This morning in Memphis, we experienced our first official freezing morning of the season. Frost on the windows? Yep.
Well, with cold weather means its time to start ciphering out your spring and summer clothes altogether. However, there is this oh so lovely thing called layering that defers that action. Layering is going to be my friend for a minute, because I am no where near ready to say “See you next heatwave” to my collection of tees. Plus, I’m not ready to stop adding to that collection, because I would love to have this Monrow Leopard Vinyl tees under a black cropped blazer tommorrow!
The vinyl is only on the front of this oversize burnout tee. So, don’t get too nervous about it being “too much”, because its not.
Sequins should definitely be the official embellishment of winter! Sequins are a staple for any winter holiday wardrobe, because they just dazzle any LBD for a holiday party or polish, shine, and pull together a tee and jeans combo.
Well, this season, I am all about the sequin blazer. It has the shape of chic, but the glitz of glam. You can get in boxy, fitted, long, or cropped. Whatever style that tickles your fancy, you should add one to your winter wardrobe. Below are a couple of options to spark some interest for you!

As I sit her at my desk, I’m wearing my go-to Spanx and my loose fit jeans and my waist is still giving the button on my jeans a hard time. Typical day-after Thanksgiving bulge from all the good eating starts giving your pants/skirt’ button a run for their money and your patience.
Well, this product’s information has been sitting in my inbox for more than a minute and right now I am really regretting not ordering one…last week! Oh, how I need this Adjust-A-Button right now and for the rest of the holiday season. Adjust-A-Button allows you to extend or tighten your waistband in seconds. Do you tend to fluctuate in weight, especially around the holiday season? *raises hand* Well, this is perfect for you!
I think I need to go order a couple…ASAP!
Last week, reality star Kim Kardashian attended ebay’s holiday store in NYC wearing a gorgeous one shoulder dress by Alexander Wang. When I first saw her in that dress, I was really floored at how beautiful it was.
Don’t you hate when you see something that you want hardcore, but then the rational side of you interrupts you dream and goal of buying it and instead gives you one big and good question of “Why do you need this?”
Well, my rational side interrupted me when I laid my eyes on this Ultraviolet satchel by L.A.M.B. in Absinthe. As you can see above, absinthe is a bright green that almost looks like the color of some chemical being brood on a burner in a lab, hence the name of absinthe.
Although the bag also comes in the bland neutrals of black and grey, but the absinthe is drawing me into the light that shoots from it. My rational side is right and I don’t need it, but I do want it!
