Holidays with Nanette Lepore

Hello beautiful! I hope your week is going dashingly. I can't even believe Christmas is this weekend! I still have some things that I need to wrap up but it always gets done.
Continuing the holiday outfit inspo series is this fabulous dress by Nanette Lepore. It was a Saturday afternoon & I was flipping thru the racks at TJ Maxx when I found this black beauty. She was calling my name, this dress is everything classic & sophisticated. I of course had to add a touch of animal to make this look a hint edgy. I love the collar & pleated detail at the bottom. This dress seriously has me reconsidering my outfit choices this weekend. I see myself also wearing this dress to work. I love this shape because it falls effortlessly but I can also eat as much as I want & not feel uncomfortable afterwards.
I hope this look was able to give you a little holiday outfit inspo! Till next time Fash Dolls.
Stay Sassy & God Bless!

Lovely in Lace

Happy Friday beautiful! I hope you are bundled up today especially if you are in the Northeast, it's a cold one. Continuing our holiday look series, today's look features this lovely lace number from Betsey Johnson.

Last Christmas I received this dress as a gift. (My mom has good taste) I could hardly believe that it was Betsey Johnson but I just love it. I have paired it with tights & animal heels giving this look a little kick. The dress displays two different colors of lace but on the skirt the lining ends at mid thigh giving this number a pinch of spice.

I am planning on wearing this to Christmas Eve service at church which will be followed by dinner at my grandmother's. This look is elegant & classy with my own touch of sass.

What are you wearing this holiday season?!

Well fash dolls till next time.

Stay sassy & God Bless!

Sleigh Girl

Hello beautiful! Happy Holiday season to you & yours. I am not going to lie to you I have been a bit more of a hot mess lately than usual lately. If you have been reading a long you know that I am an assistant buyer for Metrostyle catalog & let me tell you this time of year is cray. Between prepping for our summer '17 photo shoot & setting up fall/winter 2017 I have just been tired. I don't think the fact that it gets darker out early helps my cause but I am also notorious for always being on the go then crashing. Anyway this isn't a sob story or a rant, I just miss you all! So I am getting my positive pants on & am ready to conquer the rest of this year with you.

My next few post are going to be brought to you by the holiday season & hope that they give you some outfit inspo. I bought this tulle skirt for Ricky & I's engagement photos & other bridal events but I am not the type of shopper to buy an item for just one use. I have paired this Carrie Bradshaw inspired skirt with a flannel, tights, & my fav cheetah pumps. I'm going to wear this outfit Christmas day to my mum's for brunch then to my in law's for dinner.

I know this season can get kind of stressful but try your best to enjoy it. Take a deep breathe & try not to over commit to events. I know we can all experience FOMO (fear of missing out) but sometimes you need to take a minute for yourself & truly enjoy the magic of this time of year.

Anyway fash dolls till next time! Stay sassy + God Bless :)

Thankful for Sangria

I hope that everyone has enjoyed their Thanksgiving weekend with loved ones. Although I am thankful for many things everyday this time of year I find myself really reflecting on how truly blessed I am. Of course I am grateful for my family but nothing quite gets you thru the holidays like sangria, the color.

This color compliments nearly every skin tone and is festive. Here I have this sangria button up blouse styled with a faux fur vest and skinnies. You could give this color a shot in many ways. Try some sangria colored tights, handbag, dress, pants, etc. This color is rich and worth the a shot! Wear it to your next holiday party.

Well dolls till next time, happy shopping! Try not to stress during this time of year. It is suppose to be a time of joy so hold your loved ones close.

Stay Sassy + God Bless xo
