Holiday Sparkle (All under $100)!

This time of year has me thinking about all kinds of things: snow, family, christmas movies, cozy nights, presents, and most of all festive clothing. Sparkle, velvet, studs, and warm knits are the trends this winter that fall under holiday wear. You can dress up any outfit with a little shine or dress it down for a night in. The best part? You can find some amazing peices without breaking bank! I chose my lookbook items above from Forever21, Urbanoutfitters,, TopShop, Free People, and Lulus and they are all under $100. So get in the holiday mood by sporting the lastest styles for less, so that you can sparkle like a christmas tree:)!

Style STARs: Gossip Girl Edition

On and off set the stars of Gossip Girl never fail to impress, each one with their own distinct style. It seems to me that either Blake, Leighton and Taylor are taking inspiration from their characters on the show or they themselves are the inspirations for the characters. Either way we can always expect the latest fashions and coolest trends from these girls. Leighton's character Blair is the epitome of preppy and prissy, and even though Leighton herself sometimes dresses that way, she always tries to distance herself from Blair's persona. Blake Lively's character Serena is all sexy and chic which Blake herself brings to the red carpet as well. Everything looks so great on her, especially this Victoria Beckam dress she's wearing above. And finally, "little Jenny" isn't so little anymore, on the show and off. Taylor own rocker style in real life has influenced her character's on set with studs, leather, legs and all. Gossip Girl is truly the only show where I look forward to each episode's looks as well as the stars' looks off camera. keep it up B, S and T!

This year's CMA awards redcarpet was all over the place. There were short dresses, long gowns, tons of color, sparkles, and everything inbetween. My favorite looks from the event were worn by Nicole Kidman in a slimming L'Wren Scott gown; Jennifer Neals in a navy body hugging dress; Taylor Swift wearing her signature sparkles; Michelle Branch in a fashion forward Matthew Williamson jeweled cocktail dress; and Ashley Monroe in a too die for flower printed wrap dress (great styling!).

However there were also some bad dress choices as well. Kelly Pickler not only choose an unflattering gown in a way too shiny metallic, but her newly dyed red hair doesn't help at all. Miranda Lambert looks ways too forlorn in her black ruched gown; aren't country stars supposed to like color?! And Diana Degarmo looks like a teenager playing dress up; the bubblegum pink and tacky gold heels makes her outfit look cheap.

My Halloween Costume!

This Halloween I thought had limited choices on what I could be. Basically I didn't want to buy or spend the effort making a costume, so I thought to myself "what do I have that'll create a good costume?" Voila, "biker chick"! I already owned a leather jacket (check), chain necklaces (check), shiny liquid leggings (check) and black biker boots (check). So what started out as a scramble to find the perfect Halloween outfit, ended up being the most easiet thing ever. Who knows what other characters I could put together with the stuff I already have in my closet? Can't wait til next Halloween to find out!:)

RED CARPET FAVES: Emmy Awards 2009

The Emmy Awards Red Carpet this past weekend was much more fashionable than usual. Stars were taking risks, looking glamorous and wearing bold standout colors. My particular favorites (and it was hard to choose!) are pictured above. Blake Lively, wearing a slinky red gown by Versace, looked stunning. No one but her can pull off such a low cut neckline like that. The most on trend celeb was January Jones, also wearing a Versace gown, but in a mint green color. This structured look is so unique and figure flattering. Sandra Oh always gets it right for me. She wore a gold embroidered gown with a rope detail at the middle. So classic and elegant:) Mila Kunis definitely got noticed in this Monique Lhuillier burgundy tulle dress. I love the short hemline, as it isn't often seen on the red carpet, and I love the color on her skin tone. Then we have Mindy Kaling in a dark periwinkle blue dress. I think the color, the empire detail and the material looks so cute and effortless. She kept it simple with a twist. Last but not least was Rose Byrne in a Valentino gown. I absolutely adore the black speckling effect against the nude tulle. The neckline, the length and the whole effect is a perfect look for this beauty.
