Come on, you know you want to work with me! Thanks, HCB
I hate tights. First of all, with a name like ‘tights,’ how comfortable can they be? Second, they inevitably rip so you have to constantly buy new pairs. And don’t even get me started on how tangled I get every time I have to go to the ladies room. What I’m trying to say is, tights are a worst case scenario for me. Therefore, if I go out for drinks during the cooler months, I tend toward pants so that I can avoid any pantyhose debacles.
Believe it or not, faux leather pants can be surprisingly versatile. I pair them with anything silky and/or sheer with a boyfriend blazer and bold jewelry (like this statement necklace) for a night out. Then for day, I would throw a comfy sweater over this outfit and swap my heels for leopard print loafers. What do you think? Do you wear your leather pants to death or are they still hanging in your closet with the tags on?

I have a soft spot for the Christmas holiday. Thanksgiving has never been my friend, because I don’t like turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, etc. I do enjoy a slice
or two or three of pie though 🙂 … Anyway, I look forward to that time after the Thanksgiving holiday has passed when it becomes “socially acceptable” for me to watch Christmas movies (was totally caught in July by the manfriend watching White Christmas on Netflix), wear holiday-themed socks, listen to holiday music on my iPod, (“er, oops did I not press skip when All I Want for Christmas is You came on? My mistake…”) and break out some festive decorations. So, friends, here is an Insta-preview into my holiday celebrations…
My Holiday spirit started with the lighting of the bow at Cartier, and it continued at the holiday party, where I donned a variety of holiday-themed headwear, like this number above…
Then, my fabulous Mother and I went to see the Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall, where I popped my Rockette’s cherry.
And to round out my holiday-cheer update, the trees have arrived!! From the decorated trees rooted in the sidewalk and the fresh pine smell of the Christmas trees for sale, to my little Charlie Brown Christmas tree at home… I’m enamored. Get yourself some spirit, people! Because I have just begun…
I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday/Weekend with your friends and family!

What are you planning to wear? Tell me in the comments!
Well I can’t Instagram a photo of the back of my eyelids, so I have no images to supplement my weekend recap… I spent most of the weekend cuddled up with the manfriend, watching Homeland (and football). It is unbelievably nice sometimes to wear comfy pajamas (not a blog-worthy look) and just veg out (lay like broccoli) with someone you love. Oh, and to get some sleep! Call me an old lady if you want, but I had a wonderful and relaxing weekend.
And since I don’t have weekend pictures, here is my life lately, via Instagram. Enjoy…
Preparation for facing the Nor’Easter & Beautiful dried roses hanging on my wall
Annual Lighting of the Bow at Cartier 5th Avenue Mansion
New Things: Gorjana Rings and Sandals c/o Steve Madden (both worn in a recent shoot – stay tuned!)
What do you think? How would you style this metallic beauty?
I’m not usually a “party-dress” kind of gal, but this one has me swooning. I love simple color palettes and silhouettes that I can change and update as my mood strikes, and this is the perfect blank canvas. (That is probably a credit to the “get the most for your money” voice inside me). Anyway, love this Calvin Klein Collection number… Stay tuned for a post on different ways I would style it!
