Embroidered Off The Shoulder Dress

DRESS: ASOS (size down, wearing US2) | HEELS: Jessica Simpson (TTS, highly recommend) | HANDBAG: Louis Vuitton (dupe for it HERE) | SUNGLASSES: Karen Walker (25% off today!!) | WATCH: Michael Kors | EARRINGS: local purchase (similar style) | LIPS: Beige Tribute +Whirl (more Whirl to get darker color) + Undressed | RINGS: Gorjana 

Hello from NYC! I'm flew in last night for a quick project and am leaving today (check it on Snap (@emilyanngemm) to see what I'm up to!)  It is SO cold here - the weather in OK has been so wonderful lately. In fact, if you follow on Snapchat/IG you may have seen I wore this dress Sunday afternoon! I love the aztec embroidery on the ruffle. It's also around $60 which is a good price point for the quality!

Okay, so when I travel I always download books on my Kindle. I love books that are murder/mystery.. those are actually my favorite types of movies, too. Anyway, I got on the plane and realized I didn't have a book so I downloaded a book by Karin Slaughter. The last I read by her was SO good - it was called Pretty Girls. Now I'm reading one called Blonde Hair, Blue Eyes.. both are mystery. Anyway, if you are looking for a new book I recommend Pretty Girls.. and I may have another recommendation in a day or so when I finish this one. 

I'd love to hear some of your book recommendations. I loved Gone Girl, Girl on The Train, & Luckiest Girl Alive. Have you all read any of those?!?! 


  1. I miss NYC so much! Enjoy it and good luck with the work too.
    Beautiful photos and this is a gorgeous summery dress too! :)

  5. The girl with no past is a great read similar to luckiest girl alive and girl on the train!

  6. That dress and those shoes=fab! Love this outfit!

  7. I love off shoulder and I love emnbroidered things so this is like the most perfect dress ever!

  8. LOVE this dress! I am loving so many off the shoulder dresses! Love that the price points are not crazy expensive!

  9. Love your heels! I feel like that's a must-have color!

  10. love this look, so cute! I cannot wait to read pretty girls, I loved girl on the trian and gone girl!

    Happy travels //

  11. If you loved Gone Girl, you will love Dark Places and Sharp Objects by the same author! Murder and mystery!!

  12. That dress is super cute!

  13. That dress is amazing and it looks great on you!! That book that you are reading sounds good too. :-)

  14. So cute! Also, I loved those books as well. It's not a mystery/murder book, but I just read The Orphan Train. It was such a great story, I loved the characters and couldn't put it down.

  15. Adorable dress and heel combo! absolutely love! XO


  16. Cute outfit! Enjoy NYC and keep warm!


  17. I love your shoes! They are so cute! Have fun in NYC!!

  18. If you love murder/mysteries, I'd recommend the "...In Death" series by J.D. Robb. There are so many, you can read them out of order, but I'm OCD and have to go in order. Those will keep you busy for awhile! :)

  19. Love your curls! Wish mine would not droop 1/2 through the day...any tips on keeping the curl?
    "The Good Girl" by Mary Kubica was a good read, and along the lines of suspense/murder/mystery.

  20. Okay, I feel like we are the exact same person.. I know that sounds creepy & you probably hear that all the time but really:

    I'm engaged to a 3rd year medical student, I think Luckiest Girl Alive was the best book EVER!, I have a marketing degree, I love literally everything about Tulsa (my BFF lives there), & I love fashion.

    I am so glad I found your blog.. I actually just found your IG as well.. I'm the one who asked about you making a Poshmark earlier today!

    Keep up the good work, beautiful!

    XO Miranda

  21. I love the Karin Slaughter books! I don't know if I've read Blonde Hair, Blue Eyes yet, I'll have to check it out! I agree, you might like The Good Girl by Mary Kubika as someone mentioned! It was pretty good.

  22. Off shoulder is a trend that I like so much! Nice choice my dear! Kisses from Italy,

  30. Hi Emily! What size did you end up getting in these shoes? I just had to order a half size up from my regular size 7.5 in another pair of Jessica Simpson shoes and am wondering if I will need to do the same with these. I'd really appreciate your advice on sizing. Thank you in advance for your help!
