Let me Tell you Something About my Vest Friend

Happy Friday Fash Dolls! Although this week was a short one it was still just as busy as a full week. Let me take a minute to introduce you to my furry vest (best) friend, Audrey Hepburn Williams. She was finally ready to make her blog debut as the newest member of the Williams family! Anyway let's get to the fashion.

My favorite fall fashion item is a good flannel. I got this one at Macy's last year. Another item I am totally loving is the military inspired vest. This utilitarian chic number is perfect for fall actives like apple/pumpkin picking, hayrides, long walks with your dog, etc. It is fashionable yet functional. I love the fact that I have pockets to put my phone, keys, or even some money for hands free adventuring. This vest I got at my office's sample sale for only $3, what a steal?!

Well fash dolls I inspire you to find your own vest or flannel as they are the perfect fall pieces for your wardrobe.

Till next time!

Stay Sassy + God Bless!

Giving Fall the Cold Shoulder

Hello fash dolls! Giving fall the cold shoulder but, not really. A major trend that has been on the fashion scene is the cold shoulder. This can be seen on sweaters, tops, & dresses. Who would have thought a top with no shoulders could be so hot? Women everywhere are falling for the cold shoulder because no matter your size or age your shoulders will always be a smooth. Not to mention it is a subtly sexy way to show a little skin.

This specific cold shoulder sweater is from K Posh Boutique. I paired it with my new fav lucky brand jeans & black perfed booties. This sweater is cozy yet fabulous. Not only is it showcasing the cold shoulder trend but has this awesome sheer blouse detail in the back.

Try this trend for yourself! Fash dolls I wish you a fabulous long weekend. Till next time!

Stay Sassy + God Bless!

BFW Opening Night Party

"Every year the women of New York (or Boston) leave the past behind and look forward to the future... this is known as Fashion Week."Carrie Bradshaw Sex and the City: The Movie 

September is like an unwritten New Year for the fashion industry. The Bible size magazines can be found in mailboxes & in stores. Fashion week has been completed in NYC, London, & Paris. Leaving the past season behind & looking a head to the future like our girl Carrie said. I had the pleasure of attending Boston Fashion Week's Opening Party with my coworker & friend Rebecca of The Imbeccable Blog Friday September 23rd.

The evening begun with a pomegranate cosmo provided by Wanderlush & light hor derves. Attendees mingled & had the opportunity to shop the pop up shop which included Holly Nichols illustrations, Kent Stetson handbags, & beautiful shawls from Denise Hajjar. Of course I couldn't leave empty handed. Holly Nichols & Kent Stetson launched their collaboration handbag which you can imagine is everything fabulous. One was even auctioned!

The night continued as 14 lucky attendants were live sketched by Holly Nichols herself. Cool, right?! Proceeding the sketching was a roof top Denise Hajjar fashion show. Her line exuded old school Hollywood glam. Her collection showcased different shades of red, velvet, sequins, ombré fabrics, & over the knee boots. It was a stunning show!

Nights like the Boston Fashion Week Opening party inspire me.

Wells Fash dolls I hope you enjoyed my BFW Opening Party recap & my basic iPhone pics.

Till next time! Stay Sassy + God Bless

The 70's Called

Hello lovelies, we made it to Friday! This week's look is brought to you by the funky vibes of the 70's. There are so many trends going on in this look so let's get started.

This look features a window pane blouse, faux suede fringe vest, trouser jeans, & clogs. Hi the 70's called & they hope you're enjoying this look. Window pane & fringe are still very prominent trends. This neutral colored vest gives this look some relief, not to mention suede & faux suede in many forms is huge right now for both fall & early spring. Although I am a sucker for a good skinny jean there has been a shift to bootcut & wide leg jeans, they are the best selling shapes in my catalog & have been seen everywhere. I topped this look of with clogs & a belt!

Now I felt a little daring to throw all these trends into one look but, you don't have to! Maybe you only pair a couple of these trends together. Like fringe & wide leg jeans or window pane & faux suede, the possibilities are endless. In fashion there used to be these unwritten rules like don't wear white after Labor Day. Well these unwritten rules are a thing of the past. As long as you love your look & can rock it confidently, go for it!

