Elevated Denim

My fiancè prefers that I wear white denim over my constant “the darker the denim the better” approach to my daily attire. When I scored these black and white striped beauts from ASOS, I immediately recognized them as a wearable compromise in skinny jean form. Cue the Maroon 5 “She…

Cath Claire Classic

Yes, I am a serial outfit repeater but I do it in the name of love. I know it is common practice among fashionistas to build a wadrobe and an outfit around classic pieces. Maybe its the trendy allure of the closet of a French woman, the miminalist movement, or the…

Dress Me in Possibility

With the Drake and JLo’s rumored romance on my mind, I have found myself listening to a lot of throwback music from the good ole days when I had an intense obsession with Jennifer Lopez. While I can’t tell you how old I was, I can tell you this JLo…

Heels Up, Listen Up

I have acknowledged on several occasions during the life of TCP that I am a self-help junkie. While some may dismiss self help literature as overindulgent and selfish, cathclaire (that’s me) thinks the complete opposite. Is learning how to show up as the best version of yourself for everyone in your life really a…

Don’t Stop Beliebing

When I purchased this Justin Bieber shirt from Forever 21, I thought writing a blog post about it was going to be a no-brainer. Not only because is it an awesome graphic tee but because I’m obsessed with Justin Bieber like……obsessed in the way that I know my beliberness annoys the shit out…

Roan if You Want to

Roan (noun): A realm of color, pattern, and texture that is never the same, never dulls, and has unlimited possibility. Richmond peeps, have you been to Roan in Carytown? If you haven’t, you need to get there. From one of a kind dresses for a special occasion to the perfect outfit for a drink at…

Fan Girl

If there is the best time to be in fashion for a blogger duo like The Crystal Press, I would have to say it is Spring/Summer fashion week in September when the weather is just right in NYC. Rebecca and I are still learning the ropes of this enchanting time of…

Blush Tones + The Clean Program

Blush tones are usually something I balk at, but I have been seeing them all over the blogosphere – and what can I say, I am persuaded. Ok thats a lie, the real reason I am into blush tones is because of the Glossier packaging. Let’s face it, a girl…

Live-in Culottes

I hope everyone had the best holiday weekend! I spent mine celebrating one of my best friends at her bachelorette party. A bunch of fabulous girls from NYC, Maryland, and Charlotte gathered in RVA for a fun-filled bachelorette weekend and I have to say, I had so much fun showing off…

Thursday To Do’s

The moon must be doing something weird because lately I feel like I can barely keep up with my to-do list. You know those times when you write your to-dos down, but on different lists and then you less than ideally misplace them? That’s me rn. Between fashion week prep,…

Queen of All Colors

“I’ve been 40 years discovering that the queen of all colours was black.”  — Pierre-Auguste Renoir Raise your hand if “does this come in black?” is your most asked question when shopping. While everyone’s hand but Anna Wintour’s is probably raised, this color is the queen of all colors. “It looks better…

Doing the Unstuck

Nothing says Happy Hump Day quite like a good ole soliloquy on feeling stuck, because let’s face it: everyone has times when this blah feeling creeps into their life.  There are different remedies depending on the stickiness of the situation, and if I had to make a comparison between concrete,…

Celine Dreams with Trendlee

Rebecca and I will be the first to tell you that new (Celine) bags are what dreams are made of… I mean, how can you not stare at the colors on this bag? I rarely experiment with this much color in one outfit (yet alone an accessory) and I have to…

Chambray Revival

While I wanted to continue to break out my spring dresses and cut-offs over the past week, mother nature decided that she had a whole-lotta-dreary weather on the agenda instead. When the April showers so rudely carry into May, Catherine’s fashion blogging plans must improvise – like a pop star who forgets their next dance…

Rebecca Minkoff Dev Dress

What goes through your head when you think of the month of May? I think of peonies blooming, The Temptations, The Met Gala, and (selfishly) my birthday. As I watch the looks roll in from the Red Carpet at The Met Gala tonight, I distract myself from not being in attendance (LOL) with the…

Yellow Lace in Venice Beach

Free People Slip Obsessed

I am obsessed with the versatility of Free People slips and constantly find new ways/excuses to wear them. I first discovered this Raven Slip style by Freeps during their Richmond Anniversary event last Spring and added it to my long list of Free People slips I love instantaneously. I wore it in…

Thred Up: NYFW Style

One of my favorite parts about visiting New York City is the feeling of possibility that is so contagious while amongst the hustle and bustle of the big apple. Although this feeling of possibility is a beautiful thing, it can make planning for Fall/Winter fashion week a bit tricky. If only you could have…

Whiplash

  Is it just me, or is Richmond weather giving you whiplash this fall? Waking up to 40 degree temperatures in dire need of a hot cup of joe this morning was a stark contrast to the past weekend’s comfortable warm weather and cold brew coffee. In addition to changing up my coffee…

Halloween Costume: Brandon Flowers from The Killers
