Dear Dreamer and Pop Culture Admirer,

What is your dream job? When I think of my dream job, a specific person comes to mind. That usually happens right? You often have said dream job because you’ve idolized someone currently holding that role and wishing for that to be your reality. My person is Giuliana Rancic.

Full-time entrepreneur and the OG E News correspondent. I have admired her for as long as I can remember. I used to stay up way past my bedtime every night to watch the E News second airing before hitting the hay. I love that her every day is encapsulated with fashion, pop culture and celebrity news, all topics that I am truly passionate about. She works for one of the most prestigious networks, which has provided and allowed her to create a platform that she gets to utilize daily to speak to the masses. How cool is that.

As someone who’s always loved those things, loves the world of publicity and isn’t afraid of public speaking, I’ve dreamt of one day being able to stand next to her and work my tail off. I tell people today, “someday, I will be the next Giuliana Rancic.” That’s how much I love her.

What made me think of this topic was that the Emmy’s were on TV last night. I sat on my couch and watched celebrities arrive on the purple carpet via the E News coverage and was glued to Giuliana interviewing some of my favorites. The preparation, the glam and research it took her to stand there and talk to these stars even for such a short amount of time amazes me.

So, in light of the inspiration I felt last night watching my idol yet again kill it on an award show carpet, I thought I’d take a stab at reporting out on some of my favorite looks of the night. All listed below! I’m curious to know, did you watch the Emmy’s last night and if so, who were some of your favorite looks?

Henson in Vera Wang // Zendaya in Vera Wang

Some of my other favorite moments from the Emmy’s include: Alex Borstein sharing a family story and encouraging women to step out of line, Michelle Williams talking about equal pay, the compilation montage of series that departed this year (I was in tears), RuPaul’s Drag Race winning an Emmy and Bob Newhart sharp as ever at 90 years old in a bit with Ben Stiller when handing out the first award of the night. These moments and more can be seen at eonline.com (my fave site ever!).

10 Blazers Under $50

Hello There,

Anyone else feel like a total boss when they throw on a blazer? Working at any job in any capacity, I truly think that blazers are the quintessential staple piece that every modern woman needs to have in her closet. A blazer is the perfect article of clothing that can transition from day to night, from the office to happy hour!

How to style a blazer: This season I am very into head to toe print looks. Pair a plaid blazer with a shift dress downing the same pattern. Blazers are super trendy to wear with turtlenecks in the cooler temperatures. I also think a blazer looks so sexy draped over your shoulders with a lace camisole or bodysuit underneath. Regardless of how you wish to wear a blazer, the best part is that there are so many different styles, shapes, silhouettes and patterns to choose from. I literally just counted, and I currently have 10 different blazers hanging in my closet. I just can’t get enough. The whole menswear as womenswear is totally my jam, and blazers are best in show when achieving this look.

If you want to obtain a good one that lasts you many wears, I suggest taking the time you need to invest in a good piece. Some of my favorite stores to get quality blazers from include H&M, Zara, Ann Taylor, J. Crew…the list goes on and on. I know that you may not be looking to drop hundreds on a blazer quite yet, so I’ve rounded up 10 chic and stylish blazers from all over the internet that you can purchase for under $50.  

Linking all of the above blazers below, starting from the top left going across and then down. If you haven’t yet, check out my latest Instagram post and let me know what you think!

Target Tan Plaid Blazer $35 // DR2 at Nordstrom Rack Textured Knit Burnt Orange Blazer $35 // H&M Fitted Blazer (comes in 6 colors) $35 // Rachel Roy White Drawstring Blazer $32 // Zara Deep Turquoise Blazer $50 // Veronica Beard via Rent the Runway Blue Plaid Blazer (most similar to mine above) $39 // Old Navy One Button Black Boyfriend Blazer $35 // H&M Double Breasted Dark Beige Blazer $50 // H&M Double Breasted Herringbone Black Blazer $35 // Old Navy Classic Gray Blazer $45

Dry Goods Try On Haul

Hey Peeps, Happy Thursday!

