Style Diary: Glamour and Glitter
By Claire

Happy Wednesday!

Yesterday night I had dinner plans down by Washington Square Park. It was hot as Hades (NYC temps reportedly reached a high of 93 degrees!) so I slipped on a flirty little blue halter dress by Lu Pone & Vanderbilt from a store called Yamak down on Bleecker.

As far as accessories, I kept it relatively simple: a belt from Topshop, a black crystal silver mesh bracelet by Jenny Dayco, a Betsey Johnson clutch, and a Steven Shein Faux Real necklace I purchased at Patricia Field.

Not to be overlooked: my Miu Miu Glitter sandals.

I love them!

I had a little time to kill before dinner, so I caught some Real Style (coming soon), then sat in the shade and rocked out with another fave summer accessory: a hand fan.

If you live somewhere sweltering, I’d highly recommend this low cost accent. It keeps you cool and can look super cute. I purchased mine down by Canal street for $4.

What do you think of this week’s Style Diary?

  12. Erica B. says:

    These are my FAVORITE posts here — YOUR personal style! Love the look and your body is ridiculous these days!

  13. TiP says:

    I loved Jem and the Holograms! Loved the whole outfit, and somebody’s commitment to working out is showing, I see u! #salute

  14. For a dress like this, what type of bra do you wear? I’m sure strapless, but what brand? I always have trouble finding shapewear that flatters and works well for a larger bust.

  15. Claire says:

    Heyyy y’all. Thanks for the love. All that work on the stairmaster is paying off:)
    @South Loop Social LIght, I wore a strapless with this dress by Fantasie. Without divulging my size (ahem), they go up to a Z cup! LOL. They actually hold the girls up really well. They’re about $69 from Bergdorf, but I’ve had mine for years. It’s worth the investment. Get it here:

  18. You look fab! It looks like you had lots of fun doing this shoot.

  19. Starla says:

  20. yusufswifee says:

    okay so claire you look fab…as usual…I remember you saying that you are heavier up top, but you always look great in your sleeveless tops and things…please give a recommendation for a good strapless bra for larger cups….

    Love the shoes also.

  21. Salma says:

    Wow Claire, what a fun, flirty look, you look fab! PS, the stairmaster is doing you good girl, lean legs for days!

  22. N.Nicole says:

  23. Myssdee says:

    Claire you are so amazing

  24. Nakira says:

  25. sun.kissed says:

    That color looks great on you! They ripped you off with the fan though, they’re $1 here at the beauty supply stores!

  26. Claire says:

    @Sun.Kissed Thanks! I kinda knew I was getting ripped off. I offered the guy $4 and he was almost too quick to accept. Haha. I’ll know better for next time. xoxo

  27. ladyluo says:

    Great look. I MUST have those sandals!

  28. AD says:

    This DRESS is fire!

  29. Dobe says:

    Nice! Great skin!

  30. mtlveevee says:

  31. dyshaun says:

    Skin is popping!!!! Girl you making ‘em melt!

  32. ...A.k.A Melrose Parker says:

    Yesss Ur body is rockin!!! (no homo as well)

  33. WinnieMae says:

    Awww! Unfortunately Bergdorf doesn’t go up to a “Z” cup. I just missed the cut off. They only go up to a G cup. I’m a 34 around the waist and +G cup naturally. Yeah, I know. So I didn’t put myself in this sucky situation. Blame it on genetics I guess. Lol It’s really hard finding strapless bras for top heavy gals. I guess it’s impossible to keep my buddies up without the proper support. :P Thanks for the link though Claire!! I had my fingers crossed while clicking the link. Haha Anywho, you look amazing as always!! I always love your style! :)

  34. Claire says:

    @WinnieMae I exaggerated just a bit. The strapless actually goes up to a G. Check ‘em out here:

    Also, check out Figleaves.com and search for Fantasie/Freya. They carry a large range of sizes and come in pretty colors to boot. Good luck and thanks!

  35. Grace says:

    Lovin’ the look, you look great?!

    PS Are people still saying “no homo”?! Seriously?!

  36. GlammourGirl says:

    @WinneMae…I’m not sure where you live, but Intimacy goes up to at least an H…I know from personal experience. Nordstrom does as well in certain stores.
