Cocktail Suit  

Want an option for this holiday season and beyond that is not the typical dress?  Don't get me wrong, I love a good dress more than any other garment I wear! But sometimes it just feels right to break the mold and go for something fresh and chic and this season that would be… the cocktail suit!  

Whether you mix a blazer with a skirt or pants there are countless ways to create the perfect look.  Tuxedo style jackets or pants along with rich silk or velvet fabrics are some great examples of ways to rock this look. And don't feel like you have to go out and pick an exact set.  Find a jacket and a pant or skirt that you love and mix them together.  Club Monaco has some great options to create this look as does Vince and Alice and Olivia just to name a few.  And as always you don't have to break your bank to get this trend with stores like Top Shop and Zara. All the clothing pieces I am wearing for this trend are from Zara, so it seriously can be done on a budget!

After the holidays mix the blazers with jeans for a night out or take this look to an after 5 event or a wedding.So these pieces can be versatile for you for all year.

For my outfit and the example of how you can wear this trend, I did the ribbed turleneck tank. This is a more causal look with the suit. But, if needed, you can absolutley add in a satin or velvet camisole underneath for that dressier feel!

At least once this season put the dress down and suit up!

Gift Guide : Passion for Fashion Girl  

Now, this is for the trendy and all about fashion girlfriend of yours! These pieces are both practical for the season and yet super fun and feminine! I love a great accessory in my wardrobe and the holidays is a great time to give these type wardrobe musts!

Fashion accessoires are a great gift and can be very personal to the receiver, but also can be affordable for the giver! Win win!

  1. Earrings! One of my favorite gift items is always a fun pair of earrings.  For some reason I find people stay safe when buying their own earrings so I love to get them something out of their box. Here I have found two great options that I will definitely be giving people this Christmas.  As the trend of adding words on everything is everywhere these LOVE earrings are so fun!  And the multi-colored dangles add the perfect accent to so many outfits.

  2. Scarf: To me a great scarf is another amazing gift.  It too is something that people don't tend to buy for them shelves or when they do they buy a practical color like black.  With plaid and scarves being such it items this season you can combine two trends in one.  This scarf is super cozy and can pair with everything from a jean jacket for those who live in warmer clients to the sleeping bag I wear traipsing around New York all winter long.

  3. Leopard Fanny Pack: I love a fun yet practical trend and this little number is perfect for Secret Santa gift exchanges and gift giving for the fun person who seems to have everything.  This little guy is great for traveling, walking around the city, and can be easily thrown in a larger tote for days on the go.  Other options Here, Here and Here!

Gift Guide: Night In or Night Out

Gift Guide:

Girls Night Out or Snuggled Night In

This Gift Guide is made for the girl who loves to both get glammed up for a night out but also loves to snuggle up and be comfortable for a night in! This is truly for the beauty girl in your life!

I hope this gives you a fun idea of what to get the girls in your life! My moto when buying gifts for friends (or moms, SILS, MILS, etc) is “Would I enjoy receiving this?” If the answer is YES, you are golden. Happy Shopping!

  1. YSL Lip Stains: Stay on lip color is the best thing to happen in make-up that has happened in years.  I am a person who doesn't think she can leave the house without lipstick and I always hated reapplying it 20 times a day so when they came out with long wear lip color I was in love!  These go on like velvet, don't dry out your lips and give you amazing color for hours.

  2. Laura Mercier Lip Caviar: This product has been in my make-up bag for years.  These sticks give great color and they can be subtle or you can play them up for an evening eye.  They do not crease or get cakey and wear all day long.  Your eyes will look smoldering from applying to bedtime.

  3. Becca highlighter set: I love a glow on my skin anytime day or night and I have tried so many of them and this Becca one is hands down my favorite.  This kit will keep your skin glowing through the holidays and all year long.

  4. Pajamas: When people ask me what they can get me for Christmas I always say pajamas because I love them so much and never buy them for myself.  I love to be really comfy and even oversized when I go to bed but I have to have an incredibly soft fabric and nothing too warm.  These plaid pj's are absolutely perfect and check all my boxes!

  5. Poobah: I personally love games and especially ones that draw good honest conversations.  This game is one that is the perfect gift and also the perfect smaller gift to add to a bigger gift.  Take them on road trips, family game night, when having friends over, at dinner parties.....these cards will give you rich life giving conversation for hours.

Holiday: Velvet

Velvet  

This luxurious fabric is so wonderful for winter and is the perfect compliment to your wardrobe. And for holiday it can’t be beat as the perfect compliment to any look.  Mix this with the sparkles of the season and you will have a look that is so chic, fun and festive.  What I also love about this fabric is how this is perfect in a blazer but also amazing in a dress or pant.  

Paige did a gorgeous skinny pant this season in an incredible fuchsia, deep evergreen and black, see below! These are the perfect way to add this trend into your closet, especially if you want something a little more casual.  

What allows a piece to be even more special is when it combines a variety of trends in one garment like I am doing with this dress that I am wearing.....you have the velvet, suiting, and the every populor rich evergreen hue. I I love finding a piece that I can invest in, in a season, that hits multiple trends in one!