I am not much of a mall person. Slowly, in the technologically advanced world we live in, I am becoming more and more of a shop online kind of gal. Recently though, on our way to a dinner date, my friend and I briefly stopped at the mall to check out this new store that had just opened up. All about the new and shiny thing. The store is called Dry Goods. Just hearing the name, I envisioned a rustic Homegoods type of vibe, which is why I had no idea why my friend was dragging me there, i.e. not my vibe at all. To my surprise, I walked into what I like to call the Francesca’s, Gap, Madewell married in heaven store. The styles can tend to fall a little on the boutiquey side BUT they have really great classic pieces that you can elevate in your everyday style. Those are the pieces I gravitated toward and actually purchased.

In all transparency, I thought this place was reasonably priced. I bought 7 items and spent around $200. This was my one good Fall fashion haul for the season, or at least that’s what I keep trying to convince myself of. What really sold me was the quality of the pieces. Everything feels like it’s going to last me years, which I love and justifies the money spent in my personal opinion. Why spend $10 on something that will fall apart after a couple of wears when you can spend $40 on something that will last multiple seasons? For all intents and purposes, Dry Goods is like a boutique. All clothes are not “Dry Goods” labeled on the tags, each piece comes from other companies, but they manage to select pieces to showcase in their stores that are cohesive and on brand. I also love that they carry Love Your Melon hats. If you don’t know the mission and value of Love Your Melon, check it out here.

If you follow me on Instagram (@_sydthompson), you may have seen the video I just posted. I have never really been a fan of the typical blogger “try on hauls” so I tried to take the same concept and switch it up a tad. I have either linked the exact item from the video below, or if items were sold out, I liked similar ones from the Dry Goods site or something I found on a different retailer’s site that is super similar and around the same price point I paid. Fall fashion is quickly approaching and I am super excited to have discovered this new brand to make shopping for the new season that much easier!

Black Jumpsuit (Sold out so linked similar) // I LOVE the fit of this piece because it hugs in ALL the right places. The cropped pant also makes it great to wear with multiple kinds of shoes and makes it a great transitional piece. The all black also speaks to my heart. I think this runs true to size, I got a Small and it fits perfectly. Another similar one here in Navy // Another similar option currently on Sale

Blue and White Stripped Blouse // I was nervous about this one because I thought it was going to be extremely see through, but to my surprise, it surpassed my expectations. I just wore a nude bra underneath and you couldn’t see a thing. I think this runs a little big so I would size down for a tighter fit. I purchased mine in a Small.

Marigold Print Blouse // Even though I’m not a huge floral print fan, I liked this piece because I don’t have much yellow in my closet and I thought this would be a great Thanksgiving Day shirt. I love the lightweight material and think this fits true to size. I got the Small.

Emerald Green Peplum Blouse // I love peplum shapes and I think this color is about to have a major moment this Fall season. The button detail makes it super feminine and it feels so super soft. The arms run a little tight, so I would probably size up. I got this in a Small.

Chambray Shift Dress // I loved this piece because I think it’s a classic that you can style so many different ways and layer so many things on top to make a completely different look each time. It runs a little big, I got the Small but could have easily fit into the XS. I couldn’t find anything similar to this on the site right now, so I linked a VERY similar option from Macy’s.

Gray Sweater Dress // Winter is calling my name in this dress. It is so cozy and heavy, which will be great paired with over the knee boots in the bitter cold months. I do think this dress runs a tad on the smaller side so if you are between sizes I would size up here. I am wearing a Small but would be more comfortable in a Medium I think.

Camel Turtleneck // Hands down my FAVORITE piece out of my whole purchase. I think I’ve already worn it a hundred times since I bought it. It is slightly cropped, which makes it perfect for a French Tuck in the front. The color goes with everything and the sweater is soft yet on the lighter side, which is why I’ve been able to wear it now! I am wearing a Small, it fits true to size.

