Tartan

DSC_6007_2With the weather being very cold, granted by  San Francisco standards, I’ve been wrapping myself in cozy, chunky knits which are easy to thrown on.  I have almost obliterated color from my daily repertoire, but since Christmas is still around the corner you’ll probably see a few more pops of red before I retire it from my winter rotation.  For now, here’s yet another black and white look which carries an entirely different vibe from the last black and white outfit which was ultra modern.

DSC_6224_2If you aren’t familiar with chloe+isabel jewelry, I’m wearing one of their headbands which I absolutely adore.  It’s got the perfect amount of vintage flair and whimsical touch.  The best part of this headband is you can also wear it as a necklace!  The two finger bar ring I’m wearing below is a little edgy and is super comfortable.  A definite must have!  Actually, all the chloe+isabel jewelry are timeless pieces and very affordable!  I’ll be styling with a few of their statement pieces next week and teaming up with them to do a giveaway so stay tuned!

Festive Feathers

DSC_5375_2This is a blazer….I mean a dress.  Well…,more accurately, a blazer worn as a dress!  I’ve always had an affinity for feather adorned fashion.  It adds that touch of romantic femininity to any look.   Particularly in this instance, the feathers lend that critical femininity to balance this boxy, boyfriend blazer.  Given that Elizabeth and James is usually cut large for my frame and that I sized up, this blazer works perfectly as a dress!  Without stating the obvious, you can recreate this exact look pairing a boyfriend blazer with a feather skirt.  So kick up the glamour in your holiday look this season by flaunting some festive, feathers!

Fur Drama

DSC_4856A little goes a long way…tis the case with fur!  In this case, the long hair fur makes a statement with multiple exclamation marks!!!  The dramatic cascading frames a lapel shaped collar to an otherwise casual cardigan.  The look is visually dramatic and opulent.  It feels luxuriously soft and is incredibly warm.  All the features that make me want to snuggle up to this sweater as the temperatures drop this month.  As I mentioned before, my fashion obsessions during fall and winter shift emphasis to leather and fur.  Thus, a simple pairing with faux leather pants and a pair of show-stopping heels rounds out laid back luxe with an edgy flair!

DSC_4971DSC_4560Fortuitously, I stumbled across this pair of Giorgio Armani fabulousness at Barneys New York outlet.  There were only two pairs left at an obscenely discounted price and one was my size?!  In a situation like this, I’m really only left with one choice!  That’s right, I quickly scooped it up and made room for it in the closet. 😉 Without a doubt, I have a weakness for shoes!

Glittery Glam

DSC_4196Quick!!  Go grab your sunglasses because you are about to look at a whole lot of BLING!  Shimmering, glittery, and metallic sequins bling.  Now that it’s finally December, I want to focus on holiday looks for all those upcoming parties, luncheons, and dinners this month!  And what better to ignite a festive, holiday spark than sequins?!  These pants are from the Isabel Marant pour H&M collection which sold out, unfortunately.  However, you can still recreate this look with other sequin pants such as this gold pair or this black pair for those a little less daring.  The rule is to keep the accessories and the remainder of the look simple and to a minimum.  You will be party-ready in your glittering sequins pants!  It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Reflect

DSC_3359The imminent arrival of the holiday season has me gravitating towards all things glittery and festive such as this metallic skirt.  Because this skirt is so highly reflective I kept the remainder of the look muted and subdued.  Although I don’t typically wear slogan shirts, this Zara top struck a chord in me.  It just happened to be a moment where I needed this reminder.  It’s amazing how powerful words can be because this shirt truly reminds me to reflect and project belief in thyself!

Fluffy Pink

DSC_3236_2This coat had me at hello!  It is the perfect DREAM coat.  The fur is fluffy and soft without being itchy.  The cotton candy pink is the hot color trend this season.  And, it fits snugly without excessive volume.  I love that this is the type of coat which can be thrown on with almost any outfit for an instant GLAM!
