Effortless Chic – Day to Night with Kora Rae

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.

  1. Totally agree with you about investing in great quality, well made pieces and I LOVE this top on you with the cut-out details and the navy color. Perfect date outfit for SF. 🙂 You have a great figure too and such toned arms, sometimes tops in that cut make my shoulders look too wide, but this is so stylish on you.

    Hope you’re having a good week.

    • Hi Dale! It makes so much sense to invest in quality! I am always disappointed in both the piece and myself when I have to get rid of cheaper things after a year or less! It’s totally the perfect SF date outfit…because it involves jeans! 😛 Thank you lady!! We all have to dress for our body types…my super straight figure makes structured dresses impossible to fit. xoxox
