The Calm Before the Turkey

Thanksgiving is tomorrow! A day full of family, friends..and food of course! For those of you in America…you know the drill. Dress your best, show up at your aunt’s house, and eat. And then eat some more, and then some more. Don’t forget the pie.

So we all site down at a beautiful table and enjoy eachother’s company.

Holiday Mixer

THis season, I have seen lots of mixing. Whether it be mixing of patterns, textures, colors, it’s everywhere…and it’s something you should give a shot. Although you may think mixing patterns could end up looking like a thrift shop outfit gone wrong, there are ways to incorporate this interest into your outfit, without going overboard. The same goes for texture!

Let’s take a look shall we?

The first and holiday appropriate look I found on Anthropologie.

Glinted Sunset Shift-Glinted Sunset Shift

Why this works for me:

The bold colors in the dress balance out the lighter shades in the jacket. The brocade of the jacket goes nicely with the sequined shine of the dress. Both pieces are pretty bold, but the colors off set each other, and make it all flow perfectly.

Look Number 2: LookBook.nu

Vintage Tapestry Floral Jacket, Vintage Ruffled Silk Blouse, Herringbone Skirt

Why this works:

This look is a little bit more tame than the first. We have a floral blazer with a small patterned skirt. The colors of the blazer help brighten and soften the pattern on the skirt. A fun contrast! Love it!

Another Look From Anthropologie

Why this works:

I love the mixture of different sizes of dots in this ensemble. The inverted colors pop and are oh so fun! Then you add the embellished sparkly skirt, and you are all set for the holidays. Such a fun quirky look!

Have a great Monday!

No-Shop November

This whole no-shave November gimmick has got me thinking about a challenge of my own. For this month, I am not going to purchase anything clothing or accessory related. Necessities only. I spend way too much money on things I think I need, and am seeing my bank account suffer.

So this lovely month of November I will window shop! I will post things I am drooling over, and who knows, maybe by the end of the month I will know what I can afford and actually make a well thought out shopping choice!

Join me in window shopping!

First up: This amazing twill coat!  Twill Trench Coat from Riordan Roache- $179.99

Resist the Urge to shop!

Bows Bows Bows

After a little visit to the Ted Baker shop in Scottsdale, I have refound my love for bows. My former roommate and friend, Kelsey and I had a love for bows ( and still do). We loved finding corny bows to wear around the holidays. Take us back to our childhood and all that. while at the Ted Baker shop, I saw a few pieces featuring some great bows, and thought I would devote a post to just that. Bows bows, and more bows.

First off, we have the awesomeness that is this sweater from Madewell.

And I love this Bandeau from Amourouse-$75.00

This headpiece from Mignonne Handmade is also one of my favorites! -$50.00

I love the color of these shoes from Ted Baker- $170

And if you ever have a chance to stop in a Ted Baker store… check out their Great Gatsby Inspired looks! So amazing!

And finally, I love the retro look of this hair bow from Oh Honey Hush- $14

That’s all for now! Have a beautiful night!

I am personally always looking for deals. ¬†Tonight’s post is focused on outfits and looks for affordable prices! I made a few different looks, under a few different price ranges. ¬†Being stylish and fashionable, does not mean you have to go into debt! The best part is, that all of these pieces are great for mixing and matching. These could all be staples in your wardrobe.

Under $70
Under $150

Oh Emmy Darling

OK I may be a bit behind on this, but I blame my insane schedule and sickness this last week. So here are some of my favorites from the Emmy Awards Red Carpet. ūüôā ¬†I loved the retro Hollywood glamour that so many of the looks evoked.

I Loved Ginnifer Goodwin’s vibrant¬†Monique Lhuillier¬†gown. Such a different take on line and texture, with such a simplistic silhouette. The perfect combo! Love!

Emily VanCamp rocked this grey pleated J. Mendel gown…simply stunning! ¬†the intricate details make this absoutely gorgeous.

Of course, just about every time I see Tina Fey, I love her gowns she sports on the runway. I love her in this burgundy Vivienne Westwood gown. The beautiful gold embroidery adds the perfect touch of shine to this gorgeous gown.

And last but by no means the least, we have Leslie Mann in my favorite look of the night. ¬†This retro inspired Naeem Kahn gown just pops. I love love love the lacy looking bodice and the bright mango colored skit together. Such a perfect look. And not to mention the pockets and the high bun…. any dress that has pockets is way beyond perfect. And well….I love high buns ūüôā

Good night all!
