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.

    • Thank you doll! I love her pieces too, it really is so well done, keeping it classic with the right amount of edge. Happy Sunday!

  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
