An evening affair

Every year my husband’s company puts on the most amazing Christmas/Holiday party.  It’s not just the glamour and fun that takes it to #1. What’s really compelling is the company culture. They always speak about the people who are touched by their hard work, and really that’s what’s important.  More than once tears rolled down my cheeks from inspiring stories and kind words. I’m so grateful to have been part of the evening. Knowing it would be a big affair, I chased after the perfect ensemble. Unfortunately, the pictures are a bit blurry, it was dark and we were eager to start partying.

Show A Little Sparkle

As the end of the year hits me like a tornado I am falling out of blogging routine. Forget keeping up with the Kardashians, I can barely keep up with my own life.  In an effort to catch up here is my favorite sparkly item of clothing for the holidays.  So versatile you could literally wear it from lunch with jeans, to a cocktail party, to a cover up in the bedroom… if you so desire.  I love it because it doesn’t require a lot of thought or planning. Bam, suddenly you look super chic.

3 Sides of Style

I recently had the privilege of working with Valerie Andrus, an extremely talented make-up artist. She approached me with idea of gradually transforming me through three completely different looks. Since she’s the expert and, well, the truth is I’ll jump at the opportunity to be made up, I was beyond excited for her to work her magic.

Classy Brit

I don’t need to say much here, the skirt speaks volumes on its own.  Plaid plays a part in every fashion era, it just shows up in different forms.  We are amidst plaid shirt domination for women and men, which I don’t hate, but what I love more is a full flirty plaid skirt flowing around my legs.  If someone could hand me my Burberry trench and point me in the direction of Harrod’s that would be cheeky.

Knits and Suede

Now that we have established it’s fall with pumpkin spice flavored everything, I’m feeling stoked over soft textiles and soothing colors. It has been hot waaay too long over on the West side of the USA, and I will jump at any opportunity to wear one more layer than my birthday suit without melting.

Seriously though, here’s a few of my picks for the fall; ones that you will wear over and over, ones that give the “I’m stylish and don’t try” look.  I wrapped them all into one outfit like a neatly made package and my best friend, who’s an interior designer (Kay & Elle Decor will be launching soon so keep an eye out), took pics of me in her beautiful home.
