A Kardashian Christmas

Red and green may be the colors most commonly associated with Christmas but this holiday season I decided to spread my holiday cheer in pink and leather. I have to admit though, I didn't come up with this combination all on my own...

All winter and summer long I watched as Kim Kardashian flounced around in leather leggings, pants, and skirts with her new boyfriend Kanye West. It almost became her go-to uniform: leather skinnies and pumps. 

As the Kardashians are known to do everything in an extremely extravagant and fabulous manner, I decided to channel my inner Kardashian (once again) for a Kardashian style Christmas outfit. Though Kim probably would have nixed the pink shirt and just worn the jacket by itself, a cleavage baring ensemble wouldn't have been the most appropriate for my family dinner or the cold North Carolina weather.

Pink Top: J. Crew - Orig. $79.99 /  Sale $29.99

What do you think of the leather trend Kim has been rocking lately? Would you ever give it a whirl?

Tacky But Classy

When it comes to my personal style, tacky is not generally the word I would use to describe it, it's actually the complete opposite.

However, last night I attended a "Tacky But Classy" Christmas party which gave me an excuse to put on the gaudiest frock I could get my hands on!

While most everyone else opted for the classic tacky Christmas sweater, I decided to spice things up in a Tina Turner-esque party dress. 

Now of course this was not just hanging in my closet waiting to be worn. I actually found it a couple hours before the party at a thrift store that my friends told me about and it only set me back $4.99.

Already the perfect shade of Christmas Tree Green I piled on my red lipstick and slipped into my crushed red velvet kitten heel shoes. I also accessorized with my gold geometric earrings from Aldo and gold bangles. 

Because I purchased this dress on such short notice I didn't have the chance to have any alterations made, but how cute would it be if it were a little more tailored to my body? 

Can't wait to begin posting again, I've missed you all!
