Blazered Up at Barclay Prime

Since living in Philadelphia for almost 6 years (time goes fast when you’re having fun!) I’ve been to almost every Stephen Starr restaurant. Except Barclay Prime… Known for it’s amazing cuts of steak and that glistening gold door, the restaurant has been on my must-try list for too long. Thankfully the other week I had a few days between traveling in California and heading to Cabo to get dressed up for a dinner meeting. I decided to dress up a pair of dark denim jeans with a navy blazer. This is one of my favorite blazers because of the slim fit and leather collar. Since the look is overall pretty dark in hue I added some interest to the outfit with three bracelets stacked on the same wrist.

This is my Strong Suit | Bonham Strand

Suit: Bonham Strand (custom by appointment) | Konstantino bracelet (similar)

 It doesn’t happen often, but when I put on a suit it needs to feel powerful! My style has morphed over the years becoming more athleisure leaving suits in the closet longer. As I’ve been working out the past few months… I needed to get something new that fits. I caught wind of a new suiting company based in Hong Kong that just opened up a Philadelphia division and ended up working with them to design the suit above. We decided to keep the fit trim and on the shorter side. Whether wearing a sleek pair of shoes or a statement bracelet (what do you think of my new Konstantino piece?) I prefer to leave some pant and arm room to not overwhelm my accessories with suiting. Fitted and feeling powerful!

How do you like to wear your suits?

Why You Should Go To Academy Ball 160

Philadelphia’s best white-tie gala of the year is happening again on January 28. I was so disappointed when it was canceled last year because of Winter Storm Jonas especially because the concert was to feature the Emmy and Tony Award-winning actor Martin Short. So you can imagine how excited I am that he’ll be performing this year!

The theme of this year’s event is Philadelphia’s Golden Heritage, and it’s the Academy of Music’s 160th Anniversary. I so enjoy this evening of great performances, food and drink with amazing company. How fun that after the performance at the Academy, gala-goers will promenade down the Avenue of the Arts to an elegant dinner and Ball at Hyatt at the Bellevue? Ahh, such glamour!

As a member of the Young Friends committee for the the event, I’m grateful I had the opportunity to work with the other three people you see pictured here, who are also members of the committee, Stacey, Matrin, and Alison. I’m excited I can finally share with you these images we captured during a photoshoot inside the absolutely stunning Academy of Music. For the shoot, the ladies wore dresses from Bedazzled Boutique in Newtown Square and jewelry from REALM, and I wore tails provided by Henry A. Davidsen. For the Ball, Martin will wear his own custom tails.

If you’ve never had the fortune of walking through its halls and ballrooms, please make it a priority to get yourself there! I promise you’ll be blown away… But then, with these photos, you don’t really have to take my word for it, do you?

Buy tickets to the Academy of Music.