How To Transition Summer Clothes to Fall

Hi There,

Often times, when either flowers start to bloom or the leaves start to change colors, people think that it’s time for a whole new wardrobe. Well, I think those people are crazy. The fun part about fashion is finding new and innovative ways to wear things we already own. To take an article of clothing and completely transform its makeup. Hey, you also help the planet that way as well.

Right now, at this time, we are about 13 days away from the first official day of Fall. All that being said, don’t go Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Halloween Town on me yet…because there are some fun ways you can transform the pieces already in your closet into chic, cooler-weather masterpieces. Save money, save the planet and save your sanity. Your lightweight, flowy Summer staples aren’t going into hibernation just yet. Here are 5 simple ways to transition your Summer clothes to Fall:

1. Pair a strappy dress with an undershirt.

This is totally a 90s vibe and I am here for it. I feel like for the past couple Summers, slip dresses have been all the rage. I indeed have a few in my own closet that I’m proud of. The last thing I want to do is put them away just because of a change in season, so my style hack is to pair these Summer numbers with an undershirt. Like literally, I got one from the boy’s section at Target for like $10 in a size Medium. Wear it underneath your slip, strappy dress to cover your shoulders and keep you warm in the Fall months.

2. Mix and match season pieces.

One of the best ways to slowly transition from piping hot temps to cooler ones is to mix and match pieces from each season. Throw a sweater over your favorite Summer dress or wear a turtleneck with a pair of shorts, like I am doing in the above images. Mixing and matching also helps you feel like you get to hold onto the best parts of each season for a little bit longer.

3. OTK Boots.

This hack is a super easy one. The toughest part for me about transitioning into a new season is deciding what kind of shoes to wear. Is it hot enough to wear sandals or are my toes going to freeze while walking to work? OTK (or “over the knee”) boots are perfect for a season transition because they can literally be worn with every kind of bottom. Skirts, shorts, pants, leggings, even dresses, over the knee boots feel Fall while still having the ability to wear some of your lighter, perhaps even shorter in length, Summer styles. Bonus, these boots are super chic and make your legs look 10 feet tall.

4. Layer, layer, layer.

I cannot stress enough that as you transition your wardrobe to Fall and start to dust off pieces you put into storage months ago, the first items that should start to slowly come out are your lightweight Fall jackets. Trenches are great, cardigans are great, leather jackets are great. These styles are simple enough to go with many things currently in your closet and the best part about them is that when those random last Summer days creep in before Fall really hits, you can easily remove them from your outfit to adjust to the unpredictable temperatures. Now is the weird time in the Midwest where it’s freezing in the morning but scorching in the afternoon. Wear a lightweight Fall jacket with your everyday outfit, and when it gets hot, simply remove that outer layer. Style hack: I even like undoing my Summer wrap dresses to wear as open, breezy dusters!

5. Tights for days.

I can promise you tights are not for older women. I actually think wearing tights is super chic. This is also the easiest way to keep wearing your dresses, shorts and skirts for even longer, even way into the thick of Fall. Get a pair of opaque or black tights to pair under all of your current Summer bottoms. If you don’t already have a pair of tights, you can run to Walgreens or Target and get them for under $10. Not only will it elevate your everyday look, but tights also keep your legs nice and toasty, which is what you want when the crisp Fall air starts to swoop in.

If you are someone who wants to buy all new clothes for the new season, kudos to you. I admittedly have already bought some new Fall pieces, but I always like to think, work and shop smarter not harder. If I can save a dime, I’m all about it. If you found ways to transform your Summer clothes for the Fall months, I’d love to know below! As always, I hope this helps!

Matching Sets

Hello There,

Happy Tuesday! So happy we are already two days into the week and that much closer to the weekend again. I am also so happy with how this matching Rosetta Getty set actually turned out. I was a little apprehensive to order it using my Rent the Runway Unlimited Membership, but I figured since the Fall months are quickly approaching, there was no time like the present to see if matching sets were my thing. This one is GREAT! The quality of the material is evident and the small houndstooth print elevates the simplistic silhouette. The versatility of matching sets is really what peaks my interest. As a woman constantly on the go, I am impressed with the fact that you can wear the pieces either together or as separates. Its color palette holds the perfect warm tones for the chillier season and the sleek design makes it perfect to layer with light trenches for Fall. I wish I had a million and one of these. If I have convinced you to start searching for sets of your own, here are some options to consider. Hope you have a great rest of your week. Talk soon!

