This week has been all about wearing fogotten gems in my closet, like this dress from the Rodarte for Target collection a couple of years ago. I love a good designer for less collection-especially because I could never afford the real Rodarte. And this dress incorporates everything I love about the brand: lace, mesh tulle, and swiss dot chiffon all mixed together!

It's a problem we all know too well. You find an amazing designer treasure at a vintage store or on consignment, but there is something about it that needs tweaking before it can be outfit ready. Such was the problem with this vintage Missoni skirt acquired by my friend Kathryn*. After much debating, we decided that if it wasn't working as a skirt, why not turn it into a top? Et voilĂ ! Fashion problem solved. They say that necessity is the mother of invention. Have y'all ever had to get creative to make an outfit work?

*Kathryn is what I like to call my fashion soul sister and an original SideSmiler. Our obsession with and bond over all things relating to fashion runs deep. We both have a complete mental catalogue of each others wardrobe and are constantly swapping clothes back and forth. At any given time half of the clothes in each of our closets belong to the other.

Here is my summer reading list! I just finished Born to be Brad (um, LOVE), and am about halfway through Andy Cohen's Most Talkative (he is just as hilarious in print as he is on Watch What Happens Live). Clearly I am in biography mode with all of my picks. I just love feeling like I'm getting a behind the scenes peak at all of these amazing people.

Wardrobe Essentials: The Perfect Summer Bag

The key to a great summer bag is versatility. You need to be able to go from the beach or the pool to a dinner to or a concert without skipping a beat. My personal favorite is the kate spade cork bag, it's the perfect neutral. The cross body is the perfect hands free summer style. What are y'alls go to summer bags?
