Black (Bow)Tie NYE

IMG_5452

Like it or not, 2014 is nearly over, and we are a day away from toasting the year 2015. New Years Eve is one night of the year that you have to look fabulous. Why would you want to ring in the new year any other way? Usually, my go to for NYE dressing is something VERY sparkly, usually in the form of a dress. While sparkly dresses (or anything sparkly for that matter) do hold a very special place in my heart, I thought this year I would go in a different direction. Lately, I have been loving menswear inspired looks for women. I think it looks strong and sexy in an unexpected way. A couple weeks ago, I stumbled upon this awesome tuxedo shirt at Urban, and have been waiting for the right occasion to bust it out. Of course, I couldn’t really do New Year’s without any sparkle, so I took this sparkly bow, which is actually a hair clip, and turned it into a bowtie. Voila, you have a tuxedo inspired look that will be sure to stand out in the sea of sequins.

Merry Christmas!

IMG_5345_2

Christmas is just two days away and I just can’t believe how this month has flown by. I am definitely not ready for the holiday season to be almost over! In the event that you’ve got some fabulous party to go to in the next couple days, here’s one last holiday party look for you. This year, instead of wearing a dress, I decided to try a high waisted skirt and crop top combo. This skirt from Chic Wish is such a rich shade of red, it just begs to be worn for Christmas parties, plus its just downright fun to wear because of how big it is.

As Christmas fast approaches us, I hope you all have an amazing time spent with friends and family. Thank you for reading and Merry Christmas! xo

Gold Sequin Pants

IMG_5285

To say that I gravitate toward sparkly things is a bit of an understatement, but pants covered completely in gold sequins can still be a little daunting even to the most serious of sequin lovers. I will admit, walking around The Grove in these made me a little self conscious at first, but I quickly got over it because the pants are awesome! They are dressy and festive, and look equally great with chucks or heels. These pants are definitely a solid choice if you want to stand out at a holiday party. However, with pants this loud and sparkly, its important to keep the rest of your outfit relatively simple and un-sparkly. There’s a fine line between looking fabulous and outshining the Christmas tree…in a bad way. 😉

Merry and Bright

IMG_5175

Get ready, because exams are over and my outfits are about to get super festive. As you are probably aware, not all holiday parties are super dressy affairs. However, during this time of year, I somehow can’t help the fact that all I want to do is get dressed up all the time. After all, there aren’t too many occasions during the year where one can get use out of a sequin pencil skirt. To dress this skirt down, I went for some funky metallic boots, although sneakers might also be a fun choice as well. A beanie and a whimsical sweater add to the fun, casual vibe of this outfit. Ok, maybe a sequin skirt is never that casual, but its the holidays…tis’ the season to be sparkly. Just do it. 🙂

On the Fringe

IMG_5113

I’m not ashamed to say that I am a little bit very obsessed with fringe. Surprisingly though, I have not always loved this jacket. My younger sister got me this for Christmas a couple years ago from a vintage store, telling me that I “could pull it off.” Well, she was right, but at the time I was not convinced. It wasn’t until recently that I had the epiphany that maybe this jacket is awesome. I guess the lesson learned here is that sometimes your younger sisters know better than you…key word being sometimes. 😉

Ribbons and Bows

IMG_5232

December is already upon us, and I couldn’t be more excited about it. The holiday season has always been my favorite time of year. I’m a sucker for all things Christmas: the music, decorations, movies, baking cookies…I even love going to crowded malls and shopping for presents too, believe it or not. Another awesome part of the holiday season is all the different parties and events. Obviously, dressing festive is a must. When I found these pumps, I had to have them because they are gorgeous and perfect for wearing to Christmas parties. Also, they look just like the much more pricey Aminah Abdul Jillil pumps that I’ve been drooling over for more than a year now. These pumps make me so happy, I don’t even care that I can barely walk in them because of their height! Who needs to be able to walk when your legs look like presents?? 😛

Turkey Day Outfit

IMG_4993

Well, it is Thanksgiving already. I personally love Thanksgiving. Usually, I’m the one in the kitchen all day, running around cooking a huge meal for my LA family. Obviously, if I am going to slave away that hard in the kitchen, I am going to EAT. This means you have to plan your outfit accordingly. Thanksgiving is not the day to be wearing a form fitting outfit, unless you want everyone to potentially see your food baby. My advice to you is this: wear some pants with a little forgiveness, and put on an over-sized sweater. This way, nobody has to know how much you ate.

Dressed in Plaid

IMG_4716

This plaid shirt dress has to be one of my favorite pieces I’ve bought this season. First of all, wearing this feels like I am going out in a really comfy nightdress. I haven’t worn a nightdress since before I was 10 years old, but this is so cozy that it reminds me of what they felt like. Secondly, this dress is pretty effortless. I just throw this on with some fun jewelry and boots and BAM, I’m ready to go. Third, its plaid and who doesn’t love some plaid in the fall? I look forward to layering this with sweaters when it finally starts to get chilly around here, but who knows when that day will come. Sorry ’bout it for all the 200 million people out there who have that nasty “polar vortex” to deal with this week!

All Black Everything

IMG_4969

Congrats everyone, you have made it to Friday! I love the weekends just as much as the next person, but lately I have been taking full advantage of them by just being lazy around the apartment. My schedule has been nothing but school, work, and more work lately, so all I want to do on my days off is stay in and order takeout. I know, glamorous, right? In the event that I do decide to get off the couch, the last thing I want is stand in my closet for 20 minutes trying to figure out what to wear. That’s where going monochromatic comes in handy. Wearing one color (or in my case, non-color) makes figuring out what to wear simple. If you want to spice this up a bit, play with different textures and proportions. There you have it, my guide to lazy day dressing. Now get out there, all you weekend warriors…or don’t.

A Lesson in Shopping Savvy

IMG_4786

Look at this dress. Now, take 10 seconds and think of where I might have bought it. If Free People comes to mind, you aren’t completely wrong. The slip under the dress is from Free People, so good job! 😉 If you are like me and love Free People but can’t bear the thought of forking over $100+ dollars for a dress, you are not alone. Every time I walk into Free People, I cry a little bit. I want everything, but 95% of the time I am not willing to pay their ridiculous prices. However, I have found that you can find clothes with that same boho-chic vibe on Ebay that look like the real thing, but for a quarter of the price. I know, brilliant right? This particular dress is pretty much exactly like its Free People counterpart. Don’t believe me? Check it out here. I’m here to tell you that you can have this dress for $20 or less. This has been your amazing shopping tip of the day. You’re welcome.