Well Fash dolls till next time.

This one is for the Guys-Groomsmen Gifts

Hi Fash Dolls! We spoke bridesmaids gifts last week but we can't forget about the men!There is nothing quite like a bromance. Your fiancé's groomsmen are as special to him as your bridesmaids are to you. These are his boys. At this point you are probably able to laugh with them too! Not only does your man have a bond with his friends but I am sure you have swapped embarrassing stories about your guy, they have almost become your friends too. So don't forget to get them a little something something as a thank you for being apart of your  special day.

For our groomsmen gifts we bought the guys their shirt, tie, & pocket square to go with their suits. We hope that they will be able to use these items again or at least the shirt & tie. Check out a suggested list of other groomsmen gift ideas!

  1. Cuff Links- This is a pretty traditional gift but a great idea!
  2. Cigars- What guy doesn't love a good cigar?!
  3. Personalized Beer Mug- This is nice because it will defiantly get use & remind them of your special day.
  4. Flask- These can be personalized, leather, steel, etc!
  5. BBQ Grilling Set-Guys love cigars but they also love grilling.
  6. Personalized Cap Catcher Bottle Opener-I have seen a lot of these while getting ideas for our guys, it is a nice concept.

Well I hope that this has given you some groomsmen gift inspo! Discuss them over with your future hubby, I am sure he will be on board. Like I said last week Etsy is a great resource for your wedding, including bridal party gifts.

Till next time fash dolls. Happy Planning!

Stay Sassy + God Bless!

Twirl into Fall

Hi fash dolls! I hope this week has been treating you well. I did treat myself to a pumpkin spice latte as the air has been cool & crisp. There is no denying that fall is in the air. I think that every gal needs a dress to twirl into the new season.

This dress I actually got for $3 at my office’s sample sale. Good news for you! There is a ton of trapeze style t-shirt dresses like this one out there now. They make the perfect transition piece. I am wearing mine right now with open toe booties & a fabulous fall hat. When the colder months roll in you can pair a dress like this with tights, tall boots, & a fur vest!

Not to mention this dress is super comfortable. Pick up a dress like this for yourself; it is the perfect fall/winter staple.

Well till next time dolls!

Stay Sassy + God Bless!

This one is for the Girls-Bridesmaids Gifts

Hello lovelies! I hope the beginning of your week is  smooth sailing thus far. Are you planning your wedding or know a friend planning a wedding? I am sure one of the things on your (or your friends) to-do list is to get your(or their) bridesmaids a gift.

Your bridesmaids are your special gal pals. During the wedding planning process they have been through a lot with you: engagement parities, bridal showers, bachelorette parties etc. Not to mention the DIY projects that you have enlisted them to do. You have shared laughs & sometimes tears. Bottom line is these are your girls, your ride or dies. Yes, this is you & your significant others special day but you asked these females to stand up in front of a crowd with you. It would be nice if you made them feel a little special too!

I gave my girls sterling silver nautical knot bracelets from the etsy store BoxingFashion and bought their shoes for the wedding at DSW. Check the list below for other fabulous bridesmaids gift ideas.

  1. Jewelry- I think this is the most traditional gift! This can be earrings, necklace, or bracelet.
  2. Pay for Pampering- Hair, nails, makeup can be a lot. If you have the money in your budget it maybe nice to pay for your girls to get one of these done.
  3. Robes-I am sure by now you have seen the pictures on pintrest of girls getting ready in matching robes. This could make a nice gift that they will be able to use again. You can even get them monogramed.
  4. Drinking Utensil- I use the word utensil because this could be a wine glass, coffee mug, tumblr, water bottle, or travel mug! These will definitely make a nice personalized gift.
  5. Bag- This bag could be a clutch for the big day, a beach tote, or a cosmetic bag!
  6. Hanger- Get them each a special hanger with their name spelt out in wire.

As you have been on your wedding planning journey I am sure that you have discovered that etsy will become your best friend, a lot of these ideas can be found there.

Well fash dolls till next time!

Stay Sassy + God Bless!