Lulu’s Floral Navy Trousers // Matching Floral Navy Blazer

Shein Polka Dot Knot Front Blouse and Skirt Set

AQUA Leopard-Pattern Top and Ruffle Trim Skirt Set

Ann Taylor Zebra Print Blouse // Matching Midi Skirt

Ann Taylor Diamond Jacquard Tie Waist Top // Matching Full Skirt

After doing some research for this post, Ann Taylor actually has a ton of matching sets on their site. They seem to make multiple pieces (blouses, trousers, skirts, blazers, etc.) in the same print, which is great for mixing and matching. Another company that I know does this a lot is Old Navy.

One of the Best Dress Silhouettes

Hi Babes,

Happy Monday! Babydoll, Tiered Popover, Empire Waist…whatever you may call it, in my personal opinion, this is one of my favorite dress silhouettes ever because it looks so good on many body shapes! Unless you’ve been living under a rock, I’m sure you’ve seen Hollywood celebs like Rihanna and Sandra Bullock rocking this style. It continues to re-enter our stores over the years and thus into our closets because it is truly one of the more forgiving shapes. These kinds of dresses have 3 great features: the empire waist, the fit and flare and the versatility.

If you are unfamiliar, an empire waist was first conceived in Napoleon times when Empress Josephine (hence the name) was influential in popularizing the style back in the 18th century. This kind of waist line is so interesting because it falls right below the bust line and a few inches above your natural waist line. The empire waist’s high line elongates the body making you appear taller and encourages a thinning shape. It’s like magic! Because of the high waist line that essentially cinches around your upper rib area, it allows the dress to fall in a fit and flare form. It is fitting enough in the bust to make it sexy, while still flowing at the bottom to give you an incomparable comfortability level. I love how versatile this silhouette is. You can dress it down to run errands with a pair of sneakers or sandals, dress it for work with a statement necklace and flats or dress it up for a night on the town with classic pumps. It can literally be taken from day to night.

If you are looking for your next classic basic, I highly recommend trying on this kind of dress. I have pulled together a few options from different retailers with a variety of price ranges. I’d also be interested to see what kind of silhouettes you are most into in the comments!

Amazon Swimsuit Review

Hi there,

Summer is here and, contrary to many people’s beliefs, I think it’s here to stay for a while. Thank goodness! You may think the time to buy a new swimsuit is over BUT think of all the pool parties, Labor Day Weekend celebrations and inevitable Christmas vacations still to happen this year. For me, I approached buying new swimsuits this season in the most economical way I could think, Amazon! I have seen so many bloggers I follow buy and do try-on hauls with some amazing Amazon finds, so I wanted to see for myself what all the hype was about. The best part about ordering from Amazon (especially with being a Prime member) is that I ordered my three new suits on Monday April 15 and, I’m not joking, they were on my doorstep Wednesday April 17th early in the morning. It was so fast; I was already super impressed. Off to a great start!

Below are the three swimsuits I ordered! I thought since consumers are still so skeptical about ordering clothes from Amazon, it would be beneficial, for anyone considering, to provide my honest review of the three pieces I bought. Read on as I rated all three on a scale of 1-5.

Gingham Print Two Piece

The first one I tried on was the gingham print, two-piece. The quality felt alright to the touch, but when I started to put on the bottoms, I heard the elastic stretch what sounded like a little farther than it should. I was so nervous that I had ordered the wrong size, a size too small. After putting the whole swimsuit on, I didn’t mind the fit of it, but it was far from perfect. The bottoms fit like a glove, slightly cheekier than I am comfortable with, but the top is what was really weird for me. The straps felt way too loose even after tightening them all the way, and I felt like I could lose the girls at any moment, if you know what I mean. On a scale of 1-5, I would rate this one a 2. Don’t spend your hard-earned money here.

