Sine NY is quickly becoming my go-to designer for events, special appearances, and well — life! Their collections are perfectly appropriate for just about any occasion I can think up. You will recall that I first fell in love with the brand during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week when I wore this hot little retro number to Cocktails and Couture.

Not one to leave well enough alone, I revisited the brand for my press trip with Aveeno to the Independent Spirit Awards in Los Angeles. And true to form, Sine NY did not disappoint.

For the award show I wanted to embrace the LA scene and go for cool, understated, somewhat relaxed chic…..(am I using enough adjectives or what?:)). Here I am wearing Party at the Plank Dress at the Independent Spirit Awards:


I paired the dress with these Christian Louboutin shoes and this Forever 21 clutch:

For the Aveeno Press Dinner, I wore Flares and Fireworks Dress with my own cognac studded corset belt and tough leather jacket.

This silk, front button dress is currently on sale for $30…so my one question for you is — What are you waiting for?

Cheers, buttercups!

Each season, as New York Fashion Week rolls around, I look forward to viewing the collections and critiquing the beauty/makeup. Another New York Fashion Week event that I have come to look forward to is Cocktails & Couture – the premiere networking event for online media, hosted by Veteran Blogger and Beauty Guru – Lianne Farbes. This twice a year fete is a swanky mash-up of the “Who’s Who” of the digital space. Brands and Bloggers connect and have one heck of a good time.

This year’s event was held at Aveda Advanced Salon…and here’s what I wore: Sine Retro Know Dress in Peacock — Here is the dress, as featured in InStyle

Here’s the dress on a dress form

Here’s the dress on moi at Cocktails & Couture media event

The dress was a huge hit. I particularly love the retro feel and forgiving ruching at the waist. I tried to “downtown” the dress a bit by pairing it with dark tights and a slouchy bulky suede boot (Tahari). I also added ginormous shoulder pads to push the dress from cutesy cocktail situation to a slightly edgier rocker feel…sort of.

And here I am hamming it up on the red carpet. I believe Beyonce “Single Ladies” was playing in the background. Now who doesn’t love dancing to that song?!

I am incredibly thankful to the lovely ladies at Sine for saving the day and graciously offering to outfit Ms ThisThatBeauty for New York Fashion Week. The Retro Knot Dress is affordably priced at $132.50 and worth every penny. The silk is of high quality and does not wrinkle easily. I loved that the dress is fully lined, thus eliminating the need for a slip – while providing a nice smoothing effect between the body and the dress. I strongly encourage you to visit Sine and check out their beautiful finds. If you’re interested in purchasing the Retro Knot Dress, I recommend possibly sizing down. I am generally a size 4 but the size 2 fits beautifully. Perhaps I’ve dropped a few pounds?…hmmm, not sure….but just thought I would share this observation to help you with your online shopping.

Well, I better get back to Lincoln Center. Fashion Week waits for no (wo)man. Bye-bye for now!
