I hate New Year's Eve. I think I've seen Dick Clark's "Rockin' New Year's Eve" TV special once. Yes it's pathetic that I prefer to stay in my pajamas while others are getting tipsy and are joyously ringing in the new year, however, these disco beauties could change my mind. A party with these as the placeholders? Or strung around a chandelier? Or cloistered in a glass vase? Pour me a glass of champagne. These balls are worth staying up for.

Let's face it. Nothing says Christmas like kids. Smiling faces. Appreciative of the little things. Always joyous and innocent. Okay, so maybe that's stretching it but luckily Christmas does seem to bring out the appreciative parent. Temper tantrums and all..we sure are glad they're around.
If only Christmas could come every day.
Happy Holidays.

While I'm not entering into the army, I'd kinda like to look like I am. Khaki/army inspired shirts and jackets strike just the right note once the weather starts to warm (whenever that will be). You can feminize them with gold accessories or super feminine hair. Either way you'll be right in step for Spring.

If you're not visiting The Sartorialist blog on a daily basis yet, you should. It presents daily hits of street fashion from New York to Australia to Spain. Gorgeous snapshots of eccentrically glamorous women and men with serious fashion guts. It will open your mind to all the possibilities just waiting to be found in your very own closet.

Every little girl loves glitter but that doesn't mean she wants to be covered head to toe in it. If you have a discerning sophisticate on your hands try out the J.Crew glitter kids' belt. It can create that uptown/dowtown balance when paired over an oversized army green oxford, grey leggings and UGGS. All I can say is, do they have it in my size?

I don't like to spend money unnecessarily. Who does? Which is why I never buy $25 mascara when I can get the most fabulous one for $8. People say it's all in the brush, but I disagree. When doing a fashion show or putting makeup on clients I don't use the brush the mascara comes with... I have to use the more sanitary, disposable brushes. It's all in how you apply. Place brush at base of lashes firmly, wiggle a little bit and then coat the rest of the lashes. Repeat, repeat, repeat until desired effect is achieved. Now all you have to do is figure out what to do with that extra $17 you saved.

Did you ever wear a dress to a party when Dynasty and Dallas were the top TV shows? If you did, it's time to get your long, pointy, hot pink, Carrington claws on it. It'll be perfect for that holiday party you just got invited to and you know no one else will have it. Just shorten it, subtract a few bows and make a scene...... Alexis-Krystle style.

I like bows. I like presents. What's not to like, right? Same goes for these accessories by Kate Spade. The Bourgeois ring and flats. Festive. Fun. And cheap enough for the bourgeois in all of us.

Girls are mercurial. Team Edward one day, Team Jacob the next. Cherry Crush one day, Pomegranate the next. Boys. Makeup. It all depends on the day. For today, Jacob and Pomegranate are my new favorites. Just like the original Cherry Crush... Pomegranate lip and cheek stain is sheer and weightless but the color is a bit more pink than red. You won't have to stand out in the cold for 2 hours to get those winter pink's just too bad it doesn't come with a Pomegranate martini.
