The word lady is often associated with poise, polish and a general positive attitude. The modern woman however, is nowhere near perfect and constantly hustling either to meet ends meet or chase dreams.
When Talbots asked me to join their #BecauseImALady campaign, I of course said yes! Not only do I believe that the modern lady is a reinvention of former stereotype of those that alluded perfection but this campaign has such a realistic and witty twist on the modern lady.
I spent some time one weeknight after work at the Talbots in Midtown NYC (located on Madison Avenue between 53rd and 54th). The store has five different floors so I had a lot to explore, and I had so much fun walking around the well merchandised layout. I decided to check-out with some pieces that put together an outfit I felt was most true to myself but also one that incorporates the meaning of the modern lady to me.
Each piece I put together is a classic staple that ties back to all things I define as modern feminine. To start I layered a stripe tee with a ruffle detailed sleeve under a black faux fur collared sweater vest. Nothing makes me feel more elegant and poised than when I throw on some faux fur - instant mood booster! To keep this look on the causal side I paired with some blue jean leggings which are amazing! The fit on these is pretty high but the fabric is ultra soft.
This outfit represents how fun and girly the modern lady but that she values practicality and comfort.
