By now, you can probably tell my fashion philosophy is centered around high quality, classic pieces that make a bold statement – with minimal planning on my part. I especially appreciate a brand made with the labor of love, so when I had the opportunity to work with NYC based brand Kora Rae and designer Rachel Turzer I was very excited.
About Kora Rae
Kora Rae is everything I look for in a great piece: the finest quality of fabric, intricate details inspired by Rachel’s travels (such as embroidery hand crafted by artisans in India), and intuitively clean, simple, feminine. I love that you can take one piece, like the “Gabriel” top I am wearing here, and pair it with a basic outfit for an instant glam transformation. It’s a effortless way to look chic fast; Kora Rae’s designs do the work for you.
Aside from stunning designs, I love the social responsibility aspect of this brand. Rachel adopted a tiger at the National Tiger Sanctuary in Missouri, who she named Kora. A portion of every Kora Rae sale is donated to supporting the sanctuary, an appropriate connection as a female tiger’s bold elegance is embodied by Rachel’s designs.
See the Kora Rae Spring/Summer 2015 collection here. I will be styling more of these gorgeous pieces on the blog soon.
The Kora Rae Gabriel Top
I love the cut out detailing in this silk top, which could take me from the office (under a blazer), to cocktails on the town. The peplum flare adds elegance and the neckline brings the eye to the neck and shoulders – no extra accessories needed.

Jeans – J-brand
