Holiday Lookbook 2016

Velvet Dress Bacara IMG 2489  zps5nn2nwzd Holiday Lookbook 2016

Holiday outfits are always my favorite because it’s finally cold enough to break out all my velvet, leather and super soft furry items. You will find all three of these fabrics in both of these looks. In a recent interview I was asked what my favorite fall trends were and it’s definitely velvet dresses paired with furry bags. It is very important to be comfortable around the holidays too. Since a lot of time is spent eating and lounging, I think a dress is the perfect option.

This first look features one of my favorite vintage velvet dresses and my mohawk style furry top tassel bag.…

How to Style: Pieces outside your “fashion comfort zone”

TheVelvetDress Shoot2 00dfs01 zpsi7bvenm3 How to Style: Pieces outside your fashion comfort zone

One of my resolutions for this upcoming year is to wear more color, as I wear a lot of black. So when I saw this beautiful printed dress with velvet floral details from Blackwater Boutique, I knew that it was the perfect piece to start off my color collection. This pale pink is not a color I usually wear. Though it has quickly become one of my new favorite pieces because it has really forced me to go outside my comfort zone; now I find myself looking at other items in this color. So I think it’s always good once in a while to take a little fashion risk.…

Closet Staples: Rompers

Hopefully this is my last warmer weather outfit for at least a few months as it is now finally just started to get a bit cooler. I can’t wait to break out all my velvet, faux fur, shiny leather and cashmere! However, today’s look is just a simple daily outfit of what I typically slip on for a busy day. I think a comfortable romper is the perfect item for this, especially for when you need to get out of the house fast. You put on just one item and then slip on some shoes and grab a bag; you can be out the door in literally less than five minutes.…

Closet Staples: Classy Black Dress

A must have item in any woman’s wardrobe is a classy black dress. I’m sure most of us already have the LBD (little black dress) but that is usually more in reference to a going out or “party” dress. This black dress is more of a step up, a piece you can wear during the day or on a night out. In my opinion, a classy black dress should preferably hit at least to your knees, while still maintaining a feminine silhouette. This super soft bell sleeve dress is the perfect classy black dress for fall and winter. It is long sleeve and comes about to the knees but still shows off the low neckline, waist and feminine bell sleeves.…

Closet Staples: Statement Accessories

untitled 12 zpshfh3ocun Closet Staples: Statement Accessories

With festival season and summer in full swing I wanted to share my ultimate favorite statement accessory. This is the item I would wear to almost any festival or event where I’m dancing a lot. Not only does it take literally a second to put on but it also makes the outfit 10 times more extravagant. To prove this I put on a fairly simple plain black look. There is some velvet burn out details in my pants and my cardigan is furry but that’s it. I wore my favorite trusty hat with the silver hardware to match the belt, but not nearly enough silver to overshadow it.…
