Karen Kane Cerulean Chevron Print Shift Dress

As you may have noticed, Commandress is getting a makeover! While we’re wrapping that up, we’re going to share a series short posts about quick & easy updates for your wardrobe.

Ah, cerulean. This color will forever be associated with one of the best scenes in The Devil Wears Prada.

Here’s an interpretation of that cool blue that’s a feminine play on ultra-conservative navy and classic menswear prints.

The name of this Karen Kane Cerulean Chevron Print Shift Dress is what first caught my eye, but the design is what I love about it.

The dress is $148 from Nordstrom or Karen Kane. It’s also Made in the USA and washable.

Pre-Fall Wardrobe Update – Paisley Print Tops

As you may have noticed, Commandress is getting a makeover! While we’re wrapping that up, we’re going to share a series short posts about quick & easy updates for your wardrobe.

Today I want to share a beautiful paisley print top that caught my eye at Bloomingdale’s – it’s a perfect item for transitioning from summer to fall.

In addition to looking fantastic, the top is washable, under $100 and Made in the USA – three things that we love around here!

The Status by Chenault Paisley Print Peasant Blouse is $78 from Bloomingdale’s, which shows it both tucked and untucked. I’m not familiar with this brand, but they have a lot of cute print tops at Bloomingdale’s.

This top also reminds me of one of my favorite season-spanning tops: this Made in the USA paisley tunic by Glam that I found at the Fab’rik at Emory Point. (Photo by Elle Smith Photography)

PrAna Phoebe Tank Top for Yoga and Beyond

Yesterday, I wrote about two brands of women’s activewear new to me. Today’s post is about a brand I already know and love.

Two years ago, I bought my first PrAna Amaya athletic dress. It’s flattering and comes in lots of fun prints. Now my wardrobe includes three Amaya dresses. They’ve held up great, and PrAna has become one of my favorite activewear brands.

A Yoga Top Pretty Enough to Wear Outside of Class

There is a PrAna top I have my eye on for its sporty design and gorgeous prints. PrAna’s Phoebe Tank Top has a shelf bra and a X-back design that’s attractive – as well as perfect for yoga and other activities. It’s also Made in the USA.

Several online sites carries the Phoebe Tank Top in different patterns.

The Phoebe Tank Top in Blue Pixie (below), Black Pixie and Viola Pixie is available from Zappos. ($65)
PrAna Womans Yoga Top Activewear

Garnet Hill has the Phoebe Tank Top in a Black Print (below) as well as an Indigo Print. ($65)

Sierra Trading Post has the Phoebe Tank Top in three colors in XS, S and M on sale for $42.95

6pm.com has the Phoebe Tank Top in Plum Red Quito in L on sale for $52.99

The Phoebe Tank Top is made of recycled materials – as is much of PrAna’s activewear and other products. PrAna is a brand to have on your radar if environmental sustainability is a cause you care about.

Fun Fact: PrAna was the first North American company to produce and market Fair Trade Certified clothing.

Online, Zappos has the largest selection of PrAna activewear, gear and equipment. If you are interested in checking it out, click here.
