Event Report: The Pink Pump Fashion Show Presentation and Women of Power Beauty Brunch / Panel Discussion

Hello loves,

I am so excited to share the following Event Report with you, as this was a very special moment that deserves the spotlight! I recently attended the Special Needs Network's Pink Pump Women of Power Beauty Brunch/Panel Discussion, and was very proud and humbled to be one of the honorees of the day.

The Special Needs Network's founder, Areva Martin, moderated a panel on "The Changing Face of Beauty," and the discussion encompassed topics such as the ever-changing face of beauty in the fashion industry, female empowerment, and how to succeed in business as a working woman. I was so honored to speak about my humble beginnings, and my journey to where I am today, as the founder and designer of Single Dress. I also had the opportunity to discuss my creative process in developing our wonderful Single Dress Plus collection, an exclusive line of dresses and tops now available on Amazon.com. Single Plus empowers women of all shapes and sizes to feel fashionable and fabulous!

For the Single Dress Plus collection, we select beautiful and unique fabrications for our dresses and blouses. Many have stretch for easy comfort and movement, and the fabrics feel incredible as they are from Italy and France, where some of the most exclusive designers purchase their fabrics. Plus, every item is 100% proudly made in the USA! Each style is carefully curated for the woman who will wear it, and I love that we're empowering women "one dress or blouse at a time." This is what we ultimately aspire to do!

The fashion show was just incredibly exciting, please check out the visuals on our fun Instagram page @singledressplus.

What a beautiful and inspiring day it was indeed.

Outfit of the Day: Silk Bomber

Hello dears,

As Spring emerges and the florals begin to bloom, I thought it was the perfect time to wear my treasured vintage silk bomber! I love bomber jackets because they are so timelessly stylish, and can be worn in so many ways.

For this outfit, I paired the jacket with all black - simple skinny jeans, ankle boots, and a mirrored pair of aviator sunglasses. Some statement jewelry completed the look! See below for details...

Sunglasses: Ray-Ban
Jacket: Vintage
Earrings: Figaru by Olya Kislin
Belt: YSL
Jeans: Levi's
Bag: Vintage Chanel
Boots: Barney's New York

Hello loves,

On the eve of the most romantic day of the year, I am so excited to wish all of you stunning ladies a very Happy Valentine's Day!

There is so much that I love about this intimate day, from flowers to spending time with your special someone. I also love the idea of spending it with your gal pals, if you're sexy, strong and single. Celebrate Galentine's Day! ;-)

I've rounded up some of my favorite Single Dresses which are perfect for any occasion on February 14. I love the deep berry hue of the Alisa Scarf Point Dress, and the sexy beaded neckline of the Zelda Dress is just gorgeous. I'm also crushing hard on the Vicky Dress and the Brady Dress, both of which are currently on sale. Don't miss out on these beauties!

Wishing everyone a happy (and romantic) Valentine's Day!

Single Spotlight: Girls Night at Terroni Beverly

Hi my dears,

On a recent chilly evening in LA, some of my dearest girlfriends gathered to taste the latest Italian fare from one of my favorite local spots, Terroni.

If you're looking to find "carb heaven" in Los Angeles, look no further. This spot is a total pasta lovers delight, and on top of it, they have great wines to boot. I recently got together with a bunch of my girls on a Thursday night (which is one of the best nights to dine here) to discuss "women empowering women."

We couldn't leave the wine cellar, and the wine tasting was so glorious. We had some incredible conversation, and am so lucky to know these wonderful, inspiring women. The group consisted of my amazing cousin, Liza Glazer, our wonderful Annushka Anne Price, and the lovely Petya and Tatiana.

Fun LA nights just don't get better than this!

Single Spotlight: Flirty & Feminine Spring Blouses

Hello dears,

The weather is finally warming up here in Los Angeles, and I think it's safe to say that Spring has nearly sprung! I love everything associated with spring... warm weather, blossoming florals, and a feeling of joy and wonder.

I've gathered up a selection of my favorite Single Dress blouses which are flirty, feminine, and oh-so-perfect for Spring!