Red, White and Blue Pom Pom Two Piece

The next one I tried one was the red, white and blue, pom pom two-piece. I cannot rave enough about this suit!! The fit is absolutely perfect, the colors are so cute, and I love the pom poms as a fun touch. The high-waisted bottoms hit in exactly the right spot on my stomach to cinch in my waist giving the perfect hourglass affect, and the top is adjustable to completely fit your needs. I ordered my true size, and it was 100% true to size. It is all around a GREAT swimsuit. I was actually so mad that I only ordered this suit in one color. I will definitely be going back to order at least two more of the different prints in this exact style. On a scale of 1-5, this one was a 5!

Pink Leaf Print One Piece

Last but not least, was the pink and green leaf print one piece. Another great find if I do say so myself! Not only is the print so colorful and poppy, which is great for Summer or a tropical vacation, it also fit me perfectly. Again, on this one I ordered my regular size and it was true to size. I also loved this one because it has the same appearance of a bodysuit, which would make it great to pair with jean shorts or a skirt to wear out (I did this already, as seen above). The straps are adjustable, and the quality feels like a typical Target swimsuit which is where I normally buy my swimsuits from. This one was hands down my favorite so on a scale of 1-5, I would give this one a 10!

For my first-time buying swimsuits on Amazon, I was pretty happy with my purchases. Two out of three were complete successes and made me want to be a repeat customer. If you are considering buying a swimsuit from Amazon, I highly recommend doing your research, reading reviews and studying the size chart. It can be a little daunting since there are so many options and you don’t get to physically try a piece on, but I hope this post gives you the confidence to take the leap. I am definitely looking forward to wearing these swimmies for the rest of Summer!

Sincerely,

National Lipstick Day

Hello National Day Lovers (This one is for you),

Another “National” Day is here, and my lips just couldn’t remain sealed! Happy National Lipstick Day! I have to admit that I have not always been into lipstick when it came to my everyday makeup routine. When I was younger, my mom would always have to remind me before I walked out of the door. I can hear her voice in my head now, “put something on your mouth.” I don’t know why I was so stubborn before and perhaps it came with age and a newfound professional career within the last year, but I wouldn’t dream of leaving the house without some sort of lip stain. It completes your entire look AND I think you appear way more put together. In honor of the national holiday, whether you are celebrating or not, I thought this would be a GREAT opportunity to showcase the three lip shades I am drooling over lately. All are linked with images of the actual product below.

P.S. I also got an email this morning from Ulta that they are having a huge National Lipstick Day sale on their site all day. Free full-size MAC lipstick with any $50 MAC purchase, Buy One Get One Free Mix and Match with a variety of brands, 50% Urban Decay, 2 for $20 Kylie Cosmetics, Buy Two Get One Free Clinique, 30% Lipstick Queen and so so many more deals. Check out the site here!

1. My go-to everyday lipstick: Kylie Cosmetics Velvet Liquid Lipstick in shade Bare. This liquid lipstick is EVERYTHING! It is the perfect shade of a pinky-nude and can be worn all day long, like literally. It stains your lips for a long-lasting plump for hours. Out to dinner, getting drinks, running errands or going to work? Use this lipstick because you will apply once in the morning and it will still be on by the time you get home at the end of the day. It’s my favorite because the color goes with my skin tone, I love that I only have to apply once a day and it comes with a lip liner pencil so you can slightly over line for the perfect, voluptuous lip for a price you can’t resist. I bought mine about 2 months ago and still have over half the tube left.

2.  For when I’m feeling sassy or a night out on the town, I always grab for my Revlon ColorBurst Matte Lip Balm in shade Unapologetic. The tubular shape makes this lipstick almost appear as an apple-red with a hint of orange crayon, you know the kind you can get in the big variety pack, which is perfect because it allows you to draw on your lips exactly how you wish. The hue of the color is completely dependent on you. Build it up to make it super dark and stand out or lightly apply for a more natural complexion. You also cannot beat the price for the quality. It’s only $8 (you can grab it at Walmart), lasts forever and comes in a million different shades.

