Over the Knee Boots

Hello Hello!!  Sorry for being absent for a little while there, I was trying to figure out my life and what I wanted to do.  Still haven’t quite figured it out but I know one thing I want to do, I want to move to a bigger city so I will try to make that happen.  In the mean time I will try to not be an absent blogger in the future.

So have you guys ever found an item of clothing that you absolutely loved but talked yourself out of buying because you don’t really need it?  Well I have done this a few times and most recently with a pair of over the knee boots.  I love them and every time I saw someone on instagram wearing them I wanted them even more.  But I didn’t buy them every time because I figured I had a pair kind of like them, which I did have a pair of over the knee boots already in grey.

So I just kept the page up on my browser and would look at them every so often and think about buying them.  Then one time I looked and they were on sale, 40% off.  I would link these but they appear to be all sold out.  They are Vince Camuto over the knee boots.  So what I love about these are the details on the top and around the ankles.  They are these laser cut out pieces that add a lot of extra detail to boots that would otherwise not have any.  So long story short after a debate I bought them.  So happy about this purchase.

Now they are suede so you do have to seal them before you wear them in order to protect them from the elements.  I have used a few different products to do seal my suede clothes and shoes and have been happy with it, this one or this one.

But once I sealed these boots and it wasn’t raining out, I was all about wearing these boots out and about.  The suede is seriously the softest I have felt and they just feel luxurious.  I love wearing them, I wore them on back to back days at work, no regrets.  Yes it is getting warmer out so I am trying to get as much out of them as I can before I retire them for the season.

I will say that they are a little tight on my calves, I thought I would have a little room but once I put on skinny jeans there is not much.  They are for 15 inch calves which should provide me with enough breathing room but I think they are a little smaller then 15 inches.

Rachel Zoe Winter Box of Style Review

Hello Hello!!  Now I am going to be very honest that this box was not shipped very quickly so I was really annoyed that it barely came in time for the new year.  With that in mind I want to talk about the winter box.  Now I debate cancelling my subscription for this every time it comes up because it is a lot of money.  It is $99 for each season, which I can do but I always think it is a lot of money.


The winter 2017 RZ box of style is by far the best one I have gotten, it is my favorite.  I opened it and unwrapped everything and was just super excited about what Rachel Zoe picked.  I couldn’t wait to wear the accessories.

So what did Rachel Zoe send?  She sent a box clutch (I chose marble print), House of Harlow earrings (Yes Nicole Richie’s House of Harlow), faux fur scarf, liquid eyeliner pen, essential hydrating oil, and a planner.  (I am least excited about the planner, mostly because I use my phone but maybe it will force me to write things down more.

Box clutch

Ahh!! I love it!!  This is great, you could pick it in the marble with gold accents to black with silver accents.  Both were really amazing and I would not have minded either but I like gold more than silver right now so that is the one I picked.  This clutch is big enough for your credit cards, phone and any other essentials.  I also love that it comes with a cross body strap, so it is very convenient to carry when out.


They are gold and skarlie and they dangle.  They frame your face so well.  These earrings are just so amazing, they can literally go with anything.  In the pic on the left I am just wearing them with a sweatshirt and they feel amazing.  The one downside is that they are a little heavy, but since I wear them out I am not too concerned about that.

In the words of Rachel Zoe from the unboxing video “No one is going to punish you for being glamorous.”   You tell it Rachel Zoe.

Faux Fur Scarf


This scarf makes me feel so fancy and put together when I go out in the winter.  I am not normally a scarf person, I for the most part only wear them in the winter and think they get in the way the rest of the time.  This scarf is great, it is warm and a perfect length. Long enough to be beneficial but not too long to be in the way.  I love that one has a hole so you can thread the other side through it.

