Happy Christmas Eve Eve everyone! The Holidays are upon us and what better way to celebrate then with sparkle, sparkle, and more sparkle. This year I’m ringing in the Holidays with full sparkle and so is my sister.
The Holidays are all about making a statement, whether with sparkle, fur or both! Here I have a Sparkle dress and shaggy coat paired with knee high socks. Annie took a more subtle approach with lace accents on her maxi sweater with an all over lace dress. She added the sparkle with a crown to top off the look.
Braids and curls are a classic way to get all done up for any holiday gathering whether with family or friends.
Keep the color palette simple. Reds, Greens, Golds, Silvers, Blacks and Whites. Any of these combinations can be festive but don’t have to scream holiday if you’re attending a more low key affair and you don’t want to break out the ugly sweater.

Happy Holidays Everyone! From my family to yours.
We’re moving into the Holiday season, surprisingly Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away! Which means Holiday attire. When it comes to Holiday attire there are two things to remember:
Sparkle and Lace.
A little shimmer and a little lace is the perfect combination for holiday attire. And curls, curls and more curls! For Thanksgiving especially, you want to be comfortable in preparation for that food coma at the end of the night. Simply pair a lacey, breezy tunic with your “fat” pants, add some sparkles in the accessories and pair with a cute wedge. Stylish and prepared, that’s how I like it!
Im ready for the holidays! How about you?

A Few months back my school had a 1920’s Gatsby Masquerade ball.
I took this theme extremely seriously .
I started a Pinterest board you can find here. This board was filled with different trend reminiscent of the 1920’s.
Popular threads I found in twenties style was drop waist or shift styled dress, the illusion of short hair, pearls, and lots of glamour. Women were becoming more risky in their attire, raising the hem line and shortening the hair. And if I was going to a Gatsby themed party I of course had to watch the new Great Gatsby movie, which is one of my favorite. I drew a lot of inspiration from attire in that movie.
The ball itself was a blast, and here’s how myself and some of my friends went.
So when it comes to themed parties. Do your research and go all out! I wore a column dress (ASOS) and gold headpiece (ASOS), my mother’s pearl bracelet paired with tights and t-strap heels I found at a thrift shop. My friend dolled me up with some classic makeup and a faux bob to tie the whole twenties look together.
