Gifts for Her

While getting ready for Thanksgiving and the Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sales (check back soon for sale info!), I've been putting together this Gift Guide 'For Her' for this holiday season. There are so many great choices, but here are my fave picks right now from retailers I love and shop with often like Nordstrom, Net-A-Porter, Shopbop, etc. In the next couple weeks I'll be adding more gift guides such as 'For Him', 'The Beauty Junkie', 'The Fitness Obsessed', 'For Kids', etc. If there's any category in particular that you'd like to see, let me know!

See below for my picks that are all less than $100!

From top L to R: 1. Lanvin grosgrain-trimmed notebook, 2. 'muse' candle, 3. rose-gold watch, 4. cooling eye mask, 5. Sherpa robe, 6. 2016 agenda, 7. glitter iphone case (recently bought this and love it!), 8. leather tech gloves, 9. Gorjana 'shimmer' necklace

Holiday Outfit Inspiration - Night on the Town

Collage of faux fur jacket, lobe earrings, comme des garcons leggings, sophia webster lola pumps, slip dress, salvatore ferragamo clutch
Happy Friday, Everyone! Have any fun plans this weekend? With the holidays coming up, I've been thinking of different outfit ideas that would be great for a chic holiday event as well as an unplanned night on the town for drinks or dinner at that cool new restaurant. Essentially, the ultimate holiday look for the city girl.

Above is one urban chic look that inspires me now. Found the pieces above from Farfetch.  Have you heard of it? It's an online shopping site where fashion-forward pieces are specifically curated from over 300 diverse boutiques from around the world. Your order is sent directly from the boutique and the best part is that you may have the option to pick up/return at a participating Farfetch boutique if there is one convenient to your location.

Now back to my outfit inspiration... Love how the edgy look of the lobe earrings and varnished leggings contrast and complement a feminine and delicate slip dress and purse. Top it off with a bold, pop-of-color faux fur jacket and whimsical detail on classic Sophia Wester pumps, and you have a look that is edgy-chic, festive and versatile.

Have a great weekend!

My Favorite Skinny Jeans...

Blue and Black FRAME denim skinny jeans, Garance Dore book, Frends Headset
Flares may be the new(returning) trend in denim, but not for me, at least not yet. I much prefer my skinny jeans (and boyfriend jeans, but that's another post...). Skinnies are much more flattering, you can wear them with any heel height (no more hem dragging on the ground!), they can pull off the dressed-up look a bit more effortlessly, and with improved fabric technology, they're comfortable as well! 

I have tried and loved many skinny style jeans, but I recently found ones from FRAME denim which are my all time favorite. The rise is not too high or too low (regardless of how it's described on a particular site), they slenderize and lift where you need them :), and they have just the right amount of stretch where they're comfortable without sliding down, you know what I mean...

Shop these skinnies and some other faves here...
