Sparkly Assets.

What is it about sparkly things that just make women fall in love, I LOVE sparkly things, jewelry, accessories, tops you name it. I took a fashion risk with this skirt, I scoured Pinterest and obsessed over sequin skirts until I landed on one that I thought I could make work for me. If you follow me at all you know that I am a pretty strict dark bottoms girl, I don’t really ever reach for anything that is going to highlight my “Assets.” So I  landed on this little skirt, and big shocker its from Nordstrom(you know my favorite place). But when I got it, it was painfully long and matronly(if thats possible for a sequin skirt). So I had it hemmed by my wonderful Aunt and costume maker extraordinaire. She took off enough skirt to make me an infinity scarf. HA.

Now if you are thinking about putting this outfit together for yourself. Which I highly encourage, so cute. Here are a couple of tips. which I learned through trial and error, and discouraging looks from my husband.

  1. Make sure your skirt is a flattering length FOR YOU. Not everyone wants to rock a mini skirt, and when you are talking about having a sparkly ass, the length and fit HAS GOT TO BE RIGHT.
  2. Whatever flannel you choose, it has to be on the fitted side. I tried on two other flannels and both were out because they were too baggy. My shape was lost, and the whole look seemed unbalanced.
  3. Wear jewelry that you love and are comfortable with. You definitely need something, but it doesn’t need to be over the top. I like big jewelry so I went with a statement necklace AND statement earrings. If thats not your thing, no worries.

Its Christmas Eve, if you are preparing for a family get together over the next 3 days(I know I am) and you don’t have a sequin skirt. Don’t sweat it, try something that you might deem a fashion risk. Rock those skinny jeans you have in the back of the closet, grab that blouse that you think might be a little over the top.

Happy Holidays!

Windy Winter Days

I stumbled across this dress while shopping Nordstrom online a month ago and I fell in love with the coloring and the high low style. I grabbed it up on sale, and was surprised how thin the fabric was. Still flattering and  fall/winter(ish) the search began for some accessories to take this dress into winter.

Faux fur, Sorel boots, and some winter tights took this dress directly into winter. How do you transition your favorite dresses from fall to winter?

Happy Holidays!

Swinging Into the Holidays Pt. 2

So l fell in love with this dress from Curves Avenue, and I decided to style it twice. I KNOW what you are thinking, fashion bloggers don’t style dresses twice. But here is the thing, I am a real girl and real girls wear things over and over again. So Swing dress round two AND GO!

My last post featured this dress in a very diva glam way. I wore a faux fur vest, some statement sunnies, and leather gloves. In this post I am featuring the same swing dress, necklace, and boots. With different accessories this look has more of a polished feel to it.

Also, this Cape Jacket is AMAZING! So fun, and comfortable. Just throw it on and you are instantly chic. I linked some other cape options below. They are all the rage for Winter.

I can’t decide which I like better! Which one do you like? Diva Glam or Polished Holiday.

Swinging Into The Holidays Pt. 1

What are you wearing to your next Holiday gathering? I hate buying a dress and only wearing it once and then never again. So I am always searching for dresses that I can wear over and over again, dresses that can easily be fixed up for a night out or dressed down with some riding boots and a cardigan.

This dress from Curves Avenue is perfect for the Holidays(or anytime really). You can dress it up with some booties and faux fur or throw on some riding boots and a cardigan for Holiday shopping or work.

Glam Cabin with Dentz Denim

YASSSSS! Its Christmas time, and I FINALLY have all my decorations up. With the help of my fabulous family I did a major overhaul on my Christmas decor. I wanted to change my Christmas decor theme from “Inherited from my Mother” to “Glam Cabin.” Now, this new theme includes, plaid, glitter, and fur. Basically my 3 favorite things, to wear and decorate with! Of course I pinned 1000 things on Pinterest and carefully curated a vision for my Christmas decor. But what really is the point of all the home decor if you aren’t going to have something fabulous to wear with it on Christmas morning?

What are you wearing on Christmas morning? Have you thought about it? Well, if you haven’t then think about a cute slouchy sweatshirt and some leggings. Every year, I wish and wish I had some cute and cozy little outfit to wear on Christmas morning, and every year I am a loser and I end up in some lame ass PJ’s that aren’t cute and don’t look festive AT ALL. Well this year, is going to be different because I have a slouchy Christmas sweatshirt from Dentz Denim. I am not going to be lame, I am going to be freaking adorable.

This cute little top would also be complete perfection with skinnies and some boots to go holiday shopping, or to pick that perfect Christmas tree. Do you have an ugly sweater party coming up? This slouchy sweatshirt would be perfect for that, maybe with some Ponte pants, and some booties. Just enough sass, and so comfortable. Rock it girl!

Some of my other favorites from Dentz Denim

  1. Merry Christmas Ya Filthy Animal
  2. Happy Holla Days
  3. Wifey
  4. Merry Crustmas
