Happy New Year!

Monday, December 31, 2012

A tulle skirt is not the most practical of clothing options, but I could not resist buying this and making it work for New Year's.  It is such a ridiculously fun skirt to wear - swish swish swish - a great way to ring in the New Year.  Making this skirt evening appropriate is a no brainer, so I had fun putting together a brunch look.  Check in tomorrow to see what it looks like.

I hope you all have a safe and happy New Year's Eve and may 2013 be filled with all of your heart's desires.  I wish you all an abundance of happiness and may you always be surrounded by people you love.

Christmastime, part 1

Saturday, December 22, 2012

{Top: J.Crew (last seen here); Skirt: 3.1 Phillip Lim; Booties: Pour La Victoire; Necklace: Furla}

{my best Vanna White impression}

Of course red is the most appropriate color for the season, so when I saw this skirt, I knew I needed it for the holidays.  It's fun and flirty and can be worn dressy or casual.  This daytime look can work for a holiday brunch or even high tea with girlfriends.  Stay tuned for tomorrow's post featuring the skirt in a Christmas dinner look.

For all you who celebrate, Merry Christmas!

Perfect pink peplum...for play

Ready to go out after a long day at the office?  I love the versatility of this skirt - all you need is a statement necklace and killer heels and you're ready for a night out with good friends, good food and good drink.  Plus, the color definitely stands out.  Happy Friday!

Perfect Pink Peplum...for work

Thursday, December 13, 2012

{Blazer: Benetton; Tank: J.Crew; Skirt: Alice & Olivia (on sale!); Heels: Miu Miu}

{Bracelet: Stella & Dot; Clutch: Stella & Dot}

I don't think I've ever loved a trend as much as I love peplum - it's flattering, it's slimming and it's fun.  I'm not one to wear bright colors as a bottom, but I couldn't resist this skirt and all the ways I could make use of it to add color to a Fall wardrobe.

Vintage for the Holidays

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

{Dress: Shareen Vintage; Belt: Bebe; Shoes: J.Crew; Pearls: J.Crew}

When I first tried on this dress at Shareen, I thought it was going to look too costumey.  I liked the fit so much, though, that I brought it home and new I could make it look more modern by adding accessories.   I adore the rouching on the sleeves and the all over heart pattern.  It makes me feel ladylike and young all at the same time.  Plus the color makes it very appropriate for the holidays.  

Hope you are all enjoying all the festivities December brings.


Holiday dressing

It's that wonderful time of year of holiday parties and Christmas dinners and Secret Santas and every other reason just to get together with friends and family to eat and drink and be merry.  And, of course, each of these occasions requires a fabulous outfit to go along with it :).  Stay tuned because over the next few weeks I'll be posting my outfit ideas for the holidays and will be showing how to take key pieces from work to play.  

This peplum top has become such a staple in my closet.  I love the way it fits, how the silhouette not only compliments midi skirts, but also skinny jeans and as a result is completely versatile.  This outfit easily takes me from work to dinner with friends.  What are your staple pieces?
