Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

I am soooo behind in completing the Holiday Quick List of Basic Wardrobe essentials to have in your closet  so mucho APOLOGIES and without any further delay… let’s get to it.

 Shoes & Handbags….

Handbags & Shoes..A girl can NEVER have too many!

When  you’re thinking about a handbag for the holidays …downsizing is key. Go small …think a pretty clutch,or petite shaped handbag.

Ganni Beaded Pouch

Women’s Evening Clutch @Heelsandbags.com $22.99

Woman’s Crystal Beaded Bag from MISS36

Ganni Beaded Pouch

Peacock Clutch@Roseinbags.com ($34.92)

Crystalsbydavid@Etsy $79.00


When it comes to shoes and heel height,there’s no better time than the holidays to hike that heel height UP! When you stop and really assess your comfort factor with a higher heels- consider just how much you will be sitting (translation-resting your feet) . You’ll be sitting ALLOT. You sit down to dinner, you sit down to open gifts, you sit down to socialize, so why not go for wearing a higher heel height?!  In sporting a 2-3 inch heel you’ll appear taller and thinner, which is a major win- win at anytime but especially during the season of food indulgence .

Trend Alert-Headbands for the Holidays

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Note to self.. It’s O.K…. actually more than O.K. to sport a wide headband this holiday season. In case you didn’t get the style memo from a few months ago on my blog-the headband is back and bigger than ever. It appears  that the headband has gotten an update with extra padding and oodles of embellishment options. One might even say that some headbands have so much padding that they appear almost  as if you’re wearing a crown.

Holiday Quick List….Dressed Up Denim…

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Dressed UP denim…The perfect mantra when it comes to anything made with denim for the holidays.It doesn’t matter what type of denim apparel you are sporting, be it a jean shirt, skirt or basic jeans…denim can be dressed up or down to your hearts content.

Denim is probably the MOST versatile wardrobe item we have and the trick to make it ultra festive during the holidays is in the pairing of your denim with a bit of panache! Dress up your denim – be it  in pairing with a beautiful skirt, festive top or adding the perfect pump or statement necklace.The options are endless.

When opting for wearing your denim jean- it’s best to wear it in a darker hue for two very good reasons:

A.  A darker jean  will  make  you appear taller when paired with the right heel height B. and a darker hue will  also help you appear  slimmer.  SO I ask you??? who doesn’t want to look taller and slimmer -especially when we’re indulging in holiday cheer.

Ramy Brook Top @ Nordstrom 295.00

I have compiled a number of denim looks that are perfect for the holidays and the good news is that oftentimes we already have similar looks already in our closet-the difference is just in pairing them up properly.

Category: Fashion

A & N Vanessa Emerald Satin Dress $360.00 on SALE $247.47

When it comes to dressing for the holidays,  most of us like to venture out and find a dress or jumpsuit with a little bit more sparkle for all our holiday parties and events.

When choosing the perfect party dress or jumpsuit it’s always a good idea  to keep the silhouette simple but venture into fabrications that are” holiday ready.” Fabrications include Velvet, Satin, Brocade and Sequins -that aren’t for everyday but during the holidays…BRING IT!- they are spot on!

With so many choices available,it’s best to shop early. (Items  seem to sell out fast and sizes can be scarce to find).I could source for days all the beautiful selections available during the Christmas season  but I’ve chosen to feature a bevy of basic styles that most everyone can wear no matter what your size or age.

Red V Neck Dress @ Floral Bridal $80.46

Red Backless Jumpsuit @ Lulu’s $52.00


Black Halo Jumpsuit @Shopbop $390.00

Holiday Quick List..The Festive Skirt

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Tulle Skirt @ Etsy.com $127.00

Holiday Quick List #3 is the FESTIVE skirt. It is always good to have a “skirt on standby” during the holidays because it’s a great wardrobe staple and far more forgiving if you’re having trouble fitting into your pants and or jeans “comfortably” due to a bit of holiday overindulging.

If you’re looking to extend your skirt wardrobe to the absolute max..then by all means go Back to Basic Black. You can take an everyday pencil skirt and give it holiday appeal by adding  accessories and  a beautiful blouse or sweater. Case in point is this lovely pencil skirt with an off the shoulder blouse and statement necklace. FABU!

Back to Black  

You can also consider a beautiful black skirt in a holiday fabrication of velvet or satin and switch up the skirt length for a bevy of possibilities.

Skirt @ Storenvy $168.00

Ezpopsy Black Velvet Mermaid Skirt $68.41


There are oodles of options when it comes to the look of a holiday skirt and the major tidbit of style advice I can offer is to choose something that you can mix and match with a multitude of items ….(translation -don’t pick something to fussy or ornate). Think simple lines but festive fabrications. This is an item I hope you will be able to use for years to come so keep it simple but sensational.

Here are a few fashionable and fabulous selections to consider.


Newchic.com Metallic Skirt ($79.61 SALE $49.61)

Etsy Shop Hidden Room (Available in Size and color of your choice) $60.00 5 star rating!


Tulle Skirt @ Morning Lavender.com$66.99

Chicwish Midi $52.00)

Red Plaid Maxi (similar at Etsy Shop $77.00 Bestseller status.

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion Wardrobe basics

Day 2 of The Holiday Quick List (Your complete guide to wardrobe staples)  (tah dah dah dah..)The Tuxedo Pant..

Before you start yawning and dismiss the tuxedo pant, might I just say that this little baby can make you appear taller, slimmer and chic as can be when  it fits to perfection and worn with a bit of a heel. The tuxedo pant is instantly versatile and can be dressed up or down.

Dress it up with a feminine tuxedo jacket or a great fitting blazer. Dress it down with a simple sweater,blouse or camisole.

I’ve selected three great pairs today all around the $100.00 price point.
