I can't believe that we're in the last month of the year and yet I'm still thinking about what I should get friends and family while I'm out and about or looking at the Holiday Gift Guide! But today is a huge day as we're apart of Holiday Blog-a-Day. Not only are we presenting great items that are perfect for the holiday season, but I'm showing you how they can be worn and of course, we're going to give a bag away as well! So it's a good day for everyone involved! Below are three of my favorite looks that work well with my top 3 choices in bags.
This is for all those that are looking to go to a classic party after work or during the weekend. I'm a huge fan of a cute black little number and then popping in color wherever I can. The Christina dress by Coco Bourgeoisie is not only the perfect black dress but has the pop of golden color that's perfect for any evening on the town! This is the essential dress that combines the ladies who lunch with the woman whose eye is the focus of the party. The Swarovski Crystal Amethyst earrings add a little whimsy with the entire outfit. But I love that the Op Art Layered Darcy Clutch by Coach has the cute fringe and brings such a sweet look to a dramatic outfit that has sheerful playfulness to it. This is something that will turn heads and with a pair of amazing heels, you're a photo op waiting to happen!
I may go to a lot of functions but when I'm not, I'm all about staying chic and being warm when I'm working in Starbucks, going to Editors meetings and more. I kid you not if black and grey were taken out of my color scheme I wouldn't know what to wear. Although I could go completely grey, how about adding pops of unexpected color like blue! The Audrey Grey Tote is such a cute little bag and I love the strap with all of the hardware with the fab antiqued effect. It's a fun bag to pair with leggings, a cozy sweater and a pair of over the knee boots! But you know that I can't stop there simple doesn't mean that you can't have a fun look! First off this sweater begs for something on the wrists and this hand crocheted beaded bracelet is the perfect compliment! Same Sky has gorgeous beaded pieces that come in various shades and not only make you look fab from day to night but it works to support the women in African villages by allowing them to work and to make money to feed their families - it's social good at its best. You know I love keeping it natural and when it comes to my favorite stone, make mine agate! These raw Blue Agate pendants by Cynthia Rybakoff are so edgy with pops of charm that they are the perfect way to top off your look no matter where you're going or heading to. Nepali By TDM Designs scarves a nice item to wrap up in or to tie around the arms of your bag as you're running in and out. Once again, your supporting women weavers of the country and also supporting their craftsmanship! Simple, classic and yet you look like you came off a magazine.
Now this spread is an ode to my go to looks! You must have an awesome bag that works well with you, can carry all of your necessities and references your mood. The Sabrina Satchel in yellow will come in handy when all we see is grey and white outside - you'll definitely stand out! In addition, you must have a pair of boots and I am a fan of anthing over the knee - this pair from Tory Burch is AMAZING. Of course you have to have a bracelet - for me make it chunky and the ring is an absolute essential - be the conversation piece in order to generate conversation!
