Get to Know Dede Raad
Dede Raad has loved fashion since she was a little girl. Now, she's living her dream of sharing her styling tips and stories via her blog Dress Up Buttercup.
What is your favorite part about running your blog? What have you learned from this work?
Oh my gosh, this is the hardest question since I have so many favorites! From connecting with other people, to traveling and playing dress up every single day, I really can’t narrow it down to one. There are so many amazing opportunities while running a blog. I have learned that we all are different. Not everyone runs a blog the same, collaborates the same, wears a certain shirt the same way. Each person is so unique!
What is your current Ramy Brook obsession?
The pink Paris dress. I explain in every detail why it was my favorite on my blog post but I just love that you can wear it backwards or frontwards and the dress makes my legs look ahhhamzing!
What style(s) are you most excited about for fall?
Oh my gosh so many! I especially am loving the silk and velvet trend. I never thought I would say that since that I never saw myself going for either/or! They use to remind me of my mom's outfits in the attic, but now I can’t get over them!!
What are your go-to year-round accessories?
My studs and bracelet stack. I wear my big watch and David Yurman bangles all year long. I instantly feel dressed up with my stack on.
Where do you go for style inspiration?
Since I currently am in New York for fashion week, I would say fashion week. It’s such a magical time to watch creatives come together and share what is on trend. It really is so inspiring and I always leave in awe! I also go to Pinterest or window shop at high end places for inspo.
