Happy Holidays everyone! It’s the season to start busting out cozy sweaters and comfy boots! Something great about sweaters is that they are completely versatile! You can wear them with sweat pants, jeans, or skirts! To dress up my winter green sweater from BP at Nordstroms, I paired it with a mini jean skirt to girl it up a little. For a hard rock edge, I pulled on my brand new combat boots (thank you Santa!) and left the laces untied so the tongue can flare out. Accessory wise, a long gold necklace adorned with a feather and rhinestones elongated my neck and broke up my silhouette. To contrast with my green sweater, I decided on a petite plum Henri Bendel bag and lined my eyes in Make Up Forever eyeliner in Black Purple. This holiday season, don’t be afraid to mix and match crazy colors of eyeliners, bags, and basic pieces. Just make sure you stick to a maximum of three colors or less per outfit!
According to Rachel Zoe, teal is the best way to shake up your look this holiday season! From nail polish to eyeliner, it’s an unexpected yet refreshing twist to the typical red lip or rosy cheeks. This color looks great on all eye colors and skin tones and adds exuberance to any look. When using teal, however, don’t create a tealtastrophe! Go with an eyeshadow or liner and keep the rest of your makeup neutral for a simple pop.
This photograph I found on Instagram made me think of how fashion and fantasies have changed over the years. Referring to the Disney movies where princesses wore puffy ball gowns and glass slippers, this modern version of the characters made me see how to incorporate old fashions with today’s trends. It inspired me to design my own collection of hipster Disney princesses and blend two complete different styles into one outfit harmoniously.

Scrolling through Instagram the other day, I came across this photograph and fell in love with it! From the beaded headdress to the dramatic eyes, I felt totally inspired! The intricate accessory’s in the model’s hair interest me and the hint of the veil looks so delicate and dainty. Whenever I get inspiration from a cultural piece, my mind swirls with possibilities of a new collection. Also, noticing her strong eyes, I would say, quoting Tyra Banks, that she’s definitely “smizing.” Her shimmery gold eyeshadow is something I adore, too. In fact, I liked it so much that I went to Sephora and snagged a shade similar to this one! It’s actually from the Sephora Collection Brand and is called Tiny Bubbles. For $12, I got the same shimmery finish as the model’s and it still looks natural and crease free by the end of the day!
A picture that I found totally inspiring on Instagram was the bottom half of a cherry red Porsche Carrera GTS with a pair of patent leather black pumps in front of the door. Not only did I love the contrast, but I adored the whole high fashion concept of the photograph. I definitely got more of an edgy and wild vibe that really got my creative juices flowing and resulted in a new collection that I sketched out! The cross between flirty and daring sparked amazing ideas for me. I hope it inspires you, too!
