STYLING: WINTER WEATHER

Depending on where you live the winter weather will continue for a while longer, and unfortunately some of you may experience an over abundance of snow. If you want to enjoy the chilly temperature while keeping warm a faux fur coat can do the job. I have always been an advocate against the use of real animal fur, and will never agree with its use. Stella McCartney, who never fails to impress me, took the initiative a while back to introduce her ‘Fur-free-Fur’ creations, which offer an array faux fur coats. Hopefully this effort with help push other designers to join the faux fur bandwagon. WINTER BLIZZARD

Best Fragrances For The Holiday Season

Still having trouble deciding what to get your mom? A co-worker? Or that special someone? Well look no further. While some think that giving a fragrance gift set is too cliché or unoriginal, it is most certainly not! It will most likely be one of the most useful gifts because:

  1. They will want to smell good so they will use the perfume you gifted them with. (Given that it is not Secretions Magnifiques.)
  2. You will be saving them how much ever you spent.

So here is a list I have compiled of the best fragrances that you can splurge on this season that will make an excellent gift. Keep in mind that there is absolutely no shame in picking one up for yourself too.

BEST DRESSED AT THE 2015 EMMY AWARDS

Take a look at tonight’s best dressed celebrities who paraded down the red carpet at the 2015 Emmy Awards.

Must Have Rompers & Jumpsuits

Having a romper or jumpsuit is an essential component of every womens’ closet. These versatile pieces can be worn in really any setting and are perfect if you’re on the go. It’s a top and bottom in one and that is why they’re always my favorite for vacations. You can wear them for a simple trip to the grocery store or dress it up for a formal gathering. If you don’t know the difference between a romper and jumpsuit and just use the words interchangeably don’t worry. Rompers leg length are above the knee while jumpsuits’ go below the knee. Check out my favorites below that are perfect for any budget.

Today we’ll be styling the Thebes Knee-High Gladiator Sandals by Ancient Greek Sandals.
