How I Chose My Bridesmaids Dress

When Cath told me that we were all going to get to pick out our bridesmaids dresses I was SO excited.  I did this for my bridesmaids at my wedding and it was such fun and gave the photos such dimension.  Catherine gave us one guideline: black and we were free to go from there.  (more…)

What We’re Packing for Fashion Week: Tees + Metallics

 

We have found it is easiest when packing for NYFW to have a good strategy.  Otherwise it is midnight the day before you leave and you are staring in your closet like ‘where the heck do I even start?’  Each season we try to stick with a theme and expand on it. Sure, we all want to stand out to street style photogs, but that doesn’t mean you have to do anything too over the top! This year, Cath is leaning towards metallics and I am leaning towards graphic tees and straight up, basic black. We look forward to sharing our looks with you during our trip so make sure you stay tuned on insta stories – not only on @thecrystalpress but also on @cathclaire + @rebeccapiersol!

A Weekend on Shelter Island

Every time John and I go on vacation, I bring our TCP Nikon, pack outfits and fully intend on shooting multiple looks, locations and scenery. However, I always end up forgetting or choosing not to do that and instead fully enjoy vacation. Because, really that is what vacation is all about. That being said, I did want to document our amazing trip to Shelter Island, NY so I took a boat load (hehe) of photos on ze trusty iPhone.   (more…)

The Perfect Fall Transition Piece: RAILS

Well guys, I say this every year but how the heck is it already the end of summer! Where did the time go?  Between an absolutely crazy spring of weddings on weddings then kicking off summer with my sister’s wedding, I thought once that was all over it was going to be the one summer to go by slowly, savoring each moment.  Boyyyy was I wrong.  What did I even do all summer? Sure, there were Busch Gardens trips and plenty of pool days but seriously, what happened! Now it is almost fall, John went back to school today and I have a laundry list of things to do around the house, for ze blog and of course preparing for NYFW.  Sheeesh, not enough hours in the day, I’m telling you.  (more…)

Cold Shoulder Little Black “Dress”

On any given day, I am likely to experience the short-torso struggle at least once.  From barely being able to see over the steering wheel in my husbands car, to the serious struggle of finding a one-piece that fits, the struggle is real for Reb over here. When I picked out this
“top” in my first Le Tote, I had planned on pairing it with a nice pair of flare jeans, but to my surprise (well, kind of surprise) upon trying it on, it was clearly long enough on me to be a dress.  Sure, its a taaaaad short, but who doesn’t like rocking a baby doll dress every now and again?  (more…)

Helena Quinn Floral Robe

Every quarter I get The Zoe Report Box of Style and like to incorporate it into my OOTDs, as you may have noticed if you are a long time TCP supporter. This past spring I fell behind and only ended up showcasing the earrings, but alas, what can ya do?  that being said, I have got to say that this summer box is my favorite to date! I loved last summer’s with the Michael Stars caftan, but this one really takes the cake! This Helena Quinn robe + Raen sunnies are just too fabulous for words – so I’ll let the outfit do the talking! I am in no way sponsored by The Zoe Report (although I would welcome that, of course); I just seriously think this product is one of the best subscription boxes out there! At only $100 it contains $400 worth of stuff and this one was seriously fantastic.   (more…)
