next morning in downtown Los Angeles without a phone, car, ID, or money – and only 8 hours before the most important job interview of her career.

You can view the trailer here:

From Lakeshore Entertainment and Sidney Kimmel Entertainment, WALK OF SHAME also stars Gillian Jacobs (COMMUNITY), Sarah Wright Olsen, Kevin Nealon, Ethan Suplee, Bill Burr, and Willie Garson (WHITE COLLAR). Written and directed by Steven Brill, the movie is produced by Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi, and Sidney Kimmel. The executive producers are Eric Reid, Ted Gidlow, Jim Tauber, Bruce Toll, Matt Berenson, and Peter Schlessel.

The Plaid Factor

Plaid is back and what a perfect fall style to wear! One of the big trends for Fall 2013 the tartan is trendy again as seen on runways from big designers like Celine and Moschino. 
There are many ways to wear the classic check, depending on the piece you choose. I like plaid skirts, but I want to avoid looking like a school girl. Too many skirts are short and very youthful but this lovely tiered, silk number from Lauren by Ralph Lauren is a more mature version of the school girl style. I like the way the silk drapes and moves as you walk and the length is perfect for pairing with knee high boots. 
I chose to add this silk top by Elizabeth and James as a shell under a structured blazer. Any neutral colored shell will do if you are choosing to add a blazer. This particular blazer I chose is from a German clothing site but there is a similar version available from JCrew. I just love the classic camel color paired with this trendy tartan skirt.
For the boots I chose a knee high style in a versatile camel color (similar here and here) which I consider to be a wardrobe staple. I paired this with this gorgeous Bella Vista Satchel from a U.K. handbag designer Beara Beara. This, too, is on my lust list for this season. Finish your style with some simple accessories like a scarf and some drop earrings and you will be looking ladylike, for sure. This is a perfect Autumn outfit for work or for play.

What She’s Wearing Now – Fall 2013

I LOVE fall! It has always been my favorite season, and with my birthday right around the corner there is a whole lotta shopping going on! So I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite pieces for Fall 2013, some new and some classics, in this edition of What She’s Wearing Now.
One of the most versatile pieces I have is this Lace Camisole from Target, it’s so cute on its own in the warmer months but I cannot wait to use it with my Autumn layers.
I just spent a few hours at Macy’s the other day (sale!) and found a gorgeous Rachel by Rachel Roy sweater dress (similar here) for only $31! Not only is this teal such a perfect fall color, it’s made of a light knit so I can wear now with booties and later with leggings and boots.
Also, while at Macy’s I snagged a super cute Kensie knit dress (similar here) This, too, is a wonderful transition piece I can wear with sandals for now and pair with leggings and boots later.
I found this awesome Calvin Klein Striped Blouse at Ross and knew I had to have it in my life! It’s a nice long length so I will pair it with leggings or skinny jeans. The Black and White trend is still going strong and this blouse will be a go-to item for sure this coming season.
I just adore these Levi’s 535 Legging Jeans in Black, they are a new addition for my fall wardrobe, but I have been wearing these in blue for a year or so. The fit is flattering and has the perfect rise for my body shape.
I have been a TOMS wearer for a few years, but it took me a bit of time to get out of the classic. I tried a pair of wedge sandals this year and loved them so much that I decided to get a pair of the Desert Wedge Booties for this fall! I like that they can be dressed up or down. I’m fairly casual so this comfy and chic style will be a great addition for my closet. I’m pretty adverse to most black shoes (don’t ask!) but I am excited to sport these suede beauties!
Revlon ColorStay Overtime Lipcolor in Ultimate Wine. My signature lip color! Just a few weeks ago the hubby and I were getting ready to attend a birthday party and I couldn’t find mine, my husband teased “How will people recognize you with those pale lips? They won’t even know who you are!” Luckily, I found it. The red lips prevailed!
When my husband asked me what I wanted for my birthday, without hesitation I said Sam Edleman Maddox Booties. First, I adore Sam Edleman shoes. Hands down, my favorite shoe brand. Second, I’m a tad ‘bootie crazy’ this season so I thought the low heel and saddle color of these booties would function well with the rest of my fall wardrobe. Currently they are sitting wrapped beautifully in a corner so I can tear into them next week!
Now onto the classics:Sassybax Convertible Leggingsare by far the BEST leggings on the planet. I have been a Wolford wearer for many years and will always love their tights but these have taken over all my leg covering needs! A tad on the expensive side, but absolutely worth the investment. They are thick and cover well, and the Convertible Leggings have a pant style leg so they function well with many shoe styles. I also have a pair of their Booty-boosting leggings which are ribbed, fitted down the calf and have a shaper style to lift your booty. Think Spanx, but in leggings.
If you’ve been reading, you may recall my post on wardrobe staples. In it I had a little rant on buying good jeans, well here are mine. These Paige Denim Laurel Canyon boot cut (similar here) are my feel good jeans. I love the high quality fabric and the perfect boot cut leg. These are the kind of jeans you wear for years to come!
Last year, my favorite find were these stunningly beautiful Sam Edleman Penny Boots. I wore them everywhere. The rich, supple leather and low heel make them a classic for me. I intend to put a few miles on them once again this year.
Also, this fabulous Denim Shirt from J.Crew made quite a few appearances in my outfits over the last year. I have been waiting for the temps to cool off so I can bring it back out again.
Lastly, this maxi skirt has been a life saver for me. I started out with a similar version of this skirt which did not hold up too well. I finally decided to invest in this staple and bought the Chicos Sammi Maxi Skirt. It’s made of a fine jersey that breathes well and has a very fluid motion to it when you walk. It just drapes perfectly, and has washed very well, too! After months of frequent use it still looks new. Happy, happy!
So, that’s it! This is What I’m Wearing for Fall 2013. Tell me, is your fall wardrobe stocked and ready, too?