Others (eyeliner, hydrating oil and planner)

Don’t get me wrong I love these two but much harder to take a picture of.  The eyeliner is really great, creates a nice smooth line.  I use eyeliner every day so I use it all the time.  Hydrating oil is supposed to replace your lotion, I am not really a fan of the peppermint smell but it does work.  The planner is making me try to organize my life a little more.  It has these great quotes in it every month.  Here are a few,

Rachel Zoe: “style is a way to say who you are without having to speak”

Meryl Streep: “be strong enough to let go and wise enough to wait for what you deserve”

Diane Von Furstenberg: “life is very short. insecurity is a waste of time”

I Went On A Date!

Hello Hello!!  I know I know, surprise surprise I never go on these.  I am a little surprised to go on one.  But it has been like 5 months since my last one so I guess I was due.  Haha.  Maybe in the new year I will be more open to more people and go on more of these, but probs not.

Anyways, we went to this neighborhood of town where you kind of just walk about and get drinks and look at art.  So dressing for a date where we are going to be outside walking and then inside having some drinks was a little difficult, I don’t really enjoy being cold.

So I went with dark skinny jeans because I think they look best on me, I paired those with these grey over the knee boots that I love so much.  On top since my bottoms are so tight I wanted a looser top.  I wore this lose white top, it is a short sleeve top so I felt my my arms needed more protection even if I was going to wear a coat so I added my burgundy cardigan.  Then for extra added sparkle I wore this necklace.

As I said before the date plan was to send a significant amount of time outside, which in January isn’t the best idea so I needed a coat.


I wore my classic black wool coat.  I wanted to wear a hat so badly but I always feel like I cannot wear a hat on a date because it will mess up any time I spent doing my hair. So instead I wore this pho- fur scarf.  I really liked how it looked and thought it kept me warm enough without needing a hat.

Night On The Town

Hello Hello!! So I did not go home for the holidays, I chose to spend Thanksgiving with my family and fend from myself around christmas.  Well a few of my friends were also in town and away from their families so we went out.  This was one of those times where you choose to go last minute so you are changing from sweats into something much better.  I kind of just went into my closet and this is what I ended up with.  I am so happy about it, I can’t wait to wear them again.

I love wearing my loose tank tops tucked into my skinny jeans.  It just elongates my short legs (so I will take all the help I can get there), and makes my waist a little bit more pronounced.  I do love wearing a black skinny jean out, I think they just look the best and also hide any issues with my legs.

So as I stated it is winter here and I do get chilly so I added a cardigan to just make the outfit a little bit warmer.  It didn’t matter too much because no one was out that night, my friends and I basically had the whole bar to ourselves.  I didn’t take a picture but I wore this with my faux black leather jacket.  I did this because it was snowing a little bit and the jacket blocks the wind.

I loved how this outfit looked with these booties (I am biased because they are my favorite), but I think they looked amazing.

What to wear to NYE?

Hello Hello!!  Is it really this time of year again?  I hate making these big decisions (haha eye roll).  But I do feel like I have no idea what to wear, and the only thing that I want to wear is the dress I wore last year.  Which I have already eliminated on the off chance that someone besides me remembers that I wore it.  haha.  Now the search through my closet for an outfit will commence.

A Classic Sequin Dress


Ah yes NYE is all about the sequin dresses.  This is the only sequin dress I currently still own, I find that as I get older I buy less and less sequin dresses, who would have thought.  Haha.  I like this dress because a shift dress is exactly my style, I love wearing these dresses, especially on a night when I am dancing. (I have actually not worn this dress before and I have been looking for reason to wear it).  This would be the perfect opportunity to wear it.  I am going to say I am a little hesitant to wear it because I have some other better options.

A Classic Black Dresss

So a black dress with a twist, this dress actually has velvet all over it.  When I bought it I absolutely loved it and thought I would for sure wear it for new years.  But after trying it on a few time I am not so sure.  I really like the dress but I feel like it is not as flattering to my figure as I initially thought.  So I am still up in the air on this dress.  I think it may look amazing with a leather jacket on a date.  (If I ever go on another date that is…).

An Amazing Skirt Styled Numerous Ways

I will order them from my favorite to my least favorite (now I love all of them because this skirt is probably my favorite piece in my wardrobe right now and any excuse to wear it is fine by me).