3. My silent assassin shade, because I don’t think many people are as aware of this brand as the others, is my Lorac Alter Ego Lip Gloss in shade Granny. Odd name for such a sexy, highly-pigmented color which makes you feel like a new woman, perfect for the product name. I love this gloss because it’s super high quality, the applicator helps the gloss go on like butter and it nourishes throughout the wear stage. I will caveat that it does not stain the lip or stay on for hours, BUT that doesn’t bother me with this product, and I will reapply this stuff all day because that’s how good it is. The shade is a dark coral/pink and smells like Vanilla, which is a total added bonus. It’s so inexpensive on the Lorac website, and if this is not your color, the same gloss comes in a multitude of others.

Sincerely,

Hi Guys,

It’s still Amazon Prime Day! Prime Day is a 2-day marathon where Amazon deeply discounts a lot of their most popular items on their site. It may be in its final hours right now (you have about 12 left) but that doesn’t mean the deals are slowing down! I will make a caveat that in order to get in on the Amazon Prime Day deals, you have to be an Amazon Prime member. I highly encourage Amazon Prime because of the abundant perks you receive from the membership at a low monthly cost. You get free 2-day shipping, access to exclusive video, TV and movie content and get great discounts at Whole Foods (just to name a few). If you are contemplating a membership but aren’t ready to fully pull the trigger, you can sign up for a Free 30-day trial and still shop the Prime Day deals.

Powerful Jumpsuits

Hi Friends,

Out of all the articles of clothing, I feel my most powerful when I wear a jumpsuit. I’m not quite sure why. Perhaps it could be the masculinity of a men’s suit married to the feminine silhouette of a women’s dress. In my honest opinion, it’s the most comfortable, the most effortless and the one piece of clothing I can slip on no matter my mood and feel like I can conquer the world. Do you have any pieces of clothing that makes you feel this way too?

Where did the popularity of the jumpsuit originate from? Once upon a time, a jumpsuit sighting was rare. My earliest recollection of a time when jumpsuits were all the rage is in movies that took place in the 70’s. You’d frequently see the stylish women rocking a one piece as they’re dancing the night away at some club (think Farrah Fawcett’s emerald jumpsuit in Charlie’s Angels). That’s the thing…jumpsuits were too fancy for every day wear and too risqué for the office. Fast forward to the present, and you can’t walk down the street of any metropolitan area without seeing at least a handful of women rocking a jumpsuit in all different kinds of styles.

Jane Fonda called the jumpsuit “the epitome of a modern women’s wardrobe” and I couldn’t agree more. There are now jumpsuits for every occasion. Linen material and light weight for running errands, dressed up but conservative for weddings, form fitting and lace adorned for a night on the town or shoulder-covering and chic for the office. Whenever I go to any clothing retail brick and mortar, the first piece of clothing that attracts my eye is a jumpsuit. So much so, my mom has to steer me away or else all my money would go out the window and my whole closet would be filled with slip on one pieces.

The inspiration for the jumpsuit was drawn from the industrial overall uniforms people used to wear to protect themselves while at a hard day’s work. Fashion designers took this look and transformed it to fit the trendiest celebrities in the most famous movies. Then overtime, the jumpsuit went from Hollywood screens to acceptable on red carpets. Now, jumpsuits are the staple pieces every professional woman has in her closet. The evolution of the jumpsuit is actually quite incredible if you think about it. It has transformed into a piece of clothing that parallels a women’s busy life with the ease of slipping one article of clothing on and heading out the door. Thanks to Rent the Runway’s Unlimited Membership, I can now switch out the jumpsuits in my closet to align with every special occasion (or lack thereof) in my life. I have pulled together some of my favorites from the RTR site in case one of these occasions is coming up for you! All of these styles are available with the Rent the Runway Unlimited Membership.
