New York is my favorite Real Housewives franchise, closely followed by Orange County and Beverly Hills. The new series of the RHONY has provided me with a new style crush – Kristen Taekman.

She is a genius at mixing high and low end labels and many of her clothes are high street brands such as Zara and H&M. She always looks so chic, on trend and put together – and totally appropriate for whatever contrived situation they throw the ladies into!
I was smitten with one of her latest looks – a beautiful white maxi dress – seen in this video here.
After a little research I discovered it was Zara from last summer! She looked stunning in it…I can only find show clips of her wearing it so the images are not great.
Here is the actual dress in case you find it on eBay!
I have found a couple similar that are available now – another here from Zara:
And this one from Mango which I have ordered to try – I think I prefer the simple straps on this one.
There’s also this one from ASOS.
Another dress which was featured on the same show was this gorgeous Alexander Wang khaki dress.
I patted myself on the back here as it is very similar to this stunning dress from Asos which is hanging in my closet, and which is now on sale here!
Kristen has her own website here which documents the clothes she wears on each show – it provides great inspiration – and I am amazed how many of the items are affordable for all of us! You can also catch clips of the show here on Bravotv.com.
So go on ‘fess up – who is your favorite Real Housewife?