Ahh, I love it, I love this skirt, I love this shirt.  I have only worn both of them once but really try to wear them more.  I the contrast between the black top and the gold bottom.  The top accents the bottom really nicely with the deep V that is outlined with gold beading.  I think this outfit just speaks New Years Eve.  Its gold and sparkly without having sequins all over it.  I feel like this is a grown up way to be sparkly.  I would wear a pair of large gold earrings and purse TBD.  My one hesitation, is my hesitation all the time with the skirt, it makes me look short.

I love it again!!  I feel like this outfit has a little more of an old Hollywood.  I think the burgundy lace really offer this outfit a classy elegance.  I love wearing this top and just a bra underneath it is a very understated sexy, because you cannot really tell without looking closely.  I think the top really compliments the skirt because the lace compliments the skirt.  I would style this with some big gold earrings again, purse TBD.

Last but not least this outfit.  Now this was the first shirt I thought of to try on with this skirt, and I loved it.  It has a very classy elegance to it.  Now why is it my least favorite?  Well, after going through the above 2 outfits doesn’t this one just feel a little bit boring?  I get the feeling that it is boring.  Not that I wouldn’t wear this outfit to some other function but I think the other two just scream NYE a little bit more then this one.

Ahh, I love this skirt.  I actually just bought a burgundy velvet top, that should be here before NYE that I am going to try with this skirt as well.

So we will see where we end up.

Italian Shoes!

Hello Hello!!  The pinnacle of the high heeled world, at least in my opinion.  Doesn’t everyone want to go to Italy (or France) and walk along the street and stop in every boutique you see?  If that is just me then I am ok with that.

Anyways, sadly I did not go to Italy but my parents did awhile ago.  Before they left they asked me what I wanted them to bring back for me.  I initially had no idea what to even ask for because I really just wanted to go and experience it myself.  Then my mom suggest bringing me back some shoes.  Which I was all about once the idea was put into my head.  I had some reservations because my mom and I have polar opposite taste.  If I love something she hates it, if she loves something I usually hate it.  So my mom picking out this pair of shoes for me had me nervous.  I sent her some pictures before hand of the shoes I like (pumps).

They brought me back this pair of shoes and I cannot believe how amazing they are.

I said I wanted a classic shoe and my parents delivered with a classic red pump!  I have been babying them because well they are Italian shoes.  For ever trying them on before they were bought.  They fit my feet like a glove, I can wear them all night.

They are from a Barrlla Boutique, their facebook page looks so cool.

Work Holiday Party

Hello Hello!!  So obviously it is the holiday season and my work had their holiday party last weekend.  Now dressing for a work holiday party is always a balancing act, more for women then men.  I want to go in my closet and find something amazing, that is dress but not evening gown dressy, stylish and fashionable but also still appropriate for work.  I try to not buy a new dress to wear for this because it is just once a year.  Also I have to remember what I wore last year and try not to wear that again.  Last year I wore a dress that was partially backless and I thought I pushed the bar too far, at least for me.

I love this dress, I have owned it for awhile just have not had many events to wear it to.  This dress is called a wiggle dress which I love, it just makes me feel like the dress is meant for dancing which I absolutely love.  (It is currently unavailable in most sizes, if you absolutely love it, ASOS has a lot of these dress I would look up wiggle dress on the search bar.  They are UK sizes which was confusing to me when I bought this but I am wearing a UK 10 hopefully that helps, I typically wear a US 4).

So what does this dress do for me that a lot of other similar dresses do not?  What I love is that the top of this dress is a little lose.  It has a little more volume to it and has these big sleeves.  Then the dress cinches at my waist, in doing this it makes my waist look really tiny.  I do not have a naturally small waist, its more straight with a slight curve in, so if I just wore a tight dress it doesn’t look very small.  But with the dress having more fabric on top, cinches at the waist and then the skirt is tight, really highlights my waist.

To brighten up the outfit I wore it with these red heels, I would link them for you but my parents bought them for me when they were in Italy.  Probably one of the best presents I have been given.  They are actually remarkably comfortable.  Then lastly, I added this necklace that is just so sparkley.