Our Bosley Blouse comes in a glorious array of fun prints, including a vibrant floral, a blue/green abstract paisley, a romantic dark floral, a sexy midnight blue leopard print, and a quaint and pretty bordeaux print. I also love our gorgeous Hi Low Lulu Blouse and our Eloise Blouse... both are so perfect for a leisurely brunch with the girls or a romantic date night!  

I've also recently pinned these beauties to Single Dress' fabulous Pinterest board! Be sure to follow along with all of our wonderful Single finds and the hottest styles on Pinterest... click here to follow Single Dress on Pinterest if you aren't already ;-)

Event Report: Shoes Galore with Neiman Marcus

Hello loves,

I absolutely adore when Neiman Marcus hosts small, intimate events, and when the event involves shoes... it's even better! The atmosphere couldn't have been lovelier at a recent wine sipping shoe event,  and running into friends while sipping Sauvignon Blanc and trying on the latest, most fabulous shoes doesn't get much better!

For the event, my outfit of the day wasn't complete without my favorite accessories including my distressed leather Chanel bag (I think I can even go grocery shopping with this one, it fits so much stuff and always manages to look elegant) and my earrings by Figaru by Olya Kislin (gorgeous fresh water grey pearls and pave diamonds).

Of course, I wore my favorite emerald green blouse by Single Dress, as I just love the feel of silk and the style of this gorgeous top. Click here to shop my exact look!

Single Spotlight: Galina's Pre-Valentine's Day Guide

Hello loves,

Valentine's Day will be here before we know it, so I thought it would be fun to round up a romantic guide of celebratory suggestions... and what to wear!

I am currently crushing on Single's sequined numbers, including the gorgeous Bianca Sequin Dress and Tina Sequin Tank. Both are just gorgeous and perfect for every type of Valentine's Day date! I love pairing the Bianca Dress with a killer pair of sexy red heels, or the Tina Tank with leather leggings and a cool bootie. Some other pieces I can't get enough of are below, including a few from Kaya di Koko ;-)

In terms of sexy Valentine's Day suggestions, I have a number of options perfect for every occasion. If it's a romantic lunch you're looking for, I love Geoffrey's in Malibu. A late afternoon lunch is so lovely, and especially romantic at sunset. You might even spot a celebrity or two! Brad Pitt is indeed single now ;-)

I also love the idea of the sexy restaurant at the Chateau Marmont. Dining in the lush beauty of its gardens under the stars is such a romantic way to indulge, sip champagne, and practice your French kissing techniques! Another lovely suggestion for a date night is a table by the window at the Sunset Tower Restaurant.  The piano always puts me in the mood for romance, and the amazing Demetrius, the Maitre D', will take care of all your magical needs.

Looking for a cultural alternative? How about a stroll through LACMA? There are Picasso and Rivera exhibits currently on view. And if you want to re-create a scene from the movie "The Notebook," head over to the Santa Monica Pier and ride the Ferris Wheel!

There are a lot of romantic spots to discover around LA, and you should sparkle when you arrive on these fabulous dates. These Single pieces will make you shine like the star that you are! Have fun exploring the shimmering, sexy side of yourself!

Single Spotlight: Miss Minus Sized

Hi loves,

Today I am excited to shine the Single spotlight on one of my favorite fashion bloggers, Sushmitha Gururaj of Miss Minus Sized. Her blog is such a delight to read, and I can't get enough of her stylish Instagram feed!

She is a loyal supporter of Single Dress, and has been seen rocking a number of styles from the collection which look just gorgeous on her! I love how she styles our pieces, and always comes up with unique, pretty looks!

Sushmitha wore the Ella Jumpsuit in a blog post that was completely chic, along with a statement bag that really made the look pop. She also sported the Cecil Beaded Dress in a cute daytime look blog post, as well as the Marina Peasant Blouse in a blog post that was part bohemian, part cosmopolitan, and completely cool. Lastly, I am in love with her blog post in which she wore the Koral Tank Top. Beautiful!

Be sure to keep your eye on this adorable blogger... she's definitely one to watch!
