Girl About Town: Making Office Black Pop

Today's Girl About Town is a simple look (pulled off in that effortless chic manner we all strive for) that can otherwise go oh so wrong. Office black has long been a chic staple, but how do you make sure you don't look like you're on your way to an after-work funeral? With on-trend pops of color and sweet details.

Nice work random girl at Starbucks!

A shirt-dress version of the LBD is office appropriate and stylish with just a bit of pizzaz added in the accessories. Our Girl About Town adds glam to this simple look with her patent leather belt and shoes and matching turquoise purse and necklace.

The urge to brighten this outfit with bold colored shoes was resisted and the overlook is more put together for the effort. Black pumps can still be sexy, especially with trendy details like bows.

Wanna try this all black look with poppy accessories? Here's your starter kit...

Black Y-3 long-sleeve shirt dress (on sale now).

Turquoise bead and sequin necklace from Nordstrom.

Asos patent leather skinny belt with gold details (only $20!).

Marc by Marc Jacobs turquoise hobo/satchel purse.

Kate Spade Cammie Shoes with Bows (on sale now).

Summer is all about reliving your best childhood lazy days. Lounging at the beach, family bbqs, the smell of Hawaiian Tropic and of course... jellies! This summer, update your fav childhood footwear to match your big-girl life with one of the following trendy choices.

Fire-engine red AND there's a bow? These will look sweet with your teeny weeny red bikini!

We're Official!

Two and a half months after our wedding day, the great state of California finally sent us some proof that we are truly husband and wife! We were a little excited.

I know we're corny, but here we are outside the Social Security Administration after we officially changed our names! Did I mention we were excited?

Reason #3 to Visit Orlando

TRIVIA NIGHT! That's right, Central Florida has an abundance of locations where you can partake in two of the Ford's favorite activities: drinking and being smart.

This weekend, we went out with our besties for a round or two and had a grand old time. Last time we played J and I came in dead last, but this time we were fourth out of about 15 teams. Not too shabby!

Erik has the technology and current events, Lindz is science, J is all about sports and history and I am the arts and culture girl. Together... we are the dream team.

Well, we are possibly missing someone with a dirth of random outer space and political knowledge so if you fit the bill, come on out! There's always room for one more. Unless you smell...

Lust List: DVF Kindle Covers

Ok. Let me just start by stating the obvious... If Diane Von Furstenburg designed it, I probably covet it pretty hard. Therefore, without further ado... the newest addition to my lust list: A DVF designed canvas Kindle cover (go ahead, say that 5 times fast).

Yes, I would much rather own an iPad, but Im not too sure DVF makes cute covers for those so....

There are 4 snappy designs and each one is cuter than the next with her signature (and this season's very hot) African inspired patterns. Gives a whole new definition to geek chic, if you ask me.

Oh yea, I wouldn't mind if someone wanted to buy me a kindle either...

The Uniform Project: On Sale Today Only

Ever feel like you wear the same thing just about every day? Maybe that's not such a bad thing... That's the idea behind The Uniform Project, wherein one single versatile dress becomes the base for every day of the years' outfits.
"The Idea: Starting May 2009, I have pledged to wear one dress for one year as an exercise in sustainable fashion. Here’s how it works: There are 7 identical dresses, one for each day of the week. Every day I will reinvent the dress with layers, accessories and all kinds of accouterments, the majority of which will be vintage, hand-made, or hand-me-down goodies. Think of it as wearing a daily uniform with enough creative license to make it look like I just crawled out of the Marquis de Sade's boudoir."

Sound kooky? Here are just a sampling of the myriad ways to style "the dress" available today only at with the special code below.
Love what you see or just want to learn more? Enter code DailyCandy (case sensitive) here to order the premier edition of the Uniform dress TODAY only.
