After showing off the drama of this purple turtleneck dress and the weekend-ready style of the M2057 Tara Tunic, I was excited to share what might be my favorite dress of the bunch.

When I try on a dress I immediately look for a few things. I want a quality piece that will fit into my existing wardrobe – i.e. doesn’t require that you run out for a specific accessory or shapewear – And that’s flattering and easy to style.

This is a winner on all fronts.

The color is bold and fun, the silhouette is flirty and flattering, and it’s one of those great pieces that you can wear with anything.

Bonus? This little number has pockets!

Tell me – Which of the three Maria Pinto M20157 pieces did YOU like best? The fun turtleneck dress, the sleek black tunic, or this sweet little frock?

Now don’t forget to RSVP and come visit me & Maria Pinto on Friday, February 26th!

MCLV Style: Maria Pinto Tunic

In preparation for the Maria Pinto pop-up event next Friday here in San Francisco {RSVP & event details here} I’m going to share some of my favorite pieces from the new M2057 capsule collection.

Oh, the life of a blogger. We’ll do anything to get the perfect shot!

And while those first shots turned out beautifully – I loved the gorgeous color of the dress against the impressive architectural background – I found that I quite liked these more ‘daily life’ images just as much.

Why?

What this look lacks in drama, it certainly makes up for in comfort and wearability. This Maria Pinto M2057 Tara tunic is the piece you buy and never take off. Incredibly comfortable and flattering, plus it goes with everything.

In fact, I’ve already planned by next outfit with the Tara tunic – Paired with a pencil skirt and pearls for the office!

Maria Pinto M2057

Today I’m here to introduce you to an exciting new designer – Maria Pinto. Not only has she designed for big names {arguably the BIGGEST names} Oprah and Michelle Obama, she’s also designed fashions for Joffrey Ballet and The James Hotel in Chicago & the Skylark Bar in New York.

Her ready-to-wear capsule, titled M2057, is a beautiful collection of easy-to-wear pieces. Dresses, separates, and outerwear in bold, eye-catching colors and striking silhouettes.

The pieces have a distinctly architectural feel with an emphasis on structured silhouettes that are as flattering as they are bold.

You definitely pull out one of these frocks when you’re reading to make a statement!

What’s so impressive about this collection is its wearability. This capsule is ideal for mixing and matching, and will even fit seamlessly into your existing wardrobe. Throw a divine coat over jeans and a classic button-down or add one of these brightly hued dresses to your office rotation.

And luckily for all of my amazing Bay Area readers, Maria Pinto will be in San Francisco for a pop-up from February 23rd through March 1st.

And I’m thrilled to announce that yours truly will be joining her for an event on Friday, February 26th so mark your calendar!
