Dresses to Ring in the New Year

The festive spirit of the holiday season makes December my favorite month of the year. I love all the extra decorations and sparkle, music, and scents of the season like cinnamon, gingerbread and, of course, live Christmas trees. Most of all, I love that it's a season of seemingly never ending opportunities/excuses to celebrate and get dressed up. So with New Year's Eve just a week away, these are my party dress picks.

Love all of these dresses, because they are embellished or detailed without being fussy, and they have strong yet elegant silhouettes that cover you up enough to be comfortable to party the night away.



Happy Holidays and Happy Christmas Eve!

Obsession of the Week - Valentino Rockstud Camo Clutch in Blue


Love the Valentino Rockstud Camouflage Clutch in Marine (Blue). With studs, a camouflage print, a classic clutch style and a color that is both neutral and on-trend, it is edgy and sophisticated. Also love that the specific metallic shade of the studs would look great with both gold and silver tones. Obsessed!

These images do not do this Valentino Clutch justice. See it in person! I think you'll fall in love as well...


Happy Friday!!

H&M for H&M


I really wanted the title for this post to be Isabel Marant for H&M where I would share the great items I acquired during the debut of the Isabel Marant for H&M collection a few of weeks ago in November. What I didn't anticipate, at the time of the debut, was that the entire collection would be completely sold out (well, almost) within hours after they were officially put on sale. In stores and online.  


I had a cold the day the collection went on sale so I, very naively, thought I would just go online and scoop up my favorite pieces(see above). Easy peasy...not!  Aside from being in a queue just to get onto the Hm.com site, every item I wanted and dropped into my online basket somehow disappeared by the time I got through checkout. I was too slow. Frantic, I started to add whatever was available, but in the end yielded to common sense and removed all my 2nd choice or "not really my size" items.  The upside is that all the extra time I spent on the site led me to the 2 items shown in the top pic and below.

Love this oversize sweatshirt($39.95) with its edgy side zipper detail.  But what I'm most excited about are these faux leather pants! I've been looking for real leather pants for a really long time, but at their high price point, was never able to find ones that seemed, for me, worth the investment. These faux leather pants, on the other hand, are actually quite flattering, easy to clean, and only $34.95! I have to admit, the button does look a little cheap, but cover it up/replace it and you basically have leather pants for $34.95. Crazy.  :)
