"Gimme, Gimme!" Holiday Wish List

We all have one. You know, that secret list you would give the real Santa if you could. It is the list that is not at all made up of the practical things you asked for, or peace on earth or good will towards men.

I mean the wish list with the REALLY cool stuff on it that makes your heart skip a beat. Those things that you love just because they are beautiful and the mere thought of rocking them makes you feel that much more marvelous. 

Fabulous extended-calf Frye Jane boots to pair with a great Nic +Zoe cardigan? Yes, please! Natori pajamas in a luxurious, soft and silky fabric for a night in with a good glass of wine and a great book? Check! A cozy, fabulous, and soft Pendleton wool dress to pair with a fabulous Coach bag? Oh, Santa! Cat-eye Maui Jim glasses for looking Hollywood fabulous while rocking a Michael Kors lambskin moto jacket? Be still my heart! Close out the wish list with a luxurious and cozy Michael Kors faux fur vest paired with a BB Dakota sequined skirt and you are ready to show the world a little bit of your inner diva.

I hope Santa, Krampus and all the Magi bring you everything you want this holiday season, beyond peace on earth and good will towards men. I look forward to sharing more with you in the coming New Year!

The Style Edit: One Denim Jacket, Three Ways

There’s no all-American staple quite like the classic denim jacket. Its iconic relaxed style is more versatile than ever before, thanks to its recent resurgence. There are plenty of fresh, modern versions of this beloved classic out there to incorporate into your wardrobe right now!

Seize the opportunity to get creative with your denim jacket with these three stylish layered looks:

Denim jacket with fur vest, skinny jeans and boots

A faux fur vest adds some serious glamour to the denim jacket. Instantly perk up the look with a statement necklace and opt for a knee-high lace-up boot with a stacked heel.

Denim jacket with a plaid shirt and leather jacket

Give the denim jacket an edgy twist with the simple addition of a moto jacket layered over an oversized plaid shirt. A pair of faux leather leggings turns up the edge factor even more!

Denim jacket draped over a tuxedo blazer and turtleneck for a refined update!

This tailored take on the denim jacket is perfect for a night out or the office. By taking refined separates like a black blazer and adding in a casual spin, you're getting a whole new way to rock a timeless classic!

Wonderful Tonight: 8 Looks to Rock Your Holiday Parties

Can you believe that 2014 is almost over?  Last year at this point, like many people, I was yearning for the end of 2013. I do not know anyone who had a good year in 2013, and we were all looking forward to 2014 with hope and a sense of “Whew! I survived!” In contrast, 2014 has been a year of new loves, new books, new jobs, new family members, and a multitude of other reasons to celbrate for almost everyone I know.

What were your goals this year? Did you keep any of your resolutions? I am proud to say that I did. I ran my first 5K, spent as much time outside with my kids as I did inside, and actually put money into my savings account- which is a LOT harder than it seems when you work around fabulous clothing and shoes all the time!

The end of the year is a time of introspection and celebration with friends and family. We spend time with family, coworkers and friends, old and new, reflecting on our accomplishments and setting the bar for  next year’s achievements. As we celebrate, we want our outside to show just how we feel on the inside- powerful, strong, prepared and fabulous.  

With that in mind, this week I am excited to bring you looks to make you feel "wonderful tonight", ready to rock your curves while celebrating you and all that you have accomplished this year. All these fabulous party looks need is one or two glam accessories, a cute bag, and of course, GREAT SHOES (trust me; I know an awesome place to find them!) to complete the look and have you ready to celebrate.
