A Suitcase Clutch.

Three things stand out to me about this particular outfit. One, the bag. Mark Cross has successfully designed miniature suitcases as a beautiful accessory for years now. Recently, the brand relaunched and did they ever nail it! A little colored box with a suitcase latch? Sign me up! If you aren’t familiar with the line, please scroll through here (you will find one you love). Next, the army boots. Saint Laurent comes out with a pair of military boots each season. I have had a long time crush on the style. This is a staple piece for any wardrobe. Third, a cropped faux fur. ASOS has several great options here. You can find a great faux fur for a decent price (I mean, who doesn’t love a good deal). Throw on your favorite jeans, a turtle neck and some amazing sunnies (like the Dior shades pictured below), and you’re ready to take on any day.

The Skinny Tie.

One of my favorite ways to accessorize a look this season is with a skinny tie. Yes, you read that correctly, a tie. For a woman, the skinny tie is much longer and can be worn multiple ways. I love pairing one with a sheer button up and wrapping it around my neck then doing a loose knot near the bottom. I am also into wearing shorts this winter. A fun way to do so is by pairing them with sheer tights. Add your favorite pair of black booties or over-the-knee boots and you are ready to go. How could I almost forget to mention my favorite mirrored shades? I love the touch of rose gold detail to the glasses. A must have this season. As you know, black is my go-to and I love an outfit that is versatile. Overall, this look is perfect for a day or night outing. So if you haven’t already, give the skinny tie a try!

Happy New Year! xx _I2A1072_I2A1079 _I2A1069_I2A1097 _I2A11077 _I2A1107 _I2A1101_I2A110777booties: Saint Laurent, bag: Saint Laurent, blazer: herehere, glasses: Dior, tie: here, belt: here & here, shorts: here & here, top: herehere, tights: here, lips: Stila 

That NYE dress.

Can you believe it’s almost time for a new year? Yes, another one has flown by. To think this was the year I finally moved to LA is crazy. A wonderful era is coming to an end, and what better way to celebrate than in an amazing dress. I am excited to introduce ASOS party dress collection just in time for New Year’s Eve. You are going to love the selection, I mean really swoon over it. Not only are there dress options for any New Year’s party, they are affordable! I love a great cocktail dress with an even better price tag. Okay, are you ready to find the perfect outfit to ring in the new year? Check out this one and more here.
