Hi from San Francisco! We got here yesterday around lunch time and we’re SO excited for tonight’s live show! Last night we had a fun dinner with Victoria + a few other friends and today will be a whirlwind – work in the morning and then hair + makeup, a photo shoot, and sound checks at the venue. It all sounds very official but I assure you, it’s not. We have no idea what we’re doing but we are learning as we go and having a blast doing it. The show is at 8pm at Cobb’s Comedy Club and we still have tickets available so if you’re in town I’d love to see you! ALSO today is a big day for the pod – our Graham Norton interview is finally live – I hope you love this episode as much as I do!
Last week I rounded up four of my favorite trends for fall but I definitely left one thing off and that is dressing like a witch. I mean this is truly nothing new for me (see a couple more witchy looks from 2015 and 2016 – I still have both of those dresses and wear ’em on the reg). But a long, dark hued maxi dress (preferably with a bit of metallic in it), paired with a chic ankle boot? INTO IT. Add a little moto jacket when the weather cools off (I have a great one from Eileen Fisher that I got last year but if I didn’t have that one I would be all over this one – or this, for something more affordable!)
Dresses Under $200
Speaking of affordable – this dress (while amazing) is pretty splurgey so I’ve also rounded up some under $200 options below! There are SO many good ones!
Click through the widget above for some very fun under $200 metallic maxi dresses at every size. I tried for inclusive and settled for mixing up specifically straight size and specifically plus size. I personally love this gold one (so dramatic – pair with strappy sandals for something more formal), and on the plus size front this is absolutely amazing.
As a sidebar; I’m definitely watching Practical Magic when I get home this weekend. The book is one of my all time favorites but the movie definitely scratches an itch I get every fall! I can’t believe the movie came out in 1998… that makes me feel old!
