Styling A Sleeved Jumpsuit

With Christmas right around the corner you might be wondering just what you’ll be wearing to that holiday party you were invited to? Well why not consider wearing a jumpsuit. I personally love wearing jumpsuit because you can dress it up for a formal event or leave it be for a more casual look. Here is an idea of an outfit I came up with that would look absolutely gorgeous while worn on a special occasion.Formal Jumpsuits

Some of the the French fashion house vintage items are up for grabs on the website. What better time than now during the holiday season where you can use this time as an excuse to splurge on some of these ultra-chic items. Here are some of my favorites.

Fashion’s New It Girl Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner. You may either adore her or shriek every time you hear about her or any of her sisters. Well this California girl is taking the fashion world by storm. Jenner has already walked for some of the most prestigious names in fashion like Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, and Givenchy to name a few. And has graced in the pages of American Vogue and Vogue Paris. Now this 19 year old tv personality turned model is the new face of the beauty giant Estee Lauder. Many have mixed feelings about her signing with Estee Lauder saying she’s to young, they’re using her name, etc. I may not be a big Kendall Jenner fan but I must say this was a smart move by the beauty brand. Just day’s after announcing her role with Estee Lauder’s Instagram rapidly gained 50K followers. This girl will definitely boost Estee Lauder’s sales numbers especially with some of the younger market base that follow Miss.Jenner. Here are some behind the scenes photos some ad shoots for Estee Lauder featuring Kendall Jenner.

This is the second week of their five week Vintage Goldmine series where they will unveil items from an iconic luxury brand last week it was Chanel, this week it’s Moschino, I wonder what brand it will be next week. For now we’ll have to wait. But here are some of this weeks favorites.

Styling Black Leather Pants

When I say leather pants what comes to mind? Perhaps old, not in, ugh. Well I consider The Leather Pant to be a staple item to own. The perfect way to rock a pair is when pairing it with the right clothes, accessories and handbag. So I took the challenge to create this red. white, and black outfit that will make anyone who wears it look killer. Because you know what I say, We dress to turn heads.

The 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

The annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is right around the corner and this year it brings two MAJOR changes. For the first time the show will be held outside of the United States and will take place in London. And you maybe wondering who will bear the coveted Fantasy Bra this year?

This honor will not only go to one angel but two, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio. Both bra/panty sets cost a combined $4 Million. (That’s a bargain compared to lasts years $10 Million Fantasy Bra worn by Candice Swanepoel.) These Brazilian bombshells look better then ever considering that both Lima and Ambrosio have had multiple pregnancies.

Styling A Cocoon Coat

Fall and Winter brings along those chilly days where all you want to do is stay in bed. But unfortunately nothing gets done by itself and one of my favorite throw at the last minute garment is the Cocoon Coat. I love these type of coats because they’re always warm and over sized. I was put to the task to style this gorgeous Giambattista Valli Coat and here’s what I came up with. I was vibing a school girl outfit today so that’s exactly what I created with the H&M blouse and River Island Skirt, which by the way I adore.I love the cut out toe line on the Jimmy Choo’s and the satchel is by far one of my favorite looking satchels in stores.
