New Year - Sparkles and Stripes

Let's bring in 2014 looking our best! Sexy sequins are so fun for dancing and parties, while stripes are reliably adorable just about anywhere. Shine your way into 2014 whatever you end up doing tomorrow night!
Inspiration Piece #1 - Casual but cute

All you probably need to buy here is a sequined skirt! Grab a long necklace, a cozy long-sleeve or sweater, high heels, and paint the town!

December Dresses

Chiffon Dress by ASOS

Hello, December!  

Can you believe it? Winter is in the air, and holiday tunes are jingling in our local stores already. If you're like me, holiday planning is already in the works, and that means shopping for gifts and maybe a holiday dress or two. We deserve to treat ourselves, after all! 

It's still early with much time left to pick out the perfect holiday dress for any type of family, friend, or work gathering.

 + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +

These 2 dresses were inspiration for fitting both a casual Christmas gathering with some friends and a fancier Holiday party dream outing. Red and green were obvious colors to look at, but of course there are neutrals and other sparkly styles that work great for holiday dress-up!

This red number above is semi-formal and is equipped with an elastic waist band (and optional belt), allowing you slightly more room to snack on those Moonstruck chocolates and peppermint schnaps without having to worry so much!

Green Sequins by ASOS
For the super fancy work party or some dream-celebrity bash you can sneak into, this second dress does any holiday party some sexy justice. The low-dip in the back shows off some skin, but not too much as the dress is generous in length. 

Who doesn't like to dress up in sparkling sequins and dazzle into the holidays like this? --------> 

Both of these gems are ASOS dresses, and were found on

Happy [fashion] holidays!

Black on Black

Lana (photo cred -

w/Lana Del Rey

Wow - Lana looks beyond spectacular here in a loose blazer (and loose curls) with a sexy LBD. In fact, I think it may be my favorite picture of her ever. She lights up the dark room with that smile and brings so much class to her usual hipster-sass. She brings an essential wow factor by simply wearing black and having a long flow of dark hair to pair.

The American singer-songwriter has been wildly popular the past few years, but not only for music. She is a fashion icon and always surprises us with her mixing and matching of sporty-hipster and floral flares.

Featured on the front of hot magazines such as NYLON (, she is inspiring to all.


More Black on Black Inspiration -->

This all-black outfit truly covers so many fashion styles all at once. Leather-y pants paired with a peplum top and zipper can become a work-outfit or a casual night out for drinks, all-in-one.

This Black on Black = Edge & Class.

Costume Challenge


Mary Poppins via Lauren Conrad 

We all know Lauren has adorable style and has proved herself fashion-worthy (long after The Hills ended). We knew she wasn't just messing around, she had some skills.

Speaking of skills, take a look at her adorable take on a timeless classic - the Mary Poppins costume.

This simple DIY is complete with just a handful of easy-to-find items: a black hat, red bow tie, white button-up, a black skirt and tights. Let's not forget a signature umbrella to complete the ensemble!

From fitness & cooking to fashion & crafts, her website shows off all of her talents; including her very own colorful fashion line at Kohls. She's an IT girl, no doubt.

Shop Lauren's boutique for cute graphic sweaters and such this season, and happy costuming!

Ever seen the hit ABC drama "Revenge"? If so, you've seen a gorgeous girl alongside the main characters, speaking in her adorable british accent and always stylin' it up in her assistant role. 

I'm so happy to know she is a real-life fashionista, and this girl is no assistant - she's a style boss. 

Check out Ashley Madekwe's style blog, Ring My Bell.

Emmy has Edge

NYC Fashion Show

Emmy Rossum shines in this gorgeous all-black (almost) pairing of pants and lacey top! Leather and faux-leather have been popping up a lot these days, and I'm happy to see more people stepping up to the 'dangerous' side.

A perfect match of edge and class, she keeps it simple with colors and patterns, but powerful in her style statements.

For a fashionista celeb, I say she passes

Staz in Style


..and bouffant hair!

Meet Model Staz Lindes, posing here in a vintage throw-back coat and retro up-do. 

I love everything about this photo - the vintage 60's look, the warm reds, and especially that hairstyle!

I was so inspired, I found some easy steps on how to get my hair somewhere close to this sexy bouffant hair-do:

Mellow Yellow

For all seasons

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

I know, I know... Fall is here (or near) but this yellow 3-quarter sleeve is winning, always.

It's easy and fun to dress up in layers and pop the jewelery and accessories when you have a bold, simple color to work with.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Time to move in those soft, Fall yellows and take out the neons from summer, am I right?

I wish I had her killer legs, but hey, some tights would do the trick in my case!
