I come in Peace

{the Fit} coat: Zara | dress: c/o Amour Vert | tights: Target | shoes: Costume National | bag: c/o Foley & Corinna (on sale here!) | hat: Urban Outfitters (similar)

Merry (late) Christmas and a Happy Holidays to everyone!! Hope you all had a wonderful time filled with family, friends, and lots of eggnog.

Wore this outfit to a family get together over the holidays. #1. This coat was probably my personal best purchase from Zara to date. I bought it a few months ago and it still gives me shivers. #2. Fashion Eco-friendly, Amour Vert, sent me this dress and I was blown away by the quality and story behind their company. Every item is made in the USA with eco-friendly and even recycled products like soda bottles! (More to come on that later). The beautifully made floral dress I have on is made of “peace silk” and has perfectly shaped cutout sleeves.

And I mean… who wouldn’t dream of wearing Peace silk to an event filled with screaming children, tons of presents, and a whole lotta family. Done. ;)

cherry red

{the Fit} dress (worn as skirt): Topshop | top: c/o CuddlDuds | coat: Zara (old, cute one here) | tights: Wolford | legwarmers: Hue | boots: Hunter boots | necklace: c/o Lydell NYC | bag: vintage Dooney & Bourke (similar one) | sunglasses: Betsey Johnson

If you haven’t heard, Hunter boots have officially taken UGG’s winter job. Don’t get me wrong, I will always be an UGG fan, but when it comes to snow and dirty slush- Hunter’s got you covered (no pun intended).

Paired these red beauties with my gold Topshop dress with an extra layer of what may be the most comfortable top I own from CuddlDuds. Hint: If you need some basic layering pieces, head there now! Amazing quality. Though I will 100% be wearing it in front of the fireplace with a good pair of sweats, I wanted to show how to put a playful spin on a more casual top. Viola!

Hope you all are stayin’ warm! Bring it on, snow!

Giveaway + Bevel Trunk Shows

It is the month of giving after all, and I am pleased to announce another fabulous SOTL giveaway! This time with a new jewelry shopping site called Bevel. Read on loves…

Bevel hosts up and coming jewelry designer’s collections on their virtual trunk show! Brilliant idea right? They have a limited number of designs for a limited amount of time and you have to be a member to buy. They asked me to choose a piece that I loved from the Nicolux collection to feature (umm… easy-peasy, everything is ombre), so I chose this amazing necklace for one of you lovely readers to win as part of their 12 Days of Christmas holiday trunk show!

{About Nicolux} Designer Jocelyn Negron hails from Atlanta, GA but now lives and creates the Nicolux collection from her NYC studio. She designs one-of-a-kind pieces using manipulated fabrics like spandex. This piece was custom dip-dyed using cool hues to create the ombre effect. Jocelyn describes her pieces as clean, modern and natural and I couldn’t agree more!

{To enter the giveaway}

Head over to Bevel  and enter my access code (CHI100) to explore the site and shop the trunk shows! Make sure to leave a comment in this post so I know you entered. Giveaway ends next Friday, December 28th at midnight CST. Winner will be announced Saturday, December 29th. Good luck!
