Checkmate


As Indian Summer rages on here in Los Angeles, I’ve taken full advantage of the sweltering temperatures by playing in warm weather fashion(s) once again. Take for instance this cotton gingham dress by JNY. Nothing feels cooler than breathable cotton and I have a soft spot for black & white color duos. The cut and fit of this dress is fantastic, and reminds me why I truly appreciate well established brands such as JNY. I’ve been wearing JNY for more than twenty years, and have never been disappointed in the sizing, quality, or workmanship of any of their garments. Yes, JNY a.k.a Jones New York, has a fine longstanding reputation of integrity to their consumers. Side bar: On a cooler day not too long ago, I also wore this dress with my suede fringed jacket, black wool fedora, and silver penny loafers ;) 
-->Gingham CAN be carried over into Fall fashion successfully<--
I scored this dress brand new with tags attached via THREDUP, an online consignment and thrift shop. THREDUP encourages buyers to think of second hand shopping first, and also provides great options for cleaning out your own closet. The Co-Founder and CEO says, “We are transforming the way people think about secondhand, and we have the capacity and the energy and the vision to make that a part of people’s lives for 20, 30, 50 years.” 
THREDUP has a vast variety of sizes available, including a wide assortment of plus size options. I found the selection process to be a bit time consuming, but well worth it when I scored this brand new dress-with tags intact :) For a limited time, THREDUP is offering a 50% off promo code just for YOU! Score 50% off all cocktail dresses as a first time user, up to $50. Browse their selection here, and use code “COCKTAILS50” at checkout ;)

Until next time Babes,
