Day 6: A Dash of Red (Lips)

My favorite thing to dress up an outfit in the winter is red lips. So for Day 6 of 25 Days of Details, Nar’s Heat Wave is my lip color of choice for December. I splurged and bought it this weekend for a charity event but it was well worth every penny! I think it would be a great stocking stuffer :)

Nice Rock

By now everyone knows I have a major girl crush on Anne Hathaway.  She is whitty, funny and beautiful and now has a sparkling rock on her finger and a man to share in all the fun.  Anne’s long time boyfriend, Adam Shulman proposed before Thanksgiving but were just seen together at the Kennedy Center Honors sporting her new sparkler, which was custom designed by her new fiance.  How cute!

25 Days of Details

This December I decided it was time to start a little tradition on this bloggie.  25 Days of Details will include holiday party inspiration, wish lists from some of my best friends, and lots of little details that goes into making your holiday sparkle.  

 

December 1st: My First Real Christmas Tree in my own place 

December 2nd: My favorite winter pattern to warm up any outfit or room.

Plaid is one of my favorite patterns for the winter months.  Whether it be a throw on the couch, a flannel shirt, or a table cloth during a holiday meal- this pattern is one that will never go out of style.  

Hope you enjoy!

My New Shoes

So this past weekend I finally found these cuties! I have been lusting over them for months and I finally found them in my size when I was in Austin. They are from Zara and you can get them online here! Doesn’t Blair, from Atlantic-Pacific, look so cute in them?

Follow Me Please

“For all the little details in life”

Sometimes I just love a photograph but do not really have much to say about it, so I decided a tumblr was the best place to put all the things I love and inspire me.

Lusting: Glitz and Glam

I am in need of some sparkle in my life and I think this sequined clutch from Zara might do the trick.  It is the perfect size and has the right price tag (which is a major plus for me).  It is the perfect accessory to dress up a casual outfit or for a cocktail party.  Anyways, it is going on my never-ending “must have” list.

Joining the Club

So, I know lots of people have been posting about the “arm party” but I haven’t caught onto the trend yet, maybe it is because I don’t own a lot of bracelets.  However, my friend Caitlin is the queen of stacking perfectly crafted pieces together and making them look great.  She is my inspiration for this post and my new wish list of bracelets.  Some may be in my dreams, like the Cartier Love Bracelet but others like this J.Crew tortoise shell may be in my near future.

Wish I Was There

J.Crew’s edgy sister, Madewell is making a big name for themselves in fashion these days.  Alexa Chung, fashion icon and actress, launched her new collaboration during New York Fashion Week and it has been flying off the shelves ever since. Today, I came across these pics and wished I was in San Fran for the Alexa Chung for Madwell Lanch Party. Maybe someday… but for now I will just pick out everything I want here.

60's Style

Big shades, pearls, and pencil skirts seem to be the trend this fall.  And this fall’s tv line-up is no exception.  From Pan Am to Mad Men to the scandalous Playboy Club, this fall is turning back the clock a few decades and I have to say, I Like It.
