Recently I visited Chicago. While darting in and out of stores such as H & M, Neiman Marcus, Feline’s Basement, and Nordstrom (to name a few), I noticed a reoccurring theme – sequins. Mini skirts, shirts, scarves, dresses, pants – the sparkle and shimmer was everywhere!
(Shopstyle has a section dedicated to this trend…)
Roberto Cavalli’s latest collection does not disappoint. His designs are unique, feminine, and fun. Stand out in the crowd fabulous, people are sure to notice a piece from his collection. Take a look:

What is the best thing about the holiday season? Is it the wonderful food? The festive drinks? The exchange of gifts? I think the BEST thing about the holiday season is all the wonderful reasons to get dressed up! Holiday parties, New Years Eve…they are great times to get out those pieces that sparkle, shimmer, and shine. For once, you don’t have to hold back. It’s the time of year to celebrate! I love watching the holiday collections. I just received “The Book” by Neiman Marcus (LOVE these catalogs). I’ve found a designer who seems to epitomize the holiday spirit. Check out some of the pieces from Aidan Mattox’s collection:
Sometimes you have to spend the cash when you want to be the “peacock” in the room. (The one everyone notices when she enters the room). Here are some good picks–available at Neiman Marcus:
Or, check out these hot numbers from Max Azria and BCBG:
The main things to remember are: 1. You need to find the style that fits your body type. 2. Figure out which colors flatter your skin tone. 3. Find a FABULOUS dress that will stand out.
You want to always be the best dressed woman in the room. If you know what looks good on you and how to accessorize your dress/outfit, you will always be the most noticed fashionista at the party. What better way to have a fantastic evening? Plus, your significant other will puff up with pride that his girl is the one all the other men are talking about.
Having been on all ends of the income scales, I’ve shopped everywhere from TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Burlington Coat Factory, to Neiman Marcus, Saks, and Barneys. Put simply, I’m a girl that knows how to shop at all levels. I can say, however, in my 25+ years of shopping experience that there is really no reason to restrict yourself to the high-end stores–no matter what your income. It’s nice to find a nice “investment piece” at the high-end stores. Items such as boots, purses, and blue jeans often require you to bust out the big dollars. It’s much easier for a woman to rock a $15.00 shirt and have it look expensive than it is to wear cheap blue jeans…And, if you’re going to wear jeans that are on the lower end (such as Gap or Express) – these are often nice jeans, just make sure you get the kind that don’t have a label on them. That way, if the jeans look great on you and there is no label to identify them, who is to know they are lower end? It’s all about piecing items together. If you have an expensive, say Custo Barcelona shirt – that is your statement piece. Throw on some Express jeans, with some Bebe rhinestone hoops and you’re good to go…
There you go…you will look put together and sexy/classy/fun…What more could a girl ask for??
