Cream Shift Day Dress Posted on 24 Jun 10:14 , 5 comments


An outfit you can run in! Living in New York City requires a lot more walking than most people realize- especially if you take the subway to avoid rush hour traffic. I am always running somewhere- to a meeting, to pick out textiles or drop something off. If I need to travel from one location to the next while working, I will most likely be running part of the way. Partly because I always have somewhere to be, and partially because it's a great way to stay fit. Since I run so much, I LOVE the women's patent leather dress shoe trend. It's a great way for women to be on trend, dressy, and comfortable at the same time. You don't have to wear heels and you can wear socks. (I think you can be more productive if you are wearing comfortable shoes, so that's another plus.) 

Stylist Lauren Abbondola dressed up the shift dress by adding megawatt Laruicci earrings and Guess women's black patent leather dress shoes. Adding a jacket would have made it appropriate for the office, but the styling made the Kate Stoltz shift dress feel young, fun and appropriate for a stroll around the neighborhood. Hairstylist Katie Albright added a 'bend' to my hair, using her magic to make my hair look amazing. Photographer Matt Licari waited till the lighting was perfect and not to harsh, then proceeded to shoot the look in the McGolrick Park location in Brooklyn, New York.kate stoltz nyc shift dress

 

The Cream Shift Dress is an 'all day dress' in the Kate Stoltz Fall 2016 Collection. The brocade dress is fully lined with 100% silk.

Riverside Park on the Upper West Side Posted on 28 Jan 08:30 , 2 comments

Sometimes I will leave work and see that the sun is starting to set, and will run a couple of streets where I can take in the view.

I took a stroll out to Riverside Park yesterday evening after work, which runs from 72nd street to 125th street on the West Side in Manhattan. The cotton candy sky and the lights on the New Jersey side of the Hudson made the walk worth while.

The dress that I was wearing is a bespoke custom made Kate Stoltz piece that you can purchase here: www.katestoltz.com . The sleeveless, cream colored brocade dress is a versatile staple that can be worn in many different places. You can wear the Kate Stoltz dress with a jacket, tights and heels like I did, or pair it with tall boots and a statement necklace for a younger look. The high quality brocade and the silk lining feels luxurious and comfortable while looking sharp enough to wear to an important interview or dinner.

Stay warm and enjoy your day!

XO, Kate Stoltz
