New Year, New Accessories!

It seems like every year goes by quicker than the last. Suddenly we find ourselves with Christmas just about a week away, and then New Year's just a few days after that. Hopefully you've been making plans to visit family, friends, or maybe you're just getting ready for some time to relax.  It's been quite the year, and it's definitely time to celebrate! And if you've been as busy getting ready for the holidays as we have, you might find yourself scrambling to put together the right outfits for Christmas and New Year's Eve.

For Christmas, if you're going out to dinner or a party, you definitely want to look your best. It's also important to be comfortable, since there's no doubt you'll be tempted by Christmas treats and drinks while you celebrate. Wearing Christmas colors will certainly get you in the spirits - red, green, silver, gold, and even navy are great Christmas colors. A high neckline is the way to go for this holiday, with a statement necklace or earrings. If its a white Christmas, don't forget to wear tights to stay warm, and comfortable heels or booties. Complete the look with a touch of sparkle - whether it's with glittery makeup, hair accessories, or a bag.

For New Year's Eve, it's time to bring on the champagne! Bring in the new year in a party getup that will turn heads. This year it's all about metallic colors - rock a silver or gold jumpsuit. Pair the jumpsuit with a cropped, velvet jacket and matching pumps. Of course, you don't want to carry around a big bag all night, so bring a classic evening clutch, just big enough to carry around your lipstick (pick a daring color like purple or navy) and your look is complete.

Happy New Year!

Baby, It's Cold Outside

Winter weather has officially arrived, and it's getting colder and colder out there every day. It's the time of year when most people would rather be at home wrapped in a blanket than out and about in the cold. But Christmas is just around the corner, and there's no doubt you'll be dressing up and going out for all the festivities. We want to remind you that there are ways to stay warm while still looking your best!

It can be difficult accessorizing cold-weather dresses and coats, but there are so many ways to stay comfortable and stylish without freezing! Any touch of fur is perfect this time of year for adding flair to your outfit while also adding warmth. If your coat isn't already lined with fur, a fur scarf around your neck will go perfectly with a long, classic pea coat. Put on some warm, fleece lined leather gloves with unique details, such as the Gucci bow-embellished gloves pictured below. A warm knit hat with a large pom pom on top is trending big this year, but if you're worried about hat hair, big fur ear muffs will keep you warm and stylish outdoors. If snow isn't on the ground, add a pop of color with sensible velvet heels. As for jewelry, a statement necklace is a must during the holiday season. This will complete your look, especially when wearing a dress with a high neckline. Last but not least, no one wants to be lugging around a huge bag in the cold, so a simple, over-sized clutch is the perfect accessory to carry your personal belongings when going out at night.
